@nba_debate16 ‘s Top 10 Power Forwards Of All Time!
#4: Dirk Nowitzki: First off let me establish the fact that he is interchangeable with Kevin Garnett and he’s even interchangeable with Charles Barkley! Dirk is one of the best scorers in NBA history, and he was deadly from everywhere, especially the perimeter with his phenomenal 3pt and midrange shot and unguardable fadeaway. However where Dirk lacks is defensively. He was never an elite defender which separates him from the top 3 power forwards who were great on both ends of the floor.
#3: Kevin Garnett: Arguably the most intense and competitive player in NBA history. KG is amongst the top of my list for players I respect and it’s because KG ALWAYS played with heart, intensity and was always a competitor. He would yell in your face, throw elbows, curse you out, stare you down, intimidate you, he’d do everything he could to win, and that puts him above Dirk for me. His mentality and mental toughness was on another level which led him to be a phenomenal all around player both offensively and especially defensively. Another thing to note is KG was always a mismatch being a tall athletic guard like Forward. He had a midrange shot and if you contested he was athletic enough to get by the other big men of the league. He was also a phenomenal rebounder and passer, and defensively, well there’s not much to say other than he was an animal. All in all, him and Dirk are on the same level imo, and are most definitely interchangeable amongst the 3,4 and 5 spots. Arguably the 2 spot as well.
Do you agree with my list? Let me know below in the comments!
