NBA's Top Small Forwards

The top small forwards in the game wasn't a real hard list to come up with. LeBron's the clear number one as he's the best basketball player in the world and well on his way to becoming the best ever. Paul Pierce gets the nod ahead of Carmelo because he just won a championship and has been consistent his whole career. Carmelo is coming on strong and when it's all said and done will be behind only LeBron. Caron and Danny are both still young and have improved every year they have been in the league.

Top 5 SF's in NBA
1. LeBron James
2. Paul Pierce
3. Carmelo Anthony
4. Caron Butler
5. Danny Granger

This list was a little harder to make. Durant is putting up crazy numbers and has more potential than anyone. Rudy Gay is solid and his best basketball is years down the road. Thaddeus Young has really been a pleasant surprise for the Sixers. I don't think anyone thought he would be this good this soon. Julian Wright will never score like the others on this list but, he brings just about everything else to the table. He can board, pass, and play lockdown D. Travis Outlaw is questionable on this list as he's older than LeBron. It's taken him awhile to get some run in Portland but, he's really proving that he's been worth the wait. He has freakish athleticism and has a reliable J.

Top 5 SF's Future
1. Kevin Durant
2. Rudy Gay
3. Thaddeus Young
4. Julian Wright
5. Travis Outlaw
