RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#15 2019-20

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!!!!

I think it's time for Kyrie. Lot of backlash, but he's at least the 15th best player in the league.

Adding : J. Holiday.

He was borderline top 25 last year. He's in his prime, unlike the two other guys who will receive the most votes, Aldridge and Lowry, who will probably both be worst next year. And Jrue is just a better player than DeRozan when you factor in defense.

According to what? They're both bad defensively, but Kemba is worst. Irving is a more efficient scorer and a better passer. Kyrie is also 2 years younger. What's the case for Kemba? Irving is better according to every advanced stats I saw. The only case for Kemba is if Kyrie gets injured.

Did you not factor that Kemba played on a weaker team? Of course his advanced stats would be worse. Celtics would be so much better this year.

People here on this forum overrate jimmy butler hes not a top 10ish player, he wasnt even an all star in the weak east and didnt even make an all nba team hes more in the 15-20 range its just peoples opinions on this forum but the accolades and all nba selection along with stats overall signify the players importance. The raptors had overall more depth than philly as guys like siakam, lowry, gasol, vanvleet, and ibaka all contributed separately.
