This position is terrible

This position is terrible right now!!!

Do you realize the top 2 players at this position RIGHT NOW didn't even average 10 rpg? Or 9? Barely 8? Never averaged 10 in their careers? Dirk averaged 7... LMAO..... I need a drink, pass the Courvoisier, pass it *****!!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

LOL, What's with the Dirk hate over him averaging 7 RPG? He's a 33 year old that doesn't play that much in the paint. For his career he has averaged 8.4 RPG which is pretty good (not to mention 10.4 RPG during the playoffs). 8.4 RPG is 1.1 higher than Kevin McHale's career average and nobody seems to have any problem proclaiming McHale one of the 5 greatest PFs of all time. This isn't the 60's anymore, the pace of the game has slowed down and teams don't miss as many shots. You don't need to average 12+ boards per game to be considered a good rebounder. For example Dirk's career average of 8.4 would have placed him 19th in the league this year. Not too shabby at all.

No he isn't a great rebounder but that has never been his calling card. He's not a traditional PF but he is still arguably the best PF right now and that's certainly not a knock against the quality of PFs in the league. Give it two more seasons before the best and second best power forwards in the league are Blake Griffin and Kevin Love...followed by a large gap...and then the rest of the leagues PFs. You'll see your dominant rebounders then.

I don't get why so many

I don't get why so many people love Dirk but then hate on Amare. Everyone gets on Amare and says he plays no defense and doesn't rebound but no one seems to point out that Dirk doesn't excel at those two areas of the game either. Amare took a terrible team to playoff status even before Melo arrived. Honestly at the beginning of this season I thought Amare was going to be lost without Steve Nash but I was wrong. He's got a sweet mid-range jumpshot and is a great finisher.

Dirk does play good d Chris

Dirk does play good d Chris Bosh averaged 23 ppg vrs the Bulls who have one of the best defenses in the league , and then he averaged 18 vrs the Mavs .

And for those of you that are saying Serge Ibaka is underrated lets take a look at Kris Humphries stats

Humphries 10ppg 10.4rpg

Ibaka 9.9ppg 7.6rpg

And Ibaka is talked about way more then Humphries is.The only time Humphries is on T.V. is when hes with Kim Kardashion .

Did you watch the finals this year? Dirk didn'tguard Bosh... Not even 20% of the time... Dirk did increase his rebound totals for the finals though... Look understand that the PF position is becoming Soft Forward... With Pau Gasol, Amare, Dirk, and Chris Bosh being the current best in it... Dirk averaged 7 boards this year, while Amare averaged 8... I agree with CAREFUL when he said you can't be mad at Amare for his lack of D, and turn around to say Dirk is the best in the league... Makes no sense...
