Being labeled as overrated is a stamp no player wants associated with his name. It is like a black list that we do not speak about.
Some players reach greatness, while others fall short of the hype.
Some players have mediocre careers, but are talked about for decades because of their postseason exploits.
Some players were so gifted in one facet of the game that their shortcomings are overlooked.
Whatever the reason is, all sports have these players—the overrated ones.
