View Full Version : Pacers Digest Vote: #10 Small Forward

07-27-2006, 08:06 PM
The goal of this project is to determine the general consensus on Pacers Digest of who the best players are at each position in the NBA: Center, Power Forward, Small Forward, Shooting Guard, and Point Guard.

However, do not worry about the positions. I have tried to put everyone at their proper position, but what I am trying to do here is vote for the best overall player, at the position I happened to put them. The objective of each poll is to determine the best player listed, not the best pure positional player.

This thread is to vote for best remaining small forward in the NBA. You have 24 hours from the time this thread is posted to vote!

Once each position has 30 players ranked, the project will end, and a final tally will be posted in a new thread.

The top small forwards so far, as voted by Pacers Digest members, are:

#1 LeBron James
#2 Shawn Marion
#3 Tracy McGrady
#4 Ron Artest
#5 Andrei Kirilenko
#6 Carmelo Anthony
#7 Richard Jefferson
#8 Lamar Odom
#9 Tayshaun Prince

Today's nominees* for best small forward remaining are

Shane Battier
Bruce Bowen
Luol Deng
Mike Dunleavy
Grant Hill
Josh Howard
Rashard Lewis
Darius Miles
Andres Nocioni
James Posey
Bobby Simmons
Josh Smith
Peja Stojakovic
Wally Szczerbiak
Gerald Wallace

* I can't please everyone with the position I put certain guys, so the way I see it is this:

If I've made such a colossal mistake, it can easily be corrected by you, the voter. How? I will always have "Other" as an option. All you have to do is vote for it, and state for the record in a reply which player you thought deserved the vote. If the majority of people do this, then that player will still win this poll. It just takes a little more effort then two clicks of the mouse. But if you're too lazy to do that, then you have no right to whine about it later. :-p

Definitely Rashard Lewis. :nod:

I think Lewis is better than Prince.

07-27-2006, 08:57 PM
I'm on the Lewis bandwagon now

This is a slap in the face to Josh Howard. What success, other than useless stats and an All-Star selection, has Lewis ever had?

07-27-2006, 09:35 PM
Yeah, what good is an All-Star who puts up good numbers?

07-27-2006, 09:56 PM
Gerald Wallace for me still. Made history last year with 2+ steals and 2+ blocks. Gotta love it.

If Peja wouldn't have left for NO, he would have been long gone by now.

Ron who?

i feel like an idiot Rashard Lewis shoulda been in 7th place

You guys really wouldn't take Josh Howard over Rashard Lewis? A guy that can play both ways and has proven his mettle in the playoffs.

My next 6:

10. Howard
11. Lewis
12. Nocioni
13. Wallace
14. Peja
15. Deng

Josh Howard

He doesn't do the things that make you a star. He just does everything else. Poor man's Pippen in 3 years.

Lewis beating out Howard is a disgrace.
