RealGM Top 25 Player Poll-#23 2019-20 

Post#1 » by Filthadelphia » Wed Aug 21, 2019 3:32 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!!!!

Well, at least Chris Paul is in 1st in voting for a moment.
Nominate: Drummond
At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

Drummond is a good choice. He had a really underrated season last year.

In no way, shape, or form is Mitchell a better all-around player than Siakam.

Yeah, this. Mitchell might have more long-term potential, but Siakam is way ahead of him now and he’s improving just as fast.

Yeah he is. Pascal Siakam couldn't do the things or play the role on the Jazz that Mitchell has been asked to play. Entire defenses are keyed in on stopping Mitchell. In Toronto, the defenses have been keyed in on stopping Kawhi. Big difference.

Shoot, score, run the offense, create looks, and carry a team offensively. Lets see what Siakam looks like this year, now that he's forced to be a #1 option.

Lol, who is voting for CP3? The dude is cooked, he's not gonna be good next season, top40 at best and that's if he can play 60 games, which is unlikely.

Stop reading at ''shoot, score'' what even is that supposed to mean?? loool Siakam is a much more efficient scorer.
And clearly you didn't watch a single Raptors game last year in which Kawhi didn't play.

Mitchell is a better shooter, scorer and offensive creator. That's what it means.

I get that you love your Raptors, and Siakam is a deserving MIP. He's a very valuable contract, but he's not a top 25 player, imo.
