The 25 Greatest Centers in NBA History

24. Jack Sikma

Team(s): Sonics, Bucks
Career Stats: 15.6 PPG 9.8 RPG 3.2 APG 1.0 SPG 0.9 BPG
Accomplishments: 7x All-Star, 1x All-Defense, 1x Champion

Sikma was one of the most consistent players in the game, playing in 80-plus games 10 out of 14 seasons. The greatest center to ever live, according to Dwight Schrute, became a god in Seattle when he, along with Dennis Johnson and Gus Williams, helped the Sonics win their first and only title in 1979. He had a soft touch and is one of the few big men to lead the league in free throw percentage when shot 92 percent from the stripe in 1988 as a member of the Bucks. Sikma remains a fan favorite in Seattle.
