Figured i would try to spice the forum up lol.
Title might confuse you, but basically out of all the players in the league..who are the best players that are underrated?
If I did this thread a couple of years ago I would say the New Orleans CP3 was highly underrated.
In my opinion: Kevin Love and KD.
Kevin Love averaged 26 and 13 in the 2011-2012 season. In the 2012-2013 season he averaged 18 & 14 even with a hurt hand. He is the best big man in the league in my opinion, clearly the best rebounding one and arguably the best 3 pt shooting big in the league also. Unlike Dwight Howard he can score inside and out and averages the most ppg as a big man. He's extremely underrated just bc he's in minny.
Kevin Durant - LeBron is overshadowing the crap out of him. KD's #'s are ridiculous, 50-40-90 at almost 7 foot tall is amazing while also averaging 28 ppg, 8 RPG, 4 APG, 1 BPG, and one steal per ball game. The guys numbers are insane once lebron starts to decline (which won't happen anytime soon) KD will be praised.
Jr Smith- do I really have to say why..? 2013 playoffs.
Blake Griffin - if you didn't watch basketball you would think this guy was the best player in the league by the highlights and the commercials this guy is in. If you would of asked me what Blake would be averaging in his 4th year in the league based on his rookie showcase I would of told you around 25 PPG, 14 RPG and 5,6 APG. Unfortunately Blake's numbers have gone down year by year, free throw percentage is still terrible, and has yet to develop a mid range jump shot. Don't get me wrong Blake is really good now, but his potential is through the roof, if he doesn't maximize it and just lives off of stupid dunks he's just going to become wasted talent.
