NBA's Most Over/Underrated Players

Jesse AbelsonContributor IOctober 27, 2008

Every sports team has their star player, and almost every sports team also has an overrated and an underrated player. Thinking about it, I made this list of some of the most over and underrated players in the league.

Six Most Overrated Players

1. Yao Ming

Yao Ming is 7 feet 6 inches. Without his height he would not be a good basketball player. Even with his height he is not outstanding. He is a God in China and has started for the Western Conference All-Star team for 6 years in a row. Yao is good but is not great.

2. Jason Kidd

3. Shaquille O'Neal

4. Gilbert Arenas

5. Carmelo Anthony

6. LeBron James

7.Jermaine O'Neal

He proved that he can't stay healthy for a long period of time. He put up just mediocre numbers last year, but when the raptors trading for him, they act like they traded for a superstar and are now instant contenders.

Six Most Underrated Players

3. David West

4. Hedu Turkoglu

5. Yi Jianlian

6. Rasheed Wallace
