View Full Version : Rosen: Most Overated players

Fox SPorts NBA analyst Charley Rosen has written an article of who he belives as the most overrated players in this league?

some names include:

Chris Bosh
What does this guy do? Shoot jumpers. Grab mostly finesse rebounds. Shoot more jumpers. Register more turnovers than assists. Keep on shooting jumpers. Play inferior defense except in the sub-par competition of international play. He does enough to fill up a stat sheet, but not enough to be a bona-fide franchise player.

Kevin Garnett
His performance in the 2008 NBA Finals against the Lakers was a good indication of where he's really at.
In Boston's six-point loss in Game 3, Garnett shot 6-for-21.
In Boston's five-point loss in Game 5, Garnett scored only 13 points and missed several shots in the fourth quarter.
In Boston's championship-clinching, 39-point win in Game 6, Garnett registered his series high of 26 points.
In other words, it is well-known among the league's coaches that Garnett is a frontrunner who will inevitably choke when a critical game is up for grabs.

Chris Paul
There's no doubt that CP3 has always been a truly great passer and has also worked diligently to become a dangerous 3-point shooter. But there are several reasons why he belongs in this dubious category.
In half-court offenses, he's a threat to do damage only in screen-and-roll situations, which means that doubling him virtually renders him impotent.
Because of his diminutive size listed at 6-feet but closer to 5-foot-10 he can be easily doubled.
His defense consists of steals. Period. Which in turn depends mostly on opponents' mistakes.
Many opponents simply take the ball to their favorite spot and then shoot over him.
Even when using a screen-and-roll, he's not nearly as effective going left as he is going right.
When was the last time that a pipsqueak-sized point guard led his team to an NBA championship? Slater Martin with the St. Louis Hawks in 1958 which means that while Paul's Hornets will be a good team, they'll never be good enough

Amare Stoudemire should've been more than an honorable mention. He should've made the top 10.
