Totally understood, TMH. It’s just kind of a pet peeve for me. And also likely an under-informed one at that. But I feel like the whole PG, 2-wings thing is a cop out. I’ve always believed that we (and many, many mid-majors) do that simply because we HAVE to. Either because the teams don’t have a true 5, or not enough depth at the forwards – 3 guards by default. Good bigs are simply so much more rare.
Totally possible that I’m wrong, and that this really is a choice. But it feels like, maybe, we could actually play 2 bigs plus a SF-type next year. But then again, we’ll likely be thin at the forward spots after next year. Worth a big change for one year? Maybe not. Likely just daydreaming.
