Love is arguably the best power forward in the league, Pekovic is as good as any in the NBA on any given night, and Kirilenko is having a great season.

Memphis' is better. AK is playing amazingly well, and Pek is very nice, but all 3 of the Grizzlies can carry a team for stretches. Minny's may be better defensively, even with Love.

I was hoping Wallace/Teletovic/Lopez would be on this list, but Mirza remains buried deep on the bench. I don't understand it.

Deng/Boozer/Noah is very close to AK/Love/Pek

Lebron/Bosh/pick a third guy off the roster is also quite formidable.

When the Jazz go big, Millsap/Favors/Big Al is also pretty scary.

Memphis is better at each position.

Lakers, Grizzlies, Knicks and Heat are better. It doesn't even matter who you're counting as the Heat's 3rd player.

Not like I care about this argument, but hasn't Ron Artest been the Lakers best frontcourt player to this point in the season? Are we going by actual play or how good people are supposed to be?

Kevin Love is shooting .358/.233/.689 this year and has made more than half of his FGA exactly once all year.

Hey pal, this isn't a thread based on facts here. This is a speculative thread where we go with our guts.

That said, the bulls are better with deng, Noah and boozer. The Mavs are better with dirk, Marion and kaman. Clippers are better with Jordan, Griffin, and butler

I don't know. Was odom better than Bynum and Kobe in the 2011 playoffs? Is harden better than Kobe?

You have a weird way of evaluating players, so I have a hard time answering that.

eh Jamel never rated anything except what other posters said. How does his opinion matter when he does not have the guts to express it?

Durant/Ibaka/Perkins or Collison is pretty good too.

All that this thread has proven is that Phoenix had a terrible front court.

Jamel really does need to work on being more outspoken.

Odom was the Lakers 3rd best player in the 11 playoffs behind Bynum and Kobe.

Kobe is better than James Harden.

Both opinions I already expressed, but maybe you Diabled out of threads when I did.

Metta is playing real well and is the Lakers second most consistent player, but he is benefitting from open 3's and single coverage post up attempts and penetration. His d continues to be outstanding, but Dwight has been the best frontcourt player overall.

Chris Paul won't have as good of a career as Kobe!

Is that a start?

This is an excerpt from page 214 in my new book: "What Only Fans See"

Is this to me or to OP?
To you. I just meant that no one was even mentioning Phoenix... so all you saw was the absence of Phoenix.
