Larry Brown's ideal roster

Good article in SI about what Bobcats coach Larry Brown prefers in terms of personnel.

According to the article, ideally, Coach Brown would like a roster that includes:

-- Three guards, two of them natural points, whom he can play together.

-- Two athletic small forwards, one of whom can swing to power forward, one of whom can swing to two guard.

-- Four long players up front who can shuttle interchangeably between power forward and center.

-- Gutty guys who enjoy playing a singular role, the grizzled vet, the underdog.

-- The ultrasmart player over the ultratalented player.
