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.

Yeah, MHC, you need to re-post this. The mods didn't sticky it quick enough and a 2-2 tie is totally unacceptable.

Lol at gallo. He is horrible...ok, not, but still.

Gallo did. It play last season.

Aliza was VERY important to what Washington did last season. He actually played. He was on my fantasy team and he ended up with a very high ranking. He deserved to go like 6th-8th.

What the hell is this gallo love when he's pretty much had ONE season where he's been pretty good (2011-12 season).

You are right Gallo did not play last season.

I do question the rest of your post. Trevor has only averaged double figures 4 times in his whole career and in 3 of the 4 he shot below 40%. If either of them only had ONE good season people might say last year was it for Trevor. If you liked Gallo's season in 2011-2012 why would you not like his 2012-1013 season when he had some incredible clutch shots to win games and was at all star level according to Magic and Charles?

Are you able to reopen the pole? Seems kind of lame having this one end a 2-2 tie.

is this 2-2 tie a sign that there is no such thing as a 10th best SF? Hmmmmm

I'm seriously willing to help mile high with some of the posts. I know life gets busy but we gotta get these done by mid October.

If he wants, I can help once he posts the stats for the #1 thread.

We still got PF, CENTER, AND TOP 10 left.

I do not have mod powers in this forum but I will see if I can find somebody that can re-open the poll.

Paul Pierce should win this one...

I'm going with Deng here, he didn't have a great season but I'm putting that down to "other" circumstances, he's already proven he's a high caliber player and a positive locker room presence. I like him at #10 but would have been okay with him being a couple spots either side of that as well.

I can see arguments for Ariza, Tobias and maybe even Pierce at a stretch.
