2010-2011 Top 10 Fantasy Ballers Power Forwards (10-6)
This position will be fruitful for years to come especially with the rise of Blake Griffin and Paul Millsap. Long time underrated guys such as David West are no longer on the top 10, but they remain very useful if you come by one. Long time stalwart and future Hall of Famer, Tim Duncan, is no longer on the top 10 either. The time has arrived. It’s sad to see him go. The present and future are still bright for power forward aficionados. Stats are up to date as of December 2, 2010.
10. Kevin Garnett 15.5 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.6 steals, EFF +20.7
Garnett is barely holding on to the tenth spot. I do not think he can hang on for long as the season progresses. He’ll be too busy talking trash and calling hairless people “cancer patients.” Or he can continue dropping F bombs all over the court. Either way KG does the damn thing. Look to trade for an upgrade as soon as possible. I’m serious.
9. Zach Randolph 21.1 points, 11.6 rebounds, 1.9 assists, EFF +21.1
Here is the big man version of Family Matters’ Darius McCrary who is known as Eddie Winslow. I actually bumped into Darius McCrary back in 2005 at a college. He was taking a tour of the school. I’m not sure if he ever attended though. Randolph consistently puts up double doubles. The turnoff is the lack of defensive stats, but he is as solid as they come. Zach is a keeper for now.
8. Luis Scola 20.2 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists, EFF +21.3
A lot of people gave up on him during his rookie year. He has improved tremendously since. His growth can also be contributed to the lack of Yao Ming. Fantasy owners who drafted him late should be very satisfied with the production. He does resemble Russell Brand although you do not need to get him to the Greek. Scola can get there by himself.
7. Josh Smith 15.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 4 assists, 1.5 steals, 2.42 blks, EFF +22.3
The high flying shot blocking power forward playing for the Hawks is more valuable than teammate Al Horford in context of stats. Smith does more and fulfills more categories. There is nothing much to say about Josh except for the fact that he will throw up an occasional air ball or dribble and then do something stupid.
6. Lamar Odom 15.3 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists, EFF +23.2
Mister Glass Andrew Bynum helps out Lamar Odom a lot. Odom should consider buying him a Rolex watch or throw bags of candy at his head. He looks like an All Star out there. There is this one guy who thinks that Indiana’s Josh McRoberts is a lot like Lamar. I do not understand this. One is black. The other is white. They do not even have similar play styles. I’m not sure if the dude was serious. Perhaps he was drunk typing away waiting for his Kufi to get smacked off. I don’t understand really.
