I remember a couple of different groups. One group asserted that DJ would likely not contribute. Another group asserted that JB would never play DJ at the 4 because he was not a JB 4 and JB does not play 2 bigs. I am assuming Champions is referring to the latter group but I do not in any way remember who, or care to remember, who belonged to which group.
And no, of course it is not crazy to say CC will play minutes at the 5 but I do think it is crazy to say things like “CC is a rim protecting 5(end of story)” and I especially do not agree with some of the peices of evidence that have been given for the judgment , like, Wagner’s struggles at 4 somehow proves something about CC. High school CC would probably score just as good as last year Wagner on the NBA agility test from what I have seen.
[edit: I just looked up past forum conversations from last year. I am not sure what group Champions is referring to but apparently the notion that JB would not play two bigs at once and DJ would play the five was coming pretty exclusively from one poster. However, there was a general beleIf that DJ’s playing time would occur as a necessity because we had the 5 covered and needed Wilson as a non ideal backup 4 in spot minutes. Some People were very concerned he would not be capable of defending any position lower than 4 if even able to guard 4. ]
