Well then you have a short memory, or haven't been a basketball fan more than a couple years if you think Baron has had one good series.

Has a low assist average compared to other star guards but I cant say his passing skill is any less. Spurs have a lot of team ball movement

Considering he was voted in as a starter of the all-star game, I dont think there's any shortage of people who are overrating him.

Those Hornet teams were scary. As a Pistons fan I was thankful for injuries and Vertigo.

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.

I agree with Camby. DPOY and the Nuggets are one of the worst defensive teams?

About Baron I guess it depends on who you feel is overrating him. This guy didn't even get voted in to be an all star and some might say he is being underrated for that. I'd say he is neither.

AI = overrated. You have guys considering him in the top 10 easy, an ASG starter . What exactly does he do that makes him worthy of this? This man is the definition of a chucker. Half the time he drives to jump into people and get cheese calls. Defensive liability. Puts up thirty or so shots a night even if he is bricking 75%.

others...

I have watched basketball since I was 6. Huge Ewing and John Starks fan back then. Baron if I recall got to the second round a couple of times in Charlotte but I don't remember him doing anything special. That team had a lot of talent too.

Rasheed Wallace isn't even good as people harp about . They talk more about his potential then what he does now.He hasn't utilized his skills in 10 years so the potential is out the window. He can't/won't ever be in Garnett/Duncan ,not even on his best streak of games.To me thats like saying Zach Randolf has potential if he worked himself into shape,too irrelevant using "potential" as a claim to greatness or using it as a plus.

Mike Miller
Joe Johnson
are some other ones

And starface yoy say Baron Davis shouldn't be labeled overrated due to injures but then you go and name Wade and McGrady.

I cant say Kobe is overrated, he is the third finest offensive practitioner I have ever seen. Only Jordan and Bird seem to me have been better on the offensive end.

To me
