Carril marveled at how versatility in all players is still undervalued. An exception? Miami in the Finals...
Carril: "It’s like in the Finals in those two crucial games (Games 2 and 3) that turned it around (for Miami against Oklahoma City). They put LeBron James in the pivot, and suddenly the three-point shooters who were being guarded so hard were wide open. It’s incredible how this is demonstrated. Just take the years where a three-point shooter like Big Shot Bob (former Laker Robert Horry), who was a forward, hit shots that were important to win a title. Then it was Rasheed Wallace. He made threes that were big (for Detroit in their 2003-04 championship season).
Then I think about San Antonio, where (coach Gregg Popovich) builds his offense with a wonderful way to play based around guys who can shoot, pass and throw."
