Top 5 Frontcourts in the NBA this season?


How would your list look?

So far...

1. Lamar Odom & Pau Gasol
2. Paul Millsap & Al Jefferson
3. David West & Emeka Okafor
4. LaMarcus Aldridge & Marcus Camby
5. Dirk Nowitzki & Tyson Chandler

EDIT: I'm just going on how the starting frontcourts have performed so far.

SF counts as a frontcourt player, right?

TO to the CHI
11-10-2010, 05:49 PM
Lakers
Boston
Miami
Orlando
Utah

Having the Heat on this list is essentially insane. Unless you are considering SF James to be part of the frontcourt, which seems to miss the point of the thread.

Really Big Z - Joel Anthony- Howard - Haslem rotation at C with Bosh at Pf is one of the top front courts?

11-10-2010, 05:52 PM
I looked it up. SF is part of the front court. That is why i put Miami at 3.

lakers are a close second or actually they could be better than orlando im not so sure

If we are talking just PF/C you have to look at the Hawks and Bulls.

Blazers#1Fan
11-10-2010, 06:24 PM
LA - Gasol,Artest,Odom(Bynum,Barnes)
Celtics - Shaq,KG,PP,(big baby,J.O.,perkins)
Bulls - Noah,Boozer,Deng(or possibly Melo if the trade happens)
ORL - D.Howard,Lewis,(Bass,Pietrus,Gortat,Anderson)
POR - Camby,Aldridge,Batum(Oden,Pryzbilla,Cunningham Sometimes Mathews,ROY,Fernandez)
Den - Nene,Harrington,Melo(Martin,Anderson)
SAS - Duncan,Blair,Jefferson

front courts is PF/C/SF theres no such thing as just PF/C front court what would you call a SF a middle court

what about Houston?

they got Yao Ming - Luis Scola - Brad Miller

Rivera
11-10-2010, 06:31 PM
Atm they have 3 bigman hurt: Perk, JO, Shaq

JO is always hurt u miami fans should know that

Shaq in my book isnt even hurt hes just getting his usual rest in the middle of the season like he always has these past few years

hes got this strech and he will prolly have one or 2 more streches of a "bruised knee"

and dont forget the rasheed wallace factor my intel from the garden have been tellin me since traning camp started that rasheed wallace still has a place in mass and that hes always around the celtics before and after games

they keep tellin me....watch rivera rasheed wallace is gonna come back around or after the all star break like PJ brown did and join this team for the last half of the season for the playoffs or what rasheed calls "money time"

boston still has a top 3 front court in the NBA with what they got in baby/kg/eden and they got more comin

Gotta see how Boozer fits in when he comes back. I assume it'll work out fine, so Noah/Boozer/Deng is probably top 5 worthy.

Along with:

Lakers: obviously.
Boston: extremely deep.
Magic: best Center in the game.
Heat: IDC if Center is weak, Lebron + Bosh is too ill. And the reserves are money (UD, JJ, Z).

I also like Dallas, Portland, New Orleans, Utah, Memphis, Atlanta (at the 4-5), LAC (potential with Griffin-Kaman).

I'm sure I'm missing a team, but those are the ones whom stand at the top of my head right now. I wouldn't put the Lakers 1st though, they really do lack at the 5. Aside from Bynum [who's always injured anyways], there really isn't much to back him up.

What games are you watching??? :facepalm:Bosh has proven he is not capable of being a 3rd option...he cant even grab 10 boards a game or play good defense..come on now...

Bosh has never been a good defensive player. And maybe he never will be. He's a pretty good rebounder though. To base something off such a small amount of games. Well really I expect nothing less in the NBA forum. Bosh last year put up a TRB% of 17.7 thats pretty good. He's a career 14.8 although I feel if you take out his first couple of years it would be higher. I expect him to be around 15-16 which is nothing to scold at.

The problem with the nba forum is people don't use intelligence they base everything off of small samples with nothing but garbage stats Joe Morgan would even think suck.

OK, people.... for the record.... a frontcourt is comprised of a center and two forwards. If you choose to go into the bench to consider teams' "frontcourt rotations" of centers and forwards, that's up to you. But it's depressing that I'm wasting time on a web site where half the people participating don't know what a frontcourt is.

It is NOT just PF and C. It is C and both F's.

#1 Gasol + Odom - Lakers (you really can't debate that this point in the season)
#2 Jefferson + Millsap - Jazz (Cough Cough, Good try on defence Heat)
#3 Deng + Noah - Bulls (Noah Is just a beast and Deng has been playing well this season)
#4 Bass + Howard - Magic (Howard on his own is good enough to post up at #4)
#5 Ming + Scola - Rockets (i wish Yao wasn't always injured with Scola playing like this they could challenge Lakers for #1 on this list Easily)

LMAO at the double standard on here... people don't put Miami on the list b/c Bosh is having a slow start (15 and 6)... but they do include guy like Andrew Bynum (hasnt played), Yao Ming (averaging 10 and 5 and cant stay on the court), and Brandon Bass (all 10 and 5 from him...) as key pieces i their argument for other teams

lets face it people... you have no problem creating a double standard all long as it serves your agenda.

for the record... here are the stats for you:
Miami (Big Z, Anthony, Haslem, Bosh, James, and Jones)- 63.7 points, 30.4 rebounds, 4 blocks
Lakers (Gasol, Odom, Artest, Barnes, Ratliff)- 58.4 points, 34.2 rebounds, 3.3 blocks
Magic (Dwight, Lewis, Bass, Gortat, Anderson, Richardson)- 59.5 points, 35.6 rebounds, 5.1 blocks
Bulls (Deng, Noah, Gibson, Asik, Scal)- 56.9 points, 29.6 rebounds, 5.8 blocks

Your argument is severely flawed since you listed Jones for Miami. He is predominantly playing a guard role when on the floor with Lebron and Wade. So using all of his scoring and production is extremely foolish and misleading

If you are going to include any portion of his scoring to the front court, then you should also add in a portion of the output from Kobe playing SF in LA, Pietrius/Carter getting SF minutes in Orlando, and Korver/Brewer for stretches in Chicago.

So try again without finding a way to skew the numbers. :eyebrow:

I did not include any guards or guard-forwards in the comparison...only players listed as forwards or centers...

next time, instead of assuming I am skewing the numbers... take some time and do the research yourself...

and FYI... James Jones is the primary backup to Lebron James... :up:

FYI, Jones has spent more time at SG than SF this year (82games.com)

So try again because you were dead wrong about not including any guard-forwards in your post, and as a result of you being wrong you entire argument holds less weight.

I never said he hasnt played guard... I said he is Lebron's primary backup...which is true...

when the heat is healthy...James Jones is a forward... he is playing some guard right now b/c of Millers injury...but he is a SF...

also...like I said... I based it only on the official position listings on nba.com

It really is. Even though Bosh it taking the longest to adjust to this new situation....you can't deny a frontcourt that has the best player in basketball, Lebron.

If you guys want to list your most balanced frontcourts, go ahead. But any team with a superstar frontcourt player-> Dwight, Pau, Lebron, etc., should be propelled pretty high in the rankings based on that 1 player's greatness IMO.

i definitely agree with this post.
once boozers comes back we have a rebounding machine team, Noah is a dub dub monster, boozer is also capable of avg a dub dub and taj rebounds well too.

deng is also a underrated player. he can also rebound.

I liked what I have seen from Fasenko this year. They will have a 4 big rotation with Memo likely getting PF time since his injury isn't one players just bounce back from.

Bosh has never been a good defensive player. And maybe he never will be. He's a pretty good rebounder though. To base something off such a small amount of games.

The problem with the nba forum is people don't use intelligence they base everything off of small samples with nothing but garbage stats Joe Morgan would even think suck.

So what sample size of the HEAT are you basing your "intelligent" conclusions on? I mean other than the 10 games they have played together...or individual stats of Bosh while he was on a terrible team. A tad hypocritical if you ask me. Also, as I stated before, in basketball you need to be effective on offense and defense. But hey, with your "expectations" of what Bosh will do...thats much more insightful than our "small amount of games" in which we have based an opinion. I am envious of your obvious intelligence.

I think the bulls, when boozer comes back, have those guys beat.

Yeah? How? Dirk is better than Boozer... The depth in the SF and C position clearly favors the Mavs as well...

Bulls would have rebounding, defense and post scoring in the paint. Mavs don't have post scoring in the paint.

So far...

1. Lamar Odom & Pau Gasol
2. Paul Millsap & Al Jefferson
3. David West & Emeka Okafor
4. LaMarcus Aldridge & Marcus Camby
5. Dirk Nowitzki & Tyson Chandler

EDIT: I'm just going on how the starting frontcourts have performed so far.

+1 (so far this season)

Ok, I have to agree with you about post scoring coz Boozer is better at scoring in the paint than Dirk but scoring in general, I would have to go with Dirk... In terms of rebounding I would have to say it is pretty much the same... Defensively, I would go with my Mavs... I am sure you're going to say Dirk doesn't play any defense but Boozer doesn't play any D as well... Plus, Dirk can actually play some decent team defense... Then Marion, Butler, Haywood and Chandler are better than the rest of the Bulls frontcourt...

1a. Boston (PP, Marquis, KG, Baby, Shaq, JO, Perk) Unreal rotation
1b. Lakers (Artest, Barnes, Walton, Gasol, Odom, Bynum, Theo) Unreal rotation



3. Jazz (AK, Milsap, Okur, Big Al) Maybe the best collection of post scorers (LA???)
4. Bulls (Noah, Booz, Taj, Deng) Great rebounding, Good defense, Good post scoring.



5. Orl/Dal cant decide

As far as Miami, they are for sure top 5 defensively but their interior D hd been an aboslute liability and I refuse to put the on this list as a unit. Their front court is so far way more style than substance.

Personally I think when we say frontcourt I think of post scoring. While the Mavs can score in the frontcourt, they lack the scoring in the paint.

LMAO at the double standard on here... people don't put Miami on the list b/c Bosh is having a slow start (15 and 6)... but they do include guy like Andrew Bynum (hasnt played), Yao Ming (averaging 10 and 5 and cant stay on the court), and Brandon Bass (all 10 and 5 from him...) as key pieces i their argument for other teams

lets face it people... you have no problem creating a double standard all long as it serves your agenda.

for the record... here are the stats for you:
Miami (Big Z, Anthony, Haslem, Bosh, James, and Jones)- 63.7 points, 30.4 rebounds, 4 blocks
Lakers (Gasol, Odom, Artest, Barnes, Ratliff)- 58.4 points, 34.2 rebounds, 3.3 blocks
Magic (Dwight, Lewis, Bass, Gortat, Anderson, Richardson)- 59.5 points, 35.6 rebounds, 5.1 blocks
Bulls (Deng, Noah, Gibson, Asik, Scal)- 56.9 points, 29.6 rebounds, 5.8 blocks

Celtics(Pierce, KG, Shaq, J. Oneal, Big Baby, Semih Erden) 67.1 points, 32.3 rebounds, 3.3 blocks, 53.25 fg%

Offensively and Defensively, Talent and skill-wise, the LA Lakers. No bias whatsoever.

AB17, PAU, LO, RonRon & Barnes.

Boston is pretty stacked

SHaq, JO, Perk, KG, BigBaby. Pierce

Houston

Yao, Scola and Battier

Dallas

TY Chandler, BHaywood, Dirk & Marion

Chicago

Noah, Booze, Deng

Oh, and how can i forget the Heat. My bad. Their frontline is sick

BIG z, Jamal Marloire, Juan Howard, Joel Anthony, Udonis Haslem, LBJ and that other diva who used to be a raptor.

Well, if that's the case, I won't argue with you... I am no homer to disregard Boozer's post up skills... :D
