I'm not concerned about if he'd be a better SG than SF for particular NBA teams.
lol I'm not even going to dignify the argument of saying if a guy can reach a "maximum defensive potential." Blah blah blah, forum-speak. What does that mean really? Different ways of saying the same thing to make you look better; not buying it.
There's nothing overwhelming nor definitive to say he can't succeed at playing SG. Just because he knows zone defense doesn't mean he doesn't know how to play man defense. He's an excellent playmaker, since he was the star that lead Syracuse to unexpectedly be one of the better teams this past season. After reviewing the argument the criticism comes down to passing ability and ball handling, which has not been substantiated beyond stating this opinion and is otherwise weak as it pertains to a SG on a team that does not require these skills out of a third player in the backcourt (the first two being Devin and Terrence Williams).
If a statement is worth saying in a thread, it's worth giving an explanation.
Dude I don't even know what you're talking about. Forum speak?
You love to argue for the sake of it in general and time and time again I find myself being grilled third degree for my opinions.
This is that same schtick you pulled with me with Cole Aldrich when you called me out for calling him unathletic and said repeatedly that he was basically an exceptional athlete.
So now Wesley Johnson is an, "excellent playmaker"?! And your reasoning is, "he was the star that lead Syracuse to unexpectedly be one of the better teams this past season"?!!!
I guess Kevin Durant and Dwight Howard were excellent playmakers as well then?
Such a joke dude.
Saying Wes Johnson has a weak handle and isn't a good playmaker is not opinion, it's fact, it's that simple, no matter what type of "forum talk" spin you want to put on it.
I don't see what's so hard to accept.
I mean if I said James Anderson has a relatively weak handle or that Cousins can't jump high, or that Derrick Favors has little post game, or that Al Farouq Aminu had a suspect jumper, these statements would not be considered opinion, they would be considered fact, as are the criticisms of Wes Johnson.
Get it now?
