    Voting is based on this season only. Don't vote a certain way just because you like one player and hate another. Be honest and vote based on how you think they played this season. Specify in your post why you voted the way you did, and add any + or - to the grade.

    I will go in alphabetical order for the reviews. Each player will remain up for a couple of days to accumulate votes. Then we'll go on to the next.

    Base your voting off of expectations. For example, a 'C' would be that the player met expectations and provided nothing more or less than such. 'A' would be that the player went above and beyond what you expect. 'F'... well you get the picture. In other words, just because one player ends up with a 'B', doesn't make him the "better" player than someone who gets a 'C'.

    Also, like last year, instead of just using the grade that gets the most votes as the final grade, I'll do an average of the votes. It's not going to be super accurate down to the decimal, but maybe give us a better idea in certain situations. Each grade will be worth the following.

    A = 4
    B = 3
    C = 2
    D = 1
    F = 0

    Then I'll average it out to:

    A: 4.0 - 3.5
    B: 3.4 - 2.5
    C: 2.4 - 1.5
    D: 1.4 - 0.5
    F: 0.4 - 0.0

    The final grades will be posted with their average.

    Marco started the season off pretty awfully. He wasn't a great asset until, oh 25 or so games into the season. Then, boom... he started scoring like a true starter. He turned out to be a better passer and distributor than I originally anticipated (career best 148 assists, career best 1.80ast/tov ratio). As a whole, his defense was solid. He improved in that department. However, nothing Marco did really exceeded my expectations for his overall production on the court. He was better in some areas (passing/defense), but ultimately disappointing in others (only 3.0 attempts from three per game, career low 46.0efg%, second worst ts% of his career as well).

    If Marco played with a healthy Hinrich and a healthy Rose and played more minutes with the starters, he would have better numbers in my mind. For all of these reasons, Marco deserves a "C" from me.

    Not a big fan of his running Fade away jumper, but, he did turn out to be rather clutch later in the season.
    A solid B from me.

    B leaning towards an A. I had high hopes for him when he was signed and was glad to see him deliver with a rather consistent performance when he got into the season. It was a risk bringing him in to start and it paid off in spades both for the Bulls and Marco himself (likely in the form of a contract from another team).

    In a better situation, with a better and more stable back court, I think Marco's performance could have been even better.

    B+ as a starter, D off the bench. For some reason when he came off the bench he struggled all year. As a starter he was solid.

    One has to account for the possibility that Marco saw the end of his career as an NBA player a likely result of playing poorly off the bench and some real 'funk' got into his head. Also, Marco's best career contributions came as a starter in the NBA and yet he had seen his role contracted. Many players often lose their production when their roles are changed, Ronnie Brewer springs to mind most recently.

    If we didn't have Rip, he would have been the automatic starter and probably would have played better early in the season.

    The Wizards' missing piece.

    B

    He was really importnt for this team and had some huge games.
    What i didnt like was his hesitation to shoot until the playoffs came. Only in the playoffs he didnt hesitate... in the regular season he did.

    He was also solid defender mostly against the NETS and JJ in game 5,6 and 7.

    Solid B. If he resigns i think he will get good minutes from the bench.
