Default Re: Kidds greatest impact to the team

Positions are over rated- it's more about who you cover and who covers you than filling specific roles. ESP in the nba- in junior high/ hs even college the pg fills the pg role more traditionally than in the nba. At the lower levels just getting it up the court is an accomplishment. In the nba anybody can get it up- many teams use different players to actually "initiate offense".

The reason shumperts highest ceiling is at pg is he can cover on ball, and he can break down defenders and give the other team a mismatch problem. Who is easier to cover? Carmelo/jr/shumpert or Carmelo/jr/Felton?
