Your top 5 by position - SF

Kahn's articles on top 10 PGs and SGs made for some interesting reading and discussion in an otherwise boring stretch of offseason, so despite the fact that these types of issues have been discussed before, I thought it might be interesting to see some opinions/debate on top players by position in the NBA.

Having said that, who would you list as the top 5 Small Forwards in the NBA currently? (Just to clarify, criteria should be 'best as of right now', not 'best career' or 'most upside for the future'.)

My list:
1. LeBron James
2. Shawn Marion
3. Peja Stojakovic
4. Carmelo Anthony
5. Ron Artest

Lebron James (Not really a PG, SG or SF but deserves mention as a player who plays all three roles when on the court), Shawn Marion, Ron Artest, Peja, T-Mac (more of a SF than a SG)
Honorable Mention: Richard Jefferson and Rashard Lewis (solid scorers of two types: inside and outside)

My List:

1. T-Mac (Houston started to play well after moving him to SF, he cant be stopped, improving in clutch and in defense)
2. LeBron James (no other NBA player can compete in talent/size/athletism, unstoppable on offense, but someone tell him he has to defend too)
3. Paul Pierce (underrated defensive player, tireless scorer, NBA best in the clutch)
4. Kirilenko (also a PF, bulked up after his injury, outstanding defense with great wingspan and foot speed, great offense talent, solid shot, but can he stay healthy?)
5. Vince Carter (swing player, solid jumper, amazing hoops, quite talented too, but has much difficulty staying healthy and plays little defense)

Honorable mention: Stojakovic (had a bad year, but improved after Webber got traded, may rebound this year), Rashard Lewis (matchup problem for many teams, but plays no defense), Carmello Anthony (still no defense, improved greatly playing for Karl), Ron Artest (great SF, but to crazy).

Marion is a great SF too, but he played PF last year.

You know what's funny...Bruce Bowen doesn't belong anywhere on this list, but he can lock down every guy on there.

Now if only we could get him to score 15 points a game...we might be talking All-Star

I don't know if Bruce can guard the taller SFs like Prince, AK47 and Lewis. But Bowen-Artest is a matchup I always like to see even if they don't always guard each other

Prince only avg about 10 ppg in the finals againest the Spurs. I know Bruce didn't really guard Prince but he could shut him down if he had to!!! Oh and there is a reason why Bruce didn't guard him, and it wasn't because he isn't tall enough it's because Prince is the 3rd or 4th option, and Hamilton and Billips were the ones on the perimator to stop.

1. LeBron
2. AK47
2. Artest
2. T-Mac (if he counts for SF)
5. Marion
