9. Omer Asik, Houston Rockets

Asik had a remarkable season, averaging 10.1 points, 11.7 rebounds in only 30 minutes of playing time. In addition to solid numbers, he had a very respectable 33 double-doubles during the season.

The most surprising number of Asik’s season, however, is the 82 games he started. Playing in 82 games is an accomplishment for a player at any position. Asik was able to *start* in 82 games.

Though he is fantastic around the rim, Asik is a terrible passer and shooter, which drops him down to number nine on this list.

    Yeah, Hibbert as the 6th best center…give me a break. Top three and no less. He’s better all-round than both Lopez and Noah while easily being a better defender than Gasol. Dwight is nothing but an overpaid Griffin type, if he can’t dunk it then he’s throwing up bricks.
