Top Ten Most Overrated NBA Shooting Guards of All-Time

These are players that are just overrated this does not mean they are bad. The criteria for this list will depend on stats, awards, and overall effectiveness of the players. These players might not have the required leadership or maybe that are just plain out bad, but for some reason are called amazing.

The Top Ten

1 Michael Jordan Michael Jordan Michael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player.

This is a tough list. Their are some great players here. Out of respect for your list, I will try to tread lightly... I can see you thinking MJ is over-rated, but just know among my peers, and even a generation on either side of me, this guy is generally considered the GOAT. He was deadly in the clutch. He not only had the best tools, he had the biggest heart. When he defense was questioned, he turned himself into the best defender in the league. - Ned964

Michael Jordan is so overrated. Sure he was amazing player, but the GOAT? I don't think he is that material. One of the only reasons he won a championship was, because of Scottie Pippen and some lucky shots from role players. - 2storm

He's got six championships. The two years he left to play baseball the Bulls didn't win it all. - Ned964

The bulls only won 2 less games without them. Plus, he was a ball hog and he NEVER made his teammates better. Also, he played in an era with 6 expansion teams added so there wasn’t much competition since expansion teams are TERRIBLE in their first few years as a team.

Pf youd be even more triggered once you find out he is the best plpayer off all time. - TristGamer

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

I'll admit he might great at dribbling, but his efficiency was low. I actually think he was the most inefficient player ever. He might up there in the top ten, but definitely not top 5 - 2storm

I think maybe he had the sweetest looking jumper in the game for many years, perfect form and rotation. He was often asked to carry the hold load for some very bad teams, and he happily complied. Yes, he was way cocky, but he was lightning quick, and as you say, he had exceptional handles. - Ned964

3 DeMar DeRozan DeMar DeRozan DeMar Darnell DeRozan is an American professional basketball player for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association.

Derozan is so overrated - 2storm

4 Aaron Afflalo

So overrated all he can do is hit threes - 2storm

5 Jimmy Butler Jimmy Butler

I am just hating on Bulls players. Just kidding. I do think J Butler is overrated just because he is a poor leader. It wasn't because of Butler the Bulls made the playoffs at any time in his career. - 2storm

I haven't seen Butler enough, but now that he plays for my hometown team, I will get a chance to. - Ned964

6 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.

It's true that Kobe was a ball hog for many years, but the man has five rings, and ONE of the deadliest fade away jumpers I've ever seen. I used to try to hate on him, but look at his resume and you will surely see he's among the best ever. - Ned964

I put Kobe lower than the others, because he is just a ball hog. If he wasn't a ball hog he would not be on this list. - 2storm

7 Eric Gordon Eric Gordon

So he is on the underrated and overrated list here is why. Early in his career he was so overrated people though he would be the GOAT! But now he is underappreciated currently. - 2storm

8 J.R. Smith 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 sorta overrated. - 2storm

9 Jordan Clarkson Jordan Clarkson
10 Austin Rivers

Just because he is doc's son does not mean he is good - 2storm
