Small Forward

Warriors: Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes

Heat: LeBron James, Shane Battier, Michael Beasley

This position really isn’t up for much of a discussion.  LeBron is the best player in the league and, although Andre Iguodala is a great player, nobody comes close to his skill level.

Analysts try to find flaws in LeBron’s game, but there really isn’t much to find.  It seems like LeBron tackles one of his weaknesses every season.

Iguodala is a little bit of a “lite” version of LeBron; he can do everything at an above average level.  But Iguodala is not LeBron.  LeBron is an a league of his own.

Harrison Barnes had a promising year as a rookie, but, again, he is not LeBron.  This comparison is just not fair for any player in the league.  Comparing LeBron to a player going into his second year is an insult to LeBron.

    “Ray Allen has made more three pointers than anyone else in the history of the NBA.” Stephen Curry broke that record last year! How are you going to write an article about the warriors and forget that he broke the record last season?

      Stephen Curry broke the *single season* record. Ray Allen still holds the lifetime record with 2857. Curry has 644 currently.
