POLL IS NOW CLOSED... Duncan is the Easy winner here. Because KG and Duncan were really the one two names in debate most of the time, they will be the top two players, we will move to number 3!


Hey everyone, we will be continuing the series to find a true top 10 list at each spot. We are on onto the POWER FORWARDS... This should be good just like the SG spot, very close at each ranking...Please vote and be sure to make comments to who you voted for to create discussion. I have included the players that should maybe have consideration to be in the top. The rest is up to you.

Update: Prince beat Gerald Wallace by one vote to take home the 10th spot on the SF Rank List.

Like I said before, I will add more players to the list as soon as we put another guy on the top 10 list.

PS: Please do not start any threads with the same title. I am capable of conducting the polls and completing the series of threads to find the top 10 players at each position. If I need some help I will ask for it. Thanks for your time.

An updated list of the polls we have completed can be found here..

i gotta hola at ma man Kevin.. i hate Boston but he at this very point in time is better then Timmy... but timmy takes care of business so it was tough, i give it to kevin cuz of his heart for the T wolves .. just did what he had to do every night without complaining like kobe and with pretty shytty team mates, spreawell, cassell << hate sam

timmy was a little bit more silver spooned, Robinson helped him out alot .. bowen, manu and tony are killers too

Tim can't dominate the paint, isn't that good anymore, yes he is one of the top PF in NBA history, but now i would put him only in 2nd, 3rd spot...

You may want to see how many votes Amare gets first - there may be a few people frustrated with not getting to vote for Amare as #2. Garnett and Duncan are much better IMO, but Amare could be a wild card.

Doesn't really matter, they could have done the #1 PF with 2 or 3 options being Tim Duncan, Garnett and possibly Stoudemire. One of those guys is number 1 no matter who you ask unless someone is either completely stupid or doesn't know what NBA stands for. When it comes to number 3 and so on then a lot more options would be needed.

Judging by the fact that Garnett is a much better shooter than Duncan and that he has hit several HUGE threes in postseasons before, you can't say that.

Give me Garnett.

Maybe KG would, maybe wouldn't...

but i can say that he would take his game down low, dominate (or at least try to do that) the basket... as Duncan had no dominance, he just played at SF i guess...



KG is worth #1 as top PF in the game today, as i said before i would still take Tim in top 3 (2nd or 3rd)... Only Amare could take the position from Timmy... I believe he will have a great year.... So that's <<<top 3....

so why we need more candidates to vote if from them there are only few contenders to that spot...

ok now 4th? - hmm Bosh...

its pretty obvious why i did not put a lot of those players in the poll yet, they are not as good as many of the guys listed above. They will be added as soon as garnett and duncan are off the board. So dont worry, I did not forget them. I wanted to avoid homer votes....

You guys understand that Duncan could be 24pts and 11 reb if he wanted. He really doesnt care about showing off and that why alot of people dislike him. But anyway, Duncan has been on a good team for years and still puts up very good stats. KG cant put up great stats on the good team.

Anyway, Tim Duncan is just better period.

BTW for all those people who say Zach sucks, he doesn't ... he might be one of the best talent and stat wise pf in this league.

Amare fans are always going on about stats, hence the nickname. Yes he score a ridiculous amount of points, but how many rings has it gotten him? Tim and KG only care about one statline, the win column. If winning means scoring 40 points, then they will. If it means 20 rebounds, 4 blocks? Whatever it takes. Tim and KG make their teammates better. Does Stoudamire? Or does he cause infighting with his ego and inability to share the ball, causing the team's third leading scorer and best defender to be traded? Amare is the only person on the planet who thinks that Phoenix is -his- team, instead of Steve Nash's. When Amare has a ring you can consider him in the top 2, right now he's nowhere close.

1. Duncan
2. Garnnett

So many things wrong with that statement.

1. Duncan is the best PF in the game, go watch some Spurs games from last year, then try to come back here again and say he's not the best, you can't.

2. The only reason he scores points is because he's a ***** on offense and does bank shots and can barely dunk and has the most boring lame game ever? Do you honestly think that is a legitimate argument as to why Duncan is not the best PF in the game?

3. Here is what you said to sum it up.... timmy d is boring and does gay bank shots. i didnt watch a single spurs game last year because timmy d suckz. im basing my opinionz n whether or not i like to watch him.

4. He is still the best defensive big man in the game one-on-one. He has great footwork in the post and an uncanny ability to score whenever he wants to, or needs to. He always steps it up in the playoffs, when his team actually needs him, and he is one of the most clutch players in the game today.

WOw.. TIm duncan ? Today? Comon we all know hes on the decline ... He was a great PF... but this is not even funny.. Hes on decline.. I put KG and Amare b4 him

Kg- the defensive presence is unmatched, the leadership, the intensity, the fire, the desire to win... you can't beat that.. and the numbers... He is easily the third best player in the NBA.. and hes defintly the best PF... HE just won a ring.. so you can't evne use that against him... IF KG was playing on the spurs with Pop.. in the defensive system.. WOw.. he might have about 5 by now... NO WAY DUNCAN IS BETTER THAN GARNETT

AMare at this point in his career Is way better than Duncan.. He will put him to school.. his explosiveness... and ability to score is unmatched by anyone at the position.. DUncan Back in the day? Yes.. b/c of his leadership, dominance, and defense.... But TOday? AMARE! ... by far.. Unstoppable
As far as the player that will produce the most.. its amare... IF he works on his defense i would put him #1... for now Ill put Garnett over AMare.. but Amare with a ring.. and Some better defence.... WILl be # 1.. I say in two Years Amare will be at the top of that list

My list goes:

1) Kevin Garnett
2) Amare Stoudamire
3) Tim Duncan
4) Chris Bosh
5) Dirk Novitzki
6) Elton brand
7) Carlos Boozer
8) David West

Actually, looking to win this season, and this season only. Duncan would be the obvious choice.

Duncan is the same age as Garnett, if you think Duncan is declining then so is KG. Duncan can score in big bunches when he wants to, I havent seen Garnett's ability to do that. Tim Duncan is arguably a better one-on-one defender than KG. Duncan's post passing ability is great, he's still a great rebounder. And there is no doubt Duncan is way more clutch than Garnett.

As for the Amare Stoudemire argument. Amare is still young, and I havent seen the ability to create his own shot, post up, play great defense (such as Duncan, Garnett). I honestly can't see how anyone can argue Amare > Duncan.

AMare at this point in his career Is way better than Duncan.. He will put him to school.. his explosiveness... and ability to score is unmatched by anyone at the position.. DUncan Back in the day? Yes.. b/c of his leadership, dominance, and defense.... But TOday? AMARE! ... by far.. Unstoppable
As far as the player that will produce the most.. its amare... IF he works on his defense i would put him #1... for now Ill put Garnett over AMare.. but Amare with a ring.. and Some better defence.... WILl be # 1.. I say in two Years Amare will be at the top of that list

My list goes:

1) Kevin Garnett
2) Amare Stoudamire
3) Tim Duncan
4) Chris Bosh
5) Dirk Novitzki
6) Elton brand
7) Carlos Boozer
8) David West

Dude are you serious? Chris Bosh over Dirk? KG and AMARE over Tim Duncan?!?

I get that Amare's young and you think he has "potential" or something but later he might be the best PF but certainly not right now. I can see why you think KG is better because he just won a ring and his bandwagon is pretty huge but if you want to say that Timmy has more than him.

Tim:
Playoffs: PPG 20.2 RPG 14.50 APG 3.3
Amare
Playoffs: PPG 23.2 RPG 9.00 APG 0.4

Thats about as recent as we can get...

Duncan plays better post defense? Amare avgs 2.1 blocks per game thats better than duncan, kg, aj, and Rasheed. Someone has to guard the Suns basket. Not bad for someone who doesn't play defense.

still Duncan imo..........KG has a ring, but he's still a little too passive for me to give it to him over Duncan...Amare could be if he'd play defense.....Dirk is soft.....West is a great player, but he's no Duncan.....Boozer is a tad bit overrated to me....Bosh needs a lil more "power" in his power forward game.....Brand can be great when healthy, but he's still not better than Duncan.........

Tim Duncan is the greatest power forward of all-time. He's led his team to 4 NBA titles. He's won 2 MVPS, 3 Finals MVPS, he's always ranked in the top in terms of rebounding, blocks, points per game, and he's a flat-out winner. The Spurs have the highest winning pct. in the league since he's joined the team. Duncan is the best.

It would be ridiculous if Duncan does not win this poll. The only player close to him at power forward is KG, but Duncan is better then KG. Duncan is clutch and has proven he can carry a team to 4 titles, both he and Shaq have the most titles since the retirement of MJ.

Duncan will win....and im more than confident KG will win number 2. Pretty positive Amare has 3 down pat. But at 4 i think it HAS to be former MVP dirk. im not so sure dirk will get number 4.

i gotta hola at ma man Kevin.. i hate Boston but he at this very point in time is better then Timmy... but timmy takes care of business so it was tough, i give it to kevin cuz of his heart for the T wolves .. just did what he had to do every night without complaining like kobe and with pretty shytty team mates, spreawell, cassell << hate sam

timmy was a little bit more silver spooned, Robinson helped him out alot .. bowen, manu and tony are killers too

the only reason garnett won a title was cuz he had ray allen and paul pierce.

A lot of the blocks also had to do with the Suns fast style. I think a alot of his scoring was due to that system. I think his numbers will dip a bit this season with the new coach.

Pau is better than Bosh and Boozer and maybe Brand. Gasol is a World Class Player and he showed it against the US big men that included Bosh and Howard (Boozer didn't get off the bench).

Coach K hasnt played Boozer. not to sure why. Pau is not better than Bosh. No way. u switch Pau with Bosh and the lakers are winning the title with ease. Same with Brand. Pau is soft. Boozer, Bosh and Brand bring a tougness Phil Jackson would love

Go back and take a look at what kind of D Pau played on KG, TD, and Boozer. All 3 were held to their playoff low in FG%. He could have played better, but he was there in a new system half a year. He should be really good this year.

he showed it in the finals too, when he was completely dominated. Pau isn't as good as Bosh or Brand, and arguably, Boozer is better as well. Our big men on the US team had zero plays run for them. Pau had a ton, and played the majority of the game, so yes, his stats were better. But in the NBA, Pau isn't a top 5 PF

For the people who say that Tim Duncan is getting older you do realize that both TD and KG are the same age do you? Plus last year when both were part of a big 3 which are really close in value, TD was a little better, and in the playoffs TD stepped up and helped his team, and maybe if Manu wasn't injured the Spurs would be playing the Celtics. What a series that would be? There is no question that career wise TD is better but even last year Tim Duncan was better than KG.

Tim Duncan-I can see why people pick KG as well. Amare is an amazing player, but from what I've seen, he still has some areas to improve on before he can be considered as good as Duncan/KG. He's close, but his defense is sloppy and he seems prone to fouling. In a couple of years, he may well be the best pf, but not right now.

which is why he is 34 all time in playoff PPG(behind TD)
16th in RPG(behind TD)
24th in playoff BPG(behind the number 3 duncan)
and 134th all time in FG%(duncan is almost 100 ahead)

so yeah he really takes over all the important games more than duncan

he does have a few areas, like, he should be able to stop my grandma from scoring on the block. Amare was given a gift when Nash was his point. Let's see what he does in 4 years, when Steve is done handing him cupcakes.
