PG Deron Williams 6-3 UTAH Jazz

Analysis: Been in the league 4 years and has been the core of playoff team for 3. He still has not made an all-star team. He may the best point guard in the league, but he doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

SG Joe Johnson 6-7 ATLANTA Hawks

Analysis: Made an all-star appearance, but I don't most people know just how good he is. People look at his game and see he his good scorer and shooter. But very few look at his defensive game. At 6-7 230 lbs, Joe Johnson is can be physical and bother ball handlers.

SF Kevin Durant 6-10 OKLAHOMA Thunder

Analysis: Very versatile scorer. He is arguably the third best SF in the NBA. He would get more attention if the Thunder hadn't had some abysmal records over the last 2 yrs.

PF Pau Gasol 7-0 LOS ANGELES Lakers

Analysis: He has th best up moves hands down. He has great footwork and can go left or right. He has a solid 17 foot jump shot and is the most effecient Power Forward in the game.

C Nene Hilario 6-11 DENVER Nuggets

Analysis: In the 2008-2009 season Nene made great strides by staying healthy. When Nene is healthy he is a top 5 center. He is a strong and atheletic. Shoots a very high percentage and is a solid defender.

I dont think kevin durant is underrated.  He was invited to the dunk contest and averages almost 30 ppg and over 7 rebounds.  Everyone else is probably a good pick, but instead of durant i would add someone like caron bultler, who is very physical inside.  he s not as consistent but Durant is to good to be on the underrated team.

Deron Williams is very underrated. And truly, it's because he plays in Utah and he plays with the Jazz. If he was somewhere else, there's a good chance he would be regarded as the best point guard in the game.

All-NBA Underrated Team

PG: Monta Ellis [only issue is tunovers]


SG: Brandon Roy or Joe Johnson thats a tuff one


SF: ill have to go with Danny Granger on this one im not sure if he is even a sf but thats where im goin to put him


PF: Marc Gasol VERY underrated in my opinion. dont get me wrong hes got a ways to go before he can be better than Pau. Once again i apoligize if Marc is a center but im listing him as a PF.


C: Al Jefferson a great young center who has ALOT of potential

All-NBA Underrated Team

You can't be serious. Larry Hughes and Brendan Haywood underrated. You must've dropped on your head when you were younger. Larry Hughes is very talented but even more inconsistent player. Had a chance with the Knicks last season to prove he could stil ball and didn't do enough. He was underrated in Washington, but he's not that guy anymore. Brendan Haywood is by no means underrated. He's a decent center and will never his life block 4 shots per game. He's not even gonns get 2 blocks per game. JaVale McGee is better than Haywood and Brendan definitely will not be able to score double digits this year with all those offensively gifted players on the Wizards roster. I understand you are a Wizards fan but you need to throw away that bias and look at the facts.

All NBA most underrated Team

PG - Rajon Rando
SG - Larry hughes
SF - Caron Butler
PF - Antawn Jamison
C - Brendan Haywood

Rando gets no credit for being the most energetic, fast paced player on the celtics because he's behind all the big names of paul pierce, ray allen, and Kevin Garnett.

Larry hughes is an excellent scorer and defender, especialy off the screen, but his travels since the wizards didnt match their offer against cleveland, has left him bouncing between teams that are cluttered at the SG position. He'd be in the top 15 SG's if he was able to play 35min per game.

Caron Butler - Yes he's an all-star, but outside of Washington, no one cares about his great talent and ability. 5 Star professional on and off the court and an amazing story.

Antawn Jamison - This guy is a workhorse, averages nearly 20-10, and noone likes him cause he wins "nicest man" awards and doesn't have a nick name. He's the ultimate veteran PF on any team and one of the best leaders in the game.

Brendan Haywood - totally underrated. Thirsty in his contract year this year, lots of rest, and a promising preview of this year's BH in his return late in the season last year. Prepare for double double nights with 4+ blocks this season.

All-NBA Underrated Team

I actually have Antawn Jamison as one of the more overrated players. I live in Maryland and I watch the Wizards enough to know that even though Antawn is an awesome offensive player and a good rebounder, he is a terrible man to man defender. For someone with good athletic ability he just doesnt get enough shot blocks and cant seem to stay in front of his man.

I agree that Gerald Wallave is grossly underrated. When you are a player that has averaged 2 blocks and 2 steals while still contributing offensively, that means you are a special talent. He is so underrated that I feel I made a mistake by not putting on this list.
