Underrated players are ones that usually play well on small-market teams while not making any headlines with their antics (on-court or off-court). Some players love being labeled as “underrated”, because that means the pressure is off for them and they are being recognized by the few people that value them so highly.
Some suggest that great defensive players do not get their due. Maybe Shane Battier or the great Bruce Bowen come to mind first. Perhaps it is great shooters who do not get proper credit. Many have considered players like Mike Miller vastly overlooked. Now, with the 2010-2011 NBA Regular Season upon us, it is time to look at ten of the more under-valued players in the league.
