Default The game is changing...

As you can see, no team in final four (counting OKC) has dominant inside scorer.

Years before, teams that won in playoffs had a dominant big.

If you can get a defensive minded C with some all star perimeter players, you can go far in playoffs.

The game is changing people!!! (from playoff perspective). Taking notes for a proper rebuild!

"Changing"? Maybe... maybe not.... the Bulls used that blueprint to perfection to the tune of 6 titles.

The "Bad Boy" Piston teams did too.

if ur referring to the pistons team that beat L.A in 03 i think it was, ur mistaken. they had one of the most formidable fontcourts in the NBA with Bwallace in his defensive prime and R wallace in his offensive prime. it was a match made in heaven

Rasheed was not an inside scorer. Both Pistons teams fit that bill.

And the final four isn't set yet. There still could be a team with an inside presence moving on. Overall though, the new rules have made it harder for everyone to score inside. Speed has become more important than size in that respect, on both ends of the court. Kemba would work out just fine in other words.

Talent and team game wins championships, not one specific position.

I dunno, how many championships did the Spurs win with Duncan? Speed on the wings + a dominant post player will give you rings.

And my point was that they don't. Not ALL of the championship teams from the past anyway.

The Lakers, Spurs and Rockets used a prime time big man.

The Pistons and Bulls did not.

Seriously the game is changed but last year finals were decided by the Celtics missing Perkins against a team with some big bodies inside

I would consider Boozer to be a dominant inside scorer.

Anyway, the game has always been about having dominant perimeter players, especially since the 3-point line was introduced and new rules were implemented to prevent things like hand checking. Even the championship teams that had dominant big men (e.g., Houston, San Antonio, LA Lakers, Boston Celtics) also had excellent perimeter players.

What is happening this season isn't really anything new.

Why?

His point is sound.

Neither team relied on dominant low post play, much like the four semi-finalists this year.
