The Center Position isn’t Dead

Last of the dinosaurs? Last of a dying breed? A position no longer needed?

The Center position in the NBA is alive and well. There are still big men who can run the floor, score down low and protect the rim. Some can even occasionally score from beyond the arc! And I have proof. If they keep up their current pace, teams will be sending scouts all over the world, to get the next unicorn—in this copy cat league.

  1. Drummond is sick with it!

    I was unaware people thought the Center was a dead position. Why would they think that? I mean sure… Patrick Ewing had them ashy ass knee caps and Shawn Bradley was 7’6″ getting dunked on by everybody and they grandmama… but that hardly means the Center position is dead lol

    1. LMFAO @ ashy ass knee caps! Yea people (because of “experts”) believe the Center position is extinct on on the verge of extinction, just like the running back position in the NFL. But I still see a lot of good players!

      1. Exactly bro. Those people feel as to their opinion is the gospel. But then again most people get their opinions nd line of think from what is fed to them by people on tv. If the person I the magic box said it, it must be true! LOL. It’s hard talking to people sometimes, because a lot of people don’t have their own thoughts

      2. For real – they just let the people in the talking box do all the thinking for them. Its wild. The world is a complex place but they trust teleprompter jockeys with clip-on-ties to synthesize everything for them. Psst. Its awful bro
