LMFAO, you really think that Irving is the best player on this list? Hahahaha


Maybe? I mean it's pretty tight together at this point. It's not like there is a HUGE separation between the guys on the boards.

this entire poll/list is compromised...either Durant should've been voted into the top 3 or 4, or he should've been left off completely. there is no in between.

Quite the opposite, we have to keep KD in there because we kept him in for all previous polls. That's the only to make it fair.

It'll be interesting to see where exactly a post achilles injury KD ranks among the top 25, like at which exact point, we will be like ok, even a 85% KD is better than this _____ guy.


I don't understand the argument that if Durant was there previously, he has to stay there. The choice set changes every round and Durant isn't garnering a ton of votes anyway. People largely seem to be judging on expected performance for the 19/20 season (I take the poll to be that way too) and Durant is unlikely to play at all.

I voted for him up until #5, once he slipped I didn't vote for him. It's better if he's not on it.

How could we rank a player we've never seen before? Because if we're evaluating the latest version (partially torn achilles) KD from the finals, he was still (imo) the best player in basketball putting up 11 points in 9 minutes and absolutely clamping up Siakam and it's disrespectful to have him anywhere below 3.

votes are being wasted which is also tainting the accuracy of these rankings.

There will be no 85% KD, or any other KD, in the 2019-20 season; which is why he shouldn’t be in a poll about who the best players will be in “2019-20.”

Vote Dame
Nominate 85% peak Jordan, since the poll’s apparently a thought experiment

Has there ever been any conversation or answer by OP why he's leaving Durant in there?

I voted Lilliard for 2nd time in a row.

It's funny, the same 13 people vote Durant every time. So it keeps making it look like he'll get picked next, but it's only the same 13 people so everyone just votes someone else each time. He's probably not even going to make it on the Top 25 at this rate.
