I dont consider Horford and Jefferson centers because theyre both 6'9 PF's who play like PFs.

Im basing this in terms of everything, but especially impact and value to their team on the court:

Yao
Dwight
Shaquille O'neal
Chris Kaman
Nene
Andrea Bargnani
Joel Pryzbilla
Kendrick Perkins
Brendan Haywood
Marcus Camby
Zydrunas Illgauskas
Jermaine O'neal
Greg Oden
Marc Gasol
Samuel Dalambert
Nenad Kristic
Zaza Pachullia
Erick Dampier
Rasho Nestervic
Roy Hibbert


I had a hard time putting Bargs over major contributors like Perkins and Pryzbilla but its hard to deny the talent difference, but still what Pryz and Perk and even Haywood provide for their teams on defence especially can be argued trumps anything Bargs brings to the table at this moment in terms of impact.

d12 is undoubtedly the best centre in the world, i dare you to say otherwise!!! (oh you already did haha).

Perkins higher, Kaman lower, we agree mostly.
