Sf, they normally are versatile and can defend and play multiple positions.

from larry to pippen to bron, perfect examples.

Still a weird question.

I'd take Dirk over let's say Pau Gasol if we're talking about jumpshooting vs post games, but I wouldn't take him over Shaq, Duncan, The Dream.

While jumpshots encompass 3 pointers and implies improved spacing, a lot of times a dominant low post big is what makes all of that possible by drawing double teams, creating contact to get to the line, etc. I think with all that said, generally I'd take the superior post game but it depends on the level that the players in question can produce at.

yeah I see what you mean, the question is weird now that I think about it.

Depends on what you already have on the court, if your team needs jump shooters to spread the floor than definitely a jump shooter, but if your team needs a go to player in the post than a post player... hence If I had Ryan Anderson I wouldn't want to place someone like Bargs next to him, because our team would definitely have problems rebounding and defending the bigger bigs in the league, But if I had prime Shaq, I would want to place Ryan Anderson to give him space to operate.

So in other words, it doesn't just depend based off of position, but team needs. Which is the number one reasons why I love the spurs. Gregg P, does a great job of placing players in situations where they succeed based off of their talents maximizing their production.

You want your forwards to post and your guards to shoot.
SF is different where they're a jack of all trades type position in they should be able to do everything relatively well.

Now thats not to say a pf cant be a shooter and a guard cant post but i would say thats more of an addition to the more common skillset

Every team needs both, but obviously you would want your PGs and SGs to be better shooters and your center to be better in the post. However, SF and PF could go either way. There are a lot of SFs who do most of their damage on the block and a lot of PFs who do most of their damage 15 feet or further from the basket. There's a benefit to smaller players having low post games and for bigger guys to have jump shots.
