Pretty good, although I'm not sure how underrated Allen is. I like the choice of Scott, he was a big-time scorer in Phoenix and then a champion in Boston.

Someone else: Walter Davis, maybe in place of Allen. He was an athletic greyhound, a clutch shooter, and he earned the nickname "The Man with the Velvet Touch" for his soft stroke. In his first three NBA seasons, he posted the following numbers:

24.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.4 steals, .526 FG, .830 FT

23.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.9 steals, .561 FG, .831 FT

21.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.5 steals, .563 FG, .819 FT

For a jump-shooting swingman to shoot Amare Stoudemire field goal percentages is phenomenal.

L Kizzle I want to thank you for putting Jesus Shuttlesworth on that list...I always thought of him as underrated as well...Back in his Milwaulkee days, he carried the bucks to the eastern conference finals, and even though they lost, I didnt think he got the credit he deserved as leader...Ray Allen also took the sonics to the western conference semi finals, but was eliminated by the spurs...People seem to have forgotten that...I think that series would have went longer but I saw that last play in game 6 as a foul on Tim Duncan, but Ray got no call...Donaghy must was officiating that game...Ray may be underrated, but he is still one of the best...

PG- Maurice Cheeks, One time all-time assist and steals leader.

SG- Alex English, top five SG in the eighties. (Name me six SG better than him in that era)

SF- Julius Erving, Yeah I said it. Seeing all these nostalgic threads leads me to beleive that todays basketball fans don't know how great of a scorer he is. For some people to even consider Pippen to be just as good makes me think underrated. I'd say the undisputible 2nd best SF of all time.

PF- Elvin Hayes, The best PF in the 70's. Anchored a succesful bullets team in an era where there were a ton of competative big men.

C- Dave Cowans, Picture Ben Wallace and how he battled Shaq. A little mismatched physically. Picture him getting an upper hand. Now picture that scenario with Ewing, D.Rob, Hakeem, and Alonzo all in their prime. That's what Cowns had to put up with when he battled Moses, Kareem, Wilt, Thurmond, Unseld and other dominating centers, and still managed a couple of championships and an MVP.

Scottie Pippen, would have been #1 on most other teams at the time.

True, but not championship calibre teams as a number 1 option.

C-Artis Gilmore(One of the greatest ABA players, and was one of those players that you could put in any era, and he would probably dominate)
PF-Dennis Rodman(Talent/Success overshadowed by off-court issues)
SF-Rick Barry(One of the greatest scorers of all-time, arguably a top 20 player of all-time)
SG-Sidney Moncrief(One of the greatest defensive non big's of all-time)
PG-Jerry West(Not actually a pg, but he gets severely underrated by a lot of fans. On Ish top 100, he's 11th, on that european guy's top 50 list from a few days ago, he was 21st. In my opinion, he's a top 7/8 player of all-time)
