Hey guys, It is that time of year again! Once again we kick of the PSD NBA Off-Season Player Rankings. This is the 6th year I have done this on PSD and it always brings some great discussion and debate. Please keep things civil and discuss who you feel is most fitting and deserving of being voted in each poll.

A lot has changed since last season. Lebron James and the Miami Heat are back to back NBA champions after an exciting 7 game series win over the Spurs. 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 5 years so everyone can see how much things have changed...Enjoy.

Due to some people complaining that the rule was not written for the PG poll; in order to be eligible for these rankings, players must of played in 10 or more games last season. Thank you.

I still can't believe Deng fell to seven after the year he had.

Don't see what was so special about Deng other than hustling his *** off and keeping up decent production. I'd still take AK over him, so that said, Kirilenko here.

Parsons.

LOL at Kirilenko getting votes here. Good player, but might not even be top 15.

Other than? I guess his WS/48 isn't adequate enough to draw your attention.

Not much about his game is adequate enough to draw my attention in relation to top 5 SF's (which you are apparently comparing him to in saying that you cannot believe he fell to 7). He played the most MPG and is good defensively, so that is nice (although at <39 mpg, I seriously cannot believe that led all players. Has to be an all time low in NBA history). Nothing about his game offensively sticks out as above average.

AK's a very unsexy player to common fans because he doesn't get the boost in box-score stats due to limited minutes (a good and bad, as obviously playing more matters), and he's just a very smart defender (which most people don't notice or care much about). But he's also a far more efficient scorer than Deng and imo just a better asset.

Gerald Wallace probably would fit here.

MHC, I think if you report your OPs rather than say "Mods please sticky" you'll get your stuff stickied faster. If a mod comes into this thread they'll probably be stickying it anyways. Just a suggestion since this one seems to have been lost in the fold.

I voted AK. Love Parsons and he'll be here next year, but I do think AK is the superior overall player. Can't ignore defense. Parsons really only is a superior scorer, and even that isn't by much at all.

I like Parsons, but he is a one way player. Batum is much better on the defensive end and is very comparable on the offensive side - so he gets my vote. Now, for the money, Parsons is absolutely amazing. Based on advanced stats, AK >> than both.

Gotta be between Batum and Parsons here. I went Parsons but its a toss-up imo

AK's defensive cred is getting extremely overrated at this point in his career. Defensively he was 'good' last year, not 'great'. Offensively, he's an enigma. Add in all of the time missed due to injuries and I'll pass.

Parsons or Batum is more deserving at this point

I just really like Batum's game a lot and Parsons should certainly be in the conversation. Though I feel both players have similar offensive games but the edge on D goes to Batum for me. That is why he gets my vote here.

Parsons is a one way player?? Are you on crack.

Why is everyone overlooking Marion? He was 15/9/3 on 51% shooting in 36 minutes and 18.0 PER last season, while Parsons had only 15.3.

Well, he averaged 1.5 stl + 1.0 blk and rated 'great' per Synergy and RAPM. What's your argument that his defense is extremely overrated? I'd argue it's extremely underrated.

Parsons is the hot player of these choices right now, but in no way at this point better than some still on the board. That includes the aging Marion.
