there's this funny article from dime magazine.com a couple of years ago which kinda dictates how people come to play a certain position. from what I remember:

PG - usually they're the smallest kid on the court, they have to be able to pass the ball and know how to handle the ball.

SG - these kids idolize Jordan and Kobe, thinking they're them when they practice their shooting and wear an arm brace/sleeve.

SF- typically in between the shortest and tallest kids on the court. they usually have to exentuate how "versatile" they are.

PF - some of the tallest kids on the court but not the tallest. they usually think they're point guards at times.

C - the biggest, tallest kid on the court. they're expected to get every rebound.

just a reminder, been like 2 years since I read the article.

saying sg are sg because they aren't good enough to be pg is absurd. My ball handling was never good enough for me to be a pg, so I had to adapt my game in middle school. When I grew and as a result got stronger, I had to adapt my game again to play more in the post. It was just a plus having been a pg, sg, sf, and pf because I earned many traits which allowed me to exploit my opponent based on what I had on him, i.e quickness, size, shooting...





but I agree, shooting is an art.
Seriously doubt SJ needs a lesson....just saying

depends what level ya play at my brother. once you hit college level things change. I'm 6'1", I can play PG with dudes at hoopdome, or the Y, but in College the PG's are fucking good, I didnt have the ball handling skills to hang with them. As a 2-guard, I was ok, but had I been around 6'4" it would have been much different. Guys are big at that level. Most kids that play HS level, or at the park dont really get to experience what its like to play when guys are big, like actually big. Every once in a while guys talk about how they are good PF's when the play pick up, maybe they are 6'3 or so...they have no idea what its like to play against a skilled, 6'9" 240 pound actual PF... same goes for the guard positions. Know what im sayin?

fair enough. I know how you feel. playing in a highly competitive divison for highschool basketball I encountered and played against (my coach put me at pf sometimes) guys who were 6-8 to 6-10 easy. it's tough at first, and as the skill goes up in college I'm sure it's different, but even if you're smaller you can take advantage of them by doing things they can't, i.e movement, ball fakes, etc. I made on really big dude, their centre cause they'd rotated on the play, fall hard on his back. "broke his ankles" some would say. it was funny and all, but man, I feared for my life.

I would, but it would have to be during the holidays or rather slightly before the christmas onslought, the week prior. I just don't have the time to commute to hoop dome right now. the Y on bayview and sheppard is awesome though

EVERYONE knew that Durant was going to be a stud. You could have forgiven POR if they had decided to take him #1.

Did anyone even know who Ross was before draft night?
I didn't know who Ross was honestly.

Neither did I.

I understand and believe what Claudius said about him getting some coverage... but if he were really as good as people have said you'd have thought that he'd have been mentioned alongside Barnes and Lamb come draft time.

Again... as I've said before, no hate for the kid. It's just about not passing up a dude who could become the next Chandler, McGee, Jordan, Gasol, etc.

That combo of size and athleticism is exceedingly rare (talking about Drummond).

I don't want to sound like an NBA prospect hipster, but f you hadn't heard of Ross before the draft, you weren't doing the proper research. This is the video that watched on Ross that really opened my eyes about him.

ALWAYS draft talent over need...i hope this doesnt come back to bite us just like the Hoffa Iguodala nightmare.

the year before we drafted a forward in Ed Davis, the dude didnt even work out for the team and colangelo drafted him because he was suppose to be #3 pick if not for his wrist injury in college.

now Drummond was suppose to be a top 3 pick before the scouts went sour on him but he dropped to us on #8 and what did Colangelo do? he picked Ross who was suppose to go like 14 or something. if u wanted Ross u could've traded down instead of wasting the #9 pick.

like halphbreedballer was saying, imagine if we drafted drummond like we supposed to and traded PRIMO PASTA for J-smoove or Iguodala...

Lowry
DeRozan
Smith/Iguodala
Valanciunas
Drummond

y'all keep on saying it's just preseason, but lets hope this Drummond kid doesn't turn out to be a beast like Amare and Ross better become the next Ray Ray

I'm just seeing these highlights now. this isnt even an argument.... it isnt even remotely close, Colangelo and his team made the wrong pick. Holy shit. People can say what they wanna say, but this guy would have been fucking huge for this team.

Watching those clips there's just so much to be impressed with.... the soft hands... the nose for the ball... the great timing with his blocks (without fouling).

Lord... could you imagine him rolling to the basket getting lobs from Lowry and Jose?

What could have been.

I'd just be happy to give up Bargs for a true F/C...someone who plays in the post instead of hanging out at the arc. Tired of seeing big dudes shooting 3s while they should be blocking shots, getting rebounds and dunks.

JV and Drummond would've been the future, not primo pasta
