And when you are done tell me why the Celtics lack of bigs beyond KG will prevent them form being a contender.

We need defensive rebounding from our bigs and that is it.

The reality is that the new NBA consists of 2 power forwards down low and no true center. the big, bruising post centers are all on non-contenders.

griz and timberwolves arent true  title contenders and z-bo is 6'9. kg isnt the "post player" this topic is referring to.

First identify what the meaning of contender is. or better yet, identify these contenders for us.

  That would make it a trick question, you could probably cut the number of contenders down to close to 5.

  We need defensive rebounding from our bigs but we also need defense. The post game on offense isn't the issue.

This is a bit of a loaded question, as everyone will have a different interpretation as to what contstitutes a 'good team', especially so early in the season.

Dirk Nowitzki and both Gasol brothers are all pretty good low post bangers that haven't been mentioned yet.

good and reasonable request.

and after doing that, perhaps the author of the thread might wish to change the title to "name 5 post players on contending teams." since the thread has moved in that direction that might help things a bit.

oh, i am a bit surprised that perk hasnt been mentioned yet on this board.

Andrew Bynum - 76ers
Brook Lopez - Nets
Pau Gasol - Lakers
Tim Duncan - Spurs
Marc Gasol - Grizzlies

I didn't list Howard because he has about two post moves and that's about it.  All he can really do is catch and dunk - if you're going to consider Howard a Post Player may as well call Chandler a post player too.

Exactly, which we don't have aside from Garnett, that's the problem.

Also just paint protection in general from any of our big men other than Garnett would be huge.

Dwight Howard is a rather effective post player. Its not a pretty or refined game but he's a good post player with a couple different moves to get hook shots with his right hand. He has also been using his left hand more the past two years.

Dwight's at his best as the roller in the pick and roll but he's no slouch in the post.
