A Train was very good on both ends of floor. Jabbar always says he played him the toughest. Great that he finally made Hall of Fame.

31 Jermaine O'Neal Jermaine O'Neal Jermaine Lee O'Neal is an American former professional basketball player. The 6 ft 11 in, 255 lb forward-center had a successful high school career and declared his eligibility for the 1996 NBA draft straight out of high school.

Hibbert and Noah over o'neal no way. This dude was the most dominate low post defender for a stretch of time with the pacers

Yeah but back on the Pacer he was cold. He was known as a legend. He made 3s, dunks, and lovely double clutch layups. Nowadays he is the known for the GSW and for his shoes.

32 Darryl Dawkins Darryl Dawkins Darryl Dawkins was an American professional basketball player, most noted for his days with the National Basketball Association's Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Nets, although he also played briefly for the Detroit Pistons and Utah Jazz late in his career.
33 Anthony Davis Anthony Davis Anthony Marshon Davis Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the New Orleans Pelicans of the National Basketball Association.
34 Magic Johnson Magic Johnson Earvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. is a retired American professional basketball player who played point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association for 13 seasons.

He could have played center if he wanted to, he should definitely count. No center can pass, shoot, steal like he can. So even if his official position is PG, he should be among the top Centers in NBA history.

That doesn't even make sense. Magic was point guard.

He's a point guard

He was good but a point gaurd

36 Roy Hibbert

Ah if you are being defended all you do is pass the ball to him and he will DUNK THE BALL RIGHT IN THE BASKET! '

Ahh Adams has a good gameplay that any shooters can't pass through it

Could be the #3 shot blocker of all time, behind Wilt and Bill Russell.

Great center in his prime
