Most Underrated NBA Players

The Top Ten
1 Ray Allen Walter Ray Allen, Jr. is a former American professional basketball player who is currently a free agent.

everybody sees other players but if I look at ray allen, he's just as or more competitive than most nba stars..

great talent coupled with discipline and smarts. just a class act.

Best three point shooter ever! And is very clutch like in game 6 of the finals

he is the best 3 point shooter carmelo is not over rated

2 Manu Ginobili Emanuel David "Manu" Ginóbili is an Argentine professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association.

Best shot faker ever james harden can't eurostep better than my man manu

He is not only underrated in the NBA, he is also underrated for the team, where he just play an average 28 minutes per games. He is also a top ten in 48 min stats, was on the top of the list when the season started. I give my vote to Ray Allen and Kevin Martin too.

He lays himself very low, so as the whole spurs team. As others said, a great player is who steps up in final minutes, you can find most times, manu was handling the ball at those time, coach know who is the best option to make those plays.

Manu is really good maybe the best clutch player in the league

3 Paul Pierce Paul Anthony Pierce is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.

May not be some superstar like a Lebron, Kobe, or Durant. But when the time calls he's clutch! 9 time all star, and NBA finals MVP. He is nothing short of a true basketball player.

He might not be Kobe or Lebron, but neither is anyone else. This guy doesn't get the respect he deserves.

for sure watched him play alone for years. now he can shine and shine he will. 2008 Finals MVP. 4-9-08 - madmadworld

Well he's underrated because he's unlikable. - RobertWisdom

4 Chris Bosh Christopher Wesson Bosh is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association.

Chris Bosh is really a star. He is very underrated cause nobody cares about him. People are too focused on lebron and wade but honestly, bosh really deserves a spotlight in miami well lebron and wade took it all.

He has maybe the second best mid range jump shot in the league

People that play with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade tend to get underrated.

One of the greatest power forwards ever - 2storm

5 J.R. Smith Earl Joseph "J. R." Smith III is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association.

He is so good and doesn't get any credit for it

Jr smith is a bum. He squanders his talent so much

6 Michael Redd

Fantastic scorer when he was with the Bucks but barely ever considered great because of the small city.

The most underrated player in history had a very good 5 year span someone in 2005/06 didn't make the all star game averging 25 points a game.

Great at OSU but everybody forgot about him after injuries. All that aside he's a well rounded player that can score when needed.

7 Steve Nash Stephen John Nash, is a Canadian retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association.

Steve nash is a good role player right now in his career because he can still shoot and pass

He is not underrated. He has 2 back to back mvp awards that he shouldn't have gotten. He's overrated

Overrated actually - RobertWisdom

History Books.

8 Chris Paul Christopher Emmanuel Paul is an American professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association.

No he is not rondo is the most underrated player in the nba, rajon is the best on his team, he is the most underrated because of his jumper that is the main reason why he is the most underrated player and he also keeps his team together. Nobody will be more underrated then rondo. PERIOD

Chris paul is never a big factor on the highlight reels but he is a good set up man and can shoot and is a good ball handler and a lockdown defender

Chris paul is a top 20 player all time. check out his advanced stats and compare them to other point guards.

Advanced stats show he's a top 10 player of all time

9 Rudy Gay Rudy Carlton Gay Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association.
10 Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Kyam Anthony is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

Best offensive player in the NBA in my opinion. Plus he had real footwork and plays decent perimeter defense even though he never fills out stat sheets.

Great one-on-one scoring ability. Can finish both from inside an outside.. But he never had a good couple of people around him to max his potential..

Carmelo's a boss but trust me he's not underrated at all he plays for NY!

Melo is 0ne of the greatest SF because he has a great jump shot better jump shot than LeBron

The Contenders
11 Tim Duncan Timothy Theodore "Tim" Duncan is an American professional basketball player who has played his entire career for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association.

He is probably a top 10 player of all time, but not too many people recognize him as one.

Just saying, he's like 6th on best nba players ever.

Not underrated at all.

He is overrated

12 Ben Gordon

This dude is a beast! Not only is he great shooting the 3, but he can shoot two's, and layup as well giving his game more depth then being a linear player. He's a great leader and scorer. Need proof? Go to YouTube and find his footage against the Celtics in '09 when he was a Bull.

Mobile players can't build

13 John Wall Johnathan Hildred Wall Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Washington Wizards of the National Basketball Association.

John Wall is the best all around point Guard in my opinion. I mean how does team USA pass him up for Damien Lillard, Steph Curry, and Kyrie and he can score easily when he rebounds or steals the ball and just pushes the ball with his quickness.

John Wall deserved to be the 1st pick overall he just started getting recognition but before nobody ever talked about his scoring and his excellent passing.

14 Richard Hamilton

Great on both sides of the court. One of the best coming off screens!

This is the best shooter in the league, hands down. - gotdamnnnn

No one noticed him

15 Kevin Martin Kevin Dallas Martin, Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association.

Personally one of my fave players in the league to watch. The guy is so efficient on the offensive end and is really a top 5 scorer in the league right now. That is how good he really is as he can score in so many different ways yet never gets the credit he deserves.

On another note, I don't see how Paul could be underrated lol, every single person knows how good he is. But I do agree with the other ones ahead of K-Mart though those are arguable - ColdJ3

this guy has the potential to be a prolific scorer and he doesn't say much about it he goes out and does his job. he is the NBA version of Andre Johnson

Has the potential to by far be one of the top 10 scorers in the league at the very least. A strong jump shot and his free throw shooting and layups are phenomenal as well

Kevin martin is sorta a forgotten player

16 Dirk Nowitzki Dirk Werner Nowitzki is a German professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.

He is a top 5 power forward of all time and is really good at offense and defense

Dirk barely misses free-throws! HES #1!

One a championship with a very mediocre team. You can't say that about any other player in the modern era.

The best sharpshooter of all time

17 Kyle Lowry Kyle Lowry is an American professional basketball player for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association.
18 Terrence Ross

He should be getting way more playing time and maby he would shine as a star.

19 Al Jefferson

Al Jefferson should play for a different team. He is not doing anything at defense and he is doing a little bit good at offense. That is why he should not play for the Utah Jazz. - hosseinshobeiry

20 Hassan Whiteside Hassan Niam Whiteside is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the National Basketball Association.

He doesn't get enough credit for his blocks and rebounding. He really should.

21 Gerald Wallace

Amazing defensively, his offensive game has transformed and he is straight out all hustle. The guy is a beast on both ends of the floor and doesn't give up on a game.

22 Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler III is an American professional basketball player for the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association. Born in Houston, Butler grew up in Tomball, Texas.

Nope. Overrated. And his face looks like something off a Totem Pole. - RobertWisdom

He ugly

BEAST

Ugly guy

23 Stephen Jackson

Stephen Jackson Is On Golden State A Very Bad Team Thats Why He Is Underrated He Should Be Moved To A Better Team Like Orlando

24 Andre Iguodala Andre Tyler Iguodala is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.
