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 Tony Parkerl goes off the board, I will add other PG's.
As soon as Dwyane Wade 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.

Tough between Wade & Parker... but I'll go Wade. If MIA wasn't so stacked Wade is still a 25/6/6 50% type player, and his defense is still solid.

If hes having trouble staying healthy with Bron carrying the burden, what makes you think he'll be healthy enough to carry a full star responsibility? I think Wade needs to prove capable of staying healthy in a reduced role before we start anointing him ahead of more durable athletes.

This is the worst top ten yet. Harden and 5??? Duncan at 4??? You guys seriously need to re-vote this during the season when more posters are on here. This list really makes the site lose credibility.

Here is my top ten...

1. Lebron
2. Durant
3. CP3
4. Kobe
5. Wade
6. Duncan
7. Melo
8. Parker
9. Howard
10. Westbrook

I will say that at least you guys aren't as bad as ESPN by adding Rose in the top 5 even though he didn't play the past two seasons. Lol.

If Love was healthy all of last season I would have voted for him but I will go with Dwight for now.

Andre Iguodala??? He is at best the 3rd best player on his own team.

Glad Parker finally won, been voting for him since #4. Not that I think he is the 4th best player in the league, but he had a great year last year and I try my best to vote on these things based solely on the previous year.

Wade's injuries are starting to be overblown, this is not K Love or Amare we're talking about here.

Wade played more games and more MPG than Parker last year who is winning this poll. He also played more games than Melo & Tyson on my Knicks FWIW.

Yea he might be starting to decline slightly, but he was always a guy that would miss games even in his prime. The thing is when you're passed 30 and miss games people immediately want to say you're declining and done.

I don't think any player alone can carry a full star responsibility as you say... at least not leading a team to a title that way. But Wade & Bosh alone without Bron would do just fine if you replaced Bron with a decent wing or C.

I mean do you think Duncan who went #4 at this stage can carry a team? I don't... but that doesn't mean he's not a great player. He played MUCH less mpg than Wade last year and missed hte same amount of games.

Change the color of the list...Yellow is too bright and can't be seen well.
