It's good to see that it was really close between Duncan and Malone and everyone else was way behind. If Malone could have just won a ring it wouldn't be a contest in my opinion.

Wasn't Amare a center until just recently? And I thought Ben Wallace was a center, not a pf. Am I wrong here?

I know Amare's really a pf, but he was playing center for quite a while, wasn't he?

dang, I hate how Nowitzki's in that list.
Webber>Dirk

and Amare would some day several years later would go down as top 10 as well, I would think.

Yeah, I'm surprised with how much I agree with this list.

Although I do think that Webber could be in that 10th spot instead of Nowitzki, but it's really not a big deal since there was only a 2 vote difference...

It's nice to see a center at the top of the PF list. One day people will get this right.

I dont see a center...

Anyway, I think Webber should be ahead of Dirk and Amare.

Malone and Duncan should switch places. Other than that I think the list is pretty decent.

how come nobody voted magic? he played PF later in his career.

how come there is no rankings for Greatest SF's of All-Time?
Lakers' Elgin Baylor and James Worthy would be on it.

You're a Spurs fan right? So I assume you watch a good amount of their games, if that's the case, not sure how you can determine that he has played PF more than C since Robinson retired. Robinson is the reason TD is considered a PF. He's a center that played mostly PF early in his career because he joined a team that had an all time great center.

So what position did you see him play yesterday?;) Who was guarding him most of the time? Who was he guarding most of the time?

Great game by one of the top 10 centers ever.:clap:

Malone? If he got called for all that dirty elbow stuff, he would have scored 12k less points, no sir. I got him at #4 grudgingly.

I watched McHale in person at least 75 times, and he deserves to be higher, but KG deserves to be even higher.

Wanna talk guys that played Center and were really PF's??? Dave Cowens. A PF if there ever was one. Way better then Dave D - good god, what were these guys reading, Knicks comic books about the 1 WS Knick dynasty?

Hayes is a total reject, soft, weak, and shot more then he rebounded. Useless. Why not Chet Walker??? Another softy.

Duncan (one of the 5 best players of all time)

KG (one of the 10 best players of all time folks)

McHale (his totals were greatly ******** by having Maxwell around early and not having Mr. Nose around later)

Malone

Bark (he was something, thats for sure, even an old Celts fan could see it)

Cowens (he was a beast before they even used that term, good enough to stand off Jabbar in Cowens's prime, but not year in and year out)

Nowitski (2 more good years, and he's ahead of Bark IMO)

Haywood (he could play today, which Petit could not)

Petit
