I would take Bogut out, he hasn't done much of anything this year.

Lopez and Jefferson have no business being in the top 5 the way they have played this year. Especially Lopez who has yet to have a double-double this season and is averaging less than 7 boards or Jefferson who doesn't play a lick of defense and is unbelievably inefficient. Noah, Horford, and Hibbert all are far more deserving along with Bynum when healthy. And Duncan isn't a center.

Tyson Chandler has played like an animal this year. Just sayin'.

He won't ever get the points other centers do because he plays with Dirk, Butler, Terry, Kidd, Marion, etc., but he's an animal.

It's not because of who he plays with, it's because he's so bad on offense that he's a liability. Literally the only reason he ever scored 10 points a game was because he played with the best point guard in the league who could give him easy dunks and putbacks. Chandler has always been an asset on defense, the but his downsides still remain (health and offense).

This season:
Dwight
Pau
Duncan
Noah
Hibbert

Everyone when fully healthy: (Pau and Duncan usually PFs)
Dwight
Yao
Bogut
Oden
Bynum

Injuries seem to plague the center position, another reason why Dwight is so valuable...

Greg Oden?! Really?! :confused::confused::confused:I fail to see how you can include him this list, please justify.

^ He's the best defensive center in the league when healthy. He's just never healthy.

My oh my how the center position has weakened.

He put up 11ppg-8.5rpg-1apg-0.5spg-2.5bpg in only 23.5mpg, that's pretty sweet, I'd like to think that if he was never injured, he'd be a Top 5 center in the league by now.

His stats from last season per36mins:
17ppg-13rpg-1.5apg-0.5apg-3.5bpg

Just try to imagine this guy in his prime had he not gotten injured. :drool:

What?

Howard
Duncan
Bogut
Lopez
Jefferson


Dwight
Duncan
Lopez
Big Al
Horford/Bogut

Leaving Noah out of the top 5 is laughable at this point. Putting players like Lopez and Jefferson ahead of him is just hate

Man are you joking? Lopez?


MPG FG% 3p% FT% OFF DEF RPG APG SPG BPG TO PF PPG
35.6 0.436 0.000 0.824 2.4 3.8 6.2 1.2 0.5 1.6 2.0 3.5 18.7

A center with 6.2 RPG and 0.436 FG% in almost 36 MPG? I mean Rondo would have got more rebounds than him, if he played center.

Might as well say Tmac is top 3 SG's when healthy while we are at it.
