In spite of what Dennis SchrŲder is doing at the Las Vegas Summer League, I'm told that the Hawks didn't just match the offer sheet to PG Jeff Teague to retain an asset, but that they believe under the guidance of first-year head coach and long-time Spur Mike Budenholzer that he can be Tony Parkeresque. As an aside, it's almost time to dispense with distinguishing frontcourt and backcourt positions and retire the argument, "What is he?" in regard to position or, at least, retire the idea that it matters. Guards, point and shooting, have become homogenized; same goes for 2s and 3s, 3s and 4s and 4s and 5s. It no longer matters what position a player plays; what matters is how his skill set melds with the other four on the floor with him.
I guess another way to put it is: skills matter, positions don't.
What do you think?
*And yes, Rudy and DeMar come immediately to mind*
