FAST FACTS

Clippers PG Chris Paul also received 7% of the vote.... Celtics PG Rajon Rondo is the youngest (26) of the 34 players named.... The Raptors' Jamaal Magloire (1%) was the only true center named. Meanwhile, 61% of the votes went to guards.... Fisher (who doubles as president of the NBPA) was signed by Oklahoma City on March 21 and has since mentored rookie reserve PG Reggie Jackson, who says Fisher "changed the locker room already. He [talks] me through every moment ... lets me ask questions, and he's always willing to give advice." ... In a similar poll on Facebook, Nash (37%) edged out Fisher (36%) for the top spot.
