There's no reason why someone can't be a SF - or fill that type of role - on offense, and play PF - or fill that type of role - on defense. It's not like there's some rule or law that says the PF on offense also has to be a PF on defense. At least not as far as I know. Especially today, when 3-point shooting has become more important at all levels of the game. If a guy like Holmgren is (theoretically) your best outside shooter, then put him outside on offense and let him shoot. On defense, if he's the best fit in the middle, then he can be a C or post on defense.

    Obviously, this only works with a versatile player who can fill different roles.
    Again, why can't you shoot 3s if you're playing PF? You don't need to have two guys glued to the paint. If he's the SF on offense and PF on defense, that means your PF on offense needs to be able to defends SFs. You're making things weirdly/overly complicated. Just let your PF shoot and play from the outside if that's what they're comfortable doing.

    I wouldn't read into #RowTheBoat. Most people are starting to associate Row The Boat with the University of Minnesota as a whole. It's a fun saying, it's not like he's confused about who's saying it is.

    2021 Elite prospect center @ChetHolmgren is one of the most gifted all-around centers i have seen at his age. Should be considered for 5-star status by @247recruiting

    He should be watching tape of Moritz Wagner. I am not sure what Wagner weighed at the same age? Wagner eventually added inside moves and enough weight to play inside and out.

    Agreed. Michael Jordan spent more time on the block than any of the Bull’s centers, but that doesn’t mean MJ was a center.

    I find it kind of odd that it took the Gophers as long as it did to offer a local 7'1 kid who plays with Suggs...

    Are you serious Clark?! Chet just finished his freshmen year of high school. I'm impressed we offered as early as we did, regardless of him being 6-11.

    If he had offered him a year earlier, people would be complaining that he offered someone who isn't even in high school yet.
