I honestly hate listing guys like Lebron or Magic by one position, yes they might have started one position more than some other positions.... but they were ping-ponging between 4 positions/roles their entire life, they were much more than just ONE position, they were... everything... whatever you wanted.... they should simply be listed "Guard-Forward or Forward-Guard", its more correct...
and i dont know why B-ball reference lists him this season as PF, yes he does play PF (or PG) during substitution lineup/roster changes in the games a bit... but Lebron has always started SF this season
