Not So Big

It's interesting that, of the teams remaining in the NBA playoffs, only the San Antonio Spurs have a dominant big man who plays like a big man. There are aspects of Kevin Garnett and Rasheed Wallace's games that align them with bigs, but neither spend enough time near the paint these days to be considered in the same category as Tim Duncan. And there's a good chance that Duncan will be gone after tomorrow, since the Hornets have been unbeatable at home. Whether this constitutes a trend or merely serves as another testament to the rarity of first-class bigs remains to be seen.
