*Indicates Pro Bowler
Curley "the Stump" Culp was a mountain size in his day, 6 Pro Bowls.
Kragen lighter weight at actually 267 (still not that light for 20+ years ago, only single Pro Bowler.
Ted Washington mountain size in any day was between 365 and 400 pounds, 4 Pro Bowls.
Jamal Williams mountain size at 348, 4 Pro Bowls
Jay Ratliff relatively "light" at 293, 4 Pro Bowls
Ratliff and his elite skills are definitely an outlier even in Wade's career...............and Earl Mitchell is no Ratliff, nor has he shown anything that can make one believe that he can ever be a Ratliff.
The Big Man in the middle has shown superiority for a reason, the same reason we need one on this team. Wade needs to stop trying to prove a null equation.
