    Rodman played power forward last time I checked. If he's not tall enough then Horace Grant.

    Neither of them are "bigs". The entire nature of the triangle doesn't lend itself to big men get the ball on the block and go to work though. They needed a large individual for defensive purposes but that's it. Offensively it wasn't necessary.

    Because he wasn't..? At least not in the sense the the OP is discussing. KD is 6'10 too. Big?

    Horace weighed like 215 pounds. He wasn't banging with centers all that often offensively.

    Horace and Rodman played the 4 for the Bulls. They always had a true center in there from what I remember
