Rating players is always a tricky task, but the general public has failed when it comes to these 25 overrated stars of the NBA's past and present.
Larger portions of that public have failed for some, while a select group is causing the "overrated" tag to be levied upon other stars. But regardless, for one reason or another, each of the 25 is overrated.
Those reasons are quite important.
You'll see a few Hall of Famers present in this article. I might be calling them overrated, but it's for various reasons, and the magnitude of that "overratedness" certainly matters. Take the player on the very next slide, for example. Despite including him here, I'm calling him a top-10 player in NBA history and a virtual lock for a first-ballot HOF selection.
Context matters, so make sure you're aware of how it applies to each of the players mentioned.
