Championship teams had guys like: Bill Rusell, Wilt, Shaq, Kareem, Hakeem
, Rasheed and Big Ben, Duncan, and later on Yao is going to be on the list.
Nowitski, Baragani, Yi, and Okur might extend the range but to they won't ever win a ring without an inside precense.
The Bulls won 3 rings with Luc Longley, Dennis Rodman and Dickey Simpkins being their inside presence.
A team can win without a big in the middle. It's difficult but not impossible.
