Hey guys, Some of you may remember that for the last four years I have conducted a poll at the end of the season that had PSD users vote for the top 10 players at each position. The season is now over and the Heat have been crowned NBA champs which means its time to kick off the off-season player rankings.

A lot has changed since last season. Lebron was labelled by some as Choke Artist in the clutch and now this year had one of the greatest finals performances in recent memory. Let start the discussion since lots has changed since the start of last season. Please TRY AND VOTE FOR THE BEST PLAYER AND DON'T BE A HOMER. I will leave the poll open for one day and than we can carry on to the next best player at that position. I will add more players after each round. I have also included the results of those last 4 years so everyone can see how much things have changed...Enjoy.

REMEMBER this is based on who is the best player, not the player who has the potential to be the best

If Dirk runs away with this, as he should, can we start the #3 slot today? Im very interested in that debate. I have Bosh and Pau as my frontrunners.

I got no problem with Dirk going here, I happen to like Gasol's skill set a little better though. Can't wait to see what he does with Nash.

Pau's down year dooms him here. But I do think the next one will be a decent debate between Bosh, Pau, and possibly LMA, though I don't think he is with them yet.

If this were ranking centers I would have Pau here, you could argue his versatility to play both spots makes him the better PF but I actually think its a weakness now that hes not a true PF anymore. You say you havent seen any slippage athletically but I disagree. I think he was far more capable operating in the high post before but I could be wrong.

Lets see what the new offense and PG do for him. Im hoping for big things but even at his best, he never had a run like Dirk had just 2 years ago. If Dirk bows out again or Pau has a better run Ill admit my mistake.

Dirk again. Anyone who would choose Love over Dirk for 1 game right now is overrating Love or underrating Dirk

Is Garnett not included on the poll because he will be in the Center rankings?

Bosh, Aldridge, Gasol, Griffin, Stoudemire can all go either way in the next 5 picks

Stoudemire is nowhere near the conversation with any of those guys.

If amare switched teams with Blake IMO he would be the better player. But I agree amare is around7-10, I have him at 8

I went Gasol, Dirk probably had the worst year of his career yet he is number 2? And Wallace couldnt get on top 10 because he dropped off barely?

Dont make this into a Nets thread. Just end it here.

I can make a case for the black swan (Gasol), but he had a bad year last year so I'm going with Dirk.

Well he did average 22PTS (per36) on 48% without Melo on the court, but that still not that good given his **** defense, poor rebounding and lack of playmaking.

Yea but throw Griffin the ball and tell him to get you a basket and see what he gives you. Griffin isn't there yet, while Dirk will come through more often then not.

You don't need the offensive rebound when your draining unguardable fadeaways :eyebrow::eyebrow:
