The Demise of the ‘Big Man’ in the NBA

The Los Angeles Lakers have been to the NBA Finals for three consecutive years, they are the defending back-to-back champions, and are arguably the most successful franchise in NBA history.

Kobe Bryant has been instrumental in the success of the current Lakers team—he is the team’s MVP, best player, and crunch time assassin. However, the past success and future hopes of the franchise rests on the production of their big men.

Kobe Bryant will always be Kobe Bryant. As Kobe continues to get older and tinkers with his game, I have no doubt he’ll remain effective for many more years as an offensive assassin, defensive stopper (at times), and team leader. But if the Lakers want to win another championship and if they want to continue contending for championships after this upcoming NBA season, they need to take a look at history.
