Default Players you feel are overrated and why

Marcus Camby- Yes he puts up great rebounding, assist and block numbers but is he really that good of a defender? He won the Defensive Player Of The Year award but I think that is just because people fell in love with his blocked shot numbers. There is no way he is a better defender than Tim Duncan. Don't get me wrong Camby is a great player to have on your team but he did not deserve that DPOY award and it looks like he is getting another undeserved one this year.

Baron Davis- He has one good playoff series and everyone is acting like he is a superstar. People forget he is a chucker who 41% for his career with a couple of seasons under 40% and a career high of just under 44%. Yeah he is a good passer and he can score in bunches but he is not a superstar.

Camby isn't a great man defender, so i hear you there... i can't agree with you about baron davis though. when healthy he's a legit superstar imo.

I'm going to get flamed, but everyone is overating Brandan Roy this season. He hasn't improved that much from last season (in some areas having worse numbers), and people hail him as him being the sole factor to Portlands sucess.

Lebron James-Sorry, but's Lebron James is overrated when it comes to being compared to Michael Jordan...


Kobe Bryant-Overrated player;Not really the best player, but still a Top 5 player in the League...is in the Top 5 with Lebron.


funny, because those are one of my two favourite players.

Nah, Kobe's offence is overrated, though underrated on defence. Everyone constantly says Kobe can take over a game whenever he wants, and score at will. Yet all I see is a guy who shots a lot of shots at a low percentage. Though his defence is amazing, don't think he gets enough praise and I can't believe people complain about his All Defensive team selections.

Every great scorer takes a lot of shots. You kinda have to shoot the ball to score. And it isn't like a 46% shooter who shoots 10 times a game could double his shots and be Kobe Bryant.

And he's shot above 45% the last three seasons. For a guy who takes- and makes a lot of threes- and also gets to the FT as much as just about anyone in the game, that's not low percentage.

Tracy McGrady
Kevin Durant


and if you're calling baron davis overrated you better be basing that on the fact that he's had injuries and is not always focused/committed. If you think his ability is overrated or his talent, you need to be checked into a looney bin.

Default Re: Players you feel are overrated and why

There's several overrated players in this league reasons that Vary.

McGrady is a great scorer and offensive player but overrated in a sense that he can't take his team past the first round.

Dirk in a sense that he is more one dimensional that people think. This isn't even about the choking.

There's more too....

Who said anything about his talent? I said he is overrated and by that I mean his production most seasons. He does not play like a superstar usually. He'll have a superstar game once in a while but he does not usually play like one.
