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

This week was quite a busy one for some of the league's best big men. Thus, our Pyramid at the position has been rather depleted with many of the top ranked players moving on up to the NBA. Still, this allows for some other youngsters to step up and prove themselves instead.

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