With the NBA season coming, One man builds the perfect player: Have you ever noticed Pau Gasol’s arms? Or Bobby Jackson’s feet? Sixers Director of Player Personnel Tony DiLeo has. In fact, he notices everything, about every player in the NBA, and what makes each one special. And while he’d like to have a team that embodies the incredible qualities and skills of Kobe, Shaq, Tracy, Allen, and Vince, he tells what he would steal from the league’s stars to build his complete player.
