Best NBA Power Forward

Ok so I am clearly bored at work today. I got to thinking as I do, and thought if you had to choose one PF, who would it be? Anyone currently playing in the NBA.

I chose PF because I think a good PF can carry a team, generally get Double-Doubles, play lotsa minutes, tough in the clutch and make high FG% and hence, may be the most important player on a team.

Hoopsters, give me your best PF and what you think is the most important position on the floor.

I would have to go with Garnett right now. Can play 3,4,5 has inside-outside moves, gets you 20-10-5 every game and will not stop until the buzzer sounds.

Chris Bosh, a young guy with a huge future .. maybe not up there yet, but in a couple of years, he will be the best power forward in the league.

easily the best PF ever is MATT BONNER on the Spurs.

He's hall of fame material

At this point, I consider Carlos Boozer the best PF in the league. Why? He is leading the Jazz past the surprising GS Warriors in the second round of the playoffs. He averaged 11.7 rpg in the 06-07 regular season and is averaging 12.2 rpg so far in the playoffs and also 24.3 points per game on 50.6% shooting. Throw in 3.3 assists per - in the playoffs, and his only real weakness is blocks per game (0.2 a game). PS I am trying to be unbiased, as I am not particularly a UTAH or Boozer fan

Charles Barkley gets my vote. Check the stats and playoff performances. Classic overachiever!

Timmy Duncan is clearly the best now. He is far better than Dirk or Garnett. Duncan is a far more dominant force than Dirk or Garnett. He has beaten the famous kobe/shaq lakers. He beat the fast pase suns. He is the only one of the three to win a championship. Garnett nor Dirk are not capable of stoping Duncan in the paint.
