    In the East...that's a very important detail to add. It could be worse, I could be defending the NBA careers of Jan Veasley and Otto Porter.

    Agree. That back of his is a ticking time bomb.

    I think his point was about centers, but then he switched it to big men. Tim Duncan is not a center.

    Duncan is much in the same mold as Aldridge. A tweener but in the more uncommon position between power forward and center.

    Didn't see this posted yet.

    Two names I'm hearing for the Heat at 26 - UConn's Shabazz Napier + Iowa State's DeAndre Kane. Miami could sell pick but eye proven PG.

    First round for Kane would be huge.

    Sure looked to be playing center out there to me. He hasn't played PF for several years.

    http://vorped.com/bball/index.php/pl...131-Tim-Duncan Found this "last 30 days" shot chart. Sure looks like the shot chart of a center to me.

    First off all, Tim Duncan is a PF not a true center. Second, if you think Tim Duncan was a huge contributor to the Spurs title run this year, you're wrong. Hell, that offense ran just as well with Thiago Splitter in there. Offensively, I don't think I'd even put Duncan's contributions in the top 5 on his own team.


    All I'm saying is the need isn't there in the NBA for a big, throw-it-down-on-the-block big guy anymore. Teams are built around point guards and wings.

    The back and feet of every 7 foot person, let alone NBA center, are a ticking time bomb.

    I actually lean toward agreeing with trollcoach on this one.

    Tim Duncan takes about one shot a game outside of five feet. Call him whatever position you want. He is a throw it down in the block big guy who also passes well. The offense ran well with Splitter in there because the rest of the Spurs B team was way better than every other B team in the league. If you are arguing that 15 ppg (2nd on the team and almost 3 ppg more than third on the team) is a Top 5 contributor on your team then you are just arguing with me because it's me. Embiid has the physical tools and talent to be much more than just a dump it in the post kind of player. He was torching teams left and right last year in his THIRD year of basketball ever. The kid will be scoring from everywhere on the floor in three more years.

    Re: NBA Draft Rankings

    Centers remain valuable, just more so for providing rim protection and anchoring defenses, not necessarily the offense. Howard, pre-meltdown Hibbert, Marc Gasol all fall into that camp. Hell, look at how many experts have pinned Golden State's playoff chances on Bogut's health the last couple years. The post-championship Mavs didn't fall apart because they lost Tyson Chandler's offense. And so on and so forth.
