9. Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs

Still getting it done after all these years, Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs were a tip-in away from possibly claiming another title. He still puts up solid numbers at 18 points and 10 rebounds per game, but what he means to the Spurs goes far beyond anything statistics can measure.

There’s a reason that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has said he wants to retire when Duncan retires. It’s because Duncan is the greatest power forward of all time. He’s been in the league for 16 years, and every single season the Spurs have been a championship contender, which speaks volumes to how essential he’s been to San Antonio and the league in general.

    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.
