    Wow,

    I didnt know Granger was that highly thought of in the league to be considered overated.

    I wonder if this is why he kind of got "frozed out" in last years all-star game
    Sittin on top of the world!

    Overrated in hype, maybe.

    I don't think he's overrated when you take into account his salary.

The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    The fact that Lebron is on the list should tell you that it means absolutely nothing.

    If I was Danny I would use all this for fuel going forward. Some people act like he is getting max money or something. The kid is a baller, and has a pretty good contract vs his offensive production. I know he is supposed to be the man on our team & lead us to glory, most of which he did a good job of last year. This year has been a disaster for the team as a whole, no question. I think folks are just bored! The poll is a total joke! But all this is to be expected when a team loses, it just cracks me up how we always want to blame somebody and point fingers... I know, it's how the world works!

    Absolutely nothing? Surely, how you're viewed by your peers should mean at least something.

    It's funny how everyone agreed when Artest and SJax came in the top 5 in SI's "Who would you least like to have on your team" player poll last year. But now, when Granger is getting unfavorable reviews from his peers, it means nothing.

    And I'm not saying Danny is overrated, I love the guy.. but I don't think you can completely discredit what people who play against him every day think of him.

    I think Lebron's overrated.

    It's not that I don't think he's a fantastic player, and perhaps the best player in the league.

    But some like to already say he's the best ever. Truth is the guy depends way too much on his athleticism and hasn't won anything. So if people are considering him the best ever, that's overrating him.

    I have never read a single story or report or anything that says LeBron is already the best ever. People say he has the tools and the talent to possibly be the best ever (which is absolutely true), but no one actually says he already is.

    I've heard it multiple times. That he is already, or will be.."Jordan never averaged blah blah blah"

    plus, I wouldn't be suprised if players in the league are just sick of him being shoved down their throats.

    Do you have a link or anything?

    The second part of your post is probably the reason LeBron's name shows up on this list.

    I think Team USA has a different opinion of Danny.


    Until proven otherwise, I going with his mediocre performance so far this season is due to injury and stranger than usual JOB ball.

    Lebron is closer to Bird/Magic than Jordan. He loves to get his teammates involved.
    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.

    I think he's a good player, but I never thought of him as being a "great" player. Heck, I wouldn't have put him in the same league as the players mentioned with him minus Aldridge. I think he's better than him.

    Refering to LeBron as "overated" negates anything this writer says. LeBron is not Michael Jordan, but he is an animal. Furthermore, Tracy McGrady is a "has been" because at one time TMAC was a very dominate player.

    Cheers.

    TMac is overrated???

    Does anyone think of him as strong now? No. So unless he's dead and I didn't hear I don't see how he's overrated.

    Lebron is not overrated. Does Lebron have a Scottie Pippen type player to play along side of? Hell no he doesn't. Pippen was one hell of a player and Lebron doesn't have anyone like that on his team.

    I didn't think Danny Granger was that well known to be considered overrated. There are many players more overrated than Danny Granger. Not sure what their criteria was for being overrated, but it's not like Danny has any real protection.

    These days, the best teams have 3 or 4 all-stars....where a player like Lebron is left with an ancient Shaq and a cast of very average starters. Mo Williams is the only other player scoring in double figures.

    Imagine Lebron with Bynum, Odom, Gasol and Artest....or with Garnett, Rondo and Ray Allen. There would be no way to stop that team.

    Exactly, so many fans think he is the G.O.A.T. this early in his career. I'm not surprised if a lot of players think he is overrated.

    As for the stats, you should say that LeBron has never scored 81 points in a game or even 69 (Jordan) for that matter. Then you can win the argument on their terms.

    See, I hate that argument.

    Lebron's team is isn't great without him. But they are completely built around him.

    Why do you think they want Troy. Not because he's a fantastic player, but because he'll fit well with Roy. He needs players that space the court, can hit the three, so that he can drive to the lane..and teams can either chose to try and stop him, or defend the three pointers.

    The Laker's aren't built around Kobe. They are built around Phil Jackson's offensive system. And Kobe happens to be a Superstar filling in his role.

    FWIW, Phil Jackson's offensive system is struggling quite mightily in Minnesota.
