RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#10 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Fri Jul 26, 2019 11:02 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

THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE FOR PARTICIPATING!!!!

Gotta go with Jimmy Buckets here. Finished 7th in RPM in 2017 and 4th in 2018 before facing a slight dip to 14th last year after starting out the year in an unhappy situation in Minnesota. He played very well for Philly though and there’s no reason to think he won’t be happy in Miami. From a pure box score standpoint, he’s barely behind Lillard the last few years and when you account for Jimmy being a great defender and Dame being below average it pushes him clearly ahead IMO.

Nominating someone is tough at this point with so many candidates so close but I’ll vote for Chris Paul.

Despite Draymond having a likely monster season in San Francisco, it's got to be Lillard here. 2nd team All-NBA last year, came off his most success in the playoffs thus far. No way he's not a top 10 player in the league this season.

Dame Lillard is running away with this poll.

Quite the opposite, we have to keep KD in there because we kept him in for all previous polls. That's the only to make it fair.

It'll be interesting to see where exactly a post achilles injury KD ranks among the top 25, like at which exact point, we will be like ok, even a 85% KD is better than this _____ guy.

I went with Draymond. Lillard is great, but I’ll take Green’s defense over Lillard’s offense and Green’s offense over Lillard’s defense.

Nominate: Griffin
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

But he isn’t even supposed to play 1 minute. He shouldn’t even be a top 300 player in 2019-20
