Top 5 Power Forwards in Lakers History

The Los Angeles Lakers have had a plethora of dominate big men, but frankly most of them have been centers. Looking back, the Lakers have not had very dominate Power Forwards.

This position has changed dramatically over time as today’s players are much more athletic and agile. We already looked at the top five points guards, shooting guards and small forwards, so here our take on the Top 5 Power Forwards in Lakers History.

5: Robert Horry

Robert Horry was never a player to score 30 points a game or one to dominate the ball. However, you can be sure Horry wanted to shoot the final shot of the game. He made living off making clutch shots in the post-season and will always be remembered for his cold-blooded jumpers.

Horry was a key player in the Lakers’ three-peat in the early 2000s and Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal could always rely on him to hit game-winners.  Horry spent seven seasons with the Lakers and in that time he averaged 6.3 points and 5.5 rebounds per game.

The Lakers may not have won those three titles if it weren’t for Horry. He was always ready deliver when the game was on the line and everyone will remember the game-winning three he had over the Sacramento Kings.

    i think horry was better than odom.. so, i totallly disagree with this list

    • Ted

      Yes I agree Horry was better than Odom. I can’t for the life of me understand why these people loves Odom so much. First he’s the biggest baby I’ve ever seen, second he disappeared every single year in the playoffs.. Big shot Bob came through for us so many times especially in the playoffs.

      Alvin James Worthy is indeed great, but he was actually a small forward.

    Another list by this writer, who either can’t or won’t take the time to look further back than when he started watching basketball.  A fellow by the name of Vern Mikkelson played 10 seasons for the Lakers, averaged 14.4 PPG and 9.4 RPG while helping the Lakers to four NBA titles, being elected to six NBA all-star games and was a four-time 2nd team all NBA.  He’s not on the list, but Horry and Rambis are?  Please.

    And by “history” you mean “since 1981″.

    I wouldn’t put Karl Malone on the list, since he only played one year, but he was definitely better in 03-04 then Rambis ever was as a Laker.
