What are you trying to get at? Boykins, Webb, and Bogues are/were NOWHERE NEAR Jordan like, Kobe like, or Lebron like. You also started a thread that talks about "Tall Center No skills", and you mention Yao as an example? Seems like you need to watch some Rocket games.

On another note, it's true that smaller players are more marketable than big men. By smaller, I mean non-PF or C's. The only big man I can think of that has huge endorsement deals nowadays is probably Yao, but that's more because he's Asian more than anything else. I guess Shaq is as well, I always seem him in those icey patch commercials they play constantly.

What kind of dumb question is this?

He is basically saying would you rather be a 6'0 Michael Jordan or Jerome James. If you are short and you have the skills MJ possessed, you are automatically a top 5 pg/sg of all-time. If you are tall but ****ty like Jerome James, you basically have no shot at making the Hall of Fame. If you have MJ skills, you will probably make 13m+ a year and Jerome James is overpaid but he is still not getting as much as that.

I rather be the Hall of Fame tweener than the big oaf who will be out of the league in 5 years.
