RidiculousUpside.com recently unveiled our new NBA D-League player positional rankings, also known as "The Prospect Pyramid."

This week, the continued impact and efforts of Sioux Falls' big man Justin Hamilton helps him leapfrog over a well-known NBA and D-League veteran. What's more, Dallas Lauderdale breaks onto our rankings for the first time this season.

Here's how the centers stack up after week six.

Editor's note: These rankings were completed before the expected call-up of Jarvis Varnado to the Chicago Bulls. Does his midlevel placement on our list beg the question as to whether or not there were better options out there?
