Exactly. With age and injuries (his knees primarily), his foot speed has been crippled this further moves him away from the pf roll and more into the C roll. Whether he's soft or not doesn't mean he's not a C. he prefers to play inside, with deep to mid post position - that's where he's been most effective.
