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...
It was only 2 rounds back then before the NBA Finals. The Royals made 2 Eastern Division Finals I believe.


You can't blame the guy for playing in the same Eastern Conference that featured the Celtics, The Nationals and later on the 76ers and Knicks.

Most of those guys were "overhyped", but ones they hit big time, nobody considered them good so I don't see them as overrated (referring mostly to Miner, Muresan, Olowokandi, O'Bannon).

Patrick Ewing--A very good scoring big man, a decent rebounding big man, not GREAT

Reggie Miller--shot the 3 great and didn't do much more

Larry Johnson--Had one 20 and 10 year

Alonzo Mourning--Great at blocking shots. Under performing rebounder, not a super passer, always injured (even pre-kidney.)

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

They made the ECF and lost to the Celtics in back to back seasons. 63 and 64. In one of them they lost in 7 games.

Oscar Robinson...some people try to through him around in territory he doesnt belong

Players whose surname itself is written wrong by 10-20% of posters (Oscar Robertson, Dominique Wilkins, etc), can't be considered overrated. BTW, for every poster who says Oscar was the GOAT (there are not many) there is a at least one poster who believes that he'd be a scrub today. And Oscar even today would be infinitely closer to "GOAT" status than "scrub" status.

You must not remember how well any of these guys played defense, especially when it mattered (okay, maybe LJ isn't a lockdown defender, but he still stepped up in big-game moments). I don't know about you, but I've seen too many great games between these players matchups to understand why you think they're overrated.

Worthy had no quickness?
Worthy had one of the quickest first steps ever, especially for a forward and was equally fast, finishing hundreds of Magic's fast-break passes.
As far as shooting, he could hit nearly automatically 12-15 feet shots, either with his back or his face to the basket.

Mark Jackson is underrated if anything. Morons.

Dude was a phenomenal point guard.

Allen Iverson has to be number 1.

He is the quickest player in the league, but shoots way too much for his fg%. He stagnates the offense, and forces his own team to adjust to him not only offensvely, but defensively. You have to have a big point guard who can check shooting guards in the league because AI is too small to guard them.

Tim Duncan. Dominating every opponent and winning lots of titles aren't everything. Where's the flair?

He made it trendy to heave, too.
