I find it funny how over rated Nash is. He no longer can shoot the three,and thrives on his rep as a passer. The past three years with the suns he led the league in turn overs, was the worst defending point guard in the nba, and has lost his legs to elevate. So you tell me who the most over rated player is in the nba?

He can still hit the 3. The amount of turn overs reflect the amount of time he is in possession of the ball. I think Amare staudimire and Ricky Rubio are the most over rated players in the NBA

KoMe is the most over-rated, lifetime PER is only around 22.5 and has missed more last minute shots than anyone ever in the NBA and his fourth quarter fg% goes down to 35%. Not a clutch player at all.

First, you're coming off as having a sour grapes complex with Nash going to LA. It's the biz, get over it.

Nash is nowhere near overrated. He's accurately rated. He's not in LA to be their savior. He's there to bring some experience and wisdom to the PG position. Something LA hasn't had in years(I don't count Fish as a true PG).

He may have led the league in turnovers with the Suns but it's the Suns. He tried to force a lot of action and the players around him just couldn't cut it. Look at the Suns now without Nash. I think they were doing better WITH Nash and all those turnovers you mentioned.

Nash will never be in the running for DPOTY and his offensive productivity far outweighed his defensive inability but he always found a way to do enough. Nash also was never an above the rim or around the rim player. He didn't need to be and by being careful like he's done he's been able to maintain a long career.

Toss those sour grapes and be happy the guy put the Suns back on the map when he was there. Hating on a dude that gave 100% and took weak teams to the playoffs is pretty sad...

Exactly bro. Without Nash making him, Amare isn't getting the mega deal from NY. Also, you know he's done 0 in NY since joining.

Look out for RR in the future though. I think he'll earn his Spanish rep in the next couple seasons.

I hope so I really like Rubio and what he showed in Spain. I just think people over rate him as to his numbers this season

KD and LBJ have higher fg%s and pts per game than KoMe and shoots at a higher percentage in the fourth quarter than KoMe.

They are much more efficient and more important to their teams than KoMe is to his. Their PERs are much higher than KoMe too. The highest career PER is still MJ but not afyer this season.

You are on the wrong thread to be talking about this. This is not best players in the NBA thread. How about you just make a Kobe hate thread so you can spew it all there and leave it there

You're only a Laker fan when one of your 3 other personalities tell you to be and you're a multi-personality Kobe hater PERIOD. Come up with some new material Angelinoflake.

BTW, I'm sure you saw me giving you props but wouldn't comment as to keep your ridiculous lie going but it was actually funny to see you con that steroid fool into believing you.

He is no where near a Laker fan. Hes full of bukake for petes sake. Hes the biggest GSW fan you will ever meet and still sports the Rick Barry jersey down the streets of San Francisco. Or was that a Sleepy Floyd Jersey? Either way he loves to talk smack

If my GSW do not win ,I want the Lakers to win--these two teams are both from California. KoMe just too many turnovers and hogs the ball too much.
Mark Cuban says the Lakers should just amnesty KoMe.
