Here is my statistical analysis of the Nba's best Center';again using a formula of:ppg,rpg,apg,over a player's career:
1-Wilt Chamberlain-57.4-Who is the best Center of all time? It's hard to argue with Wilt.He averaged 30.1ppg,22.9rpg!,and 4.4apg.He also averaged 50.4ppg,and 27.2rpg for an entire season during 61-62,not to mention scoring 100 points in a game!!!!
4-George Mikan-39.3-The Nba's first superstar.
7-Alex Groza-35.6-Groza played only two season's in the early 50's,but they were two Spectacular seasons!
9-Mel Daniels-35.1-One of the Aba's all-time greats!
16-Artis Gilmore-33.4-Why is'nt Artis in the hall?
29-Joe Barry Carroll-27.2
42-Ira Harge-23.6-Old Aba center
49-Dan Anderson-22.7-Aba center
Please note that this is for entertainment purposes only!I am not saying that Ruland was better than Yao or whoever,this is purely a statistical breakdown of ppg,rpg,and apg for a player's career!!!!
Dude, this just won't work.
You have to realize that
a) rebounds were super-inflated before the ABA merger (Elgin Baylor, all 6'5 of him, averaged 18rpg 2 straight years.)
b) competition was much weaker and thinner back in those days, so it's not really a fair comparison to go straight by the numbers.
Seems like you put a lot of work into that though.
I think ch15 doesn't like it because Dwight Howard isn't at the top lololol. I love messing with you man.
Because we all know only stats can determine best player ever...
...don't like any list that puts Alex Groza, Neil Johnston, Jeff Ruland and Zelmo Beatty as top-25 centers of all-time.
