Re: Hey trader Danny, you do know there are not enough mins to go around at 4 of the 5 positions right now correct?

In response to hops29's comment:
DA just loves tweeners guys. I think his goal is to have a full roster of positionless swing players. He seems to hate true Centers, true point guards, shooting guards with size, and athletic bigs.
Dont be surprised if he trades Rondo for another undersized PF that will be forced to play C. Or another 6'3" SG that he tries to convert into a PG (again).
His dream starting lineup = 3 small shooting guards that cant shoot, and 2 small PFs that can't Jump. He's close! He just needs to trade Rondo!
Yeah exactly, because Danny clearly hates Rondo and/or Rondo is definitely not a true PG....
Thanks for the ONE example of a guy who has a legit position, and who Danny has been floating around the trade market for the better part of the last 3 years.
Here are some examples (plural) of some other guys he's picked up over the years.
Big Al 5/4, Olynyk 4/5, Sully 4/5, Humpcrap 4/5, Baby 4/5, Powe 4/5, Wallace 3/4, Jeff Green 3/4, Bill Walker 3/4, Gomes 3/4, TA 1/2/3 (remember when DA tried to convince everyone he could play PG?), Ray Allen 2/1 (again an obvious 2guard that he tried to force into running the point), AB (Im seeing a pattern), Allen Ray 2/1, Lester Hudson 2/1, Gabe Pruitt 2/1, TWill 2/1, House 2/1, Barbosa 1/2.
Im sure I've missed a couple. These guys all fall into one or two categories. Most don't have a true position due to being undersized or unathletic (Baby, Powe, Gomes, Sully, Hudson, Pruitt...)
Or they have a true position and DA and/or Doc decided to force them to play other positions experimentally (Ray, TA, House, Green, BigAl you could even throw KG in there)
So yeah, Rondo is def a true PG. My post was mostly satirical but you have to admit there is a pattern to the guys he picks up and he has a sweet spot for players that don't fit perfectly into a particular position. I mean how many undersized SGs does he have to get before he learns that it just doesn't work.
