I'd like to start playing under the basket more but I'm at a pretty big height disadvantage. I'm 5'10 with a pretty low reach. I am probably stronger than most of the guys but I'm still working one using my strength on the court. Who are some smaller forwards to watch?

I know Barkley and Rodman are fairly small for forwards, who else is there?
Well CB had some pretty crazy athleticism for his size, and just assuming that you can't outjump other players you need to know how to use your body to create space. Zach Randolph does this pretty effectively and is one of the best scoring PF's in the league.
