OP leaves it a bit ambiguous, like maybe it's up to you, but the title of the thread says "2019-20."

Man... Durant, Jokic, and Embiid EACH having twice as many votes as Harden is so messed up. The disrespect isn't ever going to end until he either retires or wins a championship. It is what it is at this point.

I was wondering if you were bringing this back. This was thoroughly enjoyable, informative, and frustrating last year. It will be interesting to see if Irving has the same legion of supporters this year.

Nominate: Lillard

If you knock Durant out (and you should....won't be a factor next year, let alone Top 10): Add Gobert
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

He finished 16th. Seems reasonable, at least. Was it just how vociferous they were, or did you strongly dispute that ranking?

I just don't understand why KD would be an option if we are looking to 2019-20

I went with Giannis because he consistently brought it the most last year. I feel his body sort of broke down at the end. Perhaps he needed a little load management. I'd go with Load Management himself second, but no qualms with him winning. There were numerous times during the playoffs where he simply refused to let his team lose. I really want to see LM vs. LeBron in the WCF finals.

This. There was a lot of anger that he wasn't in the Top 10 and incrementally heightened sense of incredulousness each time he wasn't selected for the next space.

I think I had Irving around 18-20 if my memory serves me correct, some had him 7th or 8th. The overall ranking wasn't bad at all.

He just impacts other players stats positively to a degree that nobody else does, while putting up dominant production himself. Losing KD will highlight his personal dominance similar to in the playoffs in this coming season.


Curry provides nothing on the defensive end. He’s not even eligible for best in the league.

Okay, I got you. Yeah, he never belonged top ten. We could argue like 12th or 20th and that would be fine, in my opinion. He's an interesting case.

Kevin Durant should be taken out of the poll he won't be playing this season. Otherwise where he lands will screw everything up because some will vote on just this year (meaning he's not top 25) or he'll land in the top 5-10 just because some are counting him as healthy.

To be honest I would take Klay out as well. I would take out anyone who is not expected to exceed the threshold for games played/minutes played etc.

I voted Kawhi. He was the best player in the world this past season so until he's not I'll go with him.

I would have Damian Lillard replace Kevin Durant if he does get removed due to injury. Regardless I still have Dame next to be in the poll.

Kyrie was the runner up like six times in a row and kept getting leapfrogged by someone new. It was a really interesting phenomenon and it drove the Celtics fans crazy.
