    7th Annual PSD Player Rankings #3 PF In The NBA? (Volume: VII)

    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 solely on potential and others by last years numbers.

    Curious to know the argument why Dirk over LMA. Especially after seeing what LMA did in the post-season last year.

    Two vastly different players with unique skill sets. It depends on what you value. I don't know how you can call someone incompetent for voting Love number 2 after a 26 PPG, 12.5 rpg and 4.4 assist season.

    Davis, just because I think this is the year his 2-way rep becomes well deserved. As an undersized center hes going to be a liability due to his youth but as a 4-man alongside a legitimate Center, hes going to be a terror. Very similar to Elvin Hayes in Houston vs what his defense became in Washington, or like KG in Minnesota then Boston.

    He might push for Top-3 player in the game but he'll have to settle for this spot for now. Im usually the guy talking up Dirk at this point and after last years mini resurgence I still should be, I hope reports of his quicker release translate to an even better season but Im thinking he stagnates and Im thinking hes no longer the bonafide playoff stud worthy of the benefit of the doubt. So hes after LMA this year for me.

    Another interesting wrinkle in this is LMA has said he's going to be taking a lot more 3-pointers this season per his coaches' instruction. Many of his shots were a couple steps inside the 3-point line anyway, so if his touch extends that far it will be interesting to see what happens to his efficiency marks should he convert many of those long 2's into 3's...

    I don't think AD is going to be top 5 this season. Blake, CP3, KD, Bron, and Carmelo will have my vote this season.

    Dirk Nowitzki is still the most proven player over AD and LMA.

    I know he had a few monster games... but his overall PS numbers aren't exactly dominating... 26ppg on 23 shots per game? 45% from the field?

    RIGHT NOW, I would much rather have Dirk than LMA.

    Dirk was a 50/40/90 guy last year, and had a much higher PER. LMA beats him in rebounding, but I'll take Dirk's far superior efficiency and playmaking over a lil more rebounding.

    technically he was a 49/39/89 guy. May not seem like a big difference but it is. He joined the club in '07 and has been close (like this) a couple times since but hasn't really had a true 50/40/90 season since then.

    Davis is the clear cut choice here, and I think No. 3 is a fair spot for him based on his production and performance last season. But I do think there's a strong chance he skyrockets to No. 1 on this list a year from now. All it would take would be for him to see a slight boost in production and for New Orleans to be in the playoff hunt. Although he could be a legit 25/10 guy this season and I wouldn't be shocked by that in the slightest.

    As for No. 4, I'm going to keep picking Dirk until LMA proves he can be a relatively efficient scorer for a big man or Dirk is no longer the Dirk we've come to respect. But the big question is, are we counting Duncan as a PF or a C? Because he's not on this poll, but I would make a case for Duncan over LMA as well.
