I agree the NBA has changed dramatically since TK, Sr, and Jr played. Yet, I look around the NBA rosters, and most of them have a 6’10” to 7’1″ white big man (usually a stiff) who sits on the bench for the NBA minimum. Can’t coach size after all. Can TK be a Greg Stiesma? I say yes. Many of these guys progress out to the 3 point line and reinvent themselves as 3 point shooters. There are still a lot of unathletic NBA players. I look at a guy like Kyle Korver. Mid-major, 2nd round pick, no foot speed, unathletic, can’t guard, yet he has carved out a really nice career for himself as he does one thing well (can flat out shoot the orange).
