But, it's like the distinction between an X, Y, and Z receiver in football. It really doesn't matter.
You can call it whatever they'd like, but I'm not calling the nerdy, 3 point shooting guy that played forward for the University of Florida and every other professional team in his career a "center" while he's playing alongside one of the greatest big men in NBA history, just on general principle.
That's like saying, "The 76ers list Charles Barkley as being 6'6", Charles Barkley considers himself to be 6'6", therefore he is 6'6"."
