Perhaps, you missunderstood what I meant. Because I don't see how anyone could disagree with my statement. Let me clarify it then. I believe I said something along the lines of "A defensive big impacts the game in which a guard can't." I meant specifically defensively. Which is why I said, "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." I wasn't saying that a one dimensional defensive big like Mutombo or Wallace was more important than an all around beastly guard like Jordan. Only that a truly dominant defensive big has more of an impact than a dominant perimeter defender.
