1- Dwight 2- Dwight 3-

1- Dwight

2- Dwight

3- Underrated- Gortat

4- Bynum (I think he's good, but noone should compare him to Dwight for the best C in the league)

5- I'll say Valenciunas since DeMarcus Cousins is in his 3rd year

6- Valenciunas

7- DeAndre Jordan ( I think he's more athletic than Dwight)

8- In terms of Low-Post skill ability, I'd actually say Gasol, even though Dwight is way more dominant

9- Dwight

10- I've got to give it to Kareem, the all time points leader, even though Wilt put up some crazy numbers back in the day

1. Best C right now? Bynum-

1. Best C right now? Bynum- Howard is too much of a drama queen and the injury and current team status is a question

2. Best C in 5 years? Bynum- as long as he's healthy

3. Most underrated? Lopez- takes a lot of heat for rebounding (wich was just 1 yr) but hes a legit 20 pt scorer and shown in the past he can rebound and block shots

4. Overrated? DeAndre Jordan- an atrocious offensive player with overrated defense

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? Cousins

6. Best Rookie C? Valanciunas

7. Most athletic? McGee

8. Most skilled? Gasol- Hibbert and Bynum are right behind

9. Best leader? Chandler- led a great Dallas D to a championship and change NYKs culture last year with his presence

10. Top Two All-Time? Hakeem and Abdul-Jabbar

How does Dwight being a drama

How does Dwight being a drama queen detract from his ability as a basketball player?

Maybe I'm making too big of a

Maybe I'm making too big of a deal out of it but just looking at what he's done to that team and the circus and distractions he created. Injury, a less than stellar post game and terrible free throw shooting for Howard made me lean towards Bynum.

1. Best C right now? Howard

1. Best C right now? Howard easily

2. Best C in 5 years? DeMarcus Cousins - big time fan since first days in UK, hope he will be the best rebounder in the NBA despite Love and Dwight greatness, and his supreme talent and somelike unseen versatility for 300 pound could grow into BEAST
3. Most underrated? has to be Big Al

4. Overrated? Howard (yeah I said it)Chandler- neither i think he was better defender than Dwight at least DPOY 7'1 guy to get double-double nor he is star overall media seems tried to make him

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? Cousins- EASY

6. Best Rookie C? Valanciunas
7. Most athletic? Howard for sure

8. Most skilled? Cousins - i explained it before his mix of basketball skills and physical "skills" is too rare for a center

9. Best leader? very few true leader i would say so just because of it im going with Dwight, at least true leader defensively, everyone has a fear of him while going to the basket

10. Top Two All-Time? Shaq & Kareem but i would think so so long to pick who is one who is two, and overall as far as alltime greats Centers has to be the best positiong easily, i mean David Robinson probably isn't top5 but he looks twice of the player Dwight is, i would easily be top2 in the NBA today.

The big man.

1. Best C right now? Dwight Howard

2. Best C in 5 years? Andrew Bynum

3. Most underrated? Andrew Bogut (when healthy)

4. Overrated? Al Horford

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? DeMarcus Cousins

6. Best Rookie C? Andre Drummond

7. Most athletic? Javale McGee

8. Most skilled? Marc Gasol

9. Best leader? Tyson Chandler (not including TD and KG as centers).

10. Top Two All-Time?

1. Kareem -- best all-around. No argument there. Stats AND titles. Plus longevity.

2. Wilt -- better stats than anyone. Game would translate to any era. Played on two awesome title teams so you can't exactly say that he wasn't a winner. Also led the league in assists one year.

I agree with you about Bogut

I agree with you about Bogut being underrated when healthy... Problem is, he's never healthy.

Hakeem

I really don't feel like ranking most of these since the choices seem to almost be between 1 or two fairly obvious guys.

Call me crazy, but I think Hakeem is the best center ever. He played in an era against all time greats at his position, he put up numbers. He could pass, shoot, score facing up or with his back to the basket, block shots, great man and weakside defense, etc. He was a complete player and spent a lot of years without the talent around him that many of the other great centers had. He played well in big games, he won championships. While Shaq has had some of the most dominant games and seasons I have ever seen (career would have been even more amazing if he focused on being in shape), I have never seen a player flat out oblitherate him like I saw Hakeem do.

my picks

1. Best C right now? Howard (with Bynum very close actually)

2. Best C in 5 years? Bynum (I think Howard's body/athleticism will start going down hill and he doesn't have the skills to rely on without elite athleticism)

3. Most underrated? Bogut (great both way player who is a throwback center who actually plays in the post and blocks shots)

4. Overrated? Jordan (does very little and has lots of athleticism and size..)

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? Monroe (watch him breakout this year as he finally has another tall guy playing beside him)

6. Best Rookie C? Valanciunas!!

7. Most athletic? McGee

8. Most skilled? M.Gasol

9. Best leader? Chandler

10. Top Two All-Time? Wilt&Kareem

Noah

How is Noah not the best leader in the NBA?

He's a hard worker, won two NCAA championships and is a good example to his teammates. Please help me understand why Garnett (his natural position is PF) and Howard have so many votes.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't see what's hard to understand. Garnett is a center right now. No debate about it. These questions are for right now, they have nothing to do with past years when he played PF. He played center for most of last year for the Celtics and will be the starting center this year. Therefore he is certainly eligible for the best leader category in this poll.

1. Best C right now? Dwight

1. Best C right now? Dwight Howard, Bynum really close 2nd.

2. Best C in 5 years? Demarcus Cousins

3. Most underrated? Greg Monroe

4. Overrated? Dwight Howard, Yes the best player can be overrated. Can't pass out of the double team, horrible leader, still has limited post moves.

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? Demarcus Cousins

6. Best Rookie C? Tyler Zeller, I think he'll have the best opportunity to produce which would make him the best, but based on talent and potential, Either Drummond or Valanciunas

7. Most athletic? Dwight Howard, Drummond close 2nd, with Jordan trailing up the rear. Pause.

8. Most skilled? Demarcus Cousins, Jefferson right behind.

9. Best leader? Tyson Chandler

10. Top Two All-Time? Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Shaquille O'Neal. Shaq became the most dominant force in basketball, in a time with great centers.

I don't count Tim Duncan as a center. Greatest Power Forward ever.

1. Best C right now? Dwight

1. Best C right now? Dwight Howard

2. Best C in 5 years? Demarcus Cousins

3. Most underrated? Roy Hibbert (I think the Pacers tend to go away from him, Roy also needs to demand the ball more)

4. Overrated? Tyson Chandler (Neg me, I don't care. Although the guy alters shots, Miami had a field day against him. And they are a rim based attacking team.)

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? Demarcus Cousins

6. Best Rookie C? Andre Drummond

7. Most athletic? Dwight Howard

8. Most skilled? Tim Duncan (Cousins isn't far behind once he learns to finish around the rim a lil better.)

9. Best leader? Kevin Garnett

10. Top Two All-Time? Shaquille O'neal and Wilt Chamberlain.

1. Best C right now? Bynum.

1. Best C right now? Bynum. Howard can't really play with a hurt back, and Bynum has the better offensive game. He just needs to stop acting like a kid sometimes.

2. Best C in 5 years? Demarcus Cousins. People don't like his childish attitude, but the guy really cares and plays hard. Add that to his insane basketball skills, and I don't see how this guy won't be great

3. Most underrated? Demarcus Cousins put up 18-11 last year, and all you ever heard about him was how crazy he was!

4. Overrated? Noah/Lopez. People make out like these guys are game changers in the mold of Dwight Howard, when both players are lacking greatly in many things. Both got paid to.

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? Nikola Pekovic. Maybe I'm forgetting something, but he did put up 14/7 last year in his second year. Maybe not the most potential, but clearly he was the most effective young center last year.

6. Best Rookie C? Zeller. He's just more NBA ready then the other guys. Smart player, so he probably won't have as much foul trouble as most young centers

7. Most athletic? McGee/Jordan, honestly what's the difference between the two?

8. Most skilled? Marc Gasol/Tim Duncan. Duncan would be my man, but he's getting old. Gasol can play in the post, as well as move outside the block. One of the few centers who can actually play with their back to the basket

9. Best leader? Kevin Garnett, you can always see him talking and supporting his team from the sidelines.

10. Top two all time? Shaq/Wilt/Kareem. Just pick two of the Lakers big men and you can't go wrong. All of those guys were unstoppable on offense, rebounded, played good D, and played for many years.

Pekovic was not more

Pekovic was not more effective than Udoh or Tiago or Cousins

I'll give you Demarcus but

I'll give you Demarcus but not the other two. Pek was a beast last year and had a stretch of games that neither Udoh or Tiago will replicate in their entire careers. The only reason I didn't put Cousins in this spot was because I wanted to bring some light onto Pekovic, and the great season that he had last year in only his second year. Besides the first month of the season were he didn't play he put up 16.3 ppg 9.7 rpg on 56% shooting from the field, and a month later in February he scored 17.4 ppg while grabbing 8.5 rpg.

God you have to be a troll

God you have to be a troll ENOG. Udoh and Tiago were no where near Pek last year.

You could argue that Tiago

You could argue that Tiago was close, his averages aren't as nice as Pek's were because he only played 19 minutes per game, but in those 19 he averaged 9 and 5, and per 36 minutes that's 18 and 10.

I won't compare his per 36 stats to Pek's because Pek's are scewed, he didn't get much run until February, but when he did he played really well. I think he'll keep it up because he's just so strong, but remember he was supposed to have foot surgery this off-season because he had bone spurs in his right foot, which he played through the last month of the season(same thing Ray Allen had to play through, but Allen also had the surgery in 2007)

So Pek is better, but Tiago isn't as far off as it seems, Pek's PER was 21.4 while Tiago's was 20.5, not far off. Hopefully he'll get some more run but with a loaded Spurs frontline that takes pride in sharing the load, but the problem is that ever since Boris Diaw joined the team, his minutes have been limited even more. In the playoffs he averaged only 13 minutes per, and this is with DeJaun Blair getting DNPs and only averaging 7 minutes per game, and Matt Bonner's minutes dropping from 20 to 12.

Pekovic is no doubt better

Pekovic is no doubt better than Udoh you and probably Splitter, but not better than Cousins.

And I love Pek as well, I believe he's a really strong inside low post force who could put up 15 and 8, but remember, he's not your typical 2 year player, he's 26 and will be 27 in Janruary, he's not old but he's not a really young guy that has a really high ceiling.

1. Best C right now?

1. Best C right now? howard... bynum is not that far off, and he will probably claim that spot. byname would DESTROY in orlando (d12's) system, and put up sick numbers as the man. in a system where big baby davis averaged 19 and 9 as their stater in the playoffs against pacers

2. Best C in 5 years? bynum

3. Most underrated? cousins or monroe... mcgee would have been the clear choice when he was in the wiz. and if i said it back then i would've been laughed at. now everyone knows what he's capable of

4. Overrated? chandler is in the combo.

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? cousins

6. Best Rookie C? anthony davis

7. Most athletic? howard

8. Most skilled? bargniani is in the combo

9. Best leader? chandler
