If you make a list of the Top-10 Best Small Forwards in the league this season you get something like that:
LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Paul Pierce, CARMELO ANTHONY, Lamar Odom, Rudy Gay, Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, Danny Granger and Michael Beasley.
If you make a list of the Top-10 Forwards it has to be similar to:
LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki, Amare Stoudamire, Kevin Durant, Pau Gasol, Paul Pierce, CARMELO ANTHONY, Kevin Garnett, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love (yeah, i keep out Tim Duncan)
And if you make a list of the Top-10 overall you get:
LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Amare Stoudamire, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul, Pau Gasol and Deron Williams. Right behind them there is just 3 players who could enter that list. Their names are Paul Pierce, Derrick Rose and... CARMELO ANTHONY. That's how good he is.
Paul Pierce is freaking awesome. He's gets underrated alot of times but he's not better than Melo right now. Not at 33.
If they were both the same age and I had to choose one, i'm taking PP all day.
