that's in practice though. if the guy is so solid, why is he fighting for a spot in the preseason? i'm sure he's good, but Gerald Wallace doesn't have the same perimeter and 3 point game as Durant because he's more of a scorer/driver. Brown nor Witherspoon fit in the SF spot unless we move them to a big and they'll be behind Splitter in the 4th spot with not much minutes to even guard Durant anyway or we have to move Jackson/Leonard to full time backup PF/C to make it work.
i don't understand how this writer goes on and raves about everyone except Powell but then says Powell is the safe bet to make it over the rest.
