Not so sure about that, but Mac isn't small anyway. Power, by definition, is speed X mass, no?
One of the greatest strengths, perhaps the greatest strength, of MacKinnons game is his combo of speed and strength.
And if you'll notice above my list I state that there are different definitions of a power forward, but Mac clearly falls under at least 1 definition of it.
