Prime DRobinson, KG, Patrick Ewing, Moses Malone, TimmyD, Bill Walton etc etc...my point is, I'm not taking away from KAJ anything but it's a perimeter game today, it started in 2004 and it coincides with a lack of talent in the C position in today's NBA. Saying KAJ would kill in today's NBA, while that may be true because after all, who would stop him, you can also say that about a number of great centers from the past and the results would be the same...
Yup.

People are so dumb. They honestly think it's just a coincidence that the rules changed (to make big men less effective and perimeter player more effective) and big men stopped being effective in basketball at the same time.
