Reduce Start 2 Centers Requirement to 1
Reduce Start 2 Centers Requirement to 1.
In today's "positionless" NBA where the classic Center position/role is undervalued, has evolved to encourage more and more wings playing at the 5 (C), and where Center talent is always shallow, it makes no sense to require 2 starting Centers.
This forces a lot of teams to add far too many fringe players with C eligibility who normally wouldn't be worth rostering. These are not fun players to have to roster to due to an excessive starting requirement of 2 Centers. The cost/benefit and fun factor is just not worth it.
ESPN has long had 3 Utility and 1 Center requirements - at least they've been mirroring the real changes to NBA basketball and the C position's evolution and scarcity for several years now, unlike Yahoo.

Yahoo has known about this issue for a long time. An easy fix would be require 2 point guards instead of 2 centers. This could be done by having flex positions for wings and bigs instead of for guards and forwards. I mean c'mon, every basketball team needs a backup point guard.
