I absolutely love Noah and everything he brings to the table, he's an amazing teammate, always leaves it all on the court and brings a very well rounded game, but as the best player on a team I don't see him having quite the impact as the #1 center. My vote goes to Cousins because of his ability to be a #1 option on offense and the fact that he seems to finally be maturing into a player and person you can build your team around.

Nomination for Howard.

I have a very different opinion of this. I've seen Cousins play in person many times and his body language shouts out frustration and cockiness more than maturity and leadership. He takes ill-advised shots, forces bad turnovers, and seems to only play hard when it's convenient. Granted he is in a kind of shitty situation, that's not enough to make him the best Center in the league.

As somebody who admittedly doesn't see a whole lot of Kings games I could be wrong about how far Cousins maturation process has come along, but his offensive skills are still a good bit ahead of most current NBA centers, I see him, Gasol and Jefferson among the games best. Cousin's skillset makes him easier to build around than the other options

Vote - Cousins

Nominate - Gasol

Marc Gasol squeaks by this one with a one vote win.

I'm voting Joakim Noah again. Also Al Horford has been penciled in as a Center so do not nominate him for Power forward.

Nominate Andre Drummond

Joakim Noah
DeMarcus Cousins
DeAndre Jordan
Al Jefferson
Al Horford
Andre Drummond
