The Five Greatest Centers in NBA History

We have reached the final article in my series of the Greatest Players in NBA History by position.

Some of the great ones who would make my list of Best Centers, if it were a top 10, include Dave Cowen, who was basically a “Floor Burn” in green Converse tennis shoes. The guy gave 150 percent every single game.

I'd have to include Moses Malone, who was one of the greatest offensive rebounders the game has ever seen, even if most of those misses were his own. My favorite quote from Mo was when he won the MVP in 1979 and he thanked Rudy Tomjanovich and Calvin Murphy for missing so many shots.

Willis Reed and Robert Parrish are two others who deserve a mention in this article, landing just outside the Top Five, which follows in the upcoming slideshow. Enjoy!
