Default MOP (Most Overrated Player)

The award goes to:


"Hi, my name is DeMarcus Nelson, and I don't like showing up in big games."

Case in point, his tourney numbers:

3-17 (.176 FG%), 2-5 (.400 FT%), 0-5 (.000 3PT%), 4 ppg, 3 rpg, 0.5 apg, 1/6 A/T ratio, 0.5 spg, 0 bpg

It's not just because of his tourney numbers, he also wasn't very good in the regular season when they faced a tough opponent. Way to not show up in the big games, DeMarcus! It's not like your team didn't need you or anything...

Hibbert let me down. Nelson wasn't ever really that great of a player anyways.

Eric Gordon was almost as bad since the regular season ended. More points, but didn't help his team any more.

But I agree that Nelson takes this title. He did have a great Senior season, but he has never been that talented. Of course as someone else pointed out, he wasn't much worse than a lot of their other players. Paulis, Henderson, and Scheyer were the only reason they were even close in the 2 NCAA tournament games.

Eric Gordon gets my vote. Turns the ball over all the time and bombs threes from beyond effective range. At the beginning of the season they were talking about him being a lottery pick. I wouldn't even rate him as a top 25 college player.

He looks more like a football player than bball player. Wonder if he played football in HS.

It wasnt DeMarcus Nelson's fault he didnt contribute more he had a great defender on him all game you cant fault the guy for being an undersized SG with an inconsistent jumpshot.

Being undersized no. Inconsistent jumpshot? Yes.

The most overrated player is Brook Lopez hands down. I've never seen such a hyped player who was so damn soft.
