The ballot is a reflection of the way many teams have adapted to the fact that there aren't enough dominant centers being developed around the world anymore. The fact that there are so few has further inflated the value of those who are playing today. Would Roy Hibbert have been an All-Star in the 1980s or 1970s? I doubt it. But his enormous presence today gives Indiana an advantage over most teams.
