seriously. there is like 1 great big man per decade, maybe two if you're lucky.

can be a big PF I guess, but if you're not at least 6'10'' you can't really count as a big man, IMO.

Jordan never beat the Rockets in the finals, remember he ducked them?

Lakers were on their last legs to say the least by the time the Bulls got them. Clyde and Trail Blazers? Seriously? Barkley lead Suns? Get outta here with that ****. Super Sonics? lulz...Finally a decent big man in Malone! Wowzers! I guess 2 out of 6 isnt terrible.

I consider it a center. While some may interchange between those positions, the role of center is so much different (and much more dependent on size) from that of PF.

Ducked them? How do you duck a team in basketball?

Also, moving the goal post much? Divac was still considered one of the best bigmen in the league.

And he still beat Ewing in the playoffs. As well as Mutombo. What good bigmen did kobe ever beat without one of his own? Oh, that's right, he's never won a championship without a good bigman.

Because a great big man is so rare, being one of the best big men in the league hardly makes you a great big man. We're talking all time greats here. There is no all time great big man in the league currently...

The Sonics were ****ing good during Jordan's time. Kemp and the Glove alone make a team beast.

They took what I consider the best iteration of the MJ Bulls to 6 games, and that was after gifting the bulls the first 2 before George Karl wised up and put the glove on Jordan who held him to his lowest scoring post season games of his career.
