He can use his immense strength and athleticism to bully defenders in the paint
and finish strong at the rim but what really stands out is the smoothness he can play with as
well. Khalifa demonstrates great footwork and patience to finesse other big men in the
restricted area and has a decent midrange jump shot that must be accounted for. Other than
that, he has the ability to put the ball on the floor and drive to the lane himself when needed
which makes him makes him extremely tough to guard. Khalifa also runs the floor with great
intensity which allows him to score many easy fast break points on offense and stop them on
defense with his tremendous shot blocking. He also a relentless rebounder who goes up for
almost every ball. If Khalifa can expand his shooting range even further and continue to grow
on defense, he can be the perfect modern-day NBA big.

Khalifa was a monster on the offensive boards if he was near the ball as he came off the rim he was going to grab it and go back up for a putback dunk. He has great hands to catch whatever is thrown to him. On the defensive end he can guard multiple positions, he has the ability to cover a lot of ground with his long strides so even if he's beaten off the dribble he will recover and he's a great rim protector.
