Scottie Pippen, one of the best basketball players to ever grace the NBA hardwood, said it best once when he claimed that "sometimes a player's greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team."
I couldn't have said it any better myself, Scottie. There's always a place for the divas of the NBA, the All-Stars, and then there are those who just don't have a place in the spotlight. Whether they are good enough varies, of course, but there are players who just quietly get the job done, simple as that.
These players are what I like to call underrated or unnoticed. Pippen himself was largely underrated, and there are more just like him who are either overshadowed or just plain ignored.
With that in mind, here are the 10 most underrated players in the game right now.
