Power Forward

Warriors: David Lee, Marreese Speights, Draymond Green

Heat: Udonis Haslem, Rashard Lewis

David Lee and Udonis Haslem is another comparison that just isn’t fair.  David Lee is one of the best power forwards in the league.  Haslem is a tough player who will always fight for his team, but he does not have the skill David Lee does.

Lee is a central part to his team’s success while Haslem is merely an accessory.  Haslem had a few seasons earlier in his career where he was a more integral part of the team, but he never had the impact of a player like Lee.

David Lee is a nightmare for defenses.  He can finish with either hand, has a plethora of post moves, and has a nice jump shot for a big man.  Even though Lee is a nightmare for the Warriors’ defense, he is still a much better player than Haslem is.

    “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?

    • Dhara Taheripour

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