Default Re: Donte Greene's position?

Griffin was really good inside in college, nice post moves (mostly because of athletic ablity and length, though) and blocked a ton of shots. He was a PF in waiting if he could bulk up. Greene is the same way, but I hope unlike Griffin he can have the mindset that as a 6-10 shooter, he will stick around, but he will never be much more than a average backup/part-time starter on a bad team, but if he can learn to play inside, he would at least be on the same floor with the best players in his class.

Donte Greene could be stellar, he just needs to stay in college another year or two. He is not a one-and-done type guy, he doesn't have as much to offer as Beasley or Rose or Mayo. Dude needs another year of college IMO.

On the bench, waving a towel. He's not that great of a shooter, and has no other identifiable NBA skills. Plus, even though he's 6'10, his wingspan is below average, and he plays smaller than he already is, which pretty much negates his size advantage.He doesn't have a good dribble drive game to punish people for playing him tight, or a post game to use against smaller players, or play defense, or pass the ball, or anything that would make him more than a overhyped version of Steve Novak with a lower basketball IQ.

hes a SF who should go between 15-18. way too perimeter oriented for a guy of his size.should be 1 of those guys you say can "take big defenders off the dribble and smaller ones down to the post" but he doesnt seem to recognize that
