2011 NBA Draft: My top 10 Centers

Published on June 22, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

With the 2011 NBA draft coming up here are my top 10-centers in the draft.  I have only really listed my top 6 because they arent to many good prospects in this year’s draft.  This is bad news with so many teams looking for quality centers in the draft.

1.Jonas Valanciunas (Lithuania)

Strengths- excellent around the basket including a hook shoot, great length and athlete, good rebounder and shot blocker. Weaknesses- needs to add weight, jump shoot is inconsistent, work on better post moves.

2. Enes Kanter (Kentucky)

Strengths- very strong rebounder, excellent finisher around the basket, solid mid range jumper. Weaknesses-not great athlete needs to become better shoot blocker, can get tired easily

3.Bismack Biyombo (Congo)

Strengths-outstanding length brings energy on the floor, great leaper and shoot blocker. Weaknesses- very limited offensively, no jump shoot at all, no hands

4.Nikola Vucevic (USC Junior)

Strengths- very high basketball IQ, excellent shooter even from three, great rebounder. Weaknesses- needs to be more physical, not a great athlete, needs to handle contact better

5.Keith Benson (Oakland Senior)

Strengths- excellent shoot blocker has jump shoot with range, great length and athleticism. Weaknesses- forces too many shoots, needs better upper body strength, needs to play defense without fouling.


6.Jordan Williams (Maryland Sophomore)
