Most Underrated NBA Players – 2014/2015 Season

Most Underrated NBA Players – 2014/2015 Season

most underrated nba players 2014 images

Every basketball fan knows who LeBron James and Kobe Bryant are, but many less dedicated fans probably would not recognize a smaller name player such as Jeff Teague. Many of these players hold their teams together; however, they seem to go unnoticed to the average basketball fan. Here’s a list of the most underrated, unappreciated players in the NBA for this coming season:

mirza teletovic underrated bulge nba basketball player 2014 images

Mirza Teletovic: At Brooklyn Nets games, Teletovic lighting up the court with his spot on shooting is a common sight; however, unless you are a big Nets fan you have probably never heard of him. Teletovic is a matchup problem for defenders because he can knock down shots from basically anywhere on the court—especially from behind the ark.

anderson varejao underrated bulge nba basketball players 2014 iamges

Anderson Varejão: Varajeo is a fan favorite in Cleveland—he is an exciting player to watch, a terrific offensive and defensive rebounder, and a top-notch rim protector. He is an all-around team player and one of LeBron’s favorite teammates.

Luis Scola underrated bulge basketball nba 2014 images

Luis Scola: Scola has played for three teams and seems to fly under the radar on each one. His overall numbers have dropped slightly with the Indiana Pacers since he does not get the ball as much, but he is still a terrific inside shooter and team player.

Larry Sanders: Sanders is arguably the best shot blocker in the NBA, and his injury problems this past season were a big part of Milwaukee’s horrible record. With Sanders healthy and Jabari Parker joining the squad, the Bucks should see some decent improvements this season.

omer asik most underrated bulge nba basketall 2014 images

Omer Asik: The New Orleans Pelicans acquired the big man from the Houston Rockets this offseason, and he should prove to be a great addition to the team. Asik’s offensive struggles have improved greatly as his career progresses, and he has always been a great defender in the NBA. Now that he will be playing alongside Anthony Davis his talent may start to be recognized.

nick collison most underrated nba bulge basketball 2014 images

Nick Collison: Anyone that watches the Oklahoma City Thunder regularly could tell you that Collison is one of the hardest workers in the NBA. Although he does not score much, Collison hustles on every play and is one of the better defenders in the league. The Thunder can always count on him for an energy boost late in the game.

Chris Bosh: Bosh may have been part of Miami’s “Big 3”; however, he was always the least respected of the three guys. With LeBron leaving the Heat, Bosh will be the go to guy in Miami this season; so he will be putting up the kind of numbers he used to with the Toronto Raptors and hopefully earn the respect he deserves as a super star in the NBA.
