The 3 Types of Bigs—“The Stretch”

The final type of Big that I think is most prevalent in today’s basketball is one that is already a buzzword spoken by basketball analysts across the country. Commonly referred to as a “Stretch 4,” this type of big is becoming a staple on many teams at all…

The 3 Types of Bigs-- "The Space Eater"

Preface:This is the second entry is my "The 3 Types of Bigs" blog series. Once again these are written from a player development POV. Comments/Feedback welcome...

The next type of Big I would like to talk about is what I call “The Space Eater.” This is your individual who takes up space in the interior and gives muscle to your team.

Retired in 1998 from the Air Force (202X0B/209/1N6/1N0).  I played intramurals and base level basketball while in the Air Force.  Played with and against some really great players.  I would imagine you had the same experience.  How's that Masters program working for you?
