Ranking 70 Greatest Centers in NBA History
The 70 greatest centers were ranked based on several evaluations, including championships won (particularly if they were key cog on team), individual accolades (MVPs, All-Star appearances, etc.), win shares, statistical production, longevity and overall reputation. For active players, metrics were used such as how they have performed compared to others at the current stage of their careers.
Also, it's worth noting that some players were viewed more as power forwards despite playing some center in their careers. Therefore, players who fit into that category were not ranked in this list.
