Larry is correct, Wayne was a forward. He was also a great person and a good citizen. Nothing like what you see in the NBA today.

Wayne was a Forward, not a Guard as listed.He truly was an outstanding player who really was able to maintain his composure even while being a target in every game. He had a velvet touch while shooting, he had the same stroke on every shot. Just totally in control on every shot.
