I would probably have to say its Marcus Camby. He doesn't get the attention other big stars get but led the league in blocks last season and came second in rebounds. Hes also a terrific defensive player. As far as I know the nuggets traded him to a team. I can't remember which team he went to though. That was a bad move for the nuggets.

One player that hardly anyone talks about in the league that I think is a very good all around player is Caron Butler. The guy averages over 20ppg, 7 rebounds per game, 5 assits per game and 2 steals a game. In my opinion hes under rated and to think that Washington got him in a trade where they traded away Kwame Brown & Laron Profit. They traded away 2 scrubs for an all-star in Butler.

Thanks for the information. I've heard and seen him play but did not know he was that good.

Hes real good if you look at his stats overall every season you see that he has improved in mostly every single stat every season. I remember when he was draft number 10 by Miami and said that the 9 teams that passed him up were all going to pay because he was going to turned out to be a very good player and so far he has kept his word because out of the 9 players that were selected in front of him only Amare Stoudemire and Yao Ming have become very good players but none of them are as gifted as Butler in his all around game because he does everything in the court.

i agree with you but it may because his offensive game isn't as great, but hes only known for his defense. I think he was in the top 3 players for most blocks per game last season. I'm a rockets fan and from watching them play i believe Rafer Alston is quite underrated. I mean there are times when he isn't able to pull-through but he has come to prove himself worthy of having a spot on the team especially later in the season. When he was injured, it felt like we weren't missing much until we started losing. When he came back, things were working like wonders. He was a piece that made the rockets team what it was even if they were playing without yao ming.

I never heard of Rafer Alston but i'm sure he was around during there 20+ game winning streak. That was something else. Alot thought since Yaos out they had no hope of making the playoffs.
