Default Is Joakim Noah the best center in the East?

So overall, Noah is first in assists, third in overall rebounds, offensive rebounds and steals, fourth in blocks, fifth in free-throw percentage and sixth in field-goal percentage, scoring and defensive rebounds.

His main competitors for best center in the East would be Varejao, Monroe, Bosh and Horford. All of them are ranked in top 10 in nearly every category. Noah and Bosh are the only two centers ranked in the top 10 in all the categories.

Varejao is first in overall rebounds, offensive rebounds and defensive rebounds, second in steals, third in free-throw percentage and assists, fifth in field-goal percentage, sixth in scoring and 19th in blocks

Monroe is first in steals, second in defensive rebounding and assists, third in overall rebounding, fourth in scoring, seventh in free-throw percentage and field-goal percentage, ninth in offensive rebounding and 14th in blocks.

Bosh is first in free-throw percentage and scoring, second in field-goal percentage, sixth in steals, seventh in blocks, offensive rebounding and defensive rebounding and ninth in overall rebounding and assists.

I'd rather have Bosh than any of those other players.

No, Noah is not the best center in the East. We let Omar Asik go for nothing and he is better than Noah. This was a colossal blunder by the Bulls management.

He is turning out to be a beast, but some of us who follow the bulls knew he would. With Asik we could have traded Noah and have been set for years at the center position.

We paid more for Gibson than we would have paid to keep Asik. Another poor management decision. Picking up Hinrich was another poor decision. I would really like to see Paxon leave.
