    You don't need a "significant center presence" to win in basketball anymore. Look at the Miami Heat...

    If we land Okafor, the discussion about a center presence will be null and void.

    Sigh.... Looks like more education is needed.... I know you don't "Get It", but this is really becoming embarrassing. You should be paying me for all this education. The NBA not equal to NCAA, and is an apples to oranges comparison.

    Beside, the Heat gets 53 minutes, on average, from their 3 centers, all of which would have a significant center presence for us, and Yes, when they were of college age.

    Any other wild hairs?

    Their centers are power forwards playing the 5 because Lebron can't play the 4 and 5 at the same time. And I don't know if you've noticed (probably because your team has only played Oakland), but the NCAA has introduced new rules that are making the college game more like the NBA than the old college game...

    You guys are doing something right. You have more titles and wins then anybody the last 25 years or so. Running a clean program along the way also. You have this UNC Grad jealous!!

    Oh.. so we can add LeBron's 36 minutes to the totals. Even more embarrassment.

    Oh... and to add to that... I was unaware that the shot clock was changed, and zone defenses are disallowed in the NCAA. Oh, BTW... the NBA doesn't call the hand check like the NCAA does this year.

    Please keep the comments coming... I feel like Mutombo on a geico commercial.. HA HA HA HA
