Mike Korzemba tweeted out, “I’ve got a feeling that tonight’s video is going to be slightly controversial…” and then posted a video called, “Why James Harden is the Most UNDERRATED Player in NBA HISTORY.”
In History? Can a player with 3 All-NBA selections, a 6th Man of the Year award and a MVP from the NBPA awards (he was the MVP runner-up in the NBA that season) be underrated? Can a player with a $200 million shoe deal be underrated?
I might agree that the Shaqtin’ a fool favorite gets picked on more than any other current superstar but in my opinion, he’s not even the most underrated Houston Rocket ever; I’ll go with Robert “Should Be In the Hall of Fame” Horry and the late, great Moses Malone. And even though Elvin Hayes won his only championship with the Bullets, I think the former NBA leading scorer (as a rookie) and 2 x rebounding leader is a more underrated Rocket than the Beard too.
