All-Overrated NBA Team, 2015 Preseason Edition

October 19th, 2015 by Dan Favale Leave a reply »
There is a lot to learn from the NBA's 2015 preseason.

There is also a lot to un-learn.

Not all players are offering an accurate preview of what awaits them during the regular season. Some use unusual amounts of playing time and unsustainably high volume to elevate their numbers and give the appearance of a breakout or sudden leap. Others are just being looked upon too favorably, posting stat lines that look flashy but don't pass more in-depth tests.

These performances, while perhaps pleasing on paper, will make up our "All-NBA Overrated Preseason Team." It's a roster that will be comprised of five starters, a backup at each position and a sixth-man slot just for kicks. It will also identify the biggest overachievers or most mistakenly labeled contributors.

Selected players are not the victims of any vendettas, and their inclusion is not meant to imply that they're worthless. They're merely the most colossal caveats—some of the biggest reasons why we take preseason displays with gargantuan-sized grains of salt.
