Brand is too short
The thing is, all these guys have attributes that make up for those physical shortcomings.
Shaq is WAY quick for a guy his size and has soft touch around the hoop.
Garnett plays the game in such a way that he doesn't need a lot of bulk.
Iverson is freaking amazingly fast, and he's also playing point guard a lot of the time, if not all the time. No problem with his size at that position.
Both Wallace and Brand, especially Brand, have freakishly long arms, even by NBA standards.
