Top 5 Overrated Athletes Ever

Here are the top 5 overrated athletes of all-time as I see it.

5. Mike Tyson- Who did he beat that was any good? When he was the Champ, boxing wasn't any good. To put him in the class of Ali, Frazier, etc. . . is ridiculous!

4. Derek Jeter- .315 avg, 15 hr, 75 rbi avg for career. Are these $19 million stats. Are these even HOF stats? Not in my book.

3. Bill Walton- 13.3 ppg, 10.5 rpg. Are these HOF numbers? Hortford did this last year as a rookie. Besides, he is one of those guys that tries to build the "well, when I played" stories to be bigger than they were.

2. Scottie Pippen- 16.1 ppg, 6.4 rpg, 5.2 apg. Are those the stats of a top 50 player of all-time? Give me a break! He needs to thank Jordan for his career.

1. Joe Namath- 173 td, 220 int, 50% comp. These are Michael Vick numbers, not HOF numbers.

Well, there you go. Give me your top 5.

Great are some "overrated out of college football guys" that came to mind...(I realize you picked professional athletes, so I thought I would throw these college guys out there, who NFL scouts whiffed on)
5. Akili Smith (really---great choice Cincy!!)
4. Tony Mandarich (I still have that SI issue with him on the cover)
3. KiJana Carter--Hmmm...I think this is another Cincy blunder.
2. Aundray Bruce and Lincoln Kennedy---these may be homer choices but they were just plain awful!
1. I even have to discuss this one...two words...RYAN LEAF

I'll give 2:

2. Quinthy 'truly blessed' Carter
1. David Archer...the fact that he played NFL ball puts him on this list. He sucked. A 10 yr old in Mansfield, Ga despised that joke of a QB when he played for the coons.
