Lets not forget it isn't that hard to play point up through 9th grade at any level. So saying he played point doesn't mean anything unless he was good and it translated. Obviously, some of it did in his case.

Same with Shaq. Nobody Shaq's size had his handles, passing, court vision and agility. You could tell he's played guard.

It's still true today. Weird how the GOAT shooter has such a flat jumper.

Pau Gasol played PG till he was 14.

i was 5'1(glen davis type player, heavy but quick) until the summer after tenth grade

came back after the holidays, didn't notice i grew a whole foot over the summer (6'2) an thinned out ridiculously

my vert went up astronomically

the pg skills and ball IQ were polished from years of having a height and weight disadvantage

teams thought i was a transfer lol

Hahaha... fair enough. I agree his jumper is a bit flat.. but it's so money. I gotta give props. You guys have all made this thread very interesting with your tidbits. Can a mod change the title thread to something a bit more relevant? Like players who played different positions growing up etc.

Depends on when you take it I guess. Once your growth plates are fused and closed, you can't get any taller. I suppose if you took HGH as a teen or something you would grow taller than you normally would have.
