Perhaps the Laker that was most worthy of making the top 10 list at their position is Lopez, who led all centers in three-point field goals last season with the Nets while averaging 20.5 points and 5.4 rebounds.
Lopez failed to make the list though as DeMarcus Cousins came in at No. 1 with a 92 rating. After Cousins another former Kentucky Wildcat, Karl-Anthony Towns was ranked second at 91.
A trio of international centers completed the top five as Marc Gasol (89), Nikola Jokic (88) and Rudy Gobert (88) followed Towns.
The top 10 was rounded out by Hassan Whiteside and DeAndre Jordan, both given 87 ratings, Joel Embid (86), Andre Drummond (85) and Myles Turner (84).
While the center position in the NBA was fading for a while, it is now back in a big way with athletic centers that are able to stretch the floor and handle the ball like guards.
