I would say the Knicks, being honest, I think they are hated so much when people don't even watch them play.

Next I would say the Blazers, they have alot of great, young talent.

Sorry the Knicks just suck. They aren't underrated.

I'd say the Pacers. They didn't do so great last year, but they beat some really good teams and that was because they were taken lightly.

The Bulls are very underreted most people dnt see them making the playoffs this season because the lost of gordon but they are forgeting that Rose,Noah,and Thomas is getting better then we have Deng coming back and We drafted a good rookie in James Johnson also Salmons can now play the 2 position so thats why i say bulls and i really think they are going to be the 5th or 4th seed

It's been said before, but I think the Pacers. Granger is incredible and Rush will come into his own this year. Hibbert seemed like he was getting it together this summer league as well.

Knicks are not underrated. They have been one of the worst teams for the past couple years.
Blazers aren't underrated, everyone knows they are a great young team and have a promising future. They lack experience, maturity, and leadership. Roy is their growing leader.

Wizards, they have a lot of injuries. I think they are underrated.
OKC, I think they are underrated.

Phoenix suns we have so little to lose and have so much to gain. I like being underrated cuz no one expects nothing from us. But in reality we are just as good as we were a couple years ago. Just a little change in personal. Amare is going to beast it and I wouldn't be surprised if we got somewhere around the 3rd seed.

This is somewhat homer...but the Miami Heat. WHen you have Dwyane Wade you always have a chance to win...yet people constantly say, especially on these boards, that Miami sucks, despite Wade and a solid young core

Denver. They were the 4th best overall team last year after LA, healthy Boston and Cleveland yet people don't even realize they are that good and consistently forget about them when they talk about the top teams because they haven't added any extra players. Their roster is stacked with very good athletic big men, the best point guard in the league IMO, and one of the league's most unstoppable scorers... and have plenty of depth already.

Warriors... Not just being a homer, but we got a lot of young talent and fire power.

I'm letting everyone know right now... The warriors will win 50+ games and make the playoffs... BOOK IT

I also think Detroit is underrated... I like what dumars is putting together.

The Lakers... people think they are going for 70 wins when they will be going for 82-0

but for real I gotta go with the Jazz

everyone thinking OKC is UNDERRATED essentialy makes them OVERRATED. JEEEEEEEZ did u people watch ball last year. Most of the time they looked like THE WORST team in the NBA

The Bobcats too

Wizards. Can't say Clippers since management has sucked and their main players who are being highly overpaid always get injured

Houston...people think they won't go anywhere without Yao...but they still are a force defensively and put themselves in a position to win with their defensive mindset.

The kinicks are NOT UNDERATED... Who underates them...They just stink...They play no defense and chuck up a million 3 pointers a game. They are like the Suns from about 2 years ago but they are 5x worse at that style of play.

mitch91
08-06-2009, 01:34 PM
i think the wizz are underated...also possibly the suns.....to be honest i think people are overrating the thunder....ive read quite alot that people have them making the playoffs and alot of people dont have the suns making the playoffs, so i think the suns are kind of underrated.

yes i know the thunder have a great and i mean great young core but thats exactly what they are....young!

The Jazz, just because they haven't added, they subtracted cancer (see also Brevin Knight) That alone should make them better. But hopefully they can stay healthy, they'll make a splash if they do.

Golden State Warriors.

Huntey
08-06-2009, 01:47 PM
i think the clippers should be amazing, they have Baron davis, marcus camby, Kaman, Al thornton (i think should develop into an all star) and Eric gordon (also future all star). The addition of Blake Griffin can only help and i think they have a decent, young, shot blocking, centre in DeAndre Jordan. Ricky Davis is allright aswell.
With a line-up like that why do they do so badly???

Also i would say the Bobcats BEFORE the Okafor trade. They are a great defensive team which really needs a bigtime scorer and possibly Okafor back. A few more pieces (BIG pieces) and i think they'll be a very good play-off caliber team.

Agreed. Roy Hibbert actually was pretty good last year, but he just couldn't stay out of foul trouble. So he'd put up a lot of games where he'd have like 12 and 6 but would foul out in 20 minutes.....

his per 36 minutes stats last year were:

17.6 points 8.7 rebounds 1.7 assists 2.7 blocks and 7.7 fouls!!!


If this guy could stay on the court, he can be an All Star.

I'm also a huge Georgetown fan, so I want to see him succeed.

Thunder Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant are going to become two of the better player in the NBA. Durant already is and Westbrook just needs a more consistent shot.

lol.. I just went through the thread and 20 of the 30 NBA teams were listed in this thread as underrated. They can't all be underrated. This might deserve some sort of poll.

It depends upon the criteria. If we define "under-rated" as not appearing on ESPN every ****ing night, then at least 20 teams are under-rated.

Just because you are hated doesn't make you under rated.

There are also a lot of Lakers and Cavaliers fans yet people are calling the Cavs the biggest over rated team in the NBA.

Golden State Warriors no doubt. If we were in the east.... we would be in playoffs every year

Phx, Chicago, Miami, 76'ers for playoff teams. Phx got better, but no one really understands that. Chicago has rose, who is a ****ing monster and is going to be an all-star verrrrrry soon, Wade is arguably the 2nd and maybe 3rd best player in the league and aslong as he is healthy, if beasley steps up, watch out. Philly took Magic alot further than most expected, and although might have gotten worst, we'll see who steps up and if any more moves are made.


Non-playoff teams Pacers, Warriors, and Raptors (although raps may make the 8seed this year).

Granger looking good, Pacers probably aren't a playoff team but they did do well against alot of teams last year. Warrior's have a good lineup, upgraded with curry (who although may be a chucker, is a great young guy to have) and would like already stated be in the playoffs in the easy. Raptor's got WAY Better, Bosh is a 20-10 guy EASILY, Hedo looked very good in the playoffs, Derozan was a great pickup and If the Pistons project doesn't work out well, they could very easily squeeze their way into the 8th seed.
