I can't imagine a discussion asking if someone is the most overrated player in the history of the Magic not belonging in the Magic forum. Call me crazy.
However, seriously, why would you (op) consider Dwight to be the most overrated player in our team's history? How about stating a position, getting a discussion going, not just "I came to this conclusion, discuss".
Honestly, this part of the Forum should be discussing our "current" Magic players. Not ones that were here and then left... especially given the circumstances around how Dwight left the team. I really can go on for hours on end on how we should just erase this guy from our minds because he didnt accomplish anything from a team perspective and did a great job of just promoting himself while he gave us lip service about winning and what he needed.... and never placing the blame on himself... which he still does today with LA.
Screw the ratings.... no one outside of us really considered Dwight as being a supreme Center. They always thought he was tops in defense and rebounding, and always...always trashed his offensive skills.
Now Dwight is seeing less of the ball.... which is funny because I dont hear any of the Analyst who bagged on SVG for not getting Dwight the ball, bag on LA for repeating the same perceived steps. Right now Dwight is averaging around 10 shot attempts.... Where in Orlando Dwight averaged 12. The system Dwight plays in doesnt fair well for Dwight because the players that are running it are older and slower than he is. Then add the Kobe factor and you get Dwight.... the now over rated player.... which again I think we were the only ones who rated him as high.
