QUOTE: “Those positions (two and three) aren’t much different. A wing is a wing. I will probably guard the best guy anyway.”
COHEN’S ANALYSIS: That’s simply confidence. We saw glimpses of it last year when Harkless was responsible for guarding some of the league’s elite, including Carmelo Anthony, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. If he can effectively slide over to the shooting guard spot and Victor Oladipo eventually adapts to a point guard role, the Magic, in three years, could have the best defensive backcourt in the NBA.
