Often I see alot of threads made about players but I rarely find a few on these bunch of players listed...Either that or there filled with hate or Question marks...Or the players are unnoticed...They may or may not be superstars

Andre Iguduola - Has been so clutch for the 76ers 21.5ppg 6.7 assist 6.3rebs in playoffs
David West - 21ppg 8rebounds overshawdowded by CP3
Nate Robinson- He plays on the knicks but still has put up good numbers 17 4 4 in 29 mins
Memhet Okur - The Jazz Second leading scorer
Ben Gordon- Was Leading scorer on the Bulls...Very clutch...has very little impact in some opinions.
Michael Beasley- Avg 20.6 ppg 8.6 rebounds in March...Some people think Anthony Randolph is way better...and some even consider him a waste of a pick.
Jose Calderon - 12.8ppg 8.9 assist very good shooter...

Anybody on the Kings other than Kevin Martin. He gets some love on this site. But Spencer Hawes and Jason Thompson get very little. I'm sure it's merely because no one really got to see them last season other than Kings fans but they're both very good.

Joakim Noah still gets a lot of hate and apparently some people didn't see the playoffs at all and are still under the impression that he's a talentless hack.

Please! Iggy gets plenty of love for what he brings to the court. None of the guys you mentioned are superstars. When all the threads are almost always asking questions about best scorer, or mvp candidates, or stuff like that of course the solid players and borderline stars aren't gunna get the love. Tell you this though....if we asked questions that pertained to some of the less elite nba players in the league they would get love.

For instance...if you asked: Whose the best player on Philly?
I would say: Iggy
but I would also say: That means they aren't a very good team though. If Iggy is your best player you are a borderline playoff team

Okur doesnt get love b/c no one likes a center that stands around on the perimeter.... gimme a powerhouse interior guy over him every day of the week

West is solid, but is only considered better then a Haslem or a Lee b/c he is playing with possibly the best PG of our era.

Robinson and Gordon get plenty of love for 6th men. Neither will lead a team on their own, but both are excellent contributors.

Calderon is another really solid player...but not a star.

And Beasley hasn't proven anything yet.

Now you want a list of guys who are unappreciated you have to look at the smaller teams to find guys like Al Jefferson, Kevin Martin, and Danny Granger.

Tony Allen
He receives no love or recognition because he's god awful and has the worst basketball IQ I've ever seen from a pro.

Yeah Kendrick Perkins is another one. He gave Dwight Howard a lot of problems 1 on 1 in the Celtics-Magic series.

rudy gay
emeka okafor
raymond felton
chris kaman

he did that before the draft when his douchebag blueblood arse opened his mouth trying to talk like he was from the hood when UF won the championship... I wish Horford turned around and beat him for that LOL.

Speaking of Horford... he's definitely one of the league's most underrated as well.

These two especially ... I complimented Iggy in another thread a few days ago and heard nothing but scorn for the guy. WTF, is there some kind of secret society that has nothing to do with his performance dedicated to hating on him?? lol. Great player who deserves some respect.

Those numbers for Calderon were while playing injured most of the year too! His own fan base rips him all the time. Most of last year you could hardly bring up the injury without someone saying they were just excuses. Well, roughly 13 and 9 for an injured player isn't too shabby.

He wasnt god awful before his injury. When pierce was out that year and he was getting 30 minutes a game, he was averaging almost 20 points a game with solid defense, now, he sucks. haha
