Doesn't mean he's not underrated.

I think he is hated on because of his mediocre defense. But there is no doubt he is one of the leagues best passers.

Same. I'm very high on Gordon although I find him to be a shooter more than anything else. He's improved his assisting game every season he's played in though.

Yeah. I think the Clips can challenge for the playoffs this year if healthy. I predict them to finish with the 7th or 8th spot. Gordan should average 24-4-3-1 for the next half a decade if healthy

I don't think anyone underrate's Calderon's passing. He's a great shooter, a great FT shooter, a terrible defender, and a great passer. That's how I assess him and how I feel most would too.

I've always felt Manu was an exceptional passer. His vision is amazing.
Iggy is a good choice.

Pau too.

calderon is extremely underrated as a passer, the only thing i hear people say about him is that hes a horrible defender, which is kind of true, hes better than horrible but his 3 pt shot and playmaking ability makes up for it.

Well any game I watch , KG is one heck of a passer, and Billups because he don't get high number of assists for his career get mislabled a lot.

Mr Big shot can pass it as well.

KG is regarded as arguably the best passing PF ever dude. Billups is a known playmaker by any fan that actually pays attention to basketball. His assist numbers in his prime were due to crawling pace, and an offense that moved the ball a ton. He is a great passer.

calderon is not underrated passer, hes actually overrated. he doesnt take risks, thats why he doesnt turn over the ball. maybe the right word is that hes not flashy but i dont really see him as a good passer.

Well you and I think that lol but thats why I have him as underrated, I see Gasol constantly ranked higher and rarely see him on great passers list.

I just checked and can't find any, but found Gasol on three? See what I mean lol

good point. KG is the only player ever (passing Bird), to put forth 7 straight seasons at 20-10-5.

As a hardcore Wolves fan, trust me, I know his passing ability.

1. Andre Igoudala - He doesn't get 20 points per game, but he's the best passing forward outside LeBron James.

2. Kevin Love - As if shooting threes well wasn't enough, Love can also pass out of a double team pretty well — now if only he had someone worth passing to.

3. Andre Miller - As a point guard, he's expected to get a lot of assists, but his ability to set up shots — even next to a ball hog like Brandon Roy — attests to his total dependability (along with playing about eight seasons without missing a game). Seriously; the Lakers or Heat should try to get him. He never gets hurt.

I don't think Calderon is an underrated passer at all.
If you watch him play, he makes very safe passes. He rarely make passes towards the basket. A lot of his assists come from penetrating and kicking it out to open outside shooters. Don't get me wrong, that does require good passing skills, but I don't see Calderon making thread the needle passes.

Another thing is, on a fast break 1 on 1 situation... most of the time he would rather slow down and run a play instead of making something happen.

He's a safe player, which is why his A/TO ratio is that good.
