Just my opinion but I'd have to go with Pau on this one. Andrew Bogut is also another very good passer for a Big but I'd just have to give the slight nod to Pau.

Who do you guys think is the best passing big man in the league?

I hear your point on Lee and I must admit he is a very good passer but having many assists does not mean that he is the best passer. The system he plays in the plays they run for him the amount of touches he receives are all part of why he has the best numbers. But hey that your opinion and i respect that.

David Lee. Easy one, 4 assists per game (leads all Centers).

Based on stats, and from what I have been watching. (Knicks fan here)

But, as talent per se? I'd say Shaq, Tim Duncan, and then Lee.

Kevin Love? Lol, he's a joke, he has nothing in his "repertoire" other than that Outlet Pass (which I admit is nice), but other than that, NO thanks.

If Vlade Divac was still in the league, then it's a NO BRAINER.

Lamar Odom and Gasol. Lamar Odom is the best passing big man in the NBA.

Lamar Odom being a BIG is somewhat debatable. I consider big in this context as being a BIG. Pau, David, TD, KG are bigs Lamar might be around the same height and is probably just as good rebounder that all those guys but I don't consider him as being a big.

Thats my opinion but a good argument for LO can change it.

Bigger than KG???

My point is that I don't really class Odom as a BIG. Odom and Hedo is the same height. Damn Donte Greene a SG/SF is 6'11 but I wouldn't class him as a BIG. In the NBA being a BIG doesn't mean just your height it also has to do with the type of game you play. May sound stupid but its the truth. If height was the sole determining factor there is no doubt that Lamar wins this but IMO it isnt.

He's not bigger than KG. KG is 6'11" and Odom is 6'9" maybe 6'10". Boozer and West are both much stronger and play much bigger than Odom too. Odom plays like a SF and West and Boozer are beasts.

Well, Odom is a PF and has been a PF for the last 4 or 5 years. He averages more assists than KG and at this point is a better player than KG. KG is almost done, and should be done by the end of the season.

Well you can't really say that it's because of the system because the Knicks stopped playing the run and gun system a while ago. Now that we have T-Mac, house and Sergio were using the SSOL system again but prior to the trade deadline we haven't been playing that way

Hmm ... this reasoning intrigues me. So if a guy who is 7 feet, who has just amazing ball handling skills, and actually plays the Point Guard position, he would not be considered a big? On that note, do you consider lebron James a BIG? Is Magic Johnson a BIG?

And what about short players who can play the center position? Wes Unsled, who is considered the shortest Center to have ever played at 6' 8" has over 13 and a half rebounds a game. What about Charles Barkley, even before he got fat and rapped about Rocks or Tacos or whatever, was 6' 6" (6' 4" if you believe his autobiography) and could rebound better than the 7 footers he played with and against, and even was as strong as the 7 footers.

To Answer the question, Pau Gasol and Dirk Nowinski (yao if healthy). Bynum USE to be a great passer, but now he's just a good one.

He's now at 3.5 and it has been his play of recent that has him there. His passing has CERTAINLY IMPROVED. But it is because of his role in the team why he has such good numbers. Numbers aren't everything. He is good but being a NY fan you are being a little biased and just looking at your guy. NY's system may no longer be run and gun but its still up tempo and it is slightly helping his assists per game stats.

Thats just how I feel. You are free to disagree.

1)Vlade Divac
2)Chris Webber

Are you agreeing then or disagreeing with me because you neglected to mention Odom?

Its one of those quirky double standards in basketball. Its not all about your size it is HOW you play for your size. That is why so many bball expert get on Dirk's back because a 7 footer is "suppose" to have a very good inside game and Dirk relied too much on his jumper. I never saw the reasoning behind that either until recently. Odom is not considered as a BIG because of his style of play. Less power more finesse.

And no I don't consider LeBron and Magic to be BIGs. Tall, Strong and Atheltic yes but not BIGS.

Kevin Love, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Brad Miller, and Pau Gasol come to mind. Depends on what we are talking about. Out of a double team, KG, Duncan, and Gasol are the best. From the high post, its Miller or Love. Love's outlet passing or inbounds after a make are unmatchable. So it just depends what kind of passing you are looking at.

Lol at Love.Just because he can throw it far. He averages less than 2.5 assists a game.

he doesn't have anyone who can hit a shot dude. And initiating a break like he does is a talent not seen in years. Duncan, Gasol, these guys don't average a lot of assists, but they make teams pay for double teams by finding the open guy, and in a scramble, a shooter is left open. They still created that play regardless of whether they got the assist
Watch Love play. Most of you have only seen him play when he plays your team. Watch him throw the ball inbounds after a make. If he were with the Lakers, Celtics, or any big team, he would be averaging a ton of assists. And you would worship the way he started your teams fast break.

its unfair for him to be in the discussion...3 years ago, yes....today, no.

I agree. It is a quirk of basketball. I was actually just picking your brain. It just seems that to be a "Big" when it comes to basketball is to have size AND play a more traditional Big man game (pounding on the inside, rebounding, blocking shots, having power). Notice that the traditional big man doesn't have to be a passer.

I was just wondering why you didn't think Odom was not a big, despite playing in the power forward position, and I'mquite satisfied with your response. Lamar just doesn't play the big man game the way KG and Karl Malone did.

Its strange but its probably because I've been a fan of his for some time now and it really hasn't sunk in that he IS a power forward. He still doesn't play like a prototypical "power forward". I understand that that is the position he plays but because he doesn't play like one. I think people that call him a BIG are just being biased or really don't understand certain aspects of basketball (yet).

You do know the "Big" is a wide skill set these days. From Dirk, to Odom, to Shaq, all these guys are bigs. You are talking about the 80's and 90's bigs. LO is a "Big" in todays NBA.

I agree with the first part. You STILL don't quite grasp the point. Today's, Yesterday's, Tomorrow's when it comes to any form of basketball you are as BIG as the way you play and how effectively and efficiently you play. That will never change.

I was once like you and 3 years ago I would 100% agree with you but I learned more about basketball and realised that my idea of size and positions was indeed incorrect.

I don't know what the debate on Lamar Odom being a SF or a PF is but hes clearly a PF and a BIG so there really isn't a reason to debate it. He has a dynamic repertoire like Dirk and others thats not typical of the PF position but he is still a big.

If you say any other player you're either a homer or love hyped players. As far as 'big men' go, I'll just assume he means PF/C, and Josh Smith leads them in assists. He even recorded double digit assists (he had a triple double that game).

For the record, I don't like Atlanta but Smith is the best (at least this year anyways).

I don't, I have always liked him and knowing what he is capable of

wish he could be a laker

I'm suprised Garnett isn't mentioned often...passing doesn't regress with age.

I agree, he's still the best

Denver Boy mentioned Nene.....and I think he would be on this list if he ever passed anymore, that guy is so capable with either hand and he used to lead cutters like no one else but he's a black hole now, ball goes in and its going up in some form of a layup, cause God forbid you dunk that crap.

I hereby invoke Godwin's law on those calling out Homerz. If a Laker/Spurs/Celtics fan picks someone from their team, rather than calling them a homer, why don't you pick someone of equal size and strength, and compare them accordingly.


For example:

Laker Fan: Pau Gasol is the best Bigman passer.
Denver Fan: No, Nene is a better passer, you're just a homer!
Laker Fan: No, you're a homer


In that example, no, you're both a-holes.


Better Example-

Lakers Fan: Pau Gasol is the best big man passer
Knicks Fan: I disagree, David Lee has far more assists per game.
Laker Fan: Assists does not necessary equate to a better passer. Pau can read the defense and see the open man better than David Lee.
Knicks Fan: If reading the defense makes Pau Gasol a better passer, then Marc Gasol is better than his brother.

Notice how both Laker fan and Knicks fan actually contributed to the debate.

Nene is showing some real passing ability and offensive awareness today.

no one's mentioned Shaq, but he's pretty good pass down low.

why Lee? the guy is not a great passer WTF?

he passes out of the double team with a team full of chuckers ROFL i.e. Galinari or Harrington.

Lol Harrington is considered a chucker but gallo barley even shoots.

all Galinarri does is shoot 3's i'd say 85% of the time. so that's a partially a chucker to me lol

Has anyone here seen Andrew Bogut play? He may not be the best but he is definitely in the discussion. Overall he is very underrated.

My point exactly. He is so underrated as a passer. His offensive awareness and soft hands are top notch. Posters look at his 2 assists per game and look right over him. Watch the guy play and they would certainly have a change of heart.
