Pistol Pete had an aura that was truly special. His ability to score points was incredible. I can see how that could appeal to one of today's players (and there are films of many of his games). Of course. Pete thought of teamwork only from time to time and I am not sure he ever thought of defense.
Perhaps more unusual is a big man having a guard as his idol. Perhaps BV was once a guard who then experienced a massive growth spurt....
Many bigs envision themselves as guards, and guards see themselves as bigs
ain't that the truth! especially young bigs who envision themselves as guards side of it. i personally wish more young bigs would focus on producing around the bucket offensively, but as long as they can defend and rebound, it is certainly desirable to have a big who can stretch the floor. we've got several of them and it is going to be fun to watch how it plays out, especially when you consider how physical/aggressive some of our guards and wings are (butler, benzan, hargis, pridgen next year). we have a roster that is going to create some very difficult matchups for opponents as we mature.
