RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#3 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:30 pm

Your favorite offseason debate is back by popular demand!
Thanks to everyone who voted last go around Im excited to see where the 2nd annual edition ends up.

Here's the Rules:
-Vote ONE player per poll. You'll be able to change your vote just like last year for those indecisive folks.
-The criteria of ranking the players is YOUR OWN. The whole point of bringing this to the GB is to attract the widest amount of votes/perspectives on the game as possible to form a true consensus. Some people value shooting over defense, team success over indivdual prowess etc. I want to bake all that in to this poll set no matter how chaotic.
-Each poll a player will win and then be taken out of the field. There will be 25 polls in all.
-There are only 10 possible poll options so I will start with the 10 guys who I personally believe will round out the top 10 in most people's eyes.
-As each poll commences I ask you to COMMENT IN THE THREAD your vote for who should be added in the next poll. There will be a large list of players yet to be added to the field below that you can look over to make your vote. I will tally up the votes in the comments at the end of each poll and add the winner accordingly. For example, if you want Marc Gasol added in the next poll just comment "Marc Gasol" or "Gasol".
-If a poll is overwhelmingly skewed towards one guy I will try, time willing, to edit it early and move on to the next one.
-If there is a tie in the poll. There will be a run-off poll created with just the tying parties to determine a winner. The losers of the runoff will then be added back into the field of 10 for the next poll.
-Feel free to ask any questions via pm or comment
-Feel Free to comment on your reasoning for a pick and why

THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING!!!!

Hard to know how to account for Durant in these polls.

The average recovery time would get him back playing games around mid-March. Even then, he'd likely be nowhere near 100%.

I voted Harden, but I think Harden, James, Curry, and perhaps Jokic are all in a similar sphere. Fivethirtyeight's new DRAYMOND stat asserts Harden is actually quite good on defense and his offense is dominant. And speaking of Draymond...

Nominate: Draymond Green

Minogue? I mean, she needs to work on her crossover, but I can see it.

Average recovery time to maybe get on a court may be that

But average outcome for returning to form from an achilles injury is never (75th percentile outcome appears to be never too) and thus that weighs heavily on my ranking.

Has to be Lebron or Steph here

I think it makes more sense by now allowing the user to change their vote, otherwise people are just going to look at the poll results and alter their vote.
