NBA’s best center (2019-20)
Throughout the NBA offseason, so far, we have been ranking the top 10 players in each position in the 2019-20 season, and today we rank the best centers in the league.
If you missed our first four issues, you can read it here:
11.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, FG 45.1%
Myles Turner is not the offensive weapon of front teammate Domantas Sabonis, but he is still very convenient on the other end of the second floor.
Turner’s ability to block shots exceeds his share (2.2 times per game this season) and is clearly trying to protect his ability to stay away from the basket.
Turner is not a terrible three-pointer, shooting 33.6% this season, but if he can improve his offensive ability to 38.8% last season, it would be a good choice.
17.7 points, 15.2 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, FG 53.3%
Andre Drummond (Andre Drummond) has been severely criticized for his defensive deficiencies, and this is indeed an excellent job he has done to such a quick man.
On the positive side, Drummond has always been an elite in rebounding.
In fact, only Dennis Rodman (Dennis Rodman) can match him in sustained rebound rate.
However, a clumsy center, not a good defender, can not shoot, will only give you a far lead in today’s NBA.
10.9 points, 9.4 rebounds, 59.1% FG
Steven Adams is an excellent defender and finisher.
He is also a better teammate.
Whether it’s a methodical pass like Chris Paul preemptively or a solo team like Russell Westbrook, Adams can always find a way to make things go smoothly.
There is no shortage of hopes to have a team with fearless, nonsense fighters like Adams.
7. Seba Ibaka
16 points, 8.3 rebounds, FG 51.8%
Serge Ibaka initially struggled to adapt to the Raptors’ offense and has now returned to his home in Toronto.
One of Ibaka’s most valuable characteristics is his tendency to be promoted, whether it’s helping his team fight across the line in a large game or covering up a dead soldier.

Earlier this season, when Marc Gasol (Marc Gasol) lost, Ibaka performed particularly well. He also improved his efficiency, averaging 54.6% points per game and 40% shooting per game. Both contributed 18 points and 10.3 rebounds.
6. Hassan white wine
16.3 points, 14.2 rebounds, 3.1 blocks, 61.8 FG%
The biggest criticism of Hassan Whiteside has been his fluctuating efforts and general disregard for some games not shown in the game list.
But Whiteside has entered a contract year, and his data is beyond negligible, averaging 16.3 points, 14.2 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game.
Only four other players meet this standard, and they are all Former League Most Valuable Player and Hall of Fame (DJ Foster per hour).
19.5 points, 11 rebounds, FG 47%
No one has ever talked about Nikola Vicevic, but in five of the past six years, this man has averaged close to 20 points per game.
Vucevic has the effective range of a three-pointer, and has a lot of backdoor moves, and can pass the ball from any position on the ground.
It’s a shame that he has been trapped in Orlando all these years.
4. Karl Anthony Town
26.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, FG 50.8%
Karl-Anthony Towns averaged a career-high 26.5 points per game this season, but scoring has never been his problem.
The big guy has always been the main defensive responsibility and has not shown a strong desire for improvement.

KAT’s excellent offensive game extends beyond the three-point line, and his shooting percentage exceeds 40%.
But when it comes to his defense and overall approach, some things must change.
3. Rudy Gobert
15.1 points, 13.7 rebounds, 69.8% FG
He may have used all the grace and wisdom of Donald J. Trump to deal with the coronavirus crisis, although in the process it has almost destroyed the co-star Donovan Mitchell Relationship, but Rudy Gobert is still a hell against monsters.
This man is a rim protector of all ages and a huge changer unlike anyone else in the league.
Of course, many people will rank Karl-Anthony Towns above Rudy Gobert without blinking.
This is why I didn’t:
For starters, Gobert is the best defensive big man in this game, and Towns is one of the worst defensive.
Gobert’s huge defensive influence is the biggest reason his team is competitive, and Tom (Town)’s lack of defensive ability is the biggest reason his team has Never Really competitive.

Gobert improved the team’s offensive and defensive efficiency. The Jazz scored an extra 4.4 points per 100 possessions and 4.4 points per 1,000 possessions.
Although the Timberwolves scored an extra 12 points per 100 rounds when participating in the Towns game, the Forest also scored 7.9 points per 100 rounds when he was on the court.
Gobert’s rebounding (+2.9 RPG) and field goal percentage (+19%) also surpassed town.
2. JOEL EMBIID
23.4 points, 11.8 rebounds, FG 47.4%
Joel Embiid should feel better than him and it’s hard to escape.
Part of the reason was his poor decision-making and carelessness, but especially Because he never seemed to have a strong figure.
Despite this, he is one of the most dominant big men in NBA history (Does it remind you of anyone?).
If Embiid can improve his body and external shots, then he will become unstoppable.
1. Nikola Jokic
20.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 52.8% FG
Nikola Jokic is a big man who has always been the same as Arvydas Sabonis and Chris Webber, who throws at least two corner kicks every season , For a mortal like you, I don’t even want to try, let alone get out of it.
And think that Jokic and 41Saint pick…
As always, the lesson here is that none of us knows anything on draft night.
