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.


In terms of adding players to the poll, it will be done like this.

As soon as Chris Paul goes off the board, I will add other PG's.
As soon as James Harden goes off the board, I will add other SG's
As soon as Kevin Love goes off the board, I will add other PF's.

And so on and so on..

This is to ensure that players that won their respective positions get a higher place in the list. One of the goals of these polls is to maintain some continuity between the polls we completed to the final player poll we are currently voting.

So who you got here now that Duncan is gone. Likely between Harden and Melo. Tough Call.

I honestly dont like whos left. Would rather vote for a healthy Kobe but I guess Harden is the next best thing.

whats wild is that we have no guarantee that either of these players will ever return to what they were. uncertain times in the NBA.

Seriously. 20 years ago we'd be mulling over young Shaq and prime Malone/David Robinson right here. I'll take Harden, I guess?

And 20 years from now people are going to be saying

" 20 years ago we'd be mulling over young Harden/KLove and prime Dwight"

I hope your right but at this point, its kind of sad that prime Harden barely outpaced old *** Kobe.

Nothing quite like what tre said

I guess Harden gets my vote by default, i wish i could've gone Kobe though.

Kobe wrote the book on how to rack titles with an elite center as a shooting guard. Hardens read every page, best believe. and harden will have to be a lot more dominant than young kobes was if he's gona make up for the mammoth difference between Shaq and Dwight.

i dont understand why so many people are so certain that howard will return to his 2009 form. everyone knows that he didn't just post the lowest WS/48 since his rookie season because he was a Laker, right? back surgery is serious business, especially when you don't let it heal properly.

he could return to forum, but I got to see it first. he's getting a lot of benefit of the doubt for a player with weak mental fortitude and a mediocre basketball IQ.

I don't think Dwight had a better season, but I'm taking Dwight to build my team over anyone else left. Just too much of a dominant presence. In that regard, yea I'd take him over Kobe.

Why isn't Kobe an option?

This poll is bs.

Give me any of those players over Harden. Very good player, but incredibly overrated.

No love for TP? Kobe should've been #5, but out of those guys I'm taking Tony "forever 29 years old" Parker.

I agree. I don't think people realize that Parker took a huge step up this year and had his best season yet. He lead the Spurs to the finals and almost won against a super team. He makes more sense to me at #5 than Harden who is great, but looks to be over rated.

If we are start rating Spurs players based on their team success...

Just stop. Harden was better.

and i dont know where all the Harden trashing is coming from. he posted a WS/48 above .200 and a TS% at .600. he lead a team of statistically average nba players to the post-season. sounds pretty good to me.

You were born after 2003 huh?

Kobe knows very well how to play with a franchise center cause he did with Shaq you dumb***.
