This what? Who is the best all around Center? Not Wilt or Shaq - just look at the FT% for Shaq, and lack of foot speed. Wilt? Choke, more interested in skirts then being great.
Jabbar? Got the longevity, but piled up stats against garbage competition for the most part. Did not like to mix it up inside with the tough guys. Moses owned Jabbar lock stock and barrel. Jabbar didn't get steals, handle the ball or pass well until later in his career.
Russell? Played on the best teams year in and out, played for the best Coach and GM, his heart and will can't be questioned, but his offense isn't even college D2 quality these days. His offense also went down the drain when the real big guys showed up. His D rebounding was overstated by todays standards because of the poor shooting percentages and his teammates would abandon the glass at a shot and let Bill deal with it. A unique player of HIS time. All the others named above would be starting Centers today. Bill would be a back-up no shoot 4 of far less impact. How can he be best?
The 2nd team actually has a scary ability to win that matchup. You underrate their passing big time and forget that CP3 would have his way with Magic on offense.
That's why we have a bench. Also if this matchup goes on year after year I have to believe Magic figures out how to improve his D - after all he fixed his outside shooting. Also Magic will post up CP3 and light him up like a pinball machine on tilt.
