    AJ has in fact played the 3 spot (technically) during his first two years here, if you count pre-season. I'm of the school that believes AJ can play that spot; similar to another 6-10 high-schooler (R. Lewis). That's not to suggest AJ is in that class (yet), nor would he be a "prototypical" SF, but I'd rather see him snap up any minutes available if Hays slumps.

    Lee, Warth. You guys go to the Palace. Does Amir look anything near 7'?

    Not to call you out Buddah but in person ( on the floor) Amir looks at best maybe 6'8". Granted I am looking down on him from my seats but he is noticably shorter than Sheed. I think the whole growth span was somekind of media misunderstanding. When Amir was guarding Gason he was way shorter.

    Now Amir does seem to have the same speed as Tay. I don't get why he can't play the 3-4 for us?

    So you are saying that Arnie Kander uses faulty equipment. Now that would be just great for us.

    or

    You are calling it a media misunderstanding if you like, but I don't believe the report is wrong, because there is no way that that Kander could have miscommunicated that kind of information.

    All players who play the #3 shoot 3 points shots. AJ doesn't shoot three point shots except in practice or at the end of a quarter to beat the light.

    Lewis doesn't rebound worth sheet. He averages 5.8 rebounds per 34 minutes a game over his career.

    He is even worse at blocking shots only .5 per game for his career.

    Maybe Kander forgot to adjust the scale after he measured Ben Wallace at 6'9".

    It could be that Sheed is 7' or more and not the 6'11" that is listed everywhere. They never update those things.

    If Sheed is 7' or more than AJ could indeed be 6'11 1/2" and still growing?

    Most people stop growing at age 21 or so.
