Hey everyone, we will be continuing the series to find a true top 10 list at each spot. PG and SG have been completed, I will skip over the first poll as there is no reason what so ever to do one as Lebron Is number 1 without question. The players below are players who should start the year as a SF.

Please vote and be sure to make comments to who you voted for to creat discussion. I have only included 10 SF's on the list. It is debatable who I left on this list but more will players will be added as we get through the obvious choices for the top 5, Pierce, Marion, Butler etc...

Enjoy!

1) Lebron James
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)

I think this list is the hardest one yet, After 1, I really think 4 or 5 guys who could be number 2..

I disagree, I'd take Caron Butler over Melo. All Melo can do is score, Caron is a complete player. I voted Pierce in this one though. I think he is underrated.

For me it was between Butler and Pierce. I picked Butler but I had trouble with the selection. Like I said, this could go a numerous amount of ways considering the talent in discussion.

Pierce, been a proven scorer, proved he is a proven defender and team-player.

Pierce or Melo... Going with Melo this time...

Iggy is NOT top 10 after his first year...

08-18-2008, 09:24 AM
i think iggy should be added to the SF list, he will be around 8-9 ish, he is domanat at the 3 position
second is mello, he has proven he can score the lights out better then peirce
paul has definetly better defense
but mello has been able to do his thing without a KG behind him

MiamiHeat
08-18-2008, 09:28 AM
no iggy was in the SG list
he cant be in the SF too

Pierce. He plays defense and is a better scorer than Caron. Not to mention he led his team to the NBA Finals. Pretty easy decision for me.

i voted for melo cuz he deserves it.. he made the nuggets from lottery team to playoff team when he came to the league and he has yet to miss the playoffs since his rookie year unlike pierce who have missed the past few playoffs before this season and he needed 2 future HOF ray allen and kevin garnett to make the playoffs

Wrong. He's made the Eastern Conference Finals before with the next best player on his team being Antoine Walker. He just needed Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett to win the Finals. But what player doesn't need a superstar to help him win the Championship?

innovator
08-18-2008, 10:15 AM
yeah but that was like way before and antoine walker was GREAT at his prime but in 05,06,07 where was pierce????

oh yeah billups didnt have a superstar when he won the championship, olajuwon didnt have a superstar either

he cant be in the SF too

why not, if he was on my team i think he would be more effective as a SF even though he is a natural SG, he doesnt have great ball handeling or outside shooting but he is tough great rebounder and scrappy in the lane, i would rather him drive then shoot ... he is a SF too me, why cant he be on both lists, i would have put Iverson on PG/SG lists?

I choose Pierce, but if you would have asked me this question last year I would have said Melo.What a difference a year makes. Next is between Butler and Melo, im my opinion.

put mello infront of Kevin and behind Allen ... and mello would be unanomous over paul .. who the hell is paul anyways, he plays with some heart but to me he is 3rd or 4th... he needs a team and its been proven .. injury prone and sometimes greedy with bad shot selection

i was leaning towards melo, but hell what has he done in his nba career? hes shown he has the skills to be and elite player. Pierce has been consistent his whole nba career. gotta go with pierce, with melo close behind

I've always thought PP was the 2nd best SF in the game, so I'm going with him

i think its been proven that everyone needs a team(kobe lebron ai melo kg pierce allen).....lol didnt they teach u when u were 5 that there is no i in team lol


??? besides last season when we won 24 games an he missed time he has never been out wit an injury....besides gettin his teeth knocked out....twice....an even then he only missed a game

anyone else think that pierce would not be as high rated had he not won with kg and ray allen this year? just a thought.

You gotta give it up to paul pierce... melo is a close third.

Thatruth32
08-18-2008, 01:26 PM
id say its close with melo and paul... but given his recent ring the edge should go to pierce

thats a silly argument. why wouldnt it have something to do with it. phelps is being considered the greatest olympian. thats like saying you think him winning 8 medals has anything to do with that.. OF COURSE. why take away what pierce did last season. played with k.g and allen and was the teams leading scorer.stepped up in the playoffs and shut down the mvp on defense all while becoming finals mvp. it does and should move em up.

Mello for sure but he won't win because Pierce just won the championship and "must be better".

Peirce is a great player.......... but i think he is some what overrated he aint better than melo remember last year? he is a great player but melo takes this one

I voted Pierce but I acknowledge that Melo is a better offensive player.

How can you guys vote Pierce #2???? Half the guys left up there put up better numbers, and if your doing it based on defense Ron Artest owns Pierce and still puts up more points. Maby a couple years ago when the Celtics sucked he could be #2...but not today.

08-18-2008, 06:42 PM
i dont even think melo deserves #3, i think that shud go 2 ron-ron. melo duznt play any d AT ALL! Worst defensive SF on this list. if this was strictly rated 4 offence, then melo wud b #1, but overall hes shud b #4.

if Rudy Gay is on this list then Danny Granger should be too

AgentViet
08-18-2008, 08:20 PM
Pierce, the only other player that should be debated here in Melo. Melo's obviously the better scorer and has the edge on rebounding, but Pierce is the better all round player. His defense is much much better along with play making skills.
