View Full Version : Pacers Digest Vote: #13 Small Forward

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
#12 Peja Stojakovic

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
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

How about Nocioni? A true warrior and great defender.

Playoff stats:
Nocioni
22.3 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 10 threes on .476 3pt%, .560 FG%, .857 FT%.

Deng
10.2 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 1 three on .200 3pt%, .421 FG%, .571 FT%.

Battier
6.0 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 2 threes on .286 3pt%, .500 FG%, .333 FT%

Wallace?
Ooh...didn't make the playoffs...
What people neglect to mention is his horrid FT% and the fact that Wallace really can't shoot. Or that for all his terrific defending, there are easily five guys remaining on this list ahead of him one-on-on defensively. And in reality, who couldn't put up huge numbers on the Bobcats? Look at what Jumaine Jones did when Wallace went down. Or what Bernard Robinson did when Jones went down. No thanks. I'll take Nocioni's 20+ PPG against the world champs on a Chicago roster filled with talented players.

I'll take Nocioni any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Wow, I guess there are only a handful of Gerald Wallace supporters on this forum... maybe people just don't know who he is...

Gerald Wallace is the man...screw Nocioni...I like how you chose his playoff stats instead of his regular season stats...nice technique - pick and choose stats that fit ur argument...you must be a master debater

Can't say I saw many Bobcats games this year...Stats are legit though.

Can he shoot? His % is sick though. 54% is no joke. Is it all slashing in the paint stuff? Or does he have a J?

I know he plays D, can't say I've ever noticed him do much offensively. Stats say otherwise though.

I like to go with the most recent and most important stats...and I like guys who step up their game in the playoffs. Especially against the future World Champs.

I went with Granger, cause I wouldn't trade him for any of these other dudes.

And I probably wouldn't trade Livingstone for Iverson at this point...doesn't mean Shaun's a better player than AI.

im not trying to start a fight...i just think its unfair that the guy isn't on a good team and didn't have a chance at the champs

Hehe, neither am I...just debating for the sake of debating...

That's probably legit though...and when he was on Sac he wasn't given a real chance.

Ron who?
