Long, lean, position-less, and newly signed Golden State Warrior. I’m describing one of the most uniquely built and skilled players to ever play in the NBA — Kevin Durant.

For those who’ve seen Makhtar Gueye on the court, I could just as easily been describing the skilled Senegalian (except for the NBA part … for now).

Gueye describes himself as a 1-5 positional player. In his younger years, he was asked to handle point guard duties given his effortless handle and elite foot-work for his size. These day’s you’ll see him play any position his coaches see fit.

His perimeter shooting form is pure, and his upside is stratospheric. Position-less players are dominating the NBA (Lebron, Durant, Antetokounmpo), and college basketball is beginning to trend that way (Brandon Ingram). — ‘Position-less Basketball’ Reigns Supreme

He can do it all.
