Does anyone else suck at scoring in the post against physical defenders. It seems I allways get blocked or forced into a bad shot unless I have a physical advantage.

Mix in an elbow here or there and see if they keep defending the same way!

if tall players are overrated in the draft, then explain how Pittsnogle went un-drafted

They are rated so highly because people (Bad G.M.'s) think that size and position are everything. They think because they got a big P.F. or a big guard that they have the upper hand. When they have a stiff the majority of the time. Most of the time the talent and reach prevail. You can't discount talent and ability to learn in a draft, when most G.M.'s do. It's all about the B-Ball I.Q. and the ability to educate yourself.

I agree you can not teach size it is usually the result of this tiny gland in the back of your brain.

A lot of it's just playing the odds. It's similar to big guys in football. Parcells used to call it the "world theory" when he coached the Jets. There's only so many guys in the world who are over 300 lbs, and athletic enough to play impact football. There are many many more guys at 240-250 lbs. So collecting the 300 lbs is very valuable.
Similarly, there are only so many guys out there who are 6-10 or taller who are relatively athletic, and can actually play. The dropoff comes quickly, and it's extreme. So the payoff in finding one is huge. Meanwhile, there's literally thousands of guys in the 6-5 to 6-7 range who can play a little. So finding one who's substantially better than the field is a lot harder. And the pay off is less, because the number two guy is still gonna be close.
Look at it like this, Gerald Wallace is something like the 40th best swingman in the league. Who's the 40th best big in the league? Now which match up is better: Gerald Wallace vs Kobe/Lebron/Wade, or 40th best big vs. Shaq/Duncan/Yao. Finding a good big is a huge advantage.
