Default Looking back at a list ranking sf's

About a year ago a thread was made about ranking these four players. How would you rank them now?

Gerald Wallace, Josh Howard, Taysuan Prince, Caron Butler.

Tough to rank, but I'd say Butler, Wallace, Prince, Howard in that order if I was starting a team.

1. Josh Howard

3. Gerald Wallace
4. Caron Butler

I place Josh Howard first because he does everything well and I believe he has not peaked yet. (Dallas fans, know that I just threw up in my mouth by saying that) Tayshaun is just an unbelievable defensive player and average to above average offensive player. Gerald plays harder than 97% of the player in NBA and he is does everything well also.......except shoot the ball. He also seems to get hurt an exorbitant amount of time because of the way he plays. Caron Butler is a great offensive player (perhaps the best out of everyone on the list) and good defensive player. He plays smart and hard but I'm not convinced his game would translate to a team that plays predominantly in a half court set.

depends on what kind of team you have and what role you want him to play. Prince would be more important if it was a defensive oriented team. You want some fast paced action, you go with Butler or Wallace. Howard seems like a very good system player although that might be a bit of an assumption. I've seen him play about 30 times or so.

4. Gerald(even though he's my favorite out of all of these guys... he's not as good as them but IMO nearly as good as Prince)

Crazy how only a year ago we were arguing Wallace or Prince and Caron was the concensus last. Funny how things progress.

Howard would be #1 if he wasn't such an idiot.

I don't think the differences between them are clear enough to put them in a good order without a situation in which they can fit. I'm almost inclined to call Prince, Butler and Wallace tied, but it somehow doesn't feel right to put Howard below all of them.

If I HAD TO throw an order down right now, it'd be Butler, Prince, Wallace, Howard. With a slim margin between Wallace and Prince, only because Prince hasn't had a bigger role to show what he's capable of.
Yeah, that's it.

1. Butler
2. Prince
3. Wallace
4. Howard

I'll never forgive Josh Howard for that time out. There are plenty of SFs/back up small forwards I take over him. The rest of them have proven themselves to me, especially Caron.

4. Wallace

Tay is the most complete player of the group: He shoots well from 3 and mid range, good inbounder, awesome transition defense, runs the point a few minutes each game for chauncey, excellent transition scorer (only guy on our team who can finish on the break), rarely makes a boneheaded play, really good man2man and team defense, good rebounder, can post up, slashes a bit, doesn't take nights off, and scores 15 a game without ever having his number called.

If you purely wanted a scorer maybe you take Butler or Howard, but I'm not convinced Tayshaun couldn't average 20 if he wasn't the 5th option and got some plays called for him.
