Default Re: Top 5 centers in the league?

I don't see how Bynum can be considered the 2nd best center in the league considering all of his injury woes. Could he be, yeah but until he is able to stay healthy, he shouldn't be on there or Kaman should be thrown onto this list. Brook Lopez also deserves a mention, also would take Andrew Bogut over Horford, Perkins, and Bynum easily. I mean, Bogut is averaging 12.5/11.5 with nearly as many blocks per game as fouls (2.8 vs 3.4) and more assists than turnovers.

I'd go:
Dwight
Noah
Bogut
Lopez
Horford/Nene


Next year, I won't be surprised to see DJ break the list.

6 rebounds a game for a center. nice. he's even more soft than bosh.

Not in order.

Howard
Bogut
Horford
Noah
Bynum


Pau is arguable a center, then would enter into the list too.

If you're counting guys like Jefferson and Horford then why not Pau Gasol and Amare? Amare is a natural power forward, IMO, but has played most of his career including this season playing center in small lineups. Pau has also played more center than PF since coming to LA because of Bynum's health as well as the amount of minutes Odom gets. So I'll count those 2 if Horford and Jefferson qualify.

1.Dwight
2.Amare
3.Pau
4.Duncan
5.Horford

If Bogut was playing like he did last season then he'd make the list, I'd probably put him 4th.

Dwight > Bynum > Everyone Else

NO not a laker hater, Bynum comes out every year and has a run of ten great games then goes back to being foul prone and mediocre your going off potential not production
