You might have seen the SI Players NBA Poll in the most recent edition of Sports Illustrated.

The magazine asked 173 NBA players who was the most overrated player in the league.

Tracy McGrady was the leader with 9 perecent of the vote, followed by Danny Granger with 4 percent.

After that, six players each received 3 percent of the vote, including the Sixers' Andre Iguodala.

The others: LaMarcus Aldridge, David West, Gilbert Arenas and Cleveland teammates LeBron James and Shaquille O'Neal.

SI does not say when the survey was taken, although you would assume it was recently. It would be interesting to see if NBA players equate overrated and underrated with salary vs. performance or hype vs. performance. You might recall Slam magazine named Iguodala the 26th best player in the league in the offseason, based on expected production.
