Ranking The Top 25 Power Forwards Of All-Time

25. Horace Grant

Grant was the consummate professional, and ideal teammate for superstars. His toughness and rebounding complemented Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen with the Chicago Bulls. Grant’s veteran leadership and knowledge of the triangle offense meshed playing alongside Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant during his stint in Los Angeles with the Lakers. His four championship rings also come along with individual accolades — including one All-Star selection and four-straight years (1993-1996) with NBA All-Defensive Second Team honors.

24. Zach Randolph

Though Randolph lacked the physical traits (speed, quickness, athleticism, height) that many of his counterparts had, he’s still got to be considered a master of positioning his body on the court. Standing at 6’9” and deficient when it comes to ideal jumping ability, Z-Bo has still found a way to average 16.8 points per game through 1,057 contests. Currently closer to the end of his career, he’ll no longer be asked to play heavy minutes. With that said, Randolph will still present the Sacramento Kings with a reliable low post scoring threat.

23. Rasheed Wallace

Wallace spent much of his 16-year tenure terrorizing opponents on the block. His long wingspan and soft touch made defending his turnaround jumper nearly impossible. Also equipped with three-point range, ‘Sheed averaged just about one make per game for his career. His versatility extended to the defensive end as well. Wallace was a key cog in helping the defensive-minded Detroit Pistons upset the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2004 Finals by a score of four games to one. In addition to winning the Championship, the Pistons also halted the Lakers’ attempt at earning their fourth title in five years.
