Default Is Shawn Marion the most overrated player in the league or what?

I don't remember the last time he did anything good in the playoffs.

Odom just owns him every single time. I remember what Bruce Bowen did to him a few years ago, I don't think Marion even averaged 10 ppg that series.
Even his defense is overrated. The Suns aren't stopping anyone.
Guys like Kobe drive on him. Guys like Odom post him up. Guys like Duncan...eh, don't even to there.
So, he can guard all positions...yay. Well, there's a big difference between CAN and DOES.

Another thing is that he's an all star but I don't see that star in him. He doesn't play like a star player at all. He needs playmaking, he can't create his own shot, he mostly scores on putbacks, alleyoops and stuff like that.
He's a great rebounder and runs the floor like a deer...I will give him that.

But he's mighty overrated. I remember a few years ago when everyone on ISH claimed he was the most underrated player that gets no respect etc..

But what now? He still cries for his respect every damn day yet he just isn't so good.

For some reason, I hate him. He's so phucking overrated, it's disgusting.

Not according to him.

Yes, he is overrated. It's amazing how fast he went from being underrated to overrated. I want him gone. I'm tired of watching him hoist 3's and take stupid runners that have no chance of going in.

For me it's a lifetime of watching his struggles in the playoffs. You can't count on the guy. I've been one of the biggest Marion defender here, but now I am to the point where I am sick of his offensive liabilities, and his ego. I hope he plays well, and I'll root for him till the end, but my opinion of him has changed.

Umm, I've said it times and times again that I hate him.

Dig my posts under Soccer10 username if you want.

And it's not one game. Read the post. Dude is the ultimate playoff choker from what I've seen, he's an overrated defender and his style of play is ugly and can't really be considered a style of a star because stars are something else. Marion doesn't play like a star, not at all. Yet he's been an all star 4 times, right?

Why? Josh Howard knows how to play half-court playoff basketball and can create his own shot, unlike Marion.

Marion is more talented and athletic than Howard no doubt but Howard is the better basketball player.

Because Josh Howard has the one of the worst basketball IQ's in the league, especially to end games. Marion can still play more players on defense, and he can play PF. Josh can't.
