The final positional ranking of the NBA off-season is here.

In the latest episode of the Pickaxe and Roll podcast, Ryan Blackburn teases a special announcement before ranking the top 10 centers in the NBA today. Nikola Jokić of the world champion Denver Nuggets and Joel Embiid of the second round Philadelphia 76ers continue to vie for the top spot, but who else ranks among the best at the position?

Can older veterans like the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Rudy Gobert and the Milwaukee Bucks’ Brook Lopez hold off younger centers like Bam Adebayo, Deandre Ayton, and Alperun Sengun? Who else can crack the top list of centers in the NBA today?

Ryan shares his rankings and explanations before discussing Nuggets backup center Zeke Nnaji in greater detail. The 22-year-old is entering his fourth season and just became one of the most important players in the Nuggets rotation. Can we capitalize on his opportunity? Or, will the Nuggets have to find someone else to back up Jokić at the center spot?
