Nikola Jokic - a Larry Bird-level offensive genius, but his severe defensive deficiencies will doom his team in the playoffs
Anyone on the 90's Knicks
Vince Carter - Pierce was better!
Kobe - great player, but LA, Shaq, the Gasol theft, and David Stern boosted his legacy far above what it should be.
Westbrook - (I was beating this drum way before it became popular to do so)
Kevin Durant - take away those Warrior freebie titles and has any supposed all-time-level player had such an underwhelming postseason career?
James Harden - the refs have as much to do with his superstar status as he does
Giannis - ditto. He literally cheats with his constant uncalled charges. Tatum and Brown would get 35+ a night if they were allowed to do that.
The San Diego Chargers - from the Marty Shottenheimer era on, this team has found increasinly imaginative ways to lose big games. The media weirdly doesn't seem to notice this and call them out on it.
Drew Brees - major playoff choker
Aaron Rodgers - ditto
Emmitt Smith, and pretty much any post-80's RB
Brett Favre - great player, but the media infatuation with him was cult-like
Eli Manning - Roy lays it out nicely above
Matt Ryan - I didn't like him in college and was flabbergasted by his supposed elite NFL status
Matthew Stafford - I don't care that he won a title. Anyone would have with that roster. He sucks.
Justin Verlander - he finally got a ring, but he should have more considering some of the teans he's been on
Roy Halladay - loads of talent and a HOF career, but I never feared him in a big game
Ichiro Suzuki - amazing hitting average and defense, but that .757 career OPS underwhelms.
Clayton Kershaw - all arm, no heart
A-Rod - all mouth, no heart
Manny Ramirez - take away the roids and was he actually even a good baseball player?
Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa - their legacies are already destroyed, but they deserve mention for that fraudulent homerun chase in the 90's. It was obvious even then they were juicing but the media ignored that aspect for the ratings frenzy of a home run chase.
