Mikey is a person who loves to talk about sports including basketball and his favorite team is the San Antonio Spurs.

Ranking NBA Power Forwards

These are my ranking on this position, comment below your opinions!

Tier One

Giannis Antetokounmpo- Milwaukee Bucks

The reigning MVP takes the place as the best Power Forward in the league, and his upside is ginormous. At only 24 years old, he hasn't even entered his prime yet and looks to get the Bucks into the finals. His comparison right now is a modern day Shaq...wow!

An explosive player on both sides of the court, he really can do anything for his team and his a great locker room presence.

Blake Griffin- Detroit Pistons

Some might put Blake tier two, but he had the best year of his career in the 2018-2019 season. Griffin was surprisingly mostly healthy, and has been shooting the 3 ball way better than his Clipper days.

Just entering his prime, Griffin looks to pair with Derrick Rose and Andre Drummond and do some damage in a wide open Eastern Conference.

Giannis' Unreal Hangtime

Tier Two

LaMarcus Aldridge- San Antonio Spurs

Aldridge is still putting up all star numbers at the old age of 33, which not many people in this league have done. With him about to turn 34 in a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see if he maintains this level.

Even at his old age, I still highly do think that he is still underrated, with people saying Pascal Siakam is better than him, which is false.

Draymond Green- Golden State Warriors

Draymond did not have the greatest season, but when it came playoff time, he shifted into overdrive. He can read any defense, and knows how to counter them. He is also not the greatest scorer, but his defense, play making, and championship experience make up for that.

It will be interesting to see if the Warriors offer Green a max contract come the next off season, but we will see.

Tobias Harris- Philadelphia 76ers

Before the season, many people would probably place Harris tier three, but that has changed drastically. In the first half of the season where he led the offense on the Clippers, he averaged around 23 points per game. After being traded to the 76ers, he only regressed a bit and still averaged 20 points a night.

Not surprised when the 76ers offered him a 5 year, 180 million contract to stay. Entering his prime soon, the sky is the limit for Harris.

Kristaps Porzingis- Dallas Mavericks

If Kristaps is healthy, tier two, but I'm not quite sure if he will be the same player that he was. At 7'3", a guy who can shoot the ball from anywhere on the court and be a post scorer, that is deadly.

Aldridge's Career High!

Tier Three

Pascal Siakam- Toronto Raptors

Many people did not know about Siakam and the start of the season, but that quickly changed. After being considered an all star but not getting the nod, he was instrumental in getting the Raptors to be NBA Champions.

If Kawhi Leonard doesn't resign, Siakam's numbers could go up as a first option on this Raptors team.

John Collins- Atlanta Hawks

John Collins took a huge leap in his game this year, averaging 20 and 10 with the addition of Trae Young. Now, after getting Cam Reddish and DeAndre Hunter in the draft, the Hawks look to feed the ball to Collins' a lot more.

Lauri Markkanen- Chicago Bulls

In an impressive second year in the league, Markkanen has shown that he is the real deal and can lead the Bulls to the playoffs in the near future. If he puts in the work in the off season, I do feel he can put up monster numbers and become a tier two type of player.

Kevin Love- Cleveland Cavaliers

Love wasn't that healthy this season for a struggling Cavaliers team, and has regressed quite a bit. While he is still a top 10 Power Forward, he is not how he was with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

Paul Millsap- Denver Nuggets

When Millsap joined the Nuggets. they expected him to be an all star player. While he has not lived up to the expectations, he has still be a consistent buy to mentor the young guys, especially Nikola Jokic.

Kyle Kuzma- Los Angeles Lakers

Kuzma put up solid numbers, but while he is a great player I do not see him being a Siakam or Markkanen level player in the future. He will be a good option along with LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Markkanen's Career High

Tier Four

Jaren Jackson Jr.- Memphis Grizzlies

Jackson Jr. is a good young stretch four who can shoot the 3 ball consistently. Questions do arise about his health, but if he is healthy he could be a good player in the league.

Derrick Favors- New Orleans Pelicans

Favors put up 11 and 7 on the Jazz last season, but had to unload him to the Pelicans due to his awful contract. After being picked 3rd overall, he's not really a bust, but should have been an all star player.

TJ Warren- Indiana Pacers

Warren did pretty good on the Suns last year, but traded him to the Pacers a couple weeks ago to clear cap space. Solid player to have on your team, and good locker room presence.

Marcus Morris Sr.- Boston Celtics

Morris actually did surprisingly well this season, and looks to be paid in the near future. Again, he a good attitude and keep the locker room together. Way way better then his brother at this point in time.

PJ Tucker- Houston Rockets

Tucker's value is perfect for the Rockets, as they basically have all three point shooter on there roster. Not much else for Tucker as he can also rebound pretty good. Plus, he complements James Harden will by not being impulsive with asking for the ball.

Thaddeus Young- Chicago Bulls

Young recently just signed with the Bulls and looks to be a solid backup to Lauri.Don't really know much about Young, besides he was on the Pacers.

Tier five is not worth talking about with guys like Marvin Williams, and Dario Saric.

Jackson Jr,'s Career High
