Ranking the Small Forwards
1. LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers
2. Shawn Marion, Phoenix Suns
3. Andrei Kirilenko, Utah Jazz
4. Richard Jefferson, New Jersey Nets
5. Ron Artest, Indiana Pacers
6. Paul Pierce, Boston Celtics
Ht./Wt. 6-6, 230
Numbers: 21.6 pts., 6.6 reb., 4.2 ast.
Despite his obviously immense talent, a lot of people are split on what Pierce's value is because of his moody, erratic play that always affects his play and his teammates. He could play at a superstar level again, but most people doubt it.
7. Peja Stojakovic, Sacramento Kings
8. Rashard Lewis, Seattle SuperSonics
9. Carmelo Anthony, Denver Nuggets
Ht./Wt.: 6-8, 225
Numbers: 20.8 pts., 5.7 reb., 2.6 ast.
The beginning of last season was a nightmare for Anthony, but when coach George Karl rescued the team from disaster, Anthony snapped out of his funk and began to perform at an All-Star level. If he continues to grow up, stardom is inevitable.
10. Lamar Odom, Los Angeles Lakers
Just food for thought.
