The triangle can favor big guards, because it really doesn't call for prototypical point guards to initiate the offense. That's why Pippen could have come in here next year and seriously been labeled a Point Forward. Pretty much anybody can bring up the rock and initiate the offense when it comes to the triangle....the triangle is unlike any other offense because you don't need a traditional point guard to initiate the offense. That is why it is so easy to slide Kobe over to the 3 spot last year, when Fox was out and George was hobbled. Fisher is in no way a typical point guard (he is more like a shooting guard), but he still was labeled under that position because of his body type. The only problem that lies in labeling proper positions is on the defensive side. The offense has the triangle, so anybody could initiate it, but on defense, a point guard on the other team is small and has great handles, and it would be harder for Kobe/Pippen/Rush to guard him. So this is where the typical PG will come in. That is why Payton was a priority to us even though our glaring problem was PF. Payton can score, and there's no doubt about that, but he made his name, The Glove, off of his defense. Where Fisher got scorched last year, Payton will succeed. So in a way everybody, Lakergyrl, Lakerfan, and Swolswol were all right, but the triangle is just a real complicated offense and thats where everybody has a difference in opinions.
