Great centers just aren't around anymore. Skill sets are different, rules are different. The game has changed.

It hasn't changed that much.

The person who can get closest to the basket still has the best chance to score.

Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum, & Yao Ming being so injury prone really hurt the post Shaq era of centers so far. All three of those guys should be having epic playoff battles with each other & Dwight Howard but Oden is always hurt & Ming is done.

Bynum is close though, he was the best Laker in their series against Dallas. It was more of a deal where the offense ran through Kobe than Bynum not being dominant. If he got the touches that traditional centers got he would be a 20/10 guy....if he could stay healthy.

Don't act like everyone on ish wasn't calling the guy a bum when he was putting up like 6 points and 7 rebounds a game a few years back.

McGee will be a 10, 10 and 2.5bpg guy...and in this day and age....that equates a dominant center.
Blocks do not equal defensive impact at all over the course of a game. Calling McGee a good defensive player is like calling Darko Milicic a good player.

Javale has potential to do that every game though maybe not to that extent but to shut down the paint just as well. Milicic just had a good game but the dude has like no potential.

Sure, I'll concede the argument that based on his physical potential he could do this night in and night out. I just don't think he has the brain to do that night in and night out nor become an elite defender. We will see.
