Once a NBA superstar, Vince Carter has now become an underrated role player for the surprising Dallas Mavericks.

The 2014 NBA playoffs have seen a number of underrated performances so far. From former superstars to valuable role players, this postseason has been filled with surprises, and we haven't even finished the opening round yet.

Typically, the NBA's elite grab the brunt of the attention on the sport's biggest stage. Names like Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson have all immortalized their careers by shining the brightest when the games matter the most.

However, beneath the glow of all that star power lies some postseason moments from those we least expect it from. In truth, it's hard for anything or anyone to be "underrated" in an era of round-the-clock news coverage and social media, where every highlight is punctuated by hashtags and the caps lock button.

The stars have the rest of these playoffs to be smothered in praise. Today, we pay homage to those who have been overlooked and celebrate each remaining team's most underrated player. 

As always, reader participation is encouraged. If you have any thoughts, questions or concerns or feel the need to make the case for someone you feel is more deserving of this slot, feel free to express your opinion in the comments section.
