    Ben did it with quickness, footwork and instinct. Some of those matchups he won against Shaq were amazing. He never out-bodied him.

    I think Amir has a chance at being one of the new breed of center. Everyone talks about Euro big men, but it's really just the type of player you slot into that position and how you develop him.

    Amir is super athletic and long. He has a jumpshot. I think he can play like Memo, but with greater hops.

    Both the team and the player seem to agree that he's a future PF.

    If there are two PFs on the court, is one a center or are they both 4s?

    One coulda called Sheed our 5 and Ben our 4 last year, no? IMO there's not much difference in that both roles ideally require interior play. The main diff. these days, IMO, is in body mass. Bigger tall guys get called 5s and thinner ones get called 4s. Amir thus far projects to the thin side...
