What should an NBA power forward be judged by - his post scoring, shooting range, or value to his team and the game of basketball? The following list of my best five power forwards in the league right now will dissipate some of these doubts.

Blake Griffin (28)

The Los Angeles Clippers have decided to move on from him and the Detroit Pistons have struggled with him, but Blake Griffin has proved in many moments of the season that, when healthy, he continues to be a max player. Blake continues to score over 20 points and grab over seven rebounds per game, but he has slightly upped his assist numbers as he has become more of a playmaker for his team.

He has become more unpredictable than ever in the eyes of his defenders. With Chris Paul out of the picture, Griffin has been able to show that he can act as a point-forward and lead his team. He also continues to be very agile and quick on his feet around the post and has now developed into a decent jump shooter. But Blake Griffin still needs to improve on his defense and ability to make his teammates better and prove that he can stay regularly healthy.

Draymond Green (27)

How can a player average 11 Points Per Game and be an All-Star? That is Draymond Green, the heart, and soul of his two-time champion Golden State Warriors. He does not need to score because he does everything else one can do on a basketball court.

He will rebound the ball like the biggest of men, make assists like the best of guards, and steal and block the ball like the best of defenders. Well, he is the current Defensive Player of the Year. But Green is not only about filling up the stat sheet. He is the vocal and emotional leader of the Warriors. Without Kevin Durant, the Warriors have won a championship.

Without Steph Curry, they are proving to be a championship-caliber team as well. But take Green out of the team and the Warriors have trouble being aggressive and wilful on defense and offense. One could say that Draymond Green is the most important piece in the well-oiled machine that is the Warriors.

Porzingis (22)

Unicorns exist!

Well, there is one in New York. Kristaps Porzingis has arrived, and he is here to stay. Before his season-ending injury, Porzingis was averaging over 22 points per game and making these Knicks relevant again. With Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson out of the picture, Porzingis has been able to play with more liberty than ever and showcase the unique talents of a seven-footer. He is more comfortable than ever shooting the ball and driving to the basket with assertiveness. Many people would choose to start their teams with such a player of Porzingis's size and talent. If he can learn to pass the ball off double-teams and make his teammates better, then he will take his game to a different level.

And if Porzingis can stay healthy, then rivals will have a problem dealing with him for years to come.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (23)

The Greek Freak is officially a force to reckon with in the NBA. Giannis Antetokounmpo is basically unstoppable. He moves like a guard and scores like an experienced big man. He might not have a solid three-point shot right now, but he does not need it as he is able to get by slower defenders with ease and score at will in the mid-range and painted area.

Giannis averaged almost 27 points per game this season while shooting over 50 percent from the field. In addition, the ball is in hands for the most part. He is the acting point-forward and whom most plays run through.

Thus, Giannis has developed into a high-IQ player and great passer once he draws rivals. He averages around five assists per game. Furthermore, he is also a freak on the other end of the floor. His wingspan allows him to grab around 10 rebounds and get close to two steals per game. He is everywhere on defense. An MVP could soon be his, but first, he will need to learn to make the Milwaukee Bucks a serious contender in the East. Remember his name ... if you can.

Anthony Davis (25)

Anthony Davis is the best power forward in the NBA today. The Brow has become a legitimate MVP candidate this season after a phenomenal regular season. Following DeMarcus Cousins's Achilles injury, Davis stepped up his game and lifted his team on his back more than ever.

Against all odds, he led the New Orleans Pelicans to the playoffs and has upset the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round.

Davis is a young, generational player talent who is ready to take over the NBA. The electric power forward can score in any way possible. In the post, he is too agile to be stopped by the bigger defenders, and his solid jump shot enables him to shoot and score over anyone in the mid/long-range. After all, Davis was a guard for most of his life. He definitely shoots like one. And his effort on defense is evident as he gets over two blocks per game and continuously grabs over 10 rebounds. Davis dominates both ends of the floor. Can the Pelicans finally build a championship team around him or will Anthony Davis need to chase a ring elsewhere?
