Do you consider Oscar Robertson and Jerry West Point Guards or Shooting Guards?

    They're both combo guards.

    I think Oscar leans a bit more to PG, and West leans more toward SG.

    They also played forward from time to time.

    Their combo guards. One instance of a current combo guard today is Tyreke Evans. He is capable of playing both 1 and 2 guard. He has the standard height of a nba shooting guard and can make plays like a point guard. Even players like Iverson , Drose, and Jordan can be considered combo guards since they can play both point and shooting guard.

    What up T.O.R. go longhorns,

    The Big "O" could score- but he definitely could pass the rock and is more of a point guard than shooting guard.

    Jerry West was known for his scoring and was esp. known as Mr. Clutch. He was a multi-skilled player so he could definitely pass the rock- but he also played with point guards like Gail Goodrich who could pass the rock- so i'd consider West more of a shooting guard.
