Hey guys, It is that time of year again! Once again we kick of the PSD NBA Off-Season Player Rankings. This is the 7th year I have done this on PSD and it typically always makes for good deabte and often initates terrific discussion. Consider that when these polls first began, the likes of Baron Davis and Devin Harris were cracking these polls. Which player will you rank high this year that may get some raised eyebrows as the years pass by? Only time will tell. 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. Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs are NBA champions for the 5th time after getting some revenge for their finals loss last season to the Heat. We could be looking at the end of the big 3 era.

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 6 years so everyone can see how much things have changed...Enjoy.

For a player to be eligible for this years poll, they must of played in a minimum of 10 games.

REMEMBER this is based on who is the best player, not the player who has the potential to be the best. Though we do recognize that some voters will vote based soley on potential and others by last years numbers.

Damn Lowry is a top 5 PG now? 2011 & 12 were the years of extremely stacked PGs

Had.

Remember, this isn't about how they'll do next season. It's mostly about what they did this past season with a little past sprinkled in .

I don't think Lowry will be as good as he was this season again or if he is, he'll only sustain this for 2-3 seasons in his career.

That said, he was IMO a really damn good player this season.

Should be Dragic. Carried a team of nobodies and almost made the playoffs in the west.

Lol Lowry actually won?

How in the hell is Goran Dragic not part of this vote? I realize that people view him as a combo guard, but he played the majority of his minutes last season at PG and the vast majority of his minutes prior to last season as a PG. He's far more of a point guard than he is a shooting guard and if there is supposed to be any legitimacy to this vote whatsoever, his name should have been part of this a long, long time ago. Hell, I would have ranked him ahead of Lowry.

lol give me Conley over Lillard right now. Conley is great on both sides of the ball and a model of consistency.

Am I blind or is Dragic not even on the list?

There is no right answer here if its not Goran Dragic.

Yeah, I just brought this up. The lack of Goran Dragic as an option makes this poll totally invalid.

Lillard.

I think if Goran was listed here, he would end up at the 5 spot. Perhaps the OP felt Bledsoe is the true PG of the team and that Goran was more of a two way guard? IDK because Westbrook is also a two guard in a sense. Back to the topic, I think I might have to switch my vote to Lillard. Just saw a replay of him in the playoffs and my oh my, that was one nasty boy.

Actually, that's not a bad point. Dragic played 62% of his minutes at PG last year.

Defense made me pick John Wall over Damian Lillard, who by next year should be rated equally to Stephen Curry, who also still needs to learn to play defense.

6. John Wall
7. Damian Lillard
8. Kyrie Irving
9. Mike Conley
10. Ty Lawson

Lilliard isn't that close to Curry on either end. I don't think Wall or Lilliard hang with Westbrook/Curry for at least couple more seasons if ever.

Steph's a "weak" defensive player whose +defensive instincts allow him to still be sneaky effective and generally renders him a neutral on that end unless they're playing a team with two huge/fast guards and he's overwhelmed. But overall, I was pleased with Curry on that end last year.

Lillard is flat out unmistakably terrible both at an intensity level and instinctually at this point.

And Lillard's offense is not in Curry's tier or even one below as a playmaker or scorer while demanding far less defensive attention - so no - probably not going to happen on rating equally to Steph by next years end. That would be ****ing amazing to watch if he was, though.

Dragic should clearly be a pg. He mostly played pg last season and it's his natural position.
