I've always thought Melo was overrated as hell, but everyone thinks I'm crazy. I'm glad his name was in this thread.

I know, I love how poeple pick allstars and then put them in the "underrated" section.

Here's a underrated player.... Luis Scola.

Scola has been Houston's most consistent player this season and is averaging 13.5 ppg and 10.5 rpg over the last month despite playing next to one of the best centers who sucks up the majority of shots in the post.

On another team as the main option down low, Scola could put up around 20 and 10 #s

I don't get how people call a player who averages
12.7 PPG 5.9 RPG 9.15 APG over the last 40 games. I'm not saying he doesn't have major faults but he is far from being the scrub that many people think he is.

Why is everyone saying Devin Harris is underrated?

He does put up numbers, but if you watch him play you can see how many bad decisions he makes. His "shoot first" style has cost the Nets more games than its won. Theres no reason a point guard should be putting up 30 points, while outscoring all your teammates by 10+ points

I honestly think we'd be better off with Kidd.

He's never been an all-star in his career and people never mention his name at all when it comes to MVP talk.

D-Will is underrated by many. Most people center their attention around CP3, and in that process overrate him at times. D-Will is an excellent PG, one of the few true PG's in the league. Honestly I think CP3 is the better player, but in the category of PG's, Deron isn't far behind. It can be debatable at times, sort of a Kobe-LeBron battle. This year injuries can be the blame for his lack of media attention, but once he gets the ball rolling, expect to see him battling in the playoffs.

this, minus Rondo. Gasol, Nowitzki and D-Will are great picks.
