It's well-known that market size does much to determine one's NBA fame. It's not rocket science; if you play before more fans, then more people will know who you are.
So, it stands to reason that there are some oft-ignored gems out there, players who give superstar production to a role-player media reception. Some are ignored because their style of play does not appeal to the masses. Some are ignored because their teams play in small cities, far from either coast. And some, quite frankly, just play for awful franchises. Still, it would be nice to give credit where it's due and give props to some of the league's too-often-ignored superstars.
