This year's class of free agents pales in comparison to that of last year's. There isn't a superstar at every turn, much less at all. There's an abundance of role players at the ready; players who could be seen as missing pieces to complete a championship team.
Nevertheless, this class isn't fantastic and considering the hype it's receiving, clearly people are weighing certain factors a bit too much.
Don't get me wrong, there are free agents worth talking about, worth gushing over and hoping that they are the missing link to your chain of championships. Realistically, they aren't. Not every role player comes with a sign that has the word "championship" emblazoned on it.
The Bulls, Heat, Celtics, Lakers and every other contender out there thinks the free agent they'll be getting will be that missing link. You know what? For one of those teams they might just find that, but 31 teams won't.
Here are players that are claimed to be game-changers but really only have you getting your hopes up for no reason. These overrated free agents likely won't be helping your team hoist up a trophy any time soon.
