Yea, he was a shooting guard and he played point when he was in Atlanta, he also played PG for the Suns when Nash went down in 2005, later on in the season he moved to Center when everyone else got hurt. That season he average 13.3 pts 6.9 rpg and 6.2 apg with 1 bpg.

But he never played SG when he was with Phoenix and if he did it was very brief.

All in all it doesn't really matter because the Bobcats won't pursue anyone until during the draft on a draft day trade or after the draft. By the way the draft is next Thursday I think. For all of those that want to watch.

First of all it is Mohammed not Muhammed, and he has already asked the Bobcats organization to either play me or trade me. Secondly Turk is actually listed at Small Forward not Power Forward, so the Bobcats probably would not pursue him since they have worked out so many Power Forwards for the NBA Draft. Thirdly Diaw is a Power Forward not a Shooting Guard, the smallest position Diaw has ever played is Small Forward with the Phoenix Suns. Finally do you know anything about basketball?

i don't keep up with basketball that well...outside the big names or college basketball, i really don't keep up with it like I do football...so if i did get anything mixed up, my bad. that list came off the top of my head where i thought everyone played at

I agree, I was just stating that he has experience playing in the guard spots as they had him in all 5 spots in that season because of injury's and such. I also agree he's most effective as a Point forward playing from either the 3 or 4.

I'm actually excited about this draft for some reason. I'm usually not too excited for the NBA draft. I'm hoping we draft Henderson. That and seeing who ends up drafting Lawson, Hansbrough and Ellington.

Another thing to take into consideration is the statement Jordan made that he prefers to build the team through drafts & trades and fill in the holes with small free agents. Big free agent signings are not they way he likes to do business.

On his off nights, he can play basketball for the Charlotte 49ers. Nobody would ever know he wasn't Charles Dewhurst.

How's Charles doin for dem 49ers? I used to watch him go up against Steph Curry back in high school. I tell you, those 2 could go at it against each other and made for some fun games to watch.
