Given your height and strength advantage, this will be a skill that goes a long way to dictate the pace of the game.
The Bulldozer badge is more offense-oriented for when your team is on the offensive. It improves your strength as a ball handler, allowing you to overpower defenders where they may have otherwise seized the initiative against you.
The Fearless Finisher badge improves your contact layups.
