Best Answer

GF represents Guard/Forward. Meaning that the player has the physical and athletic ability to play at least one of the guard positions or one of the forward positions while on the court. You usually find this to be the case when a player is traditionally larger than a guard but possesses the shooting touch and ball handling skills required of a guard. A coach can sometimes use this player to create match up problems with the other team.

Example: Francisco Garcia on the Sacramento Kings is 6'6 and can play either guard or forward. Paul Pierce. 6'6, can play either guard or forward.
