the general trend is leaning towards playing small ball though. of course there will always be room for players that are 7'2 that play defense and rebound and protect the paint. but for the most part, the center position, which used to be one of the most important positions and where you would have dominant forces such as shaq, david robinson, hakeem, etc. is now very weak and looks to be only getting worse.
sure. But I would argue there are more quality centers today (cousins, hibbert, horford, etc) than there were several years ago. Hell, the pistons won the championship with a 6'7"? guy in the middle, at that time the best defensive center in the game. He failed in the nba originally because the wiz and magic tried to make him into a sf.
