-Dennis Johnson comes to mind. Crazy underrated.

-Payton I think underrated because he didn't win a championship.

-Some of the chicago bull guards like steve kerr, paxon, etc. Kerr had some ridiculous seasons, like 50% from the field, 50% 3 pointers.

-Mookie Blaylock defensively.

-Kevin Johnson! Feel sorry that he never won a championship.

I don't think Mark Jackson is underrated. I believe he is 3rd alltime in assist. I think only idiots would under rate him.

I'm a big believer of duration of a career and transforming the way you play as you get older especially for a PG. With that said, Jason Kidd.

#2 all time in assist
#3 all time in steals
#3 all time in 3's made


Yet this dude is constantly barely in the top ten PG's ever talk. He should easily be in the top 5. Carried a very weak Nets team to the finals twice.

As a NYer I can honestly say that we all heard his name everyday when he played for the Knicks.

Derek Fisher..clutch in big games/moments. Pure numbers doesn't do him justice.

Since most younger and casual NBA fans aren't aware....I think Scottie Pippen being the Bulls de-facto point guard for the 2nd 3-peat would be a reasonable consideration.

At least in terms of moving the ball up the floor and then settling into the triangle.
