Today’s NBA is truly replete with difference-makers at the power forward position, with tons of big men who can dominate the game in a variety of ways.
There’s classic big men like LaMarcus Aldridge and Zach Randolph, who operate from the blocks, scoring and rebounding efficiently. There are some guys like Kevin Love and Dirk Nowitzki who can drain it from three, bringing a different dimension to the position. And there are some, like Blake Griffin and Kenneth Faried, who can make game-changing plays above the rim.
Before starting, I want to briefly mention some of the players you won’t be seeing on this list: Serge Ibaka, Carlos Boozer, Josh Smith, and difficult-to-classify players like Al Horford, Tim Duncan, and LeBron James.
