RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#17 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Fri Aug 9, 2019 4:09 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!!!!

It's a travesty that Blake didn't finish in the top 15. I'm expecting another monster season from him.

This one has to be Kemba easily. He is a top 20 player, but people are being dumb on here and not realizing it just because he was on a bad team last year, SMH.

Nominate Drummond (How is he not getting nominated either)

Pretty confident Kemba still finishes top 20. Maybe 18.

The toughest choice for me so far. I guess Oladipo is the best here, but he will miss enough games at the start of the season to be taken seriously this early. Actually, the best in terms of quality is Durant, but I ignore with a reason his case for 2019-20 voting. Beal is the only from the garbage team, so I will not vote for him this time despite no surprise if he finishes this season with best personal numbers out of these 10, and Jrue will probably miss the playoff too. Simmons play in the best team, but that will damage his numbers. Doncic and Mitchell will improve for sure, but it is unfair to vote for them already using so big projected improvement, despite it is not unrealistic. Lowry is 33y old, it will be shocking to see him playing career-best season.

So I will share #17 and #18 vote between Kemba and Griffin. Griffin is better, but Kemba is healthier and playing for a better team, so I voted for Kemba.
