The dude averaged a triple double for a season, and almost averaged it again in 3 other seasons. You're crazy.

exactly the reason why I think he is overrated...Thats all people say about say about him...Especailly people who havent watched him

like a certain someone Oscar couldnt win a ring without the arguably GOAT center(KAJ) never made it to the conference finals without him..

I never saw him play, but I'm guessing you haven't either. So the numbers is all you and I have to go on. And on those? He's one of the best players to ever be in the league. And for the record, I've never heard anyone who DID see him play talk about him in a negative light.

basketballreference.com and look at his stats....

none of these guards in todays league (excluding LeBron) are not capable of putting up numbers like the Big "O" did...

other than "people who havent watched him play" give me some reasons to make us think that hes overrated...


side note: Im thinking of my top 10 list as we speak....

but they are capable of making it past the second round...something that Big O never did without KAJ in the twilight of his career...

The only way you get a triple double with 30 points and that many assits to dominate the ball so much that others wont have a chance to really get a feel...The only person I know did something similar in points and assits for a year was Tiny archinbald and people say dude just dominated the ball a ton...

People try to put Big O in the same sentence as Shaq, TD and he isnt there...he isnt on Bird and MAgic's level either...

As far as star players who are overrated go, you pretty much nailed it with this one.

umm the "Big O" and Tiny were both point guards and the majority of the offense is going to go through you...its hard to score 30 points and dish out 10 assist and thats not all, have the engergy to rebound and play both ends for the floor.......

and how many superstars went past the second round or won a championship by thierselves, I mean it takes two to get the Larry Obrien!
