    Default Rank Your Current Power Forwards

    As of today, how do you rank the PFs in the NBA (TOP 7).
    Im starting this thread because some writer on ESPN mentioned Bosh is obviously a top 5 PF and im not so sure about that. Maybe in terms of a long term investment, maybe.....maybe. But lets say for this upcoming season, im not sure i'd say hes one of the top 5 PFs.


    Stat
    Dirk
    Pau
    Blake
    ZBo
    Love
    Bosh

    How does Love get ahead of Bosh? I don't see it? I think our lack of rebounding makes us value rebounding too much as Knicks fans.

    Is Jonathan Bender not a PF?
    Or does no one else see him as a top-7 PF?

    Love shoots the 3 at a decent clip. He inhales rebounds, he can score a bit inside, and he shoots the 3.

    I can ask you how it is that you have Bosh and Boozer above Aldridge....did you see the NBA from the time Roy had his double knee surgery to the end of the season?

    Aldridge lived above 20ppg, 11rpg, and he got his share of blocks and assists...shooting 50% from the field and 80% from the free throw line. What else does he have to do to get some love?

    It's the same thing with Monta Ellis man, the young guns on the west coast that put up the numbers not named Blake Griffin or Eric Gordon get shat upon like no other.

    agree. nuckles, as soon as i saw your post it dawned on me that i had completely forgotten about lamarcus. i would actually put him above bosh. i like klove slightly more because lamarcus will give you that consistent 20/10 but to me klove as the potential to get you that 30/30(as he did against us last season).
    so there you go, bosh not even top 7

    With regards to Kevin Love's rebounding you have to realize that nobody on his team averaged more than 6 rebounds a game on the season. To say that Love would be as great a rebounder elsewhere...well, it's tough to say that. He's still a decent rebounder, mind you, but he wouldn't have grabbed 15 boards a game with STAT and Carmelo next to him instead of Beasley and Darko.

    with regards to Amare you have to realize that he only averages 25 ppg because of D'Antoni's fast paced no-defence system. Put him on a team like Bobcats and he would average 20 pts...at best.

    rebounding is so much about effort. fair point that if he had melo next to him, he wouldnt get that many rebounds but you kno what, the rebs he doesnt get would still go to our team because melo is above avg rebounder and so is fields. point being, we bitch at amare for not getting rebs because the rebs hes not getting are going to other team. if love's (hypothetically speaking is on our team) rebs go down, its not because the other team out hustled him. its cuz someone else on our team got it, so in the end we're still benefiting.
