Default Rashard to play PF

Quote:
A big transition for Lewis will be playing predominantly at power forward this season as opposed to his normal small forward position. He is having to make the switch after Battie was deemed likely out for the season with a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder. And because the Magic want to surround Howard with long-range shooters, playing Lewis at power forward allows them to keep Hedo Turkoglu at small forward.

Wow...Lewis will get dominated every night, because of that extremely small frame playing up against guys like KG, Z BO, JO, and others...

They should play a 2-3 or a 2-1-2 zone

battie is out for the season?

i know battie isn't exactly an allstar, but they are SO thin up front i can't see them making the playoffs.

foyle, gorat... i think thats all they have for backup PF's and C's.

look for howard to boost his rebound #'s up to 15 a game.

I certainly agree with your statement Lewis is no Bosh, he will get abused every night in the low posts. I have never seen Lewis consistently played the PF role in the NBA and it might cause some major concern on the Magic's coaching staff.

I said he probably would play PF about a week ago. He could have an advantage over many bigger slower PF.

Welcome back in the forum VCMBP1551 and next time control your tempers my friend. If ever someone try to insult you in the Main Forum just press the ignore button or just report it to Mr. Insidehoops because you will never win a retarded argument if you continue to argue in the internet.

Well anyway I see Rashard's rebounding numbers going up from the 6.6 average last year and his career high of 7.0 I predict him averaging around 8 rpg this year. His scoring will also go up because I think he will play better with Dwight Howard than he did with Ray Allen. On offense I expect him to play more as a perimeter player anyway.

Rashard can't guard the 3 spot either. I don't see what the big deal is.

Playing Indiana actually should be good for Rashard because Jermaine will probably match up with Howard while Rashard matches up with another perimeter big man Troy Murphy.

People saying that Rashard isn't strong enough to guard powerforowards and act like Bosh and KG, are bruising post players. Heck, even Z-Bo is more of a perimeter player these days.
