Good job listing pretty much the only exception in NBA history. You can't tell me the Bulls wouldn't have improved with Olajuwon at C and a Longley/ Cartwright calibur 3 instead of Pip. Center is the most important position. Even with all these rule changes that help quick faceup forwards and superathletic scoring guards dominate, a threat in the paint that can also anchor a defense at the rim is still the most important piece to a championship team.
