Welcome to the dog days of the NBA calendar! Although we’re still waiting on Eric Bledsoe to (most likely) re-sign with his respective team, free agency is all but done with and the 2014 FIBA World Cup is still a few weeks away. So what can we do to pass the time between now and the beginning of a new NBA cycle? NBA Rankings, of course!
Since there are still a few minor pieces floating around from free agency, we’re going to hold off on our preseason team rankings for a little while longer. But until then, we’ll be ranking the top 10 players in the NBA at each position for the upcoming 2014-15 season. We’ve already covered the top 10 point guards, the top 10 shooting guards and the top 10 small forwards, so today we’re moving on to the power forward position.
Not only will we be factoring in everyone’s 2013-14 performance, but we’ll also be factoring in age, injury history, advanced statistics, importance to their team, the conference they play in and much more. Let’s get started.
Honorable Mentions: Zach Randolph, Greg Monroe, Kenneth Faried, Pau Gasol, Josh Smith, David West, Thaddeus Young, Ryan Anderson, Josh McRoberts, Markieff Morris, Carlos Boozer, Nene, Julius Randle and Channing Frye
