RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#16 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Thu Aug 8, 2019 8:41 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!!!!

The Euro bias on this forum is nuts. The Siakam underrating on this forum is nuts.

Nominate DeRozan

Why is no one else nominating him or even Drummond

People need to start voting Kemba because he is definitely a top 20 player.

If he is, it's probably only due to injury. Healthy KD, Klay and Oladipo would all be ahead of him. So even if you only think those 3 and Kyrie are better, he's 20th, and I'd still put Beal over him and probably Luka.

Thinking about my vote but nominate Siakam.

CP3 probably deserves a shout as well.

Because his teams been worse with him on the floor than they have with him on the bench for 7 regular seasons and 6 postseasons in a row.

Anyway, this looks like Lowry to me of the choices in the poll. His advanced stats have been much better than Kyrie’s pretty much every season and he proved last year that he can get it done in the Finals just like Kyrie. He’s MUCH healthier and better in a locker room too.

Nominate Siakam.

What Euro went high other than Gobert? Giannis and Jokic seemed pretty on the nose to me. Only other Euro who’s even been nominated is Doncic and he’s far from the worst of the choices on the board.

Interesting that none of my top 3 choices at this point are even on the board to vote for (Siakam, CP3, Jrue). That’s definitely never happened before in the history of this project.

Better than the actual ratings at least
