122Dion Phaneuf

HORRENDOUS D-MAN! Now making $7,000,000 per season.

123Tajh Boyd
124Anna Kournikova

She was once voted as one of sports biggest flops or something like that. She should be in the Top 10 though you have to catch people's attention as an athlete before getting voted as an overrated one. She was more like a pinup girl.

She could play tennis, won some doubles titles but her image made her much more famous than her actual game. I'm surprised shes this low.

Unbelievably overrated in every single way. And that attitude of hers. Ugh No thanks.

125Jack Wilshere
126Dale Earnhardt Jr.Ralph Dale Earnhardt Jr., known professionally as Dale Earnhardt Jr., Dale Jr., or just Junior, is an American professional stock car racing driver and champion team owner.

Dale Jr is a terrible driver. If he was so good where are all of his wins?

Dale earnhardt Jr is a good NASCAR driver.

127Saku Koivu
128Zdeno Chara
129Ty Dillon
130Paul Scholes

Unbelievably overrated by fellow players and fans alike. Not even close to the level of English footballing legends like Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, yet held in the same regard. Always baffles me totally. If Gerrard had the team that Scholes had round him he'd have won a scary amount more. Just looking at Frank's goals from midfield and also how he is still playing today shows how much better they both were than the slightly above average Paul Scholes. Even looking at individual attributes of the three. There are very few categories which Steven Gerrard does not top and also very few where Paul Scholes does top them.

131Magic JohnsonEarvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. is a retired American professional basketball player who played point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association for 13 seasons.
132Phil Kessel
133O.J. Simpson

Out of 11 years in the nfl, OJ had 5 years with 1000 + yard seasons and only 2 seasons with more than 10 touchdowns. You can argue that the league had 14 games a team but if people claim OJ is so good, then why would 2 games even make a difference
