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

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

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

Best ever? Not even the best of his generation KD and Curry all the way.

9 Derrick Rose Derrick Rose Derrick Martell Rose is an American professional basketball player for the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association.

Plays to fast and out of control.

10 Vince Carter

The Contenders

11 Greg Oden Greg Oden
12 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!

No top 5 player wins 67 games in a reg season, has the number one seed, and loses to the 8th seed in 6 games. that's smells of overratedness

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

yeah ill give you this one I mean he is not good ne more I mean he is fast but not the best and people talk about him like he can really play ball also vince carter should be 2nd I mean he is the same with allen they use to be good but not ne more - ballaboi17

14 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.

15 Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Kyam Anthony is an American professional basketball player for the New York Knicks of the National Basketball Association. V 2 Comments
16 Kyle Korver Kyle Korver Kyle Elliot Korver is an American professional basketball player for the Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association.
17 Andrew Bynum
18 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

20 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
