RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#13 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Thu Aug 1, 2019 5:39 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!!!!

voted KAT
nominate: D. Mitchell

Tough decision between KAT and Gobert.
This should be Kyries spot, talentwise. But with all the off the field 'wokeness' and the on the field 'not giving a **** ' half of the time, we were able to expierence last season, I´ll have to drop him a spot or two.
Or ten...

Gobert and Green should he next but by judging by the hivemind the sheep will elect Tyus Jones and Klay Thompson next.

Vote: Gobert
Nom: Olidipo

I'm kind of surprised Westbrook went #12. IMO he was below that last year and I don't see his game aging well. For now it's Gobert and Towns, then probably Blake

Why do you like Gobert so many spots ahead of Draymond Green? Would anyone really rather have Gobert when the playoffs roll around? He still has yet to have one good playoff series in his entire career. Draymond has been one of the Top 5 players in the playoffs over the course of the last 5 seasons and maybe even was last year. He really didn’t seem like he’d lost a single step once the games started to matter.

Still nominating Pascal Siakam. Dude made huge strides over the course of the season, averaged 20/8/4 in the NBA Finals while shooting over 50% from the field, and he’s still learning how to play the game. He’s going to be an absolute monster this season. He should have gone ahead of Westbrook for sure.

Damn how is Luka Doncic already up there before Kyle Lowry.

Lowry and Aldridge are two of the most disrespected players in the League

Voted KAT
Nominate Jrue Holiday

To me it’s a tie between KAT and Beal. Beal’s been on a top 10 in the league level since Wall went down and if he keeps that level of play up, he’s surely top 15 next season.

Oof...I wonder what it is about Gobert that causes people to produce these outlandish over exaggerations.
