1. Tim Duncan

2012-2013 per-game statistics: 17.8 points, 9.9 rebounds, 2.7 blocks, 24.45 PER

I guess that whole getting old thing isn’t happening for Tim Duncan. He is still the best Power Forward in the NBA and it really isn’t close. He is still the best defender on this list, and averaged 2.7 blocks per game last season, which was his highest total since the 2004-05 season. He also added 17.8 points per game, so the offense is still there for the veteran. Very few expected the San Antonio Spurs to advance to the NBA Finals but Duncan led them there. At 37 years old, Duncan still reserves the right to be the best Power Forward in the NBA.
