Definitely Troy Murphy. I would also say that Randy Foye is having a pretty good year.

Josh Powell from the Lakers and possibly Birdman from the Nuggets.

Gotta agree with Troy Murphy. Saw his stats the other day and was like, woah, seriously?

Charlie Villanueva never gets talked about, he's having a solid year.

Well, when you don't see them play, like most poeple don't with charlie or murphy, its easy to forget about them, they're never on national tv, so unless they play your team, you usually don't check thier games.

Despite being injured, Kevin Martin has been productive in the games he hasn't been hurt.

You guys mentioned a lot of good players out there.

Don't forget Raymond Felton, Gerald Wallace, Ramon Sessions, and Thaddeus Young

IMO, I think Joe Johnson gets overlooked a lot.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Charlie Vill too. And his teammate Ramon Sessions, I mean he was in the D-League?!

Troy Murphy is definitely having an amazing season and is flying under everyone's radar.

Another guy I think is Andrea Bargnani, dude has been lights out in 2009 averaging 22 pts (so much for the "bust" title everyone put on him) but what people haven't noticed about him is his defense has gotten a lot better.

Charlie V, Mbah Moute, Tony Parker, Ronnie Brewer, AK47, Pau, K-Love, Eric Gordon (alittle people are taking notice now), Al Horford, B. Lopez, and Bogut earlier in the year. Just going by what Ive heard people claim or lack of recognition

Chronz took the words out my mouth(well you know what i mean lol)
EJ, Eric Gordon

Ramon Sessions has been solid when he's actually plays. And Emeka has been damn solid

Birdman is like 2nd in BPG I think, and David Lee is getting amazing amount of rebounds.

Jarrett Jack

Leon Powe

There are all underrated.

I don't think David Lee is underrated or going unnoticed. I think we're all pretty aware of his play and what he's doing in NY.

Andrea Bargnani, Kevin Love, Sessions, Raymond Felton, TJ Ford and Troy Murphy.

But I think the biggest one of all has to be Antawn Jamison. The dude has been terrific. It's a shame he couldnt get into the all star game, but some how David West could.

David Lee is a good choice too.

David Lee for most improved player and Nate Robinson for sixth man of the year.

Good candidates for that, but everyone's pretty well aware of it. They get plenty of exposure playing in NY. Troy Murphy, no exposure and having a very solid season.

except for the fact that he's not.

He's won an MVP for crying out loud lol

I'd agree on Tony Parker. He's a baller man, dude's amazing and often times because he plays in San Antonio and because of the style of offense they play, he doesn't get a ton of recognition. In the overall NBA, I think he's underrated.

Dirk I'm not sure on. I think he gets a good amount of recognition, but he probably doesn't get his fair share, though I think there are good reasons for why he's faded from the spot light.

As much as I love Caron Butler, meh. He's recognized as much as he should be. The Wizards stink, Caron should be thankful that doesn't get more attention.

Especialy the year he got MVP.


For me it's John Salmons, Ronnie Brewer, Marquis Daniels, Emeka Okafor, Jeff Green, Kelenna Azubuike, Troy Murphy, Rasual Butler, Boris Diaw, and Nene.

How could I forget Marquis Daniels, and Jarrett Jack. They are on my team:o I know someone else mentioned Jack on here.

Paul Milsap has gotten a lot of national recognition, with people saying that Utah doesn't need Boozer anymore, etc. It's hard to say players like Parker, Aldridge, etc. are unnoticed. Underrated? Yes. But people do notice them, even if they don't get the recognition they deserve.

But someone like Troy Murphy, who is averaging 14/12 for the year and something like 20/15 since Danny Granger's been injured, would be hard pressed to sign an autograph outside of Indiana or California. He is 3rd in the NBA in double doubles, 3rd in rebounds, 1st in defensive rebounds, and 6th in 3pt FG's made. How's that for a unique skill set? And no one knows who he is.

No. But he was getting his name tossed out by some for an all star nod. And people were talking about him a lot because of the whole boozer opting out thing. I think people are aware that he's a beast. Maybe not though.

I knew about the boards, did not know about the 6th in 3pt fg's made. wicked.

Emaka Okafor and Boris Diaw also having good years thus far.

Troy Murphy definitely. The only reason I know how good he is is because he's on my fantasy team.
