#4. Atlanta Hawks

The two-headed monster of Paul Millsap and Al Horford vaults Atlanta's frontcourt all the way up to No. 4 in our ranking. While neither player is an MVP-caliber contributor, they remain genuine stars anchoring the success of Mike Budenholzer's Hawks.

Kent Bazemore was certainly a step down from the departed DeMarre Carroll (now suiting up in Toronto), but Bazemore contributed enough to round out a top-five frontcourt.

Thanks for posting. I guess it shows us how much worse it could be without Al and Sap. Surprised we rated so well with Al avoiding the paint on both ends of the floor as much as he did, whether by Bud's design or not.

For the regular season, yeah.  None of them have proven capable of effective deep postseason play where much more contact is allowed, though.  The game is too hard and fast for this current Group outside of Dennis, which is pretty sad seeing how he's the youngest and smallest.
