    Nba Logo 10 Most Overrated

    Dont take this list seriously. I just made it real quick, with controversial intentions.

    1. kevin garnett - great player, but not top 5. Versatile defender, but not the best low post defender. Shoots too many jumpshots, needs to post up more
    2. Yao Ming - Very good center but injury prone, not as good defensively and on the boards as he could be.
    3. Steve Nash - great player on offense, great passer...at his best he was maybe an average defender.
    3. Tmac - Great player but hes injured all the time
    4. Lebron james - top 3 player in the league...no post game, not the best shooter
    5. David Lee - Gets rebounds stolen from him, gets his shot blocked a lot
    6. Dirk Nowitzki - one of the best power forwards but doesnt have much inside game
    7. Rajon rondo - No jumpshot, no confidence in his jumper
    8. zach randolph - very good stats. No defense
    9. Tony parker - not a good defender
    10. Greg olden - looks old, injury prone

    AI isn't overrated. He averaged like 27 points last season, on that Nuggets team where most of the team is looking to score. He is an underrated passer, and he still has the sickest crossover in the league.

    i think the most overrated player in the nba is Arenas he's a good player but not as good as advertised he has a sick shoot but not the best percentages bad shot selection and injury prone to be considered elite i honestly think Harris is better

    there is no way lebron is over-rated. He got cavs to the finals with a **** team, and have u watched the cavs this season?

    The man just takes over games and is unstoppable.

    His game is not for the post anyway, he is a driver and a playmaker, who can fall back on his shot which isn't bad.

    He is currently the best player in the league, along with Kobe, and Paul

    i do think lebron is a little bit overrated but hes still a great player, top 3 in the game right now in my opinion. His weaknesses are overlooked...but it dont matter, although i dont like him i would love to have him on the knicks.

    AI is far and away the most overrated player in the NBA. Scoring a lot of points isn't worth a darn thing if your FG% is average or below average. In fact, if your FG% is below average, you are actually hurting your team by taking a lot of shots and scoring a lot of points. AI has a ton of talent, but he and his teams would be way better off if he scored 15-20 points per game and his FG% was closer to 50%. It's no accident that Denver got a lot better when Billups went there and the Pistons got worse when AI went there. AI is WAY more talented than Billups, but Billups is the smarter, more efficient, and better player. AI is like Marbury on speed. Both are very talented but neither knows how to play basketball properly.

    The most underrated player in the NBA right now might be Dwayne Wade. I know that's kind of funny because he's already considered one of the best, but IMO the debate over who the best player in the NBA is should be between Wade, James, and CP3, and not Bryant and James or Bryant and CP3 or Bryant and anyone else. Wade is either #1 or #2.

    Bryant is among the most talented (maybe the most), but he's not nearly as efficient as those other guys. They play the game better than he does.

    So not having a 3 point shooter makes you overrated?
    Some of the greatest players to ever play the game were horrible behing the 3 point line. Need to remind you that he single handedly beat the Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals?
