Who do you think is the most underrated star of the last 15 years? There are a lot of solid role-players and starters even that are grossly underappreciated, but what about the stars? I was thinking today that Dirk is a little underappreciated. He lead the Mavs to 11-straight 50+ win season, always kept them in contention, got them to the finals twice and wona chip, yet he always takes a back burner to Garnett and Ducan when talking about his position, and though he wasn't as good a rebounder as either of them, or as good a defender, there is a lot to be said about his offensive game and how he has been a rock for the Mavs to beuild around. And he even got them 60-win season when Don Nelson was coaching them! That is a miracle in my book.
Ray Allen is another guy that is underapprciated. He took a very week Bucks team to the conference finals (though it was a weak east that season), and got the Sonics into the second round. And Pierce likewise got the Celtics to the conference finals with a weak roster.
And of coruse Duncan is generally underappreciated despite the fact he's elad his team to 4 titles and umteen straight season with 50 or more wins.
