Gortat Among Top Defensive Centers in NBA
Gortat made a career-high 82 starts this past season in Washington's run to the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and has missed only one game in two years with the Wizards.
The only change to last year's usual starting five is Otto Porter Jr. filling in for the departed Paul Pierce. With Porter at the 3 and a promising, youthful backcourt in John Wall and Bradley Beal, the perimeter positions are a big strength.
What makes the Wizards so balanced is the presence of both Gortat and Nene in the frontcourt. Now that Gortat is back, look for it to have a positive impact on both ends of the court for Washington.
