Being some old dude who remembers Kareem’s playing days I can confidently say that any discussion about him being a Top-5 All-Timer would mean he is overrated. He was criticized by a wide range of people for many years for being a dog (the lazy kind, not the MMA kind) to the point that it was a running joke in the movie Airplane. Magic extended his career by many years.OK, so not Lebron. You are calling KG, Kareem, and Pettit overrated?
As others have said, that doesn’t mean he sucks. It simply means he wasn’t as good as some make him out to be. He was still a great player especially in his prime.
