Most Overrated NBA Stars TodayNBA is a marketing monster and some of these players just don't deserve the stardom that they have receive from a basketball standpoint.
The Top Ten
Wrong, absolutely wrong. he is one of the most pure offensive threats in the league, can shoot from anywhere with a silky jumper that is also deceptively quick. The only thing that held melo back was melo, he just gave up at a certain point, but initially in the NBA he actually played D and distributed the ball. I Just don't really see how he fits the bill as overrated anymore because nobody really talks about him, I mean he's on the knicks what is there to talk about. he may be overpaid but it's not his fault New York threw all that money at him. I'd like to see him get a second wind before it's all said and done, I know if he was actually surrounded by talent alongside good coaching and attitude he would go back to being one of the best in the current league.
Absolutely agree. Melo plays no D, he is just like James Harden. Lazy on D, and demands the ball constantly. Everyone else just has to stand there and watch him take shots. Then moans when a team mate does the same. When a teammate misses, he complains, when he chucks up a brick, nothing. He just goes back down and does it again. Then complains to his own players for not d'ing up, why he's standing there playing no D at all. I hate watching Melo. The Knicks need to trade him. He is all about himself, not the team. If the team loses, he blames his team and not himself.
This guy stinks, his team stinks, yet he is still the so called "NBA Superstar". I mean there's a guy named Jeremy Lin. When Carmelo had an injury Jeremy Lin replaced him. And whilst Carmelo was gone the team was on a 7-0 streak. And that guy only had 6 minutes of playing time. Which left the New York fan actually hoping that Carmelo will be gone and the team will be better. This is why Carmelo is so overatted
A ball-dominant star who seemingly never won a championship, and a smaller version of Kobe Bryant. Nowadays unnoticed because Phil Jackson shared his opinion of downgrading him.
Shell of the player he used to be
He is not good - 2storm
Dwight is out of his prime
Past his prime! Not good
Wade is a great player but I am getting sick of his acting. He jumps into other players in order to get fouls and when he doesn't get the call he throws a tantrum. It is really childish
D-wade isn't over rated he's one of the best stars ad the I'm sure are then you they on a championship you didn't you don't wanna meet D-wade in a dark alley
Lebron James has carried his team to the playoffs with much less talent around him than Wade, yet the Heat are one of the worst teams in the league... still. - Shakester
In NBA2k 12 his rating is 97 and Michael Jordon was 99 that's unreal
Lebron is really good but putting him over kobe
Good at everything master of nothing, figure out what position you are before you call yourself king.
He's the greatest Small Forward of all time but I can agree with his detractors when they say he has problems. He can often disappear in crucial moments and has not been utilising his jumpshot this year, but he won a ring!
LeBron lays out of games, then expects praise from everyone. No wonder, he makes the finals every year. He's always rested.
He's not in the NBA anymore.
To say Curry has no talent is flatout wrong. Although I certainly agree his skill is clearly not what the media says it is, he lost to Lebron this year
Curry this curry that mostly every golden state "fan" goes for curry he is nothing without the team
All he does is shoot threes and misses most of them people think he's so good but he's not
Bandwagon fans love him. The mouthpiece thing is ridiculous.
What! He's not even famous. In fact he's underrated
One of the worst players in the leauge
Nah, Oliver Miller is the fattest.
The guy is the fattest
Just like Lewis, he's a one-dimensional player that is probably one of the most selfish players in the league. He makes Iverson look like John Stockton. - Shakester
People always talk so much crap about yao he is a god
he's is so overrated, he's just tall. when I see his face, he always has a "duh" look on it!
No he has a good mid range
He is retired you know
I'm sure he would have a lot more votes here, but he is retired now and nobody considered him very good the past few years anyway. But if you look at the list of top players ever, he is listed #3 in the history of the game! That makes him by far the most overrated ever. Overshooting the ball and not getting along with teammates resulted in a lesser career than he could have had. This past Lakers season, in the name of honoring Bryant by trying make him their scorer (he had the NBA's worst shooting percentage among qualified players), was the most egregious example of tanking I've ever seen.
Kobe is like steve novak. He is loved by players b/c he shoots the ball. People say he is top 10 all time while he's not a team player, twice was top 5 in defensive player of the yr voting yet he is like what a 9* all D 1st team. Never shot over 500 in 1 season. Plus he was drafted on to a playoff team and his 1st season was shaqs 1st in LA. He always had big men around him 4 rebounds. Top 20 all time but not top 10
Simply not that great! A very good player, a very selfish persona and a lucky man to have had the best coach and the best players to play with. When I hear he's next to Michael, or that he's top 5 or top 10 all time, makes me puke a little. So disrespectful to all the legends.
The fact that there are actually people who think that Kobe is better than LeBron is enough reason.
Better off aa a street baller
People used to call him a superstar the best player on the hawks I mean he's good but so overrated. People think he was a superstar I just don't understand
A versatile player, but not as good as some lesser names like John Salmons. - Shakester
This fool barely made it to the playoffs and only gets assists for stats which shows because his teammates never scores. He better of in a beard contest than the NBA. - 9713524179
Can't play defense to save his life...
That picture is epic lol - KingSlayer93316
The man made out of glass. Honestly, his failure up to this point is not his fault. Before his knee exploded like a hand grenade, he was gonna win a ring. I think he would have gotten one with the way he played. In my opinion, currently, he's a washed up guard who relies on his terrible jumpshot far too often.
Without Garnett the Wolves would have been a 20 win team every year. Management couldn’t find anybody else who wanted to play there with him. While with the Celtics, he would have won three titles if not for injuries.
He went from someone who couldn't carry his Wolves team to some saying he's one of the best players in history. I like Garnett but if he didn't have Pierce or Allen, he still would be without a ring. - Shakester
Not dominant at his position. would be d'd up by real stars at smaller positions(lbj, durant) - Jumpman23BrooklynNYC
He sucks now
Definitely overrated. Useless on the court
Past his prime and in his prime he was only decent!
God, no. I'm no fan of him or his team but he's the second best Small Forward in the league and got close to leading his team to a championship this year.
Great players can do it on both ends of the court. Magic, Kidd and Payton were all great defenders as well as team players. Nash couldn't defend this chair I'm sitting in. - Shakester
An amazing Point Guard who had bad luck when it came to the NBA Finals, so of course people think he is overrated
He has Vince Carter and Channing Frye on his team and they give credit only to him.
Too old to play like he used to! Get over him! He's about 40!
One of the most inconsistent players ever if not the most! He was good last season but one season doesn’t mean anything
The league is trying to make him a star player, but he just isn't one. He'll suffer the same fate as other combo guards like Luther Head, Quincy Douby or DJ Strawberry. - Shakester
In 2k13 I can sit and drain 3's with him all day, I piss my cousin off cause Kyrie Irving is my main player I think Kyrie is better than Lebron James in 2k13
He’s ruining his career! He can’t even get along with his teammates!
This is stupid he beat the big three in their first year by himself he also has one of the hardest shots to defend. Let's not forget his shooting abilities
He’s the only good one left on the Cavs, in my opinion. I don’t like anyone else - KingSlayer93316
Has improved his passing (although it is still not up to par), is the most athletic player ever and shows real commitment to the game. What's he doing on this list?
Doesn't pass, inconsistent jump shot, and commits too much turnovers.
He'd better played chess instead of basketball because he wouldn't have commited so many TOs if he'd played chess.
Becoming a one-dimensional player and his ball handling or defense hasn't improved. - Shakester
You wanna talk about a product of unearned hype? This is the king of that. Decent guard but he is far from one of the elite guards in the game. I would take Dwayne Wade over him any day who isn't overrated. I would take Rip Hamilton or even Ben Gordon over VC any day. He is very flashy and that is why he is such a big name.
Basically gave up on the Raptors back in the day, but was a beast of a man and played well.
Blake Griffin is not generous and he doesn't share his experience with little children.
I think he should have read books more to understand he is not as good as lebron james, for example.
Being rich does not mean you should consider your talent as the most valuable thing on the planet.
Blake Griffin is very lazy. He broke his arm in order to miss the rest of the season. I think he should have told that he did not want to play to the coach instead of doing such stupid things.
He is totally overestimated because he doesn't use his left hand and he is not black
he uses his left hand only while jerking off
Mozgov is better
Nut busting donkey from Shrek looking bastard.
Agreed. Useless aside from dunks and without Chris Paul he'd be an average Center with a monster dunk
Only good at rebounding.
High IQ and defensive... but no jumper and can't win you the game
What has he accomplished again?
