Amare Stoudemire is counted as a PF.. So is Al Jefferson

Tyreke Evans is a SG

Here's how I rank them

1. PG
2. SF
3. PF
4. SG
5. C


I think 3 and 4 could go either way but with Shaq and Yao retiring that makes Center the weakest (By looking at the future mock drafts that won't be for long). 1 and 2 are so obvious

I'm pretty sure Amare and Jefferson are the biggest guys on the floor for their respective teams, the majority of the time.

The PF is stronger than the PG position. The PG position just has the most youth and depth but in terms of strength the PF takes it. In 2 or so years that is figured to change however. Do any top 50 rankings and I'd bet you'd get about 15+ PFs and maybe 10+ PGs. PFs got it.

PG: a ton of stars, and a ton of depth. I have to have them at #1
PF: I tried to convince myself to put the SFs ahead of them, but there's too much depth. There's a good 16-17 really, really good PFs in the league today...especially with the emergence of the young guys.
SF: LeBron, Durant, Melo and Pierce make for a top heavy group, but there's a decent amount of depth.
SG: More depth than the SFs, but not as much star power. It's really close, but Kobe isn't quite the Kobe of old, and that nocks them down.
C: definitely the weakest. I don't think it's as horrendously weak as a lot feel, but there's no doubt that it is the thinnest position by a wide margin. One star (maybe 2 if Duncan still counts...which I do think he does), very little depth.

As atrocious as the Slam Online (http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/slamonline-top-50/2011/10/top-50-dwight-howard-no-6/)list they have David West ranked 15th at his position but yet still he's not only cracked the top 50 but he's at #46. Brandon Jennings the 11th Rank PG is the lowest ranked in the top 50 and I think we all know Jennings is in no way deserving of being called a top 50 player.

Hell lets look at the SI's (http://nba-point-forward.si.com/2011/08/16/top-100-nba-players-nos-1-10/) list. They have 14 listed PFs ranked in the top 50 while just having 8 PGs.

In ESPN's (http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/7064442/#nbarank-players-rankings-chart) top 50 they have 12 PFs in their top 50 while having 10 PGs.

I'd be willing to bet also that if any of you guys do your top 50 you'd have more PFs than PGs. In many of these lists natural PFs like TD, Horford and Al Jeff aren't considered PFs (though Josh Smith who's naturally a SF is), either way the PF position is quite strong.

1. PG- Tons of depth
2. PF- Mixture of young and older stars in this position
3. SG- I like the depth here
4. SF- Not great outside of Lebron, Durant, Melo, and Peirce
5. C- Pretty weak other than Howard
