    Default Where does Amar'e Rank amongst PFs?

    This list is not based completely on stats as they can be misleading. A couple to bare in my are

    1. Teams that play at a faster pace inflate stats (NYK, GSW)
    2. Some on this list are much better defensively ( Garnnett, Duncan Gasol)
    3. Some teams lack rebounders while others are loaded with rebounders which skews the number of opportunities for an individual to get a rebound. (example Landry fields and Chandler grab a ton of rebounds which in turn lowers the oerall number of Rebounds Amar'e has the opprtunity to get)
    4. Random Intangibles: Toughness, Leadership, Clutch, Hustle, Will etc... cannot be measured

    My Ranking:

    1. Pau Gasol
    2. Tim Duncan/Amare Stoudemire
    4. Kevin Garnnett
    5. Dirk Nowitzki
    6. Carlos Boozer
    7. Blake Griffin
    8. David West
    9. Chris Bosh
    10. David Lee
    11. Luis Scola
    12. Zach Randolph

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Last time we had a winning record this far into the season you know who claimed to be the best PG in the league and we began to free-fall from there!


    Lets allow Stat to remain humble!

    Actually. Can't believe it. But we all forgot Kevin Love. Lol...daym.

    In retro I also think I rated David West too high, Garknee also. And still think Bosh bit too low. MIA is a clusterfck right now, and he was arguably the best PF in the game at times last year, and has been a clockwork 20+-10 big since he came into the league.

    What. K-Love. Like

    18-15-3

    With three pt range and good ft %.

    He can hustle n move, too.

    Hate to say it. But Kahhhhhn somehow backed his way into a fck of a front court. Love, Beasley, Darko. If that asshat would have traded us Rubio for Chandler and Douglas when he had chance, he could have had himself a team.

    Everybody knows im not a Garnett fan but so far hes looking very healthy this year. At the same time, im just waiting for him to injure his knee again, everybody knows it will happen at some point

    I cant believe some of you put Lee ahead of Randolph. Zbo might be off to a slow start because of injuries but hes a 20 10 guy. Hes a more versatile, skilled scorer then David Lee is and hes a better rebounder. sadly, hes probably even a little bit better on defense.

    I put Amare 4th. Offensively he might even be the best. He has improved his defense but his man to man still needs work.

    I dont think duncan plays as many minutes as the other power forwards do but hes still one of the best.

    1. Pau
    2. Amare
    3. Dirk
    4. Blake Griffin
    5. Duncan (aging)
    6. Garnett (aging)
    7. Lee (I believe Warriors are like 7-1 when Lee starts, Lee isn't as bad as you guys think. His defense is bad, but on offensive and bounding, he's elite)
    8. Bosh (always been overrated in my opinion)
    9. Scola (He's coming up. Probably toughest big man in the NBA, and his offense has been consistant)
    10. Boozer (Don't know what he'll be like after coming back from the injury)
    11. Zach Randolph (Hasn't played enough...never liked his game)
    12. West (Doesn't rebound or block enough shots for me. Chris Paul made him. He's like Joe Smith)

    Amare is better than Bosh, he is better than KG but not better than Duncan YET

    He is behind Gasol in my opinion

    I place STAT and TD at the same level for different reasons. They are both unequivocal leaders of their team I place Pau under them as he is second fiddle on the team with kobe. Without Kobe that team blows, without Pau, well they still can get it done In terms of talent, PAU is not as good as Amare offensively and not as good as TD defensively...

    so:

    1 TD
    2 STAT
    3 PAU
    4 DIRK
    5 BOSH
    6 KG
    7 GRIFFIN
    8 LOVE
    9 WEST
    10 SCOLA
    11 ZBO
    12 LEE

    I really don't consider pau a pf. He's a center and on any other team that what he would play. It only cause the lakers have bynum. But I thin he has been playing center all year

    Stat is tops right now.

    We need to show some luv to milsap though. Utah is still dominant without boozer.
