The Top TenXW

1Lebron JamesLeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

Lbjtk is the best small forward and the 3rd best basketball player of all time in the world to a lot of people and he is because jordan and wilt is better than him by a little bit but is better then larry bird ok every stat ok lebron is my favorite basketball player go lbj and he will be the best basketball player in 2-5 years I bet and have 30, 000 points or more ok!

Larry was a power not a small. Back to back 60 win seasons without another allstar on the team. He had to play great so that the cavs could win 120 games and great for each and every win. Then back to back mvps.

What the king all the way larry bird is not even a small he is a power best scorer and best passer on this list and he is the youngest on this list he is going to get that ring to be one of the greatest or the greatest.

He is better than larry bird in every way. People just don't want to admit it

2Larry BirdLarry Joe Bird is an American retired professional basketball player who played for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association.

The hardest working player of all time. The most clutch player... EVER! Even better then M.J. he once told Xavier McDaniel where he was going to take the last second shot from before hand and it still didn't matter... Larry hit it in his face anyways. One word " LEGEND "

needs more highlight clips played on tv. he did some amazing plays in his career

Larry Bird is not only the best small forward of all time but also the best overall player of all time! Guy was amazing!

The goat larry bird

3Julius Erving

Dr. j... only player ever! with 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists, 2,000 steals, 2,000 blocks!..16 years, 16 all star games, 16 playoff appearances, 16 1,000 plus points seasons, 4-time mvp, 3-rings, 2-all star mvp.. most admired, best showman, greatest in open court, greatest flyer/dunker EVER!

4Scottie PippenScottie Maurice Pippen is an American retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association.

Scottie Pippen is top 3 all time EASY. I could argue him at #1. Arguably best all-around defensive player all time, (defense wins championships). A better scorer in his prime than his career stats show. A versatile player who could run an offense similar to a point guard. Arguably the second best player in the league for years, and the ALl-Star MVP in Jordan's absence. Chuck Daily said Scottie was the second best player on the original Dream Team. Scottie could D-UP any other player on this list.

Why is the best perimeter defender of all time number 6? Sure he wasn't a lights out scorer.. Yet he could do everything you could ever want out of the 3 spot

He is the best defensive small forward - 2storm

6Kevin DurantKevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association.

Kevin Durant should be a bit higher than Pippen because Pippen was mainly a defensive Small Forward but can still score but Durant can do anything basically he is a good defender, a good shooter and Durant is only young and still has a lot more to do and is mainly in his prime if not a 5 probably a 6 because Durant is way better than Pierce

Kevin Durant is only on his 5th season and he's leading the NBA in scoring. He is still young and still has so many years ahead of him. Hands down he is simply a scoring machiene. You can put anyone on hi anf no one can stop him. He also is extremly versatle. Think about it he's a 6 10 SF but dribbles as great as a PG. The funny ting is we haven't seen have of what he's going to do. So if you see Lebron as king sory, because the Durantula taking his place on the throne!

7Paul PiercePaul Anthony Pierce is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.

Everyone shouts Paul Pierce even the other teams fans

Just look at his numbers and big games

He is for me the celtics player ever

8Elgin Baylor

Unfortunately, Elgin played in the days before every game was taped and then replayed endlessly. Elgin was the original prototype for today's small forward.
He also had the highest season scoring average in the history of the NBA of anyone not named Wilt Chamberlain.
Yes, that is correct, his best season average is higher than MJ's best, but Elgin did it in 1962, the same year Wilt averaged over 50.
Nobody ever checks to see who came in "second" in scoring average.

9Carmelo AnthonyCarmelo Kyam Anthony is an American professional basketball player for the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association.

Greatest one on one scorer of all time

12Tracy McCgrady

This dude was seriously close to being the best there ever was. before his body started deteriorating in his prime he was the most versatile player to ever play the game, there was literally nothing this man couldn't do. but he'll just have to settle for the best that never was, and a good to fair chance of making it into the hall of fame eventually.

13John HavlicekJohn Joseph "Hondo" Havlicek is a retired American professional basketball player who competed for 16 seasons with the Boston Celtics, winning eight NBA championships, four of them coming in his first four seasons.
14James Worthy

16Andre IguodalaAndre Tyler Iguodala is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.
17Draymond Green

Lockdown defender with hustle and great passing ability. There's a reason he's the mini magic

This Dude Ain't Even a Small Forward!
