Top Small Forwards

Continuing my countdown of the top players in the NBA. Today I give you the small forwards:
3. Paul Pierce, Boston Celtics
Pierce may call himself the best player in the world, the Chocolate Puma however does not. He has proven himself to be one of the most clutch players in the game and with his performance in the NBA playoffs he moved from a good player on a bad team to an elite player on a championship squad.

2. Carmelo Anthony, Denver Nuggets
I have been a fan of Melo since at the Espys a few years ago he thanked himself after winning an award. Melo is one of the most dangerous low post scorers in the league and his ever improving jumper is making him one of the most complete offensive players in the league. Granted his defense leaves much to be desired, but hey nobody is perfect.

1. LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers
Correction, if there is a perfect player his name is LeBron. He's built like a defensive lineman, runs like a track star, and there is no human comparison to his leaping ability. People call him the next Michael Jordan, a more realistic comparison would be Oscar Robertson. The only man to average a triple double for an entire season and if you told me LeBron would do it, I would believe it.
