Lewis is overpaid, not overrated. He gets very little attention, when he's been the Magic's most consistent offensive player all year and all playoffs. He's not worth the max, but for the Magic, because he's such a good fit, he's pretty close to worth it.

Overrated: Bynum, Baron Davis
Underrated: Kevin Durant (top 10 player easily), Carmelo (best scorer in the NBA)

Queer? By Queer do you mean the actual definition of Unusual, or by Queer do you mean that it is "gay"? I sometimes question peoples reasoning for insult, but more importantly what leads them to feel things are gay. If you look at that and think, wow thats really gay, you must be thinking guy on guy butt intercourse scenes in your head, because honestly, when I see another guy, or anyone representing a person in their SIG, the last thing I have on my mind is anything GAY. I question your reasons and more so your morals, my friend, The fact that your brought anything gay to a discussion about basketball players lead me to believe you may be queer. The guilty are always so quick to accuse.

LeBron James:

- MVP of the league
- Captain of a team with only 2 losses at home during the regular season
- averaged 28+ pnts, 7+ ast, 7+ reb during the regular season
- averaging 34+ pnts, 6+ ast, 9+ reb in the current playoffs

That took a lot of effor on my part, but I want you guys to see why you both are completely wrong.

:eyebrow: explain that one?

Besides being viewed as overrated by many analysts, a five-year deal worth 79.8 million dollars for an injury laden, underperforming, former all-star is overrated. Brand is good, sure....but if you think he is worth nearly 80 million over 5 years, then I would like you to explain that to me......

05-22-2009, 01:37 PM
Chris Bosh? over rated? Arguably the best mid range shot in the game, top ten in freethrow attempts, avg 20-10 in 08?? sigh..

Well yes Lebron is one of the best players in the game, I'm with u. But..I watch a lot of his games, and what I come to notice is that he is un-guard able. You can't even nick the dude without getting a call, also he gets away with travels lol..The fact that is he suppose to be one of the best defensive players in the league while averaging 1 foul per game, makes it even more legitimate to claim that the refs are more less in his corner. Its like when he drives to the basket noone really tries to guard him, it's not that they can't, its just even if u do play solid defence and not really touch the dude they'll get called for a foul. Watch the games in replay you'll notice this trend haha.

In regards to Lebron, you are right about him only averaging a foul per game while playing pretty physical defense. I think if you sneeze on the court, and you're near Lebron, it is a foul. The guy is the golden boy, and Stern won't do anything to change that. Same with Kobe to a lesser extent, because Kobe is in a huge market in L.A.

(That being said, he is one of the best players I have ever seen)

Ok Rashard is overrated lol.
Yeah I am sure the Cavs team thought Rashard was overrated in the 4th quarter when he shot 100% for 12 points on 5 shots outscored Lebron by 2 and had the game winning dagger 3. A playoff comeback win on the road to the team with the best record.....Worth every nickel IMO...hell give him more.:p

EXPLANATION:
First of all RAJON RONDO is not an overrated a player...i mean he is an incredible triple-double guy,,,he is a great reason for celtics success,,,i m amazed by his rebounding,,,havnt seen any pg xcept Jk doing it,,,

I think media is too mad abt Lebron,,,too much,,he is great player and one of the best in the world, no doubt,,,,,bt media is too carzy abt him....

D Wade never gets the attention he deserves...this guy already have a ring 3 yrs ago, and media (outside of maimi and PB) is very careless abt him,,,,Just guess if Lebron already had a ring.....i m sure if he wins it this time, ******* media will start saying he is one step away to b the greatest ever,,,

If people were judging Bynum based on how he was playing before he got injured, nobody would say he's overrated. But everyone is judging him based on the playoffs where he is clearly not 100% and has yet to get any consistent playing time (Phil's fault)

Underrated:
-Brandon Roy (should be top ten on the franchise player list)
-Chris Anderson (not for long)
-Kevin Durant (should have been an all-star; 2nd best small forward in NBA)
-Russell Westbrook (can get close to a triple double on most nights)
-Antawn Jamison (a consistent 20 and 10 player on an inconsistent team)

Over-rated:
-Gilbert Arenas (what use is his talent if he never plays)
-Danillo Gallinari (somebody should tell D' Antoni to shut up about Italy)
-Andrea Bargnani (that one guy just wanted to piss people off by voting for him instead of Roy for Rookie of the Year)
-Dirk Nowitzki (Tim Duncan is tougher and should have made the all-NBA first team)
-Elton Brand (the 76'ers should have just let Thadeus do the job)

Just Right:
-Zach Randolph (his reputation matches what a black hole he is on offense)
-Jermaine O'Neal (teams are just playing hot potato with his eventually expiring contract)
-LaMarcus Aldridge (a decent power forward who's not tough enough to be anything great yet)
-Dwight Howard (everybody knows he's the best center in the NBA)

I am a Knick's fan but all this guy can do is score, no defense under sized sg, cant guard the 2, or 1, needs to get out of dodge.

Underrated : Teyshuan Prince

The guy goes out and guards the opponents best player, and still manages to put up solid numbers on the offensive end, dude isn't loud or cocky either, one of my favorite players.

Just Right : Amare Stoudamire

How he is being talked about recently is just right, he is a beast on the offensive end, and the exact opposite on the defensive end.

Look at the ****ing team Kobe had..... Give Lebron one of the best centers of all time, I think they'd have more titles then Kobe.

Im just saying how can tou undermine Kobe by saying that it was because of the team had. I wouldn't mind what you just said but saying give Lebron a dominant center and " I think they'd have more titles then Kobe". How the **** can you say that. And the point about Horry makes no sense, he has more than Jordan as well so wouldn't he be a step above? Just stop with that nonsense. Until Lebron wins atleast a couple of rings, then compare him to Kobe.

So ur saying you need to be a champion to be good?

Give Lebron a dominant center and he'll win titles, let him get Dwight. Since Kobe had Shaq and Shaq back then was better then Dwight.
