I don't follow the Jazz as you can probably tell. sorry for the miss spelling I am just a bad speller as others can attest to on this board.

This is the first season he deserves to be considered among the best in the NBA and he certainly has recieved that credit.

AK47, He's been playing injured, but you can't deny that he has been exposed for the overrated player he is.

Okur may be the one (of your top tier players) that is legitimately underrated. He is a terrific shooter for a big man and continually proves that he can come up big in the clutch. We all saw the numbers he put up last year when he had to fill the void of injuries, and they were impressive to say the least.

I agree that ak is pretty overrated. But saying that deron is only a top 5 sophomore player... That seriously shows how underrated he is.

i know it makes me look like a bitter Mavs fan but why in the hell is Wade getting credit for holding the Heat together w/o Shaq when their roster is pretty damn good and he plays in the East?

oh another name to throw out their as being underrated is Jr Smith. I know the Kid has had a questionable past with the hornets. But he can play hoops with the best of them.

Sorry, i actually just made a mistake on that one.

He's without a doubt top 3. I would put him 2nd after Chris Paul. And im positive that most people would have him in their top 3.

Both.

Homers overrate him big time.

Haters underrate him big time.

Then you have those who are neither homers nor haters who appreciate him for exactly what he is.

thats interesting, I agree with you though on your assessment though. I personally cannot stand him for that infamous day in Vail Colorado. I know if i did something like that I'll be behind bars for a long time.
