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
#10 Rashard Lewis
#11 Josh Howard

Today's nominees* for best small forward remaining are

Shane Battier
Bruce Bowen
Luol Deng
Mike Dunleavy
Grant Hill
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

Bruce Bowen. He is one of the most underrated players in basketball. He is one of the best defensive players in the league, and spreads the floor for the Spurs on the offensive end. He is a workhorse, and the only player on this list to have contributed to winning a NBA title.

Peja. He can help a team the most, and he's great at what he does.

Yes. He also specializes in choking. It's sad that there's no one left better than this man, but that's how it is.

What is your problem with Butler? Why do you fail to see his ability?

I don't have a problem with him. You just keep getting mad because there are just so many people better than him.

And officially not answering you - Peja is not better than Butler, not even close.

Caron Butler > Peja

:devil:
That's really tough. Caron really steps up his game and if we based this off of six games in the 2006 NBA playoffs Caron would win in a land-slide.

Then again, if we based this off of regular season and such, Peja would win in a land-slide.

Butler didn't even start all year. If he would have started 70+ games he would have had even better stats. And he is sooo much better than Peja on D.

Interesting if it were Danger vs. Peja.
GW is a statistical beast though.

Luol is better than both of them. Kid is a MONSTER.

14 ppg and 7 rpg taking 12 shots a game. Defends the perimeter or the block.

21 years old...May already be the best player on that team.

He's a solid player, part of his problem is he plays for the Bobcats, and has had a recent rash of injuries though. He' ll have a better year this season.
