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.


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

Davis and Millsap should round this off. No offense to David West

Davis is pure potential right now. His stats are sexy but still inconclusive considering how little we know about him. His +/- metrics are poor from what I recall, and me thinks his defensive positioning is a big reason why. If your going to go purely off stats, then why not his teammate, Ryan Anderson?

Gasol? What has he done the past 3 years? Might as well take amare

I went with Josh Smith here, because the composition of Anthony Davis' team helped him produce bigger numbers.
Davis played on a team of bad rebounders where the two premier bigs beside him managed a total of 15.3 rebounds per 36 minutes. Meanwhile, Al Horford and Zaza Pachulia averaged 20.6. So of course he managed more rebounds than Smith.
The defensive stats between the two are a wash, although it speaks volumes about Davis that he's already in Smith's territory in terms of blocking and stealing. At the same time, Anthony didn't have to score as much because of all the scorers on his team.
Smith's also a better passer.

Amare. Cause his stats were great for the amount of time he played

I guess if Kevin Love's got first place, then that logic suffices.

West deserved it.

Should've gone earlier. Pau at 8 is Wack.

Milsap or Smoove next for me. Although Ibaka and Boozer both have a case as well.

I want the power forward that shoots 45% from 3.

I am cool with West but I went Ibaka. I feel West IS the identity of that Pacer team, and I think they fall off a cliff without him. I just don't see the youngins being able to maintain the same toughness and poise without him. His impact on that team transcends the bball court. I still like Ibaka because he is the defensive dynamo and 3rd wheel on the 2nd/3rd best team in the NBA.
