We all know that Wilt is the only center to ever lead the league in assists, and while most would agree that he is the best passing big man, his career average isnt as impressive as some might think, and we'll never know what his assist-to-turnover ratio was since they didnt record turnovers whilst he played.

So I ask you this. Who is the best passing big man in the post Wilt era? And we can go with centesr or power forwards here.

Didn't we just have this thread? Arvydas Sabonis. People are gonna say Chris Webber and Vlade Divac.

With career numbers of 4.1 APG and a peak season of 6 APG, you have to go with Kevin Garnett. No player mentioned yet has better assist numbers.

Career assists:

KG - 4890 - highest season was 6.0 APG - career = 4.1 APG
Duncan - 3296 - highest season was 3.9 APG, career = 3.1 APG
Shaq - 3026 - highest season was 3.8 APG, career = 2.5 APG

This is yet another reason why LeBron James, while I oppose his success, is the most talented player in the league. He plays every position effectively. He's the best passer in the league at small forward, power forward and center. He might even be the best passer at shooting guard; it's a competition between him and Dwayne Wade.

Sabonis was good but I think Bill Walton was a little better than him. The year Walton and Bird played together 86' Celtics was a passing show between those two.

Kevin Love has some of the duttiest outlet passes in the league. I'd take him. Great outlet passers are very useful in getting the break started.

Not the best but Dirk is a very underrated passer.

Kevin Love is the best rebounder in the NBA. He's even the best rebounder at the PG position!

Throwing out positions and going by big men size (6'8 and up), Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and LeBron James.

The PF and C have all basically been covered.

But in the game today amongst PF and C? KG.

No love for Al Hofrod yet? And what about Anthony Mason?

Brad Miller is great. Barkley and Karl Malone could both move the rock too.

A lot of good answers, I like Bill Walton, KG, and Shaq.

Also, Dennis Rodman was an underrated passer, not a lot of assists because he rarely had the ball in his hands but the could throw a full court outlet as well as anyone I've seen.

Garnett should at least be in the discussion, he has averaged 5+ assists for 6 seasons and had at one point led his team in assists.
