I think Ross could play a role similar to that which Afflalo should play, and he could play it better because of his superior athleticism.
"Force fed shots"? He's taking 15-16 per game.... not 25.

Athleticism has little to do with how good a player will be. If it was then guys like Harold Miner and Isiah Rider would have been superstars. You're reaching.
