Yes, the best players in the league have tended to be tall. Perhaps that's because the league's average height is 6'7".
(Also liked the cutoff being put at 6'5". Quite convenient given Bryant is listed as 6'6").

Guards have had a renaissance in recent years. There was a huge dry spell for them until somewhat recently.

IU - no, you don't need a star point guard, but that doesn't mean you can't win with one. There has not been a point guard as good as Rose was (pre-injury) in a very long time.

coldsteel, the Bulls' best players outside of Rose are all forwards. Boozer, Deng, and Noah. Not sure why you would say that.
