In our latest power rankings we rank the top 5 most underrated players in the NBA
The season is almost upon us and that means it is time to start talking player personnel. Whether that be a team’s particular roster make-up or who the best players are the NBA.
Ultimately, these discussions will lead to who are some of the most underrated players in the NBA. This is a difficult question in the fact that “underrated” is all relative to who’s deciding. Die hard NBA fans never seem to fall into underrated discussions because they live and breathe the league and know the talented players.

But mainstream-wise, a ton of smaller market teams often get forgotten about due to lack of exposure. The terrible Los Angeles Lakers seemed to be on television an obscene amount last season for being such a terrible team. But that is how exposure works; in favor of a larger market.
Fair or not, sometimes great players go unnoticed by the general public due to a lack of appreciation for what they do. So the goal in all of this is to give just players their due and share how talented some these guys are; albeit under the radar.
One note is the most underrated player in the league the last few years has been Mike Conley Jr. But due to the fact that many continue to mention him as the most underrated player, he is not on this list. At some point, when people call you the most underrated you then become properly rated and appreciated…and he has hit that point.
As normal, there is the disclaimer that this is not a scientific method by any means. These are simply the top 5 most underrated guys entering the 2015-2016 season.
