Top Ten Most Overrated Athletes

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Carlos Zambrano

He's always talkin' about how he's gonna win 20 games and win the Cy Young and saying the Cubs are gonna win the world series. The only problem with him saying those things is he's not that good, and the cubs are never going to win a world series because they're to busy worrying about goats and Steve Bartman!

Everyone's always talking about how he's going to win 20 games and win the Cy Young every year. Well every year comes and goes and he doesn't win 20 or the Cy Young like he promised. He usually ends up with an ERA around 4. 00 too.

82Gilbert Arenas

He has great players such as Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler, the very few games that he does play, but he plays like he is the only player on the team that could score the ball. He takes the worst shots and doesn't get the ball to the right players in the right situations.

83Justin Morneau

I don't know, I think he pretty much earned every accolade he ever got. Not a Hall of Famer but a good solid player and I think that was always his reputation. One of the better Canadian baseball players ever, and you'll never meet a nicer guy.

84Alexander Ovechkin

Ovechkin should be in the top 5! Have you seen him how he pathetically celebrates after scoring ONE GOAL! It's just plain ridiculous! And he's a puck hog too, because he was the NHL's leading scorer after about 10 games he had 23 goals and 6 assists! He didn't deserve any medal at the Olympics whatsoever.

85Wayne Gretzky

A shifty, open ice, one-way player. His team mates did the hard work so he could do what he did so well- pad his stats. Employed goons as personal- not team- protectors, and refs looked the other way when he slashed and hooked opponents. Should have retired five years early.

86Odell Beckham, Jr.Odell Beckham Jr. is a NFL wide receiver, playing for the New York Giants. He is most-known for making an incredible one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys.

Hey, people who judge catches! Look at Max McGee's TD One-handed Sleep-Deprived In-front-of-a-fast-safety catch!

Never heard of the guy, he makes one catch and is the most popular player in the NFL

Finally. I was waiting for this. OBJ is WAY overrated. I mean seriously? He made one catch (which I have to admit, was pretty awesome). But other than that, he's just your average wide reciever!

87Darren Sharper

Overhyped as an safety in Green Bay, even though he was always getting burned whenever he tried to tackle a wideout. The Packer's defense improved the moment he was cut.

Always thought he was at least a good guy, but that sure didn't turn out to be true.

88Dale Thomas
89Lennox Lewis
90Jimmy Rollins

Other than his MVP season in '07, J-Roll only hit 20 homers in a season once, 20, and he never batted. 300 in his career. Matt Holliday should've won the MVP that year anyways

91John Terry

Simply a joke
Some claim he's among the best few defenders in the world - dudemar

92Blake Griffin

Has expanded his game but talks to the ref way too much. Quit complaining and you won't give up a 20+ lead in the 4th quarter.

93Jeremy LinJeremy Shu-How Lin is an American professional basketball player for the Charlotte Hornets of the National Basketball Association.
94Rocky Marciano

Very overrated. Fought a bunch of stiffs past their primes.

95Dez BryantDesmond Demond "Dez" Bryant Sr. is an American football wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.
96Serena Williams
97Jerome James

He has got to be the worst centers to recieve any credit whatsoever in nba history. Everytime I see some clown say he is the greatest b-ball player of all time I die a little inside. And yes there are people who think that just go to the greatest basketball player section. He is a major underrachiever and one of the many mistakes made by isaih with the knicks.

98Gheorghe Hagi
99Andy Roddick
100Barry Hall

Big bad barry is only good at punching people. he can't kick straight, he gives away penalties and he's a slow runner. well, the got the bad part right. - CrowdedChisel
