Where Does Lopez Rank Among NBA Centers?

The NBA's elite centers are few in number. Yao Ming is out for the season. Shaquille O'Neal will soon be 38. Dwight Howard is a given but is Al Jefferson a center...and isn't he returning from a torn ACL? So who's ahead of Brook Lopez? As a rookie, he averaged 13.0 and 8.1, finished ninth in the league in blocks and sixth in dunks? HoopsWorld suggests there are a few, but not many.
