I could see him being a dominant post player in a few seasons, and I wouldn't be suprised if he proved unstoppable in the post in a few series this post-season. I can't help but think that in a 7 game series, Miami is going to hang their hat on a Lebron/Pierce type of match up in the post.

You are correct though, you just don't see consistant post ups unless it involves players with significant athletic advantages. Like Dwight, Yao or Shaq.

Their aren't any more Corliss Williamsons in the league, 6'6 SF who get to operate in space in the post.
I think Scola is one of the exceptions in this case. He has some great post moves. But you don't see foot work like his everyday.
