Top 10 Most Overrated NBA Players of All Time
LeBron has been in the league long enough that most fans weren't around when he was known as a choker whose all time peak was Dr. J till he started winning. He's obviously come a long way and I'd still say he's top 3 but younger fans and the media deify him as the goat with poor logic
Lebron James, the most overrated players in this era. Imagine that Kobe playing with KG and T-Mac in his prime, easy huh? This is just what Lebron did. And he was playing in east conference if you know what it mean. But what the F... this boy left Miami after terribly defeat by Spurs? Knowing that D-Wade starting physically decline? Yeah...act like he's trying bring one champ for Cleveland. They got Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, again, another big 3! You still think he's one of greatest players? Take a look about what he been through. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP!
I gotta say that, those media like ESPN overdeify Lebron badly. He is good player but never close to the top tier players like MJ. And slightly worse than those underrated players like TD.
19 years as a professional basketball player but still airballs free throws & continues to "Travel" & flop on games! Pathetic!
Selfish selfish selfish
Flash-in-the-pan, got a string of wins against sad sack teams. Whoopee.
His 2011 season is nice but it's not an all time great season. He doesn't deserve to go to the HoF and no, he was not on a top 5 PG ever trajectory before his injuries
If he never got injured he'd potentially be one of the best of all time. Like top 15 probably.
Plays too fast and out of control.
When he drives, people step out of the way. The person who made this list is probably like a Clippers or Hawks fan, because most of the people on this list are very good players. And those teams haven't been doing too well lately, so he/she is salty.
Wow what a snake he left lebron to suffer wow what a prick wow now he doesn't even like the celtics anymore wow this is not so epic gamer moment wow.
People just cannot stop putting him in the top 5. Kobe's efficiency is way worse than mj or lebron, he averaged 25ppg 5 rpg and 4 apg on 44.7 percent shooting with a per of 22.9. He's also only won 1 mvp in 2008 which he didn't deserve, lebron and Dwight Howard had way better efficiency than Kobe did and he even Chris Paul was snubbed as he had a double double in points and assists
He isn't as clutch as people say and even though he hit some very difficult shots, he has lost a ton of them too. He most generally isn't the goat, just as he isn't the 2nd best player of all time. A guy who won 5 championships, not being the best player of the team in 3 of them can't be called a top 2 player. He also was extremely inefficient and a terrible teammate. Personally I think he is a top 5 player all time just not top 2.
He is the most overrated player of all time. His career field goal percentage is 45%. His clutch percentage is around 32%. He has always been surrounded by great players during his championship runs. When he wasn't, his team missed the playoffs.
Very, very overrated. He might of got 81 points once, and I respect that, but he's only won 1 MVP. Michael Jordan won about 5 and Kobe is more overrated than him!
An inefficient shot chucker who is immortalized due to the 2001 season where he shouldn't have won MVP over Shaq. He "dragged" an elite defensive team to the finals, a team that had the DPOY, 6MOTY, and COTY by the way. The refs helped push him there too. Take away that season and there's virtually nothing to go off of. Not top 50 all time
If he would actually practice he could have become a good player. Now he is not even a top fifty player.
Could dunk and block and not much else. 42 percent from the line. Really?
He sucks. Should have retired after the dunk contest years ago
He's trash compared to Lebron. For sure not one of the greats. Only bandwagoners like him. And no, I'm not a Lebron or Cavs fan. I'm a Lakers fan. Just dumb always running into people who say Steph is the greatest of all time.
The warriors are good, not Curry. Also, chefs don't play basketball
MJ is the GOAT. Yes, you can say what you want like the 90's teams were overrated and he had help but EVERY all time great has had help. MJ had Scottie Pippen, Phil Jackson, Dennis Rodman, and Horace Grant. Magic Koh son had Kareem and Worthy. LeBron James had Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, and Shane Battier. Wilt Chamberlain had help from Jerry West, Kareem Abdul Jabbar had help from Magic, Worthy, and Oscar Robertson, Oscar Robertson had Kareem, Jerry West had Elgin Baylor and Wilt Chamberlain, Tim Duncan had Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, David Robinson, and Manu Ginobli, Shaq had Kobe and Dwayne Wade, Kobe had Shaq, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum, and Lamar Odom, Julius Erving had Moses Malone and vice versa. Hakeem Olajuwon was the only player to not have help because no one good beat him and the Magic weren't that good and even so he had Clyde Drexler. Garnett, Pierce, and Allen had each other. Stephen Curry had Draymond Green, Iguodala, and Klay Thompson. Isiah Thomas has Joe ...more
Take away Scottie Pippen and he has no titles! Did not win until Scottie Pippen came and Phil Jackson took over as coach.
He had scottie pippen and phil jackson on his team. He also got swept in the first round without those two.
All great players who won championships had help from all star teammates.
amazing defender, arguably the best of all time, but his poor offensive ability is too much to overlook in my opinion. the only reason I say he is overrated because people say he is a top 5 or even top 3 player of all time
The only thing he is good at is getting fouled. And making his beard look perfect.
Flops bad on d... take away free throws and he averages 20 a game. Good but not mvp
Travels, flops to get foul calls, and still he doesn't even shoot good percentages, takes way to many contested threes
He sucks. He can't even make a shot
Overrated as crap can't even make a shot to save his life.
Avg 13 point and 10 rebounds for career-? Not Hall of Fame numbers?
Did have 1 good year (resulting in (Teamwork Championship)
Gets NBA credit for his college years.
How can a guy who is 7-6 average just 9.2 rebounds and 1.9 blocks throughout his career? Dennis Rodman was 6-7 and averaged 13.1 rebounds for his career. The only reason he was so good was because of his height.
He was so trash! I don't even know how or why he is in the hall of fame.
This man is so bad. His height is it really
He is tall, that is all.
Overhyped to the point where he is only for use as children's entertainment.
He was just big, he had no skills, if he had got sick and lost weight they would have kicked him out of the league
To people who do not play basketball, dirk is underrated. But to people who know how to play basketball, he is completely overrated. He got hot one postseason and won the finals. Other than that, he is just good at recieving votes telling him he is great, but his performance on the court tells a different tell. Great on offense, weak on defense and rebounding. I personally never seens a 7 footer weaker on defense and rebounding than dirk other than yao.
Dirk is not overrated or so is every superstar. His best help was Jason Terry and Shawn Marion. That was his team besides him. He got beat in a rigged 2006 finals. Look at his competition:Shaq, Dwyane Wade, and the Heat. Then the Heat in the big 3 era. All other champions didn't carry trash to the playoffs for an entire career
All Dirk was really good at was recieveing votes saying he was a great player (mainly because white people are majority voters) 7ft, can't avg 10 rpg, an acceptable passer, a liability of defense his whole career, but he was great at scoring. An average two way (plays good on defense and offense) PF is better than dirk. KG, barkely, karl malone, tim duncan, Chris Webber, Kevin Mchale, are all better than dirk. Dirk was so brilliant offensively he is a top 10 pf of all time, but some.of these list got him as high as three which is insane.
One the most overrated players in the history of the nba! His scoring numbers wouldn't be that impressive if not for 3pt line and phantom foul calls resulting in undeserved free points!
