07. Elvin Hayes. A former San Diego Rockets superstar and one of the most powerful rebounder in all time since the NBA was founded. He is one of the first true power forwards in NBA history and left a legacy showing what is the significant role of the power forward in the team.
06. Dennis Rodman. A former Chicago Bull star and a Hall of Famer and once called the “King of Rebound”. He was one of the key players of the second three-peat of the Chicago bulls in the past decade.
05.Dirk Nowitzki. One of the most hard to defend player in NBA history, standing seven foot tall, he is an offensive weapon who could fire from the distance or explodes from beneath the ring.

03. Kevin Garnett also known as “The Big Ticket” earned his greatness and fame even before he was traded to the Boston Celtics. He was one of the perfect power forwards in history for his effectiveness in offense, defense and even in handling the ball.
02. Karl Malone also known as “The Mailman”, the most complete player in all time in the power forward position. Though he has a lot of achievement in the NBA, he didn’t win any championship during his career.
01. Tim Duncan. The humblest superstar ever to walk in the floor of the NBA stardom led his team to multiple championships and won multiple MVP trophies. Karl Malone should have taken this spot but Timmy has rings and the Mailman doesn’t even have a single one.
