Top 10 centers of all time: Drop your list
 

 
My top 5 isnt etched in stone. Truthfully i struggle alot with putting the top 5 in order but most people agree on the names

1. Wilt
2. Hakeem
3. Kareem
4. Bill
5. Shaq
6. Moses Malone
7. David Robinson
8. Pat Ewing
9. Willis Reed
10. Dwight/Wes Unseld/Robert Parish

I cant decide on that 10 spot either. But if Embiid can ever stay healthy he could make this list someday and move up a few spots in my opinion

Damn i forgot Mutombo. He would be another guy battling it out for that number 10 spot qnd Zo Mourning as well

Is durability the reason why you have Jokic over Embiid? I think both of them could make my top 10 list someday

I can see that. Offensively Jokic is elite but i think Embiid is much better on defense

Youre right fam. Considering how well the Nuggets played even with Murray and i think a few other players injured...Jokic really had to carry that team and deserved that mvp award

Bill Russell was a glorified Dennis Rodman

Duncan wasn’t a center
He was scared to play center, that’s why he didn’t go to Orlando to play with T-Mac

David was like a taller Dwight with offense...and less wide shoulders. Not to say DRob wasnt built pause

If you switch D Rob with Ostertag your list would be on point. Honorable mention to Michael Doleac

The best ones at 10:35 (or one of the best ones)

Shaq and there’s no other choice. Before he got sick and flabby he was one of the most dominant players in the league for his size.

n*ggas focus on the Cavs, Suns and Celtics era Shaq and forget this n*gga got the Magic to the Chip during the Jordan Era.

So im not the only one that sees the similarities with the 2 of them. Its reasonable to question how many points Bill could score in other eras but his defense would be at an all time level in any era...same could be said for Rodman, Wilt and Hakeem

We know Bill would be an elite athlete in any era. I could see him scoring as much as 20 a game just by running the floor and finishing, and getting offensive putbacks

What holds him back is could he carry a team on offense like the other greats? Theres no question about it with Hakeem, Wilt, and Kareem which in my opinion carries more weight then Bills championships he won while having the most hall of fame teammates any player has ever had

not sure about top 10 but the dream is the goat center to me.


he was too dominant and the anchor on both sides of the ball and he didnt have the luxury of playing with 100 hof like kareem did.
