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

NBA teams continue to scoop up the minor league's best available big men, with Justin Hamilton recently signing with the Bobcats. Where one door closes, another soon happens. Hamilton's departure is sure to give some of the league's under the radar centers an opportunity to shine a bit more. Or so, we hope.

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