  • Top 10 Forgotten NBA Superstars

    NBA greats like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird will always be discussed and widely known among basketball fans, and for good reason. However, there are plenty of other phenomenal players from the past that many younger fans haven’t heard of.

    These guys dominated (most of) the competition and were considered as elite during their primes. Still, even fans who watched them play have widely forgotten these players until they hear their names on TV or read them on the internet.

    Of course, some fans will remember all of these guys well; we’re speaking generally! Anyway, here are 10 forgotten NBA superstars.

    How do you defined the term underrated? Because many if not all of the former players in the video were NBA All-Stars during their careers. Some are even current and potential Hall Of Famers. The video was entertaining to watch though...💯

      #1 should be Bobby Jones clearly!

        C'mon. Darrell Griffith? Should of had Adrian Dantley. Alex English and Rick Barry for sure. Bill Walton should be #1.

          I liked Kevin Johnson but he basically injured himself out of the Hall of Fame.

              I don't see how anyone can forget Kevin Johnson. His statistics speak just as much as his highlights. I watched him do a lot more than just his biggest highlight of dunking over the DREAM (Olujawon) which I didn't see on this clip (all good) but KJ isn't as overrated as people think. I also remember him outplaying Magic in the late 80's. Of course I remember Thunder Dan Majerle who played alongside my dude KJ. But who is that High Flying Bobby Jones? Off the hook dunks. White Men Can't What? Good video. Thanks for sharing.

                          Just an honorable mention, for I know they were not superstars. Predrag Stojaković was pretty good. Detlef Schrempf won two sixth man of the year awards. I loved KJ back in the day and freaked out when he dunked on Hakeem Olajuwon.

                                  Hal Greer shot free throws with a jump shot. 80% for career.
                                  Bobby Jones & Sidney Moncrief should have been in the hall of fame on their 1st year of eligibility. Hopefully, like Artis Gilmore, the will finally make it.

                                          I do not know much about KJ's after his basketball career. I heard things about his political career, but I do not know if any of it is credible. I only know that I felt KJ was the Step Curry of the 80's and 90's. He was not as fortunate to put his injury tendency behind him like Curry has. So he never got over the hump to being an all time great like Curry is trending toward. KJ still was a tremendous talent in my book. I felt he was better than John Stockton, the original Isaiah Thomas, and any point guard of his era. He was the only one of them who could really compete with Michael Jordan one on one. He will always have that in my book.

                                                  The player who was the most forgotten player for me is Lafayette 'Fats' Lever. He is the best pound for pound rebounder in NBA history to me. He was only about 6ft 3ins tall, weighing about 185lbs.

                                                  • G23Farrakhan52

                                                    Kevin Johnson is not forgotten by me. He was the only player who Michael Jordan could not guard very well in his prime. He was a very dominant driver in the prime of his career.

                                                      Also by me but you cannot deny that was befallen by a lot of contemptuousness while his career and after it.

Moncrief: 79-90, KJ: 87-99, Thunder Dan: 88-01. Anybody remember KJ dunkin' on Hakeem Olajuwon... I have a old school Slam-Ups poster of it.
