The Value of the C

Blah blah blah.. Bargs sucks.  Is he deficient?  Sure.  But the reality is, a lot of Cs have been picked over the last 5 years, and very few of them end up starting on their team.  What value if any does AB bring?  Well to begin that discussion, I think we have to look at the overall picture compared to what's been drafted over the last few years. There are some very solid Centers on this list, but I don't think anyone person sticks out at me and screams dominating.   Ultimately, a dominating big comes along once every 10-15 years.  That's why there was so much hope for Greg Oden who I don't even have on here.
