I think there is a pretty strong correlation here between post players over 6 foot 10 and winning NBA championships. Just because you have one doesn't mean you will win one, but it doesn't seem like anyone is winning them without one. Only exception is the 2004 Pistons with B Wallace an undersized high energy rebounder. I think you look at these teams, your seeing an elite post player and sometimes an elite guard. Moultrie is clearing 6 foot 10, outside of Davis I think he is the only legititmate player at that height who averaged a double double last season. 15.9 ppg and 10.3 rpg. I think we pass on Drummond, he has the size but he reminds me of Hasheem Thabeet. I think Drummond's mentality is never going to cut it, his jump shot has the form of a guy who has never practiced a day in his life. Have to find somebody else; I think Arnett Moultrie looks solid. 6'11, 15 ppg and 10 rpg. I could see the guy producing similar to Greg Monroe.
