I don't think there's a best body type for any position, it really depends on what you like to do/what your playing style is. If you're more of a post player who bangs down low then I'd try to get bigger, if you're more mobile and have more range I'd aim for quickness.

The prototypical power forward is probably pretty big, second just to a center but more mobile. Maybe something between Amare Stoudemire and Chris Bosh.

Athleticism is always good, try to get heavier so you don't get pushed around alot, but aim to maintain mobility.

That's just my opinion, it's up to you to decide how you want to be.
