in my opinion the reason the post game is dissapearing slowly is that more and more people realize that it's not an efficient style, unless done to perfection, like duncan does.

there are countless 40% 3pt shooters in the league, and only a handful of 60% around the basket, and almost none who doesn't live on put backs.

Yet, points scored via 40% 3s are exactly as efficienct as points scored at 60% in the low post. And we got a 40% 3pt shooter for basically free, while a 60% 22 years old center would cost 15 million a year (bynum).
