    The NBA center is a dead position, with no revival in the near future.

    Yeah, it doesn't help that players are returning for next year due to a potential lockout.

    Actually next years draft with Fab Melo, and Andre Drummond is one of the best center drafts in a long time.

    Pre injury Kyrie Irving really impresesd me. If you guys are just basing his talents on what you saw during the NCAA tourney then you guys are misjudged but I will still admit he his being overated.

    You're kidding right?

    Drummond is 6-10 and averaged 15-9 in his junior year of HS. Melo averaged 2.3 ppg and 1.9 rpg in his freshman year in college.

    If that is what is on the horizon, Dwight is going to be a 30-20 guy over the next 10 years of his career...

    A better centre mention would have been Jonas Valanciunas, Enes Kanter, Donatas Motiejunas, or Bismack Biyombo. even Lucas Nogueira.

    Never heard of any of them, and I doubt I ever will.

    What is really tragic is that Andrew Bynum, a player who can barely dunk, and has about a 5ft. range, is one of the better centers in the NBA today.

    The center position in the NBA has become a joke.

    Blame the current rules that benefit the guards, not the players. We've actually had very good prospects likes of Oden and Bynum who had superstar potential if it weren't for injuries. Nonetheless current Bynum is still a very solid player.

    I'm a Laker fan, but when I watch him play...he can barely jump, and he has no range. And yet, the center position is so awful, that he is probably among the top-5 in the league. I HONESTLY believe that he would have been in the BOTTOM tier of NBA centers in the early 70's. Lanier, Cowens, Unseld, Reed, Bellamy, Thurmond, Gimore, McAdoo, Hayes, Kareem, and Wilt...ALL either better, or MUCH better. And Walton was already better, in college, than Bynum has been in the pros.

    I can see the Raptors winning the lottery for second time in 5 years.

    Kyrie Irving playing alongside Andrea Bargnani, DeMar DeRozan and Ed Davis they would have a good foundation for the future.

    Fab Melo will have a great 2nd year. You will see. And the age of needing to be 7 foot and be a dominant centre is long gone.

    Drummond is an athletic freak, and if he bulks up, could be a great center. And you are seriously putting way too much emphasis on stats. Stop being so ignorant, Drummond is lottery bound.

    And Melo did not get many minutes and will start getting more in his later years.

    He's easily the best half-Australian prospect in this year's draft.
