With the NBA season nearing its halfway point, it's that time of year in which it is our job to evaluate the best and worst players at each respective starting position.
This week's edition of position power rankings will evaluate the top power forwards in the league.
In order to properly evaluate these power forwards, I have brought back the Bob Evans Player Ranking Formula that has been used in past articles.
If you are a consistent follower/reader of my work, then you are already familiar with this formula, but for those of you who are not, allow me to explain.
After selecting the top power forward from each of the NBA's 30 teams, I selected five statistical categories for the players to be rated on.
The five categories for this piece were points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks.
After selecting the categories, I complied all of the season statistics for each of the players to this point in the season, and then ranked each player on a scale of 1-30. A player receiving a score of 30 would be the best statistically at his position, and a player receiving 1 would be the worst.
After ranking each player in the categories, their total was complied, and obviously the person with the highest score is the best power forward to this point in the season.
The great thing about this system is that it takes personal bias and emotions out of the process (that's what the comment section on each slide is for).
So when you are reading, remember that this is based on the statistical performance of each player to this point in the season.
And as always, don't forget to comment so we can get the debate going!
