And lets not start talking about his defense, because he has none.

So you leave Duncan the 4 time NBA champ of your list that includes Kobe and Lebron, as much as NBA is about individuals its also about winning. Although Timmy is not as flashy as the 2 above he gets the job done i think you are underrating Timmy. Well if Paul is not in the same class as Kobe and Lebron he is very close, due to his importance on his team.


whoops wikipedia lied to me


Wikipedia usually lies a lot... at least since it became mainstream. :wink:

Most underrated player by far is MARCUS BANKS. The kid is the REAL GEM in the deal between Toronto and Miami. I mean, c'mon, even TMC would agree with that. :mrgreen:

To add to the list Trevor Ariza, nice size at 6'8 and handles, good defender, although overshadowed over in L.A.

Kyle Weaver from the bobcats, 2nd round draft pick, getting better with time, will improve to be solid in the NBA.

Isn't Kyle Weaver on the Thunder?

And I don't like him, but I gotta give credit where it's due. Shane Battier is the most underrated defender in the NBA, and is also a sharpshooter 3 point shooter. If you look at +/- differentials for the entire season, Battier is extremely excellent in this regard.

I always confuse the Thunder and Bobcats for some reason, could be their similar looking jerseys or the fact that they are both sorry low budget, bummy teams.

Shane is solid, if there is a player that does things that don't show up on the stat sheet this is the guy. An absolute team player, excellent defender, dive for the lose ball, all the dirty work this guy will do it, i can see how his +/- differential would be excellent. And most importantly he has stayed healthy for the rockets, he needs to pass the secret to some of his teammates.

To add to the list JR Smith from the Denver nuggets, guy has all the intangibles, out of the world athlete, nice range, ideal size for sg.
