Basketball= Karl Malone
How do you figure Karl Malone is so overrated? Is that based purely on the fact that he never won a ring, or do you have other reasons?
At the end of the day Malone is a:
* 2x MVP
* 14x All-NBA
* 4x All-Defence
* 1st all time in three throws (attempts and made)
* 3rd all time in points
* 8th all time in rebounds
* 13th all time in steals
* 4th all time career win shares (behind only Kareem, Wilt and Lebron)
* Averaged 25 points (on 52% FG), 10 rebounds and almost 4 assists over 18 NBA seasons
H's also impressively made the playoffs in every one of his 18 NBA seasons (and likely would have won two championships if not for his run in with the bulls) and he might well have had one of the most impressive physiques in the history of the NBA.
I could understand people making the argument that other PFs were better (Duncan, Barkley, Dirk, Garnett) and that he's not a top 3 PF as most rate him to be (though I would disagree on that) but to say hes one of the most overrated athletes ever seems a bit extrme.
