Ranking the All-Time Great Small Forwards

When Bernard King was he was the best player on the court.  His knees just betrayed him.  Good call, wyofan!

How 'bout Glen Rice or Dale Ellis for pure scoring ONLY?  Ellis lasted about 18 years and Rice averaged over 18 ppg for his career.  Small Forwards, it turns out, has been the most difficult to find "depth."

Havlicek is considered a small forward. I would also add Bernard King, Dominique Wilkins, and Billy Cunningham to the list of all time great small forwards.

Ranking the All-Time Great Small Forwards

Gotta mention the "Human Highlight Film." 

Still think Dirk should be on this list with his style of play, but isn't it funny how you can't really think of any great small forwards from today. 

Current maybe somedays other than Lebron James, Paul Pierce comes to mind with 23 pts & 6 rpg over his career, though.  Carmelo Anthony is a 24 & 6 guy for his career.  Shawn Marion is 18 and 10 for his 10-year career, too.  Very "quietly" Antawn Jamison is having a career year w/ 22 & 10.5.  His career has some good numbers, too, with 20 & 8 over 10 years.  These aren't shoo-ins, but a couple to look at.

Obviously it's Kyle Korver, but I'm surprised Dominique Wilkins wasn't mentioned here.
