Some Cs are elite complementary players, however: Gasol (who has a poor man's Bill Walton thing going on), Tyson Chandler...

The only thing I disagree with is Marc Gasol...I agree that he's a poor man's Bill Walton but that's true enough for him to be a legitimate all-star PLAYER. He'll never be top 10, but he's more than a complimentary player.
