WTF? Horry? Battier?

I think Battier's underrated if anything, and Horry's in the twilight of his career. I do agree with Wade and Yao Ming being overrated though. I'm a bit mixed on Marion because he is underrated, but he overrates himself too much by asking for too much money.

Battier?

wtf?

He's a defensive player, a 3 point shooter and a role player...he's not out there to score or rebound

Another wtf with Horry

the other 3 he got right

Battier? Proof the writer of this doesn't know about Basketball. If anything, "glue" guys like Battier need more credit. Honestly, Battier isn't a Superstar and no one claims he is one.

I don't think Yao Ming is overrated. Why don't they have guys like Vince Carter or something on that list. Either way, at least someone finally exposed Dwyane Wade. Seems a little too late now though since he's playing great in the Olympics.

How are any of them overrated??

Yao ok maybe a little, but when he is healthy he is still good.

Real overrated player - Steve Nash [let's be real, he was good, but never worthy of either MVP he got, Shaq should have had it first time for turning the Heat around, and Kobe second time for one of the most amazing individual seasons ever]

Battier is overrated.

He was traded for Rudy Gay for crying out loud.

His defense is also overrated by NBA fans. Mainly from the game where Kobe shot poorly on the national televised game on ABC.

I also agree with Yao being overrated.

It depends on how you rate Wade. If you compare him to MJ or say he is better than Kobe, then yes he is overrated.

Horry is definitely overrated. When you have some people saying that Horry is a HOFer, then you know something is wrong.

Some of the above mentioned in the article are role players. "Overrated" should be applied to the ones with "superstar" status...

PG - Davis
SG - Wade
C - Ming
SF - Carter
PF - Boozer

Any list of overrated players without Vince Carter and Josh Howard in it is garbage...

I agree, especially about VC. He's a great scorer, but what else? What else does he do? He doesn't make his teammates better, he doesn't play defense, he has an attitude. He's an overrated player. If it wasn't for some of his SICK dunks earlier in his career, no one would care about him.

I can see Yao, Wade, Marion.

Battier is underrated.
Horry? I didn't know people were tooting his horn.

Whoever did this is mostly a stats person. Defense, clutch ability, the effect of the player on the team seem not to matter.
