The NBA's Most Underrated Playersravensfan282
The Top Ten
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
People always saw him as "the sidekick" and when he was on the bucks, people just...underrated him.V 8 Comments
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
This guy is the most underrated player in NBA history, by far. He is probably the most underrated player in the entire professional sports history.V 4 Comments
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
Consistently a top player in the league, but no one gives him credit like lebron or kd
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
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
Guy's so underrated.. O CANADAV 2 Comments
He is so good and doesn't get any credit for it
Jr smith is a bum. He squanders his talent so much
Fantastic scorer when he was with the Bucks but barely ever considered great because of the small city.
Great at OSU but everybody forgot about him after injuries. All that aside he's a well rounded player that can score when needed.
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
Great hall of fame no respect
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.
Better than Blake people! Whad'y thinking!V 3 Comments
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
Most People probably don't even know who K-Mart is, yet his stat line is always top 10-20 in the league each yearV 2 Comments
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..
Not really that underrated at all (in my opinion.) - MasonOcker
Melo is 0ne of the greatest SF because he has a great jump shot better jump shot than LeBronV 3 Comments
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
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.
He is probably a top 10 player of all time, but not too many people recognize him as one.
Should be # 1 by far
This is the best shooter in the league, hands down. - gotdamnnnn
No one noticed him
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.
He should be getting way more playing time and maby he would shine as a star.
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
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.
Best European nba player of all time and maybe Europe's best basketball player of all time! His one of the smartest players in the nba history!
He doesn't get enough credit for his blocks and rebounding. He really should.
Pau should at least be in the top five. He's a great player. 7"0' center/power forward with a good fg % he's probably the best underrated
big man of all time.
Pau should be number one! He almost never misses in the paint, and you hear trash about him being 'soft', but he plays well in his so called 'soft' conditions.
I don't watch basketball too much. people say he's amazing that's all I know
The best LeBron defender!
+the kobe stopper
Vote for Jimmy 'G' Buckets (the 'g' stands for gets! )
Joe Johnson is everything
Look at his stats, he used to dominate.
he's got all-star potential. - jwileson
He was the NBA's top scorer in the 80's. He had more career points in the 80's than Larry Bird. He averaged about 28 points every game on a daily basis. He was also a great rebounder and could even pass the ball. He was also a solid defender. HE IS SO UNDERRATED IT MAKES ME ANGRY!
KWAME IS GOD
3.2 point per game and O. O BLOCKS per game. Mugsuy bogus averged more than him.
RONDO IS A STUD! He is a Top 5 point guard, even though so many people hate on him and say he can't shoot! He's not a shooter, but his shot is quite a bit better than it used to be! He is so nice at getting to the run and dropping dimes! GO CELTICS!
This guy is scary with the basketball. I have the most fun watching the Celtics when he is on the floor. - FootballDog61
Triple double machine! 2010's version of fat lever.
There are three NBA players that are way more underrated than they actually are:
1: Rajon Rondo - Averaging close to double digit numbers in both points and assists throughout his career having one of the highest basketball IQs out of the point guards in the NBA and over 5 rebounds to go along with it, he is one of the better point guards in the NBA today. I mean, there has to be a reason why he got to be the starting point guard on a championship team in his rookie season.
2: Alex English - Not much to say about him, besides the fact that he averaged over 25 PPG eight consecutive seasons during his prime. When you think of the top scorers, however, Alex English isn’t one of the players you think of in your kind.
3: Lonzo Ball - This one probably came as a surprise to you, but with everyone saying that he is one of the most overrated NBA players and he can’t shoot, you have to realize that he averages 10, 7, and 7 and became the youngest NBA player to record a triple ...more
Every time I watch the bulls game it's like Captain Kirk with the 3pt attempt a nice three by kinrick
Great clutch player. Led Warriors past Mavericks.
He was LeBron before LeBron was born. Does not get enough credit. And why's Bill Russell higher than him? - hiphopgod
ONLY WILT HAS BETTER STATS THAN ELGIN
Highest single-season scoring average of anybody in NBA history not named Wilt Chamberlain [yes that does include MJ].
He scores 20 points every night and I mean every night he has started like 500 consecutive games
Why is this beast so low - mylesda
I've played with the guy, he is a modest player, don't get on his bad side
In his prime, quite possibly the 4th best big man of all time, behind only Wilt, Kareem, and Bill Russell.
Yes I DO mean he was better than Shaq!
Sad that he could not escape the USSR national team until he was a crippled old man.
