He would probably be fine defensively against 80% of the league this year and for the times he gets burnt by height/size/power he would get easy buckets on the other end. Look how much success NY, OKC, and Miami have had with their big SF playing PF. Another guy we could look at trading for in a multi team deal might be Gallinari, who has the size to play most 4s, is a good defender, and would stretch the floor.
That's a pretty good idea actually. 4's traditionally need some sort of post game but in A'ntoni's offense shooting is prioritized.
Do you think he could contest other power forwards though? Like defensively I mean, he hasn't had any lift in years and I'm not so sure he could handle the help defenses he would have to rotate to.
of course its a good idea... FOR THE REGULAR SEASON
what do you is going to happen in the playoffs if you let teams like OKC and miami play durant and lebron at the 4?
I'm not sure what you're getting at Aki, Ron guards those guys anyways.
Are you saying putting Durant and Lebron at the 4 opens up more threats at the 3?
