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.

Monta Ellis has to be here. Did y'all watch him play last season?

Stats don't lie and he was on a winning team

everyone needs to take off the klay homer glasses till he actually becomes a great player
wes matthews played a very similar role in portland and was more effective, so if you take a 3 and d guy here, its him

going manu here though because nobody else stands out above the rest, and he is still by far the best guy left despite limited minutes

Out of Thompson and Stephenson for me. It is close, but Stephenson had too much negative baggage last year so I give the nod to Thompson. I can also see an argument for Ginobli and maybe Beal here.

Klay Thompson.

The SG position is insanely weak right now.

This one is tough, i think it's between Lance and Klay personally. I think I'm going to vote Lance.

I'm 100% confident though that Beal will be in this top 5 list next year

I think Klay and Lance are both relatively overrated, but it probably is between them right now. Tho, I don't think Joe Johnson is actually far behind. He can actually play like a 1 or 2 option on offense...something I worry about Klay or Lance ever having to do. Little separates these guys from guys like Wes or Beal either.

But I'll take Lance. Lance can actually create for himself and others on offense. Klay is essentially just a catch-and-shoot 3 point specialist on offense. Valuable, but far from dynamic. I think they defend at pretty equal rates as well.

I too hope that I can vote for Beal here next year. #GoGators
