No restricted arc, so bigs can step in and swat any guy who drives to the basket. No seconds-in-the-paint rule, so bigs can camp out near the rim. No offensive/defensive interference, so bigs can control the rim. No three-point arc, so bigs can control the scoring.
Bigs are severely handicapped in the modern game. It's become a game that favors perimeter players.
today's NBA is all about athleticism, speed and shooting. small, quick guards like westbrook, rose, parker, lawson, etc. dominate the game with their speed. the only true centers left are dwight and hibbert. it's a small man's game now and teams that lack athleticism and speed will get killed by small PG's like westbrook and barea time after time (sound familiar?)
