RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#19 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Tue Aug 13, 2019 3:46 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 Kemba. I believe his 18-19 season is not a contract year fluke.

Nominate: Malcolm BrogdOn.

Why isn't Klay Thompson up here yet? This is a travesty.

Won't play for the majority of the season. Shouldn't be surprising.

Then why is Kevin Durant up here? He's not playing for the ENTIRE season.

Last time I voted for Kemba, but this time I will more use improvement projections and vote for Luka Doncic and nominate Jamal Murray. In case Durant is finally going to be removed I suggesting Nikola Vucevic as a replacement.

Kemba Walker is a valid guy here.

But if Holiday's offensive bump from the past two seasons continues... he could take this spot.

The OP started it with KD in there, nobody nominated him. People, including myself, have been asking the OP to remove him from the poll since the beginning.

I have Jrue over Kemba...although I could see Kemba taking a small leap in a better system with better players around him. But for now I prefer Jrue's defense and versatility.
