- NBA Most Overrated as Written by Charley Rosen at Foxsports.com
In this article, Rosen argues that KG, CP3, and Chris Bosh – and others – are overrated. Rosen’s article has a few legit points, but he has no real proof to his argument. What is his standard?
In the article Rosen claims that KG is not clutch and does not come through in important games. He also states that CP3 does not play defense and is very ineffective in half court offense out side of a pick and roll.
Anyway. Take a read.

- All-Metrodome Team
Tyler Mason, from MLB.com, put together an 18 man team of the best players that played in the Metrodome starting in 1982. It mostly players from the 1987 ’91 Championship Teams, Paul Molter and Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau and Joe Nathan.
- 1B: Kent Hrbek
- 2B: Chuck Knoblauch
- SS: Greg Gagne
- 3B: Gary Gaetii
- C: Joe Mauer
- OF: Kirby Puckett
- OF: Dan Gladden
- OF: Tom Brunansky
- OF: Torii Hunter
- DH: Paul Molitor and Justin Morneau
- Pitchers: Frank Viola, Bert Blyleven, Brad Radke, and Johan Santana.
- Relief Pirchers: Joe Nathan and Rick Aguilera
- Manager: Tom Kelly
I am good with 98% of the list. Gladden is questionable when you look at Shane Mack. But I am not sure where Morneau fits on the team, but he does deserve it – AL MVP.
Paul Molitorat DH is the biggest question mark. He had one great season in 1996 and then fell off quickly. But I am not sure there is a better choice available than Molitor.
PS – Brett Favre = Still Retired.
