    Here is the poll to select the top Florida Power Forward. We will probably use this poll to select the #1 and #2 spots and then put up an additional poll with the remaining players to pick spots 3-5. We have added those players which were nominated from the floor.

    *indicates a nominee from the floor that did not finish in the original top 5 in voting

    If Eugene McDowell was a PF, who was the center on those early 80's teams?

    I would say Horford.

    But David Lee was really good.

    And Ronnie Williams could have been as good.

    Just because you are a Dunking Machine doesn't make you a center.

    Power forward is such a weird position. It can be a "stretch" forward like Nowitski or a more conventional power forward like McHale. Or it can be somebody in between. Horford probably covers the totality of the position as well as anyone. If looking for only a stretch 4, Matt Bonner is your man. A post-up 4 in the McHale mode would be Da Meat Hook (beautiful foot work in the post!), but he isn't listed.

    Great point Lurker: From the top list, the Gators have had all types of PFs. It will make the 2-5 positions a real challenge.
