Top Five Centers for 2009-10
Tim Povtak of NBA FanHouse lists the top five centers in the NBA, heading into the 2009-2010 season. No surprise who's listed at #1.
Dwight Howard, Magic: There is no argument, and not even a debate on No. 1, which makes it kind of boring. He's just too athletic, too strong physically and too motivated for anyone else to challenge him for the top. The rest of the league should be worried because he's going to continue improving for a couple more years. He led the Magic into the Finals last season, and he's such a dominating presence that unless the front office screws up and lets the team erode around him, he'll keep them near the top of the league for the next decade. After leading the league in rebounding and blocked shots, he'll improve offensively this season.
