[QUOTE=Slick Pinkham;1581947]Point is he 's better at defending SFs . He won't be spending nearly as much time on the court guarding them when he's playing alongside Danny. So no he won't be guarding the same players. Danny can't keep up with very many 2 guardsHe guards the best opposing wing, no matter what, so he is chasing exactly the same player around. Do we have to keep repeating this fact?
That's a very backwards way to develop a player. We shouldn't force our best player to learn how to play a power game when he's just now figuring out how to use his speed and quickness against guys his height. Why make him adjust when he's the our best player and All-Star? I want him to comfortable, and he's said himself he feels more comfortable at the 3 because of matcups. People seem to forget that.playing the 2 allows him to use his huge length advantage, with no speed disadvantage either, against nearly every player at his position, whereas some 3s he has to guard are much heavier and stronger (see LBJ).
His defensive rebounding numbers should be the same per-minute once Danny comes back, since (again) he is guarding and boxing out the opposition's best wing player, same as always. [/
Again, he'll be guarding SGs more often so not only will he be in worse rebounding positions, he won't able to keep the opposing SF off the boards.
Disagree. One of these days maybe, but not right now. He's not a good enough post player.Playing the 2 on offense should greatly help him as a passer and playmaker, with a huge size advantage over the man guarding him.
Please do.I'll stop there too.
