You think leBron is overrated have you seen this guy stephen curry

He is not trash! Best player in the league rn and it will stay that way till he retires. Only better players were Jordan, Kobe, & Larry Bird. - Zakattack2

Boi LeBron got ass kicked in the 2015 finals and people still think he's better hell naw

Ya he lost because his two best teammates were injured and he was playing with an unorganized team that was just put together against 3 all stars. Look at HIS stats from that finals. - willkotheimer1

He’s the reason the Cavs has a lot of bandwagon fans. He sucks too. I don’t get how being called “The King” will get you so many fans - KingSlayer93316

The Contenders

11 Dirk Nowitzki Dirk Nowitzki

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.

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!

A rookie stoped him before lol

He can shoot. He is tall. That�'s all. And some people consider him the second best PF of all time...For me, the most overrated basketball player ever.

Lebrun sucks even more but he sucks to

13 Greg Oden Greg Oden
14 Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant Kobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. Kobe Bryant has won 5 NBA championships with the Lakers and is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history.

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!

Too much publicity, he is great player but not in the top 10 greatest of all time

THAT'S ALL HE DOES IS SHOOT!

15 Vince Carter Vince Carter Vincent Lamar "Vince" Carter is an American professional basketball player for the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association.
16 Andrew Bynum
17 Bill Walton

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.

18 Stephen Curry Stephen Curry Wardell Stephen Curry II is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. Many players and analysts have called him the greatest shooter in NBA history. He is one of the most beloved, as well as hated, stars in the NBA today.

Blew a 3-1 lead by himself

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. - Tommy_99

19 Allen Iverson Allen Iverson Allen Ezail Iverson is an American retired professional basketball player who played for 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association.

20 Bill Laimbeer
21 Magic Johnson Magic Johnson Earvin "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.

His being a womanizer or not has nothing to do with his basketball skills.

He is the worst because he is a womanizer

What is wrong with you Magic Johnson can:
Play ANY spot on the court
Is excellent on both ends
He is the GOAT of playmaking
there's nothing he can't do in Basketball
He played Center when Kareem was injured and scored 40 points
He has the 2nd highest amount of triple doubles (Oscar Robertson is first)
He is the 2nd or 3rd Greatest Player of All Time

22 Gilbert Arenas Gilbert Arenas
23 Shaquille O'Neal Shaquille O'Neal Shaquille Rashaun O'Neal, nicknamed Shaq, is a retired American professional basketball player who is currently an analyst on the television program Inside the NBA.

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

24 David Robinson David Robinson David Maurice Robinson is an American former professional basketball player, who played center for the San Antonio Spurs in the National Basketball Association for his entire career.
25 James Harden James Harden James Edward Harden, Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

30 Elton Brand
31 Richard Jefferson Richard Jefferson
32 Antawn Jamison
33 Josh Howard
34 Michael Jordan Michael Jordan Michael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player.

Take away Scottie Pippen and he has no titles! Did not win until Scottie Pippen came and Phil Jackson took over as coach.

Plagued against no competition at his position and couldn't win a title until he was surrounded by all stars

All great players who won championships had help from all star teammates.

All great players had help:
MJ from Scottie Pipoen, Phil Jackson, Rodman, and Grant
Magic Johnson from Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Worthy and Pat Riley
Kareem Abdul Jabbar had help from Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson and Pat Riley
Larry Bird had help from Kevin McHale and Robert Parish and Red Auerbach
Bill Russel had help from Bob Cousy and John Havlicek
LeBron James had help from Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, and Shane Battier
Wilt Chamberlain had help from Jerry West and Elgin Baylor
Tim Duncan had help from Gregg Poppvich, David Robinson, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, and Manu Ginobli
Shaq had help from Kobe Bryant and Dwayne Wade, Phil Jackson and Pat Riley
Hakeem Olajuwon had help from Clyde Drexler
Oscar Robertson had help from Kareem
Kobe Bryant had help from Shaq, Phil Jackson. Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol, and Andrew Bynum
Julius Erving had Moses Malone and vics versa, while both also had Mo Cheeks
Jerry West had Wilt Chamberlain and ...more
