I should have said..

Basketball IQ and fundamental skill wise he's horrible although he has improved the last couple years with Karl. His all-time great length and athleticism is what actually makes him a good basketball player and great specialist. Teams definitely have to gameplan for him, McGee and Andre Miller especially make defenses pay with all those lobs.

agree with what you said, but

agree with what you said, but must add another important attribute- is willingness to get better and be coachable. that can go great lengths in a couple years as many others that don't put as much work as he does in his game, they will just plateau and coast where as mcgee improves something about his game every year. (even if it's avoiding tripping over his own feet)

Best center now: Marc Gasol.

Best center now: Marc Gasol. Honorable mention: Roy Hibbert, Dwight Howard, Noah
Best in 5 years: Andre Drummond.
Most underrated: Roy Hibbert. Top 3 or 4 center. Great defender with a good post game. Doesn't get enough recognition.
Most overrated: DeMarcus Cousins. Hasn't reached his potential and might not ever. Bad attitude, uneven motor, and poor shot
selection could do him in.
Best young center (under 2 years): Andre Drummond
Best rookie center: Nerlens Noel (eventually). Runner up: Cody Zeller (also a power forward).
Most athletic: Javale McGee
Most skilled: Marc Gasol: scoring, post game, mid range jumper, passing, defense, and leadership.
Solid MVP candidate.
Best ever: 1. Bill Russell: Best rebounder ever. Best shot blocker ever. Best winner in the history of sports. A one man
defensive scheme. Good athlete, solid assist guy, and could still score.
2. Wilt Chamberlain: 7 straight scoring titles, 100 in a game, 50 in a season. Was also the captain of two of the best teams ever.

^^^ Best leader. Joakim

^^^

Best leader. Joakim Noah: Loud and outspoken where D Rose is quiet. The heart and soul of the Bulls' team and main
defensive cog. Runner up: Marc Gasol, Chris Bosh (understated third star. Great team player and a true pro.)

1. Best Right Now: Dwight

1. Best Right Now: Dwight Howard - Giving him the benefit of the doubt, but Mark Gasol could get it if Howard doesn't play better than last year.

2. Best in Five Years: Andre Drummond - Back injuries are a b*tch, so I am not comfortable putting Dwight Howard here

3. Most Underrated: Chris Bosh - Not perfect, but gets too much hate due to high expectations.

4. Most Overrated: DeMarcus Cousins - Raw stats aren't helping the atrocious Kings much

5. Best Young C: Andre Drummond - It seems like most people on here consider Anthony Davis a PF

6. Best Rookie: Nerlens Noel

7. Most Athletic: Andre Drummond

8. Most Skilled: Mark Gasol

Hakeem

You have to give credit to Hakeem Olajuwon for facing four HOF centers in his 3 Finals appearances. Robert Parrish and Bill Walton in 1986, after going through HOFer Kareem in the WCF. Then titles against HOFers Patrick Ewing (1994) and Shaq (1995) after having gone through HOFer David Robinson out West. Parrish and Ewing and David Robinson were in their primes. Shaq was in his athletic prime. '86 Walton was the 6th man of the year, and Kareem won the Finals MVP in '85. The Dream also battled a prime Ralph Sampson (HOF) in practice and was also a member of the 1996 gold medal team that also featured Shaq and The Admiral. Olajuwon took on many great centers. With most being in their prime.

1. Best C right now? Dwight

1. Best C right now?
Dwight Howard
2. Best C in 5 years?
Andre Drummond (I think it'll be a pretty good debate between Cousins, Drummond, and Howard)
3. Most Underrated?
Nikola Vucevic
4. Most Overrated?
Demarcus Cousins - Several others I could've put here but until Cousins can prove he is actually willing to be a team player and can produce wins then he is just pointless stats.
5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)?
Andre Drummond
6. Best Rookie C?
Kelly Olynyk - Thought I'd go a bit different here, currently Noel and Len are injured and Noel has big injury concerns, even at full form I think Olynyk will be able to produce the best.
7. Most Athletic?
Dwight Howard
8. Most Skilled?
Marc Gasol - Can do it all; Rebound, Pass (Over 4 APG), Score, and Defend and do them all very well.
9. Best Leader?
Joakim Noah (full of emotion and passion, constantly getting his team fired up)
10. Top Two All-Time?
Wilt Chamberlain, Hakeem - I don't take rings into account as much as most do, and really you can't go wrong with any of the many great centers. You could just pick two of the guys that have been mentioned so far at random, and you'd be arguably right.

I'll include some honorable mentions

1. Best C right now? DWIGHT HOWARD (Marc Gasol and Joakim Noah close behind)

2. Best C in 5 years? GREG ODEN (I know .. ) if have to be realistic - Roy Hibbert, JVal, DMC

3. Most Underrated? This is a long list but I'll go with OMER ASIK , remember how the Bulls dumped him and now Houston are going the same way. Of course Noah and Howard are curently better players maybe he was just unlucky to be in the same team with guys like them, but he showed that he's more than capable of being a verry good starting center. H.m. - Greg Monroe, Nik Vucevic, Nene, JaVale McGee, Marcin Gortat.

4. Most Overrated? BROOK LOPEZ ( idk why so many include DeAndre - isn't he a notoriusly bad player ?) h.m. - Tyson Chandler, Al jefferson, T.Splitter,

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? JONAS VALANCIUNAS (h.m. Drummond, Motiejunas)

6. Best Rookie C? ALEX LEN, I consider Olynyk PF (h.m. - healthy Noel )

7. Most Athletic? JAVALE MCGEE

8. Most Skilled? MARC GASOL (H.m. - Joakim Noah - 4.0 asists in 36.8 mins per game last season, Greg Monroe - 3.5 asists in 33 mins per game last season.)

9. Best Leader? JOAKIM NOAH (H.m. Tyson Chandler)

10. Top Two All-Time? 1. HAKEEM OLAJUWON 2. DAVID ROBINSON 3. Kareem 4. Wilt 5. Bill Russell 6. Shaq

My thoughts...

1. Best C right now?
Dwight Howard. I really don't like him at all (don't think much of his off-court BS and I'm a diehard Lakers fan so I have my reasons). Although I think that Marc Gasol is right up there with him, when Dwight is healthy, he is probably the best center in the NBA.

2. Best C in 5 years?
Should still be Dwight Howard. However, Jonas Valanciunas or Andre Drummond or Nikola Vucevic (depending on how they all develop between now and then) might have something to say about that.

3. Most Underrated?
I won't lie. I didn't think much of Roy Hibbert before Indiana's playoff run. I even chuckled a bit when he was named to the All-Star team (I'm sure others did too). His play during the playoffs really opened my eyes to a lot of things. He's a much better player than he's credit for, especially defensively.

4. Most Overrated?
Deandre Jordan is nothing more than overpaid garbage. The man has virtually no basketball skills whatsoever. Like Blake Griffin, he is little more than an athlete who happens to play basketball. He is not a basketball player.

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)?
Jonas Valanciunas and Andre Drummond both have much higher ceilings, and greater long-term potential, but until they can consistently produce on an NBA court, potential is all it is. Although he is somewhat limited defensively, Vucevic has already proven to be a capable and highly productive NBA center. He gets my vote.

6. Best Rookie C?
From the PF voting I got the impression that most of you firmly project Cody Zeller as an NBA PF and not a C (now that I think about it, that makes a lot of sense). With that said, Alex Len wins by default.

7. Most Athletic?
It's a toss up between a healthy Dwight Howard and Deandre Jordan. If I have to pick, I'd go with Jordan. Like I said, Deandre Jordan is a breathtaking athlete. He's just not a basketball player.

8. Most Skilled?
Marc Gasol is quite limited athletically, but skill-wise, he's unmatched. He can score inside, he can put the ball on the floor, he has legitimate range out to about 18 feet, he's an adequate rebounder for his position and he's an excellent passer. He's also the most fundamentally sound defensive big man in the NBA.

9. Best Leader?
Joakim Noah is the heart and soul of the Chicago Bulls. He's their vocal leader and more importantly, their emotional leader. He was one of the main reasons they were able to remain respectable despite Derrick Rose's prolonged absence.

10. Top Two All-Time?
Hakeem Olajuwon is the greatest center of all-time in my opinion. His footwork was otherworldly, he was just as lethal facing the basket as he was with his back to it, he could score with either hand, he could put the ball on the floor, he could shoot from the perimeter and he could also shoot it off the dribble, he consistently hit free throws (huge plus) and he was an elite rebounder as well as being arguably the greatest defender the center position has ever seen. As for second, I would have to go with Kareem.

1. Best C right now? Tim

1. Best C right now? Tim Duncan, Dwight Howard

2. Best C in 5 years? Dwight Howard. Maybe I drink too much, but after following his offseason I strong believe that Drummond could be a top 3 center in five years.

3. Most Underrated? Marc Gasol, Joakim Noah

4. Most Overrated? Tyson Chandler, Deandre Jordan

5. Best Young C (2 yrs or less exp. in league)? Jonas Valanciunas, Nikola Vucevic

6. Best Rookie C? Kelly Olynyk (right now).

7. Most Athletic? Dwight Howard

9. Best Leader? Kevin Garnett, Joakim Noah

10. Top Two All-Time? Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul Jabbar. I hate myself to exclude Bill Rusell or Olajuwon, but you said top two.... Hell even George Mikan deserve some recognition...

Computers are frustrating:

Computers are frustrating: Had the whole thing almost done and blink and it was all gone.
Best young center: Kanter, Kanter vs Val, Kanter per 36 17.+, , Val 13.5, outside shooting: of all centers last yr only Bosh (Bosh not really a center but he played center a lot )had a higher shooting percentage from 16 ft ond out, most other stats very close, I really like both Val and Drummond and I think both will be very good.
