This is going to be a bit of a rant. But I think about this stuff all the time. I'd like to put my opinions out there, and in return, hear the board's as well. C: The most important things at this position, to me, are: #1) Great low-post defender. Someone who challenges, alters and blocks a lot of shots. A true intimidator. #2) Great rebounder. Someone who boxes out like it's a religion to secure defensive rebounds; and also someone who's able to steal some offensive rebounds as well. #3) Great pick-and-roll player. Someone who can finish alley-oops, who can convert close shots, and who can hit some mid-range shots as well. If you've got someone with a reliable back to the basket game, or who can put the ball on the floor a little bit - - even better. Best in-league example: D. Howard. PF/SF/SG: At these three positions, I essentially want the same thing. #1) All three have to be great outside shooters, stretching out the court. #2) All three must have the size, strength and athleticism to guard their positions in the league. Best in-league examples: PF: L. James. SF: K. Durant. SG: J. Harden. PG: I want a guy here, of course, who's able to guard his position. But more importantly, this guy needs to be a serious penetrator and distributor. Someone who really takes care of the ball well and doesn't waste positions. Someone who sees the game well and knows where to go with the ball. Someone who really excels in a pick-and-roll role. Best in-league example: PG: C. Paul.
