Default Re: Hos overrated is Deng?

I think he's overrated because people think he's more than a role player. As a role player, he's great. The kind of guy that would be good on any team... he just knows how to play.
Exactly. We're so starved for professionals in our professional league that when someone goes out on a nightly basis and does his job well, we have to call him an all-star.

I liken it to Shawn Marion back when he put up 20/l0.

He is between the 2nd and 4th best player on an outside contender. I'd place him at 3rd (I think Noah's more important, but just by a hair. I like Boozer more than most, but I think because of defense he's ahead of Booz.)

This is.exactly it. If hes paid roughly 6 mill as opposed to 11, hed be considered underrated. I think hes about a 6-7 on a scale of 1-10
