    5th Annual PSD Player Rankings #5 Player In The NBA? (Volume: V)

    Hey guys, Some of you may remember that for the last four years I have conducted a poll at the end of the season that had PSD users vote for the top 10 players at each position. The season is now over and the Heat have been crowned NBA champs which means its time to kick off the off-season player rankings.

    A lot has changed since last season. Lebron was labelled by some as Choke Artist in the clutch and now this year had one of the greatest finals performances in recent memory. 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 two days and than we can carry on to the next best player in the league. I will add more players after each round. I have also included the results of those last 4 years so everyone can see how much things have changed...Enjoy.

    REMEMBER this is based on who is the best player, not the player who has the potential to be the best

    Rules of adding players to the Voting Process

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

    As soon as Derrick Rose goes off the board, I will add other PG's.
    As soon as Kobe Bryant 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.


    1) Lebron James
    2) Kevin Durant
    3) Dwight Howard
    4) Chris Paul
    5)
    6)
    7)
    8)
    9)
    10)

    Next poll is up. Torn between Kobe and Love here. Love had the best year of any of the options on the board.

    Come on.... this belongs to Kevin Love...
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    Kevin Love a top 5 player who couldn't bring his team to the playoffs? I think he is in the top 10 discussion but top 5?

    Not every player can have Bynum and Gasol as a supporting cast.

    Some people dont want to vote kobe here and the next logical choice is wade but they are forced to vote for someone else(like love or rose).

    You don't need those type of players to make it at least as an 8th seed. If you're top 5 then you're the best of the best, you are elite. A superstar. To me, I think a top 5 player should at least be able to lead his team to the playoffs.

    James-Durant-Howard-Paul-Bryant will be the top 5.


    All NBA 1st team this past season as well as for next season.



    Makes sense.

    The Knicks barely made the post season last year in the EAST despite Melo having a MUCH better supporting cast. Last time Kobe had a supporting cast as poor as Love's he MISSED the post season (actually Kobe's cast was actually better than Love's in 04-05) and don't even get started with Dirk what exactly would Dirk do so much better than Love to bring his team to the post season. Dirk's supporting cast's D was the major reason the Mavs played as good as they did last season when Dirk wasn't playing like we knew he could.

    That's a blanket statement which couldn't be more wrong.

    You guys gotta do WAY better if you intend to make a case against Love here. He has as great an argument as anyone else here.

    Between the years 1974-77 would you say that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was a top 5 player in the NBA?

    Since he was voted there despite the injury, I'll vote for him under the impression that he's fully healthy. I'll take Rose.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    I am going Love. If Wade were an option, I would give it to him, but imo, Love had the best season individually of any of the players left. I understand some want to see playoffs, but even though he finally got a roster that was capable, his star PG tore his knee, and injuries killed the Wolves. His efficiency, rebounding, and statistical domination give him the nod here for me.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
