We discuss a lot of team issues here. The PG situation I'm sick of discussing and I haven't heard this one yet; the SF position.
I'm inclined more and more to think that Nelson feels we have a problem there. Most people think we are loaded with SF & SG but are we? Or, do we have too many SG's who play SF?
Nelson said again last night that moving Jackson to the 2 would allow him to play a bigger up front. We have Goose at Center, and I don't believe for a second he still thinks Randolph will play SF. I think he admitted toward the end of the year that Randolph was more natural at the PF. So that brings us back to SF.
Jackson & Maggette at SF don't rebound enough. Jackson is tall enough but he likes to break out and get to the fast break too much. Maggette is big enough but kind of short for a SF at 6'6 when there are so many SG's taller than him. Buike rebounds well and actually does everything well but, is he really starter material? So other than him, do we have any true SF's? Crawford, Marrow, and Bellinelli are all 6'5" shooting guards.
With more and more teams playing 6'8"-9" SF's are we behind the evolution? Is this a larger issue than we realize? Have we over looked this problem? Your thoughts please.
