10 Most Underrated NBA Players in the League Right Now

The term "underrated" means that most people do not recognize how good a particular player actually is.

Each of the 10 most underrated NBA players in the league right now fits this description.

In an attempt to quantify the subjective nature of "what most people recognize," however, I included a couple of requirements in compiling this list.

The first is that none of these underrated players have ever been recognized as an All-Star or named to an All-NBA team.

This eliminates David Lee, for example, who might be better than most people think but has been an All-Star before. It also eliminates a player like Tyson Chandler, who was named All-NBA last season.

The second requirement, though, is more subjective.

I did not include players like James Harden on this list either. Despite never being an All-Star or an All-NBA selection, Harden is currently recognized as an elite player.

Stephen Curry is another example of players who fell into this category.  

The 10 most underrated players were selected based on how each is perceived relative to his performance this year.

It includes players who could make their first All-Star team this season. It also includes those who could be starters on another team, as well as players who are simply better this year than most people realize.
