    I see the Raptors offense as two power forwards and no true center, so I wouldn't put Bargnani as a C. If he was though, he'd be ahead of both of the rookies (Bogut would be too, but neither for long depending on their development).

    I'm a fan of Gasol though, for sure.

    Duncan is the center on his team...but not technically, he's right beyond Yao and Dwight now if he were considered a C. Amare is a true PF. Jefferson is a true PF. Pau is a true PF. Sheed is a true PF.

    After those three, guys like Perk, Camby, Nene, Kaman, Okur, Biedrins, Marc Gasol round out my top 10.
    You are going to put Marc Gasol and Kendrick Perkins over Emeka Okafor...wow...The guy has never not averaged a double double (Gasol never has) and is a great shot blocker and post defender. People like to say that Okafor is really a PF playing out of position but he's a Center in my mind. He's not quick enough to keep up with a lot of PF's, and doesn't have the mid range game or post game that today's PF needs.

    I mean, I wouldn't have either, but I'd be hard-pressed to argue Gasol over Lopez, especially considering their respective ages (and therefore their ceilings for next year and beyond) and their general comparative abilities...

    In order

    1. Dwight Howard
    2. Tim Duncan (don't give me that **** about him being a PF, he's been a C for a while)
    3. Yao Ming
    4. Al Jefferson
    5. Shaq
    6. Marcus Camby
    7. Nene
    8. Mehmet Okur
    9. Andris Biendrins
    10. Andrew Bynum

    11.* Jermaine O'neal
    12. * Chris Kaman


    I really hope I don't see Ilgauskas' bum azz on any1's lists...he DONE.

    Bogut could be on the list next year if he could stay healthy. And I give a Kendrick Perkins an honorable mention, he put in work in the playoffs beasting mtfr's on that depleted C's front line.
    really u think bynum and okur are better than j. oneal ,kaman, perkins, horford, okafor, brook lopez, tyson chandler (when healthy) ...

    ... bynum isnt top 10.. though i'd figure the laker homers would put him and gasol at number 1

    I can't even think of 10 centers, honestly. Its that bad
    I can't include Gasol b/c he starts alongside a true center. Even tho he mans the pivot when Odom's in the game.

    All they've done is play him along side PF's since Rasho left the Spurs. Duncan plays like a Center just as much as any of the all time greats.

    With that being said, I'll half agree b/c he's gonna go into the Hall as PF in all likelyhood.

    But you stick Duncan in any Era, and he's a Center in my opinion...but I guess it depends who he plays with.

    Fck it, I'm blazed.

    Center!!!

    Bynum b4 the knee injury was looking like one of the top 5 centers in the league, how soon we forget. Its not like he's gonna suck like he did in the playoffs in the future. He Just had knee surgery.

    Horford's not better than Okur yet

    Okafors ONLY a stud on D (although so is only a stud on O...but Okur is a better player at the moment)

    Chandler can't stay healthy for ****, and Okur is also a better player.

    You're best argument at this point in time is Brooke Lopez...And I'll apologize to raptor fans (who I hate) for not showing Bargs any love, he came through for my fantasy team sumthin sick, Champion ofcourse )
