Mehmet Okur is an antelope.

He sticks on the outside and drains jumpers; looks slow but just when you weren't worrying about him, he barrels inside for a rebound, or sneaks inside for a backdoor play. Quicker than he looks.

Your list of top centers looks good, Knickcity. I think Curry needs another year of playing the way he's playing, and needs to continue to improve on rebounding and man-to-man defense before everyone else starts kosher-stamping him top 5. He'll never be the shot-blocking defender; but he could become a good, Bill-Cartright-esque, man-to-man defender. And as BigDaddy says, he needs to dominate good teams, versus the weak teams that he's been eating up.
