Do taller people easily fall in basketball?

whenever I play against a dude that's couple inches shorter but is built like a wrestler, I cant even get rebound over them in fear that they will knock me down.

    Not really, basketball is kinda like figure skating. The best players have incredible balance, coordination and timing. Height doesn't mean **** if you got feet like a ballerina. Also boxing out would almost guarantee a rebound over a smaller person

    It has to do with center of gravity and mass of course.

    Shorter people have a lower center of gravity which will result in more stability add the bulky build to it, that's even more stability vs a taller guy who isn't as bulky.

    It's not only about height, it's about how much mass one has too, there are tall guys who are strong and bulky, they aren't going to fall over easily.

    Yes, because they are taller, it is harder for them to jump and can likely have knee problems.
