is arguably the 2nd best center (after howard) in the league, unless you want to call Gasol a center. His defense is what it is, it was bad last year and is just as bad now.
that being said, this is bill simmons talking, so whatever he says is half-truth, half-humour.
stats wise he is 3rd among centers (amare 1st, howard 2nd)
but outside of stats imo he's not top 5 centers offensively
amare, howard, brook lopez, jefferson, horford
