When evaluating Power Forwards, I look at several different things. How is their inside game on both ends of the floor? Do they play well with their back to the basket and can they defend in the paint with their size and footwork? Can they step out and play on the perimeter or can they hit midrange jumpshots? How well to they rebound the basketball and can they run the floor? Versatile players highlight our Top 10 PFs below.
