Who are your Top 4 most overrated/overpaid players? Mine..

1. Amare Stoudemire

When you're paying a guy max money at $99M for 5 years, you'd expect a guy like that to be able to carry a team to a certain extent. Thats not that case with Stoudemire. He doesn't offer anything to the Knicks but scoring. For a guy that is 6'10, super athletic and a supposed beast..he grabs a whopping 8 rebounds per game which puts him 27th in the league. We already know that he's a horrible defender and not much of a shot blocker. He's not a guy that is going to blow you away with post moves either. The Knicks are 3-7 so he hasn't made this team much better.

2. Chris Bosh

Just when I thought Stoudemire's 8 boards a game was a joke, here comes Chris Bosh at 6 which makes him 48th in the league. There is not powerful about this power forwards game. The guy is as soft as a wet tissue. He's not going to block a lot of shots or grab a load of rebounds. You'd expect more from a guy making $14.5M a year. He has a nice offensive game, but offers little else beyond that.

3. Rashard Lewis

$20M a year? You're kidding me right? He'll be making $24M in 2012 as well? What does this guy do well? Shoot the 3 and little else. He's a horrific defender and a terrible passer as well as a below average rebounder.

4. Monta Ellis

Not sure why people keep calling this guy a super star. At $11M, he close to a bargain, if he made his team better. He's one of, if not the most, selfish players in the league. He makes Iverson looks like John Stockton. Since signing his big contract, the Warriors have won 55 games in two season. He's an undersized SG. What undersized shooting guard can't score? Look at Barbosa, Ben Gordon or House. Give those guys 21 shots a game and I can guarantee they average 20 points.

Definitely Rose he is the worst. I can't even begin to understand why anyone thinks he can even play in this league.

It seems more like you're attacking players who make money and doesn't have the stats to show it.

I agree with your top 3, but definitely not Monta. He's not overrated. Players like Joe Johnson, Elton Brand, Carlos Boozer. Those guys definitely top the list.

Sources say he may get cut soon if he doesn't turn around his humble and modest attitude and play more as a follower than a 22 year old leader of a playoff team. The team is fed up with his continued growth as a player too, sources say if he doesn't stop working so hard to better himself he is gone. God, what an unlikeable player.

I don't know why you merged overrated and overpaid because they are two entirely different lists. For example, Rashard Lewis is grossly overpaid but he's not overrated.
