I'd rather be a tall center with no skills and go from there.

You can learn skills, but you can't learn height.

If you're short and have all the skills in the world, you're basically at your peak potential. But if you're tall and haven't learned any skills yet, you still have room to learn and develop. So eventually the tall person can become a tall center with crazy skills, but the short guard can't

true... but look at all the tall centers in the league they all can develop skill if you are one small person wit skill you are more valuable to someone... like money if everyone was rich no one would be fighting and killin over money...
If there are all tall centers that have skill you wouldn't be set apart...

EX:
Earl Boykins
Spud Webb
Mugsy Bogues
Allen Iverson (kinda small)

How many guys like AI are in the league and how many tall bums like James are in the league making crazy money. Tall stiff for me, at least I can get paid. Plus you can learn skills with practice. You can't learn "tall"

See that's what me and det2orl are trying to say. You can LEARN crazy skills. There's nothing stopping you from being tall and having crazy skills. But if you're short with crazy skills, thats it, thats what you are.

There are plenty of small guys with crazy skills coming out of college every year and they don't even get a sniff of the league. While they draft giant foreigners and other guys 6'10"-11 who can't even play the game.

Based on how the nba is, it has been shown that teams value height and potential over short with skills. Many big men in the league lack fundamental skills but they are given contracts based just on the fact that they are big and athletic. A player whose small with skills may be a better player than the bigs but big legit big men are hard to come by and if a team sees potential in a big man they are going to take that chance. I think i would rather have a yao than a boykins or even AI possibly. All championship teams have legit big men. When your short, you will always be a defensive liability. If your big, you can always at least help on the D. I really dont see anyone but AI thats short and getting endorsements.

Yao's got skills, especially for his size. He shouldnt even be included with Bradley and Bol. Teams win championships with a big man in the middle, with a few exceptions like the Pistons when they had Ben Wallace.
Guards with skills are a dime a dozen. How do you think they got into the league if they didnt have "crazy" skills? More teams are built around a big man rather than a skillful guard.
