RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#18 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Sun Aug 11, 2019 9:19 am

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

Between Walker, Dipo and Holiday. We've got to see if how Dipo comes back. I went with the MUCH better defender.

Holiday might not be the best at carrying a team but he would be a great complimentary player to fit with other stars and I think that has underrated value. If you added him to any of the top 5 or 6 teams it would probably put them over the top but maybe not the others remaining on the list.

When the house is Siakam don’t come a knockin. He plays the same position as Luka and is improving at the same rate only he’s starting with a HUGE edge defensively while only being a little behind on offense.

Nominate Chris Paul.

It is funny Durant is on the poll when there is a very good chance he would not play at all next season.

Vote Beal
Nominate Vucevic

I was going to vote Kemba because I thought that while worst defensively, he was better offensively. But then I realized that he wasn’t even a better offensive player than Beal.

Maybe id you take into account playing PG for the Celtics.. Still, Beal should be entering his prime next year.

lol Luka winning this, I mean he's good and will be the best of the bunch listed probably. He's not there yet and he's pretty much only better than Mitchell on this poll currently.
