But he’s still got the Juice, too, as evidenced by his go-ahead jumper with under 20 seconds to play in last night’s 88-87 win.

The Top 20 Centers In The NBA Right Now

Marc Gasol, Joakim Noah

The true center is a dying position, but big men haven’t been completely scrapped in terms of their relevance and impact in the NBA. Despite being erased from the All-Star ballot two seasons ago, when you peruse a box score the position is still manned by someone — even if only in name.

What you will find here are the names of players manning the middle who are important to their teams based on both previous history/accolades and potential impact this coming season. Stats and analytics tell the story for some, while untapped talent and opportunity tell the story for others. It’s all relevant. Read More »
