Kevin Pelton of Basketball Prospectus on Height

Pelton's article deals extensively with the Rockets, and their defensive slide in the absence of Yao Ming.  The conclusions are not much different than has been discussed before, with the unexpected element being that the correlation between height and winning is real, but not terribly strong.  Lots more in the article and Pelton explains it better than I ever could.
