NBA's Top Small Forwards

Lebron James

What can I say about Lebron James? He’s the most complete player around right now.  He can dominate on offense, play any position asked, more impressive as a defender than I’ve realized, and is truly a floor general out there.  That covers it right?  He’s know got the NBA Championship marked off his list, so what more could he do?  Win another championship is what critics will say.  I think he’s a guy that I love to hate, but can’t discredit what he can do.

Paul Pierce

Another one of those guys I can’t stand in the NBA, but he’s definitely good.  He can score at will when he wants to. He’s got a good looking shot.  He goes out and gives it his all.  You know what you’ll get with Pierce, which is great.

Carmelo Anthony

And another one of those I don’t like him players.  I don’t think he’s that great, but for his position and his offensive power, it works.  I think he doesn’t look for teammates enough, but that’s another issue. If there’s a shot to take at the end, you know he’s a great option.

Kevin Durant

Finally a player I like.  Kevin Durant does things the right way.  He signed an extension with the Thunder last summer, and guess what he puts it on twitter.  No big production out of it, just a simple I’m staying in Oklahoma City.  He’s been developing that killer instinct that players need, and the great players want.  He’s a force to be reckon with at the end of a game.  You know to give him the ball and let him win the game  for you.
