    The top 5 PFs up until the break

    Out of curiosity who do you think the top 5 PFs have been so far this season?

    I thought this would be easy, then I started to think about it, there's a lot of very solid PFs this year, how much do you put into individual performance vs team performance? I mean the list is pretty good, Love, Davis, Griffin, Dirk, Aldridge, Duncan, Millsap, Ibaka and David Lee are the obvious choices. Cutting that down to 5 feels pretty difficult.

    Right now, I'm thinking (but not certain);

    1. Anthony Davis
    2. Blake Griffin
    3. LaMarcus Aldridge
    4. Paul Millsap
    5. David Lee

    (Honorable mention; Tim Duncan, Kevin Love and Dirk)


    My list is a combination of factors, some guys are on their for individual talent, some for the way they've carried their team, some made it above others because I prefer the way they play, so that isn't strictly a list of the top 5 as in top 5 individual talent)
    Continue to believe Jackson is not the right man for this job. All I ask is that while you're at it, please demand Curry be traded as well. Because if the goal is to revert to the ways of Warriors teams past—building up something special and then destroying it immediately—we may as well go all out. No reason to half-*** it.

    Love
    Griffin
    Aldridge
    Millsap

    But I'm not sure,I feel like Ibaka should take a spot.

    I'm man enough to admit it's a homer vote.

    I wanted to put Duncan on my list, one of my favourite players of all time. But when it's based solely on this season, I just couldn't do it.

    Anthony Davis is the most intriguing player in the league IMO. Who do you guys think would be the best compliment to him at C?

    the top 3 for me are definitely Love/Davis/Griffin (in no particular order),

    after that i could throw darts at the wall to pick from Nowitzki/Duncan/Ibaka/Aldridge/Lee

    Yeah, it's pretty obvious you have a severe bias against LMA. It's proven with literally every post.

    Duncan isn't even putting up better stats than LMA and he is playing 8 less minutes per game.

    And your biggest knock against Aldridge is his supporting cast is insanely efficient applies to the Spurs as well. Parker, Ginobili, Belinelli, Splitter, Diaw and Mills all shoot as high or higher than the Blazers starting lineup.

    You've shown your true colors. You're a LMA hater. Hate on man, but I'll be sure to let everyone know when you want to deny your hate.

    Only thing worse than a hater is a hater in denial.

    I don't see how he's a hater.

    He quite literally just said Aldridge could be considered the 4th or 5th best just as easily as Duncan, Nowitzki and Ibaka.

    LOL @ you suggesting him being in my top 8 is being a hater

    hater is such a lame term. i dislike chuckers. i don't value raw stats as much as others.

    Duncan, despite the fewer mins is still a sublimely intelligent player. I can't pin-point exactly how that manifests itself on the court, but i have no doubt that it does. The opposite of intelligent play is treating the ball like it's on fire and tossing it up at the rim every chance you get regardless of whether it's the best available option. that is what Aldridge is doing this year.

    i didn't mind it so much when it was only 16 FGA a game but 20.4, jesus christ.

    This season?

    1. Anthony Davis
    2. Kevin Love
    3. Blake Griffin
    4. Dirk Nowitzki
    5. LaMarcus Aldridge

    Ibaka
    Duncan
    Millsap
    Lee

    ...round out a pretty obvious top 9. The ordering of those last 4 is tough, tho.

    Anyone who thinks LMA has been on par with Serge Ibaka or David Lee this year is absolutely underrating him.

    But let's look at his post history.

    Comes in to say LMA is not only not a 2nd tier MVP candidate (we all know MVP is a 2 man race), he's not even an integral part of the Blazers success.

    Someone posts an article about LMA and the first thing he does is go in to comment on it that it's unimpressive, not necessary, and irrelevant.

    Now on the who has been the Top 5 PFs thus far he leaves LMA off the top 5. Sure he later clarifies 5-8 are basically interchangeable but if that were true, why did he bother to place one above the other?

    He clearly doesn't like Aldridge.
