Polladaday: Best Center in the East?

Dwight Howard is undoubtedly the best pure center in the West…but who takes that title in the East?

Who's the best center in the Eastern Conference?

    the voting is even more awful. How is Tyson Chandler really leading the charge? I mean do any of these f*cking people watch basketball?


    Tyson Chandler is averaging 10 points, 8 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks, his defensive rating is 105!!!! (defense is his ONLY skill) and you f*ckheads are voting him the best Center in the East?

  • Caboose

    There’s a simple answer: who does he play for? Imagine if Bynum played on the Knicks.

  • Lew


  • jim brown

    bynum is the best injured center in the league.. the best of it.

    Are people seriously voting for Brook Lopez?! Sure, if you enjoy a stat line of 18 points and 5 rebounds per game…..

  • King_23

    Chris Bosh

  • Vince

    I am disappointed in 95% of people. They obviously don’t watch basketball. Tyson Chandler hasn’t been playing as well as previous seasons, Roy Hibbert is having one of the worst years in his career, Noah is being his normal self, Bynum hasn’t even played this season and Brook Lopez… do I even need to explain myself on that one? He’s a scorer, thats it.

    Greg Monroe is the best Center in the East, he’s averaging 18 pts 10 reb 4 ast 1 blk a game. How he isn’t on this list and why he never gets any recognition is beyond me.

  • Otis

    Kevin Garnett

    Best center in the east today?
    By all star break?
    At the end of the year?
    Noah today. Lopwz by All star break. Bynum end of the year(end of season/next season).

  • LakeShow

    I think it’s because he is a tweener.
    He should be playing PF, but has to play center till Drummond is ready.

  • D-TOWN

    Why does slam keep disrespecting detroit. seriously monroe is the most talented center right now. just cuz were 4-11

  • Vince

    Not just Slam unfortunately

  • Vince

    Well, even as a tweener he’s playing pretty well. Drummond? Detroit fans would love him to actually play with Greg, except Coach Frank has a weird concept regarding developing young talented bigmen. He’s a hack.

  • LakeShow

    I wouldn’t call him a “hack” per se, but he doesn’t always make solid choices as far as developing talents and playing for the future. He is a smart x’s and o’s guy, just can’t relate to players all that well is what I see.

    I love Monroe’s game and he is a top 3 center without doubt in the east.

  • Holiday

    Well if were gonna vote for injured players Nene should be in the discussion. But how does KG get left out?

  • D-TOWN

    like seriously, look at this list bynum is pretty much done for the time being, hibbert is an absolute bust since the contract, has had 1 good game all year. next is noah who has like varejao playing 40 mins a night. lopez is a talented soft big man, never been a rebounder and now this year he averages 2+ blocks and everyone is dickridin. chandler is absolute garbage, totally overated have fun paying 15 mill for him ny.

  • Justin Martinez

    Anderson Varejao. Look at tonight’s boxscore

  • Vince

    If you’ve followed the team this season, you’ll see Frank still has a long way to go before being an average NBA coach, he has poor situational awareness and a dodgy rotation. It may be Detroit but hell, they sure as hell shouldn’t be 4 – 11.

    Agreed on Monroe, whats crazy is that this is only his third season! Wish he’d get more cred.

  • Vince

    Hey man, not denying it haha look at my post a little further down.

    As far as I’m concerned, Moose is one of the best big men in the league, its sad how he gets no recognition though.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Andersen Varejao, Greg Munroe, or Chris Bosh. None of the guys above.

  • WillyWaa

    Marc Gasol

  • SirGrey

    Al Horford ? Lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HolyBaller Dillan Leu

    Is in the West.

  • Bored

    Chandler is garbage? ha!

  • Bored

    i dont get it either

  • Bored

    who do you think it is? there isnt much choice. Varejao is playing the best imo. i think Chandler makes the least amount of mistakes offensively.

  • Bored

    why are people sleeping on him? i dont get it. maybe they just forgot.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Al Horford has been the best Center in the East this season.

  • GotHandles?

    That’s a pretty ugly list. What happened to the Ewings, Zos, Hakeems, D. Robs, Shaqs? Are dominant centers a dying breed? These guys are all average.

  • pramoo

    Chris Bosh 20.1 , 8.4 rebounds , 1.3 blks over Lopez

  • jamie

    varjou the way hes been playing
