Players on a basketball team that are very tall. This term usually applies to centers or the "5" (who can easily be at least 7'0" tall) but can also apply to power forwards (also called the "4") or forward-centers (combination power-forwards/centers).
College Basketball fan #1: I can't believe that the coach keeps on using a 4-guard rotation! Our opponents have an 80% field goal percentage from inside the arc, and the team has absolutely no inside presence! In other words, if the team can't hit at least 50% of their 3-pointers, they will almost always lose, even at home.
College Basketball fan #2: We really need more big men. Tell Coach J to recruit some power forwards and centers instead of filling 4 out of the 5 new yearly spots with point guards and shooting guards.
