Mike Dunleavy was on Tirico and Van Pelt this morning addressing the #1 pick. (Hat Tip: Tas Melas/Sports Radio Interviews):
Dunleavy doesn’t rule out playing Griffin as “a big 3.” I’m still very skeptical you can play him there, given that he has no shooting range. Quickness is essential to playing the small forward position — and Griffin has that — but the ability to leverage that quickness with the capacity to hit from beyond 12 feet is also crucial. I have no doubt that Griffin will expand his range, but right now he’s exclusively an inside threat.
