And that's entirely arbitrary based on the lineup. When basically every prospect 6'6 and up gets talked about as a potential small ball 5, saying he's not a center is just saying that he's not strong enough to guard a small number of players like Embiid or Jokic in the post.
I mean small ball 5 isn't an actual 5 and is used for maybe 10-15 minutes a game, not 30+ minutes. Embiid, Jokic, Drummond, Adams, DAJ, Horford, etc. Even then I think his skillset is still better for a combo forward than a F-C, though obviously he can be a "small ball" 5 for 5-10 minutes a game, but you don't want him constantly banging with true centers in the paint as it will wear him down faster. I mean even Dirk played center at times when needed though he was more ideal at PF.
Yeah I don't know what strawman you're trying to put up here. Nobody is saying he's a center.
Are you serious? Let's start with TB mentioning him as a 4 or 5, then you responded with him adding weight easily. I then said I think most see him as a combo forward, which is where you said he should be size/weight wise. I was agreeing with your notion that most see him as a combo forward, not a PF-C, which is what TB was suggesting. You were the one that started going off on this tangent that he could guard centers and crap.
