Default The Six Most Underrated Players in the NBA

Jose being named as one of the NBA's most underrated players. I hope this isn't some kind of curse either.

Raptor Coach Sam Mitchell likes his team to get up a lot of shots, and Calderon is a playmaker who assures that most of the attempts are high percentage.

why is he compared with felton in the same line with davis? Surely there's nobody out there who would put felton above calderon. I find this a very weird statement ...

Raymond Felton is just thought of as a guy who piles up assists, so if anything it's a compliment. No one's comparing Jose to Felton.

Considering the other players listed are possible all stars like Kevin Martin, Tyson Chandler, Caron Butler, Andre Miller, and Samuel Dalembert, I'd say Jose being on here is no shame at all. These are just underrated players for the extreme casual fan who only pays attention to Kobe and Bron.

He's only underrated because he plays in Toronto Canada!Put this guy in a knicks uniform and he'd own MSG and would be on the cover of NBA LIVE.

i don't think Calderon is underrated at all. he was starter for half a season and received consideration for the all-star team.

these lists are usually compiled of overshadowed players, or players who are great on real shitty teams. players like brand and abdul-rahim held down that underrated list for years because no one cared for the grizz, hawks, or clippers when they were losing. why should they?

i'd rather not see Calderon on it.
