List some players who you think are overrated and why(list reasons)

- David West
Has no back to the basket game, completely depends on Chris Paul and takes way too many jumpers.

- Anthony Randolph
Gets too much hype, although young he hasn't been much of a factor while playing.

Devin Harris -
Sure he had one good season and made the All-Star team last year, but he shouldn't even be an All-Star.

Hedo Turkoglu -
He's basically living on reputation for hitting clutch shots. His handles are average and he uses his forearm a lot to protect the ball. His best season was like two years ago and since then he's fallen off.

Amar'e Stoudemire -
He plays no defense. I'd say he used to be better than he is now.

so damn true, NO DEFENSE NO POST UP just a product of a system with a guard(who's also basically a product of that system) he basically sucks. the only thing good about him is that he's athletic, but other than that, he fails so bad miserably. He can't even rebound the damn ball, his footwork is mediocre at best, he's basically NOTHING!!

Nowitzki. 


Kidding me? He's probably one of the most UNDERrated players. Look at his stats this year. If he continues at this pace then I'll be suprised if he get's robbed of the MVP.

Obviously, it is arguable that he doesn't have much of a defensive game. But hey, who does nowadays?

Jermaine O'Neal
Andre Kirilenko
Marcin Gortat - Why is this guy getting so much hype?

Call me a hater, but I do think LeBron is overrated. Especially considering the fact that they're claiming he's the best in the league. I mean, the guy is a one dimensional offensive player so far after 6 years and counting in the league. I have no problem saying LeBron is the better player, if I see it. I dont wanna turn this into a LeBron-Kobe debate, so I'll wont post any rebuttals to any disagreements.

Carmelo Anthony
Amar'e Stoudemire
Rasheed Wallace



How is Melo overrated hes a top 5 player today with out a doubt.

But anyway
David west(Just sucks period had one good season two years ago but sucks now.)
Vince Carter(Rarely ever drives now still a good player but shouldnt be a all star game starter
Derek Rose(Hes still young and very talented with a lot of potential but as of right now he isnt playing like a top 5 PG everyone says he is)
Rasheed Wallace(All he can do is shoot he sucks now no D no post game)
KG(at this point in his career he grabs no boards and rarely posts up hes just a very good mid range shooter now with good D)
Rondo(I honestly think hes and avergae PG hes just playing with 3 future HOFwith lots of minutes and the ball in his hands a lot.)
Lamarcus Aldrige(Always seems like hes going to have a breakout season but he just doesnt have it in him to be a true star like some ppl thinks he is)

I definitely agree on Rose, he's a good player but not near CP3 or D-Will as people say he is. Jennings, Westbrook might even turn out better then him.

Rondo is not an average player. He plays fantastic lockdown D, and even gets steals. He also is a very good passer. Not only does he get his assists, but his passes are right on the money. The only thing that I dont like about him, is his offensive game. He has no jumpshot.

Derrick Rose? Come on. He is already one of the best PGs in the game in just his second year. The guy has a great height for a PG, is quick, strong, great passer, great defender... whats not to like? Did you see him go balls out in the Celtics series? How could you say he's overrated? I say he's adequately rated.

I disagree on both players Rondo just fits perfectly with that system thye have in Boston, plays with 3 future HOF, gets so much minutes, and dominates the ball I honestly think you give farmar that much minutes and let him have the ball in his hands that much for 3 seasons and he can be as good or better than Rondo.

D-Rose is a good PG but hes not a superstar player or even all star yet like everyone says he is I think he will be on that level eventually but as of right now this season hes playing terribly and he has no jumpshot at all, yea he played great that series against Boston but that was last yr hes had a better rookie season than sophmore so far.
