Definitely Elgin is overlooked. I think his stint with the Clippers really hurt him with the Lakers family. I think if he would have taken a position in the FO with the Lakers, then he would rank much higher.

Underrated is being used loosely in this thread... a few of these players have been give lots of praise and credit for the things they did in the league - it's just that more time has passed and they're talked about less.

A few that I agree are truly underrated: Pistol, Moses, McHale, Bernard King, Kevin Johnson & Baylor...

But guys like Isiah Thomas and Hakeem Olajuwon are not overrated. They are given plenty of praise. Thomas just manages to play down his amazing career by doing bone-headed things as a coach & executive.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

This... He was already way past his prime with 2 bad knees when he entered the NBA... In his best days, I would put him above Patrick Ewing, easily...
