Si Players Nba Poll

WHO IS THE NBA'S MOST UNDERRATED PLAYER?

Joe Johnson, Hawks G 9%

John Salmons, Bulls G 6%

Lamar Odom, Lakers F 4%

Gerald Wallace, Bobcats F 4%

David Lee, Knicks C 3%

FAST FACTS

Johnson may be a short-timer on this list, given his 21.2-point average for on-the-rise Atlanta.... Wallace also may be playing his way off, having elevated his rebounding average from 7.8 in 2008--09 to 11.5 this season.... Four '09 All-Stars besides Johnson received votes: Raptors forward Chris Bosh, Lakers forward-center Pau Gasol, Hornets forward David West and (seriously?) Cavs forward LeBron James.
