Why vote for him?

Mark Eaton was the defensive juggernaut that protected the paint long before Rudy Gobert came to “Swat Lake City”. He is fifth all-time in career blocks. His seven foot four frame definitely didn’t hurt. He didn’t quite have the same 7 foot 9 Go-Go Gadget Arms that Rudy has but he was three inches taller. If Rudy can catch up to Eaton it will be a monumental accomplishment.

Vote for Eaton if you’re a fan of the guy that can snatch Rex Chapman’s shot out of the air without jumping.
