Default Let s be real: Hibbert is the best center in the league

Great size and know how to use it. One of the few Centers to actually have a post game. Can make his fts, cant hack him like most centers. Creates mismatches. Great defender, excellent interior defense.

9.9 PPG

47% shooting from the field

Yes, best center numbers right there. Grant it, he's been great defensively, but besides this game he's struggled.

Manufactured by the hype of his "not-so-straight-up-game".

The guy that got outplayed by Bargnani.
Howard is a liability on offence.
Hurts the team in the 4th quarter.

Hes 7'2'', built like a pro wrestler, and every time I watch him it feels like hes scoring mostly off putbacks and a gimme basket or two. Im not ready to say hes a scorer. If he is his team doesnt seem to feel letting him do it would help them.

If hes an especially good post scorer he isnt using it to put the ball in the basket.

No center impacts the game more than him.
Dwight Howard impacts the game more than he does, but in a negative way.

You can't be the best center in the game, without playing in the 4th because you can't hit free throws. Hibbert went 8-8 from the line tonight. Also shot 80% FG, works out with Duncan and seems to get better. Dwight has McHale and the Dream, and is on the same level as a few months (years?) ago.

So shaq was never the best center in the league?


Note: I am not saying Dwight is close to Shaq. Just pointing out that being a bad FT shooter does not exclude one from being the best center in the league.

In at least 27 seasons the best center in the NBA has been a terrible FT shooter....

Agreed, but there is somewhat of a difference there. Shaq actually made some free throws when he had to. Ask the Sacramento Kings.
