POLL: Offseason Brain-Teaser

Although NBA rosters are still being firmed-up for the coming season, we are now in the doldrums of the doldrums of the offseason and I have a little brain-teaser for all y’all to keep your NBA analyst skills sharp. 

In 2009 Yao Ming was the starting center for the Western Conference All-Star Team and Shaquille O’Neal was the back-up center.  Unfortunately, Yao is out for the season and Shaq has been traded to the Eastern Conference Cavaliers.  So I want all you brainiac’s out there to tell us who will be the STARTING center for the 2010 Western Conference All-Star Team.

Below I’ve listed the teams in order of their 2009 finish along with names of their centers.  I’m not familiar with all the rosters so forgive me if I listed the wrong person(s).  Just leave a comment and I’ll try to update it if needed.  And I did combine some of the non-playoff teams to shorten the poll.  Good luck because I haven’t been able to figure it out myself yet.

Please note: The poll question is NOT “who is the best center in the west?”  (If you want to discuss that in the comments, feel free.)  I specifically asked about starting in the all-star game which is based on fan voting.  So it involves some interesting wrinkles beyond just ability like popularity, small-market vs. big-market, etc.

Lastly, I don’t post here often.  So if I am violating any site rules about Fan Posts no offense intended.  (Let’s see I didn’t swear or even use the “L word”.)
