Thought it could be fun to make a little debate about this topic. I have been thinking about making this thread for some time now, and it would be cool to see your guys' ideas and opinions.

I will start out with my All-underrated team:

PG: Jrue Holiday and Kyle Lowry

SG: Eric Gordon and Landry Fields

SF: Nicolas Batum and Wilson Chandler

PF: Kevin Love and Paul Millsap

C: Serge Ibaka and Al Horford

Honorable mentions: Arron Afflalo, Andrew Bogut, Luc Mbah a Moute, Ramon Sessions, Nick Young, LaMarcus Aldridge, Roy Hibbert, Chuck Hayes and Luol Deng.

There may be obvious players I forgot, but this is my shot at it! - I will try with the all-overrated team a bit later.

Let the debate begin! Smile

I think Monta Ellis gets the start over EJ for most underrated team.

I'd say the entire Heat roster is overrated. sub .500 against teams with winning records.

Too many stars and not enough telescopes.

I would say J.J Reddick deserves to be on the underrated list. He is the perfect role player. He know his limitations and has a high basketball IQ. I don't understand how Kevin Love can be considered underrated since everyone is praising him. I would not put Love on the overrated list, but his defense is very limited.

I agree lol Brooke Lopez is massively overrated. FUNNY how the team ( Nets ) has put in 1 solid rebounder into the starting rotation, or the rotation in which large minutes are played and Lopez has only managed double digit rebounds as a CENTER I believe only twice this year. Lopez is only good for offense and shot blocking. Being 7' I'd hope he could block shots. How can a guy taht big, getting 8+ boards his 1st 2 years only manage like 5+ a game this year? I think J Kidd is outrebounding him.

Man, IMO you should remove some names in your overrated players list...CP3, Williams, Melo, Johnson, Howard are top players in the league.

As for Pau I give him credit because it must not be easy to put big numbers playing alongside Kobe Bryant, but I agree he's a bit overrated.

It's not about being the top players in the league but about being given more credit than they should be given. That's why those guys are on my overrated list..

I look at players as overrated based on not just skill but character as well.
