Strong , Experienced , with an outstanding inside game. Curtis can hit the 20� but his inside game is just spectacular, facing the basket or using spin moves he will score or draw a foul. He will always shoot with 50%+ from the field and improved his free throw shooting to 70%+. He runs very well the floor and is one of few big man that can run at full speed catch a pass and score, avoiding travelling violations or charging fouls. The only reason Curtis is not playing in the NBA is a couple of inches. That makes him a great option for all other leagues.
