New team and a new start but number one mantle stays the same for D12.
The annual NBA general manager survey is out again which means one of two things, controversy is set to abound and the season is days away.
fanatix will break down all of the important information from this year’s survey which includes several surprising results.
All 30 GMs responded to 56 different questions about the best teams, players, coaches, fans, and off-season moves.
General managers were not permitted to vote for their own team or personnel. Percentages are based on the pool of respondents to each question of the survey, rather than all 30 GMs.
Who is the best center in the NBA?
1. Dwight Howard, Houston — 65.5%
2. Marc Gasol, Memphis — 20.7%
3. Tim Duncan, San Antonio — 10.3%
4. Roy Hibbert, Indiana — 3.4%
Last year: Dwight Howard — 93.3%
fanatix says: He might have been seen as the best centre in the land again, but Dwight Howard’s grip on the title is looser than what it was last season. Howard will have plenty to prove this year after his one-year celebrity marriage with the Los Angeles Lakers ended up in divorce court, and by the way, Kobe got to keep the kids. After being plagued by injuries and off and on-court personality clashes, Howard will have no excuses left and will need to put up big numbers or risk being overtaken by the likes of Marc Gasol and Roy Hibbert who have both shown to be, arguably, better all-round centres than Howard.
