    Nailed top 5, not the order necessarily. Whiteside and DJ too high rating and Cousins is not #1. Glad Jokic is high though!

    Who is better than Cousins? Dude has a terrible attitude but he was the best center last year.
    Hmm. Gonna have to say, I disagree with Gasol's rating (he's slowing down, shouldn't be an 89, more like an 87), and feel Whiteside, Jordan, and Embiid are at least two points higher than they need to be.
    Whiteside and Jordan, obviously, for their offensive limitations.
    Embiid was fantastic ... when he was on the floor, which wasn't as often as anyone would like. He needs at least 70+ games of healthy play for me to see him ranking as an 86 center.

    Too high based on what?
    Id like to guess these without actually looking at the list first.
    My top 10:
    Cousins
    Davis
    KAT
    Jokic
    Embiid
    Deandre
    Gobert
    Drummond
    Whiteside
    Marc Gasol
    edit: Hmmm I know Myles Turner is a baller but top 10 already? Whiteside and Gobert seem kinda high as well. Gasol getting love for his history. I don't think hes the 3rd best center in the league. Didn't know Anthony Davis wasn't counted as a center.

    I always put him at center in my leagues so I just got used to thinking he was a center.
    Rudy will be a 93 by the end of the season, no big deal.
    Not digging the overvaluing of offensive centers, though. No way KAT is the 2nd best big in the league.

    If Embiid's an 84 than Turner is at best an 83 and more realistically an 81. Embiid is better in every way except durability compared to Turner

    It's all good. I always thought of him as a C myself since college but someone corrected me and I had to look it up myself lol

    Since I got a Jazz fan here, why is Gobert so good?
    I see his name everywhere. Hes an 88!? That means he is either an all time great defensive center or hes developed some good offense to go with his DPOTY caliber defense.
    Ima go watch highlights of his after this because dude is everywhere.
    On the KAT comment hes young but I think he definitely is the 2nd best big in the league already and he'll be the best big in the league in a couple years.
    Only thing making Demarcus a better player right now is his insane handle for a big man. Both can score from anywhere and both rebound. KAT is a better defender in theory but Cousins is very good on D and he doesn't get enough credit for that.
    The ratings aren't too surprising to me, but I am a bit surprised to see Myles at number 10 even though he is my mans. I'm a little unsure on his rating and figured Brook would be higher than him, but it seems like mostly everyone is slightly higher than expected so idk.

    Gobert finished top 3 in both offensive and defensive rating last year. IIRC, that's the first time that's ever happened.
    Defensively, he is as advertised. He doesn't chase blocks, but he contests just about everything in the paint and gives the perimeter players the green light to gamble on steals. The Jazz defense is literally crafted to funnel all the action into Gobert. His length and surprising athleticism makes him dominant on D.
    Offensively he improved a lot last year. One of the most efficient PNR finishers in the league (imagine him with Rubio, now), and he's always grabbing offensive boards due to his length and positioning inside. And for my money, he's the best screener in the game.
    Not much of a post game, but he has decent touch inside and can hit the occasional post hook shot.
    I expect him to get better this season playing in a more up-tempo offense and alongside an elite playmaker like Rubio.

    his passing is decent too when it comes to hitting weakside corner/ wing off of a roll

    Availability is a skill that can't be overrated. Embiid hasn't been very available in his young career, but I really hope he can string together a healthy season this year.
    As for Turner, rate him an 81 -- I think he's too high too, really. The lack of good centers in the league has artificially bumped up some guys ratings. Turner is getting the "he's probably the franchise center piece" treatment and though that may be fair, he needs to prove it.

    Gasol shot 38% from 3 last year on 4 attempts a game. After never having averaged more than .2 attempts a game. Averaged 20 points, 6 boards, 5 assists, and a block. eFG% right at 50. He's a solid defensive presence, and really his only flaw is he isn't a great rebounder. But he had arguably his best season of his career.

    Gobert probably should've won DPOTY last season, and I say that as a Warriors fan. He was basically best in every defensive metric, and you can't go in the paint when he's there.

    Same goes for Drummond. He's rated way too high, basically getting his rating from his raw numbers and "franchise center piece", not how effective he is on the court.

    Glad to see they got Jokic in the top 5. Most underrated player in the league

    Honestly think he's one of the more overrated though players at this point. He's really freaking good, but his following acts like he's the second coming.
