I think the post-up game is not very effective in general anymore, with the lane being more crowded and what used to be illegal defenses now being usable, so that players do not have to commit to the double until the offensive player makes his move. That takes away the threat of a pass and leaves the guy posting up going up against two or three defenders. It hasn't even worked very well for Lebron.
