    Prediction: heels' team makes it to the semifinals, where he sits Shaq. The team falls in that, leading simulated Shaq to rap about Kobe and his inability to win without him, culminating in sim-Shaq asking sim-Kobe about the culinary properties of his rear end.

    You don't consider David Robinson in the top 20 centers or players? Because I can understand the argument for the latter, but you're crazy if you don't think he's in the top 20 centers.

    Still deciding between four players. Thankfully I'm guaranteed two of them due to the draft position, but its which two I have to figure out.

    Seriously. The admiral is a top ten center all time, at the very least. Come on man!

    Nice copy-paste fail.

    It's a good thing I'm not playing this game, I would probably just select the players from Space Jam.

    Jason Kidd ought to have been credited for his role.

    Hint: I'm taking Tweety Bird with my next pick.

    Just giving you all fair warning before I unleash his full potential upon the world. :p

    robinson kinda choked until tim duncan showed up. that's why i wouldn't put him in the top 20. on pure talent, possibly, but the mental side of it under pressure not so much.

    and then there was that he got completely annihilated by hakeem the year he won the MVP. yea, hakeem was to 15 talent all time, but i can't see someone who's that high in their own position getting that completely owned. especially in an MVP season.

    if by "kinda choked" you mean "joined the worst team in the league and single-handedly made them a viable contender during one of the most stacked eras in league history" then i agree.

    still got completely destroyed by hakeem.

    actually, i take back the choking comment. it was that he lacked a killer instinct. that's what bugged me about him.

    Seriously would love to see your top twenty NBA centers list sometime.

    I mean I get what he's saying. I'd put Robinson under Kwame Brown. Just look how tough that guy is! Being so terrible for so long and still playing in the NBA? Talk about mental fortitude.

    maybe top twenty was a little much, but definitely not in my top ten.

    wilt was just too dominant to not be that high up the list, but i'd take shaq, hakeem, abdul-jabar or russell before i'd want chamberlain.

    tell you what. i'll see about putting together a top ten or something like that list of centers for you.

    and no, dwight howard will not be seen on it. or the top twenty. he's too soft in the head by a helluva lot. and just too much of a *****
