The four players who were known as the number one center in the NBA in those years quickly stepped down from the altar.
NBA No. 1 center Howard
Howard was known as the No. 1 center in the NBA during his peak period, during the Magic period.
He led the team to the finals, and personally won 3 best defensive players, 5 rebounds, 2 blocked shots, 5 selections to the best first team, and so on.
After leaving the Magic, Howard began to decline, and was later called a cancer in the locker room. If the Lakers hadn’t signed him, he might have left the NBA.
NBA No. 1 center Noah
Noah recently joined the Clippers. After Noah left the Bulls, he wandered around, even without the ball to play.
Noah was selected by the Bulls with the 9th overall pick in 2007, and gradually became the top defensive gate in the league. The 13-14 season was his peak, averaging 12.6 points, 11.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, and 1.24 steals and 1.51 blocks on the defensive end
, won the best defensive player of the season.
Also selected to the best first team, the first team is the best player in the five positions, so Noah was the league’s first center at the time.
Noah’s scoring is not so explosive, but the defense and rebounds are good, and the important point is that he can pass the ball. A center averages 5.4 assists per game.
NBA first center Jr. Jordan
Jordan joined the Nets this season, and there seems to be no news, averaging only 8.3 points and 9.9 rebounds per game.
Jordan was a second-round pick in 2008. If Paul hadn’t gone to the Clippers, he would never have reached the height he is now.
In the 15-16 season, Jordan averaged 12.7 points, 13.8 rebounds and 1.65 blocks per game. He was selected to the best first team and the best defensive first team. He is known as the first center in the NBA.
After Paul left, Jordan began to go downhill. It seemed that the pie-eating insiders followed Paul.
NBA No. 1 Center Cousins
Cousins was known as the league’s number one center at the time, and there was absolutely no suspense!
It was said at the time that he was the first super center in the small ball era, which is true.
In the 13-14 season, he averaged 20 10 5 data per game, three-pointers, breakthroughs, dribbles, and even one-stop, completely adapted to small balls.
The above four players all quickly stepped down from the altar. Howard was due to personality and injuries, Noah was due to injuries, Jordan was overrated, and Cousins was also due to injuries.
The current No. 1 center in the NBA, some say it’s Embiid, some say it’s Jokic.
