Walker supplants Fortson at power forward
And a point guard who scores more than 17 a game.
Or a starting center who shot 390 3-pointers last season and made 38 percent of them.
Not to mention a starting lineup that, on paper, would average 104.4 points if it simply duplicated its numbers from last season.
Sounds like a Don Nelson team to me, and on a Don Nelson team, there are no position battles. In fact, sometimes, there are no point guards or shooting guards or centers, making way for funny things like point forwards and 7-foot swingmen and three- or four-guard rotations.
Just wait until the NBA gets a load of these Dallas Mavericks.
