While many would argue that center is one of the dying positions in the NBA, on the other hand, power forwards are thriving as they’ve been brought up on a steady diet of 18 footers and double doubles.

Some of the players on this list are currently free agents or have recently signed monster contracts via the free agency process. There aren’t many young guys on this list, as the power forward is a fairly established position in the league, and everyone on the list is already past their rookie contract.

Let’s take a look at the best PF’s in the NBA today:

    This list is laughable. Blake Griffin 6 spots ABOVE Tim Duncan. If you could have any one of these players for the 2013-14 season you would take Lee, Griffin, Smith and Randolph over Duncan and Gasol, heck Bosh too? Did you watch Randolph is the Spurs series? I seriously have to question how you have a job writing about the NBA.

    Just with Tim Duncan NOT being in the # 1or 2 spot makes this list hilariously laughable. The only other power forward better than Timmy MIGHT be Kevin Love.

    Where’s LaBron?

    Anthony Davis will be on this list by the end of the season

    At least Aldridge has led his team to the playoffs before. Why do people say the LMA can’t be the #1 Power Forward in the NBA because it’s been maybe 2 years straight that the Blazers haven’t made the playoffs. I mean Kevin Love has never made it to the playoffs. at least Aldridge plays defense and keeps his team for the most part in the hunt for the playoffs.
