I speak from firsthand experience. I was a non-factor for years cause I was a big slash slow PG until one my coaches said, hey you've got length, try playing forward instead of PG for once in your life. Scoring avg went from 9 to 17. This year, first two games I play forward and avg 25 per, third game our PG wasn't there so I had to fill in, only got 13 (on 6 shots and 4 FTs).
It's tough to be effective when you're misused and that was Diaw's problem. He wasn't comfortable where he was, Phoenix gave him the chance to use his skills.
That could be true, but is it possible that the Suns' system allows anyone to shine...James Jones
