I will wait for the answer.
Did you intend on the answer pun? If so, that's pretty good. Quite a few. Typically, the closer one gets to the basket the more likely he is to score. Therefore a dominant center, who can guard the rim, forces teams to take more outside shots, which are less likely to go in. It's basketball 101.
