Miami Heat AA Center

Miami Heat Ticket Prices Down 31% Since Lebron Left

Nobody expected the Heat to contend for a title without LeBron James, but the team is a lot better than the 8th seed in the East. Truth be told, Miami has injury issues with Chris Bosh and other valuable players. But the biggest problem is they have troubles winning at home. Their home record is 7-12, and is something they need to fix as soon as possible, if they want to hang on that 8th or 7th spot in the East. Their most important remaining games are home games, and most of them are winnable.

Miami Heat rank 5th in attendance at the American Airlines Center averaging 19,710 versus their 2013 season average of 19,982 which is only down 1.36%. On the road the Heat are drawing and average of 17,638 (92.6%) versus their 2013 season where their average was 19,090 a 7.60% drop. Miami Heat ticket prices for games at the American Airlines Center averaged $140.00 a ticket on the secondary market during the 2013-14 season and have fallen 31% currently to $96.00 per ticket on average.

Here is a look at the Top Five Heat Games Coming Up.

Pacers @ Heat, American Airlines Arena, January 23rd,
Starting price $33, Average price $79 (down -49.35%)
The Pacers beat the Heat twice this season, and are closing the gap for that last playoff spot. The Heat cannot tolerate losing at home from teams lower in the rankings, and if they want to turn the season around, they better start taking care of business at home. They will have few chances in January to do so. View all Heat vs Pacers Tickets for the American Airlines Arena.

Heat @ Pistons, The Palace of Auburn Hills, February 3rd,
Starting price $5, Average price $54 (down -43.15%)
The Pistons are the team that surges towards the playoffs. Since the Josh Smith trade, they have won seven in a row. This puts pressure on the Heat, who must secure their playoff spot by beating Detroit. They can start with the first matchup between the two that will be played in Detroit. View Detroit Piston tickets vs the Miami Heat at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Knicks @ Heat, American Airlines Arena, February 9th,
Starting price $41, Average price $146 (down -43.19%)
When you are fighting for a playoff spot, there is no place for sympathy. The Heat must take full advantage of the mess that is happening in New York and pile up some wins versus weak teams. A Knicks team without a legitimate threat outside Carmelo Anthony is an easy target, but sometimes, those targets can turn out to be dangerous surprises. Miami cannot afford that. View Heat vs Knicks tickets for the American Airlines Arena.

Heat @ Cavaliers, Quicken Loans Arena, February 11th,
Starting price $75, Average price $165 (down -24.24%)
From an emotional standpoint, it will be good for the Heat to get this over with. Lebron was in Miami, and the Heat won. Now, Miami will visit Lebron and his new looking Cavaliers team for the first time this season. While they might be friends off the court, it is evident that on the court, everything is different when these two teams meet. View Cavaliers vs Heat tickets for the Quicken Loans Arena.

Lakers @ Heat, American Airlines Arena, March 4th,
Starting price $63, Average price $202 (down -37.84%)
The Lakers are another team that the Heat must beat both at home and on the road in order to stockpile some wins. But the Lakers pose a special treat, given the history of Dwayne Wade and Kobe Bryant and their epic duels. Few years ago, they were considered the best shooting guards in the league, and their head to head duels were beyond words. Aside from Kobe, the Lakers have some other interesting weapons, such as Boozer and Lin. View Heat vs Lakers Tickets for the American Airlines Arena.

Los Angeles Clippers Basketball

Lakers & Cavaliers Cap Off Clippers Top Tickets Of The Week

With three games versus lesser competition, the Los Angeles Clippers took care of business, winning all three to keep pace with the leaders in the Western Conference. The Clippers have four games remaining on their season-long seven-game homestand, a prime opportunity to continue their climb to the top of the standings in the conference.

Week Recap: Monday night the Clippers hosted the Utah Jazz at STAPLES Center, winning 101-97 and defeating the Jazz for the 12th consecutive game. The Clippers played an uneven game but made the big plays down the stretch to earn the victory with Blake Griffin leading the way with 24 points. Chris Paul added 20 points and 8 assists. Even though the Clippers never led by more than five points, they never trailed in the fourth quarter. DeAndre Jordan added 19 rebounds to pace the Clippers on the inside. After a day off on Tuesday the Clippers hosted the struggling New York Knicks on New Year’s Eve. The Knicks, in their first year with Phil Jackson as the General Manager, currently have the worst record in the Eastern Conference. The Clippers handed the Knicks their 9th consecutive loss with a big third quarter effort. JJ Redick had 20 points to the lead the Clippers with both DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin adding double doubles. Jamal Crawford had 13 points for the Clippers, including three three-point shots to pass Peja Stojakovic for 9th place on the all-time NBA list. The Clippers wrapped up the week with a blowout victory on Saturday night over the Philadelphia 76ers. The Clippers blew out the hapless Sixers 127-91 behind a dominating second half performance. Chris Paul had 24 points, 12 assists and 8 rebounds in the victory with JJ Redick chipping in 17 points and Blake Griffin 15 points. The Clippers were able to rest their starters the entire fourth quarter due to their substantial lead, giving Paul and Griffin needed rest for the big Monday night matchup with the Atlanta Hawks.

The Clippers kicked off one of the four big home games this coming week, capping off a seven-game home stand. They hosted the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night. The Hawks are the biggest surprise of this year’s NBA season, leading the Eastern Conference with a 25-8 record. Although Blake Griffin scored 26 points and 10 rebounds the rest off the offence didn’t show up as Chris Paul only scored 10 points and DeAndre Jordan scored 15 with 16 rebounds the Clipper fell to the Hawks 98-107.

Up Next for the Clippers: Following an off day today the Clippers host the Lakers on Wednesday night, followed by a big Saturday afternoon home game versus the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas added elite point guard Rajon Rondo to the roster via trade two weeks ago. The presence of Rondo just might make the Mavericks a legitimate title contender. The Clippers wrap up the week when they host the Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon.

Where They Stand: With a 23-12 record the Clippers are in sixth place in the Western Conference.

Boston Celtics Ticket Prices

Celtics Tickets Prices Down 56% In 2015

It seems like just a season ago the Celtics were on top of the world and had an average ticket price of $150.00 a ticket. The average Celtics ticket price for games at the TD Garden have fallen to an average price of $66.00 per ticket on the secondary market currently and giving the opportunity for the Boston Strong to get some great deals on Celtics Tickets even though they are rebuilding.

For the Celtics, this season is officially over. All what is left is to see how high they will rank in the draft order. Ideally, the Celtics would love to be lower, but it is hard to believe they can fall to the top 5, even with Rajon Rondo traded. The remaining games are all for improving the youngsters, especially Marcus Smart, and a chance to boost the value of some of the veterans, so they can trade them. However, there are games that matter and can be fun.

Celtics versus Mavericks, January 2, Starting price $84, Average price $153
All you need to know about the importance of this game, is that the Celtics increased the price of the tickets. This will be the first return of Rajon Rondo, who was traded to the Mavericks just few days before. Aside from Ray Allen, all members of the Championship team in 2008 got a warm welcome to the Garden, and Rondo should be no exception. View all Celtics vs Mavericks tickets for the TD Garden.

Celtics @ Knicks, February 3, Starting price $44, Average price $103
The green team makes their annual visit at the Madison Square Garden, an arena famous as much as the TD Garden in Boston. Both teams are in the bottom of the Atlantic Division, but that doesn’t mean their duel will be less interesting. The teams have been rivals for years, and having a weaker team won’t stop that rivalry.View all Knicks tickets for the Celtics game at Madison Square Garden.

Celtics @ Lakers, February 22, Starting price $47, Average price $127
The duel between the two storied franchises will always attract attention, even when both are fighting for a higher draft pick. It will be a long time before any of the teams compete for a championship, but they will endure, as they have in the past. And the Lakers still have Kobe Bryant, one player that loves competing with Boston due to the history of the two teams. View all Lakers vs Celtics Tickets for the Staples Center.

Celtics @ Pacers, March 14, Starting price $6, Average price $63
Neither team will admit it openly, but both are hoping for a higher draft pick. Their duels might be direct factor in the draft order, as they are very close in the East rankings. The Pacers, at least on paper, are trying to get to the playoffs, but that is a pipe dream. With Paul George sidelined by the end of the season, and considering their salary situation, getting a high draft pick is a valuable asset for the future. View all Pacers vs Celtics tickets for the Bankers Life Field House.

Celtics versus Raptors, April 14, Starting price $15, Average price $45
The Celtics close out the season in Milwaukee the following night, but they say goodbye to their fans at the Garden versus what is now the clear winner of the Atlantic Division, Toronto Raptors. It will be a nice chance for the fans to show respect to their team for the last time this season, and hope that the next one will be better. The Celtics have chance to remake their roster this summer. View all Celtics vs Raptors tickets for the TD Garden.

Upcoming Clippers Schedule & Tickets through Jan 7th

While several NBA teams had a leisurely Christmas holiday, the Los Angeles Clippers had the unenviable task of playing four games in six days, with three of the four games against teams either ranked first or second in their respective conferences.

The Clippers lost three of four during the week, culminating with a tough loss on Saturday night at STAPLES Center versus the east leading Toronto Raptors.

Clippers Week Recap:
Monday night the Clippers traveled to San Antonio to face the defending NBA champion Spurs. San Antonio has been struggling of late due to a myriad of injuries and had lost four straight entering the home matchup with Los Angeles. The Spurs welcomed star point guard Tony Parker back from a five game absence. Parker scored 26 points, igniting the Spurs to a 125-118 victory. Chris Paul led the Clippers with 25 points and 9 assists, with Blake Griffin chipping in 22 and JJ Redick 21. After the tough loss in San Antonio the NBA schedule-makers didn’t do the Clippers any favors. Los Angeles had to travel to Atlanta to face a tough Atlanta Hawks team on the second night of a road back to back. The Clippers were unable to hold onto a thirteen-point lead, losing 107-104 when the Hawks outscored them by five points in the fourth quarter. Blake Griffin had 21 points and 11 rebounds, with Chris Paul chipping in 19 points. The Clippers started strong, including a 17-0 run in the second quarter, but just couldn’t hold on, with Atlanta securing the victory late. After the loss in Atlanta the Clippers returned home to STAPLES Center to host the west leading Golden State Warriors on Christmas night. The Clippers put together an impressive performance, winning 100-86. Jamal Crawford took over in the fourth period, scoring 12 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter to propel the Clippers to victory. The Clippers momentum didn’t last as they lost a tough one Saturday night to the Toronto Raptors, who had the benefit of largely having the Christmas week off. The Raptors outscored the Clippers by ten in the fourth quarter, sealing the victory behind a big game from point guard Kyle Lowry.

Up Next for the Clippers: After their toughest stretch of the season the Clippers continue their seven-game home stand with an easier stretch of games as they host two non-playoff contenders in the New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers. Both teams are well out of contention, with Philadelphia and New York currently featuring the two worst records in the NBA. The three-game stretch should be a good opportunity for the Clippers to get another win streak going and build some momentum for the following week when they host the Atlanta Hawks, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks.

Where They Stand: With a 20-11 record the Clippers are in sixth place in the Western Conference.

Lakers vs Cavaliers Tickets

Kobe Bryant or Lebron James Who Will Cost You More In The Wallet?

The discussion which player is better, Kobe or LeBron is one that can never end. While there are similarities between the two, one of them is a shooting guard, while the other is a small forward. Therefore, their style of play is different. But one thing they have in common is their popularity. Kobe is one of the most popular athletes in the NBA, and LeBron got there the past few seasons as well. LeBron proclaimed himself the King, even before he stepped a foot on an NBA court, and signed a multiyear deal with Nike. There are two aspects to consider when considering who is more valuable moneywise, and those are ticket prices for away games, and attendance for both home and away games. The Lakers are a mess this year, but people still want to see Kobe Bryant.

The attendance battle
One of the aspects to compare is who brings more fans to the arena. According to ESPN statistics, the Cavaliers are second on the list for average attendance at home games. They fit 20,562 visitors to their games, or on average 100% of the capacity of the arena. In 2013-2014 season, the one before LeBron joined, the Cavs ranked 16th in home game attendance, with average capacity of 84.3%. Cleveland is also the only team in the top 10 in attendance, to have a higher percentage on the road than home. The Cavs percentage for away games is 100.9. The Lakers are 10th on the attendance list, with an average of 18,940 visitors in the arena, or 99.4%. Their away games fill 93.3% of the capacity.

Versus Golden State Warriors Kobe avg $165 | Lebron avg $240
The Warriors are the hottest team in the NBA, and is traditionally one with high prices for tickets. The starting price for tickets when Lakers are in town for this year is $97, with $165 being the average price. The Golden State Warriors routed the Lakers in both duels they already played this season. When LeBron comes to town, the starting price is $151, a lot more than what it was last year, when the price was $62 per ticket for the lowest price. The average price of tickets for the game at Oracle Arena is $240.

Versus Chicago Bulls Kobe avg $132 | Lebron $189
The duel between Kyrie Irving and Derrick Rose will cost $154 for the lowest priced ticket, and $189 on average. This is one duel where LeBron might not be the central figure, but nevertheless, he is responsible for the higher price of the ticket. Even on Christmas day, when the Lakers visit the Bulls, the price is significantly lower, starting at $94, and going up to $132 on average.

Versus Dallas Mavericks Kobe avg $88 | Lebron $72
Dallas is probably one city where the price for watching Kobe Bryant in live is higher than the one for LeBron James. Tickets start at $52 when the Cavs are in town, and the average price is $72. While the difference is not big, the tickets for Kobe are more expensive, and understandably so, since Lakers are rivals with the Mavericks. The duel between the two teams will cost $61 at the lowest, and $88 for an average ticket price.

Versus Toronto Raptors Kobe avg $102 | Lebron avg $172

Versus New York Knicks Kobe avg $204 | Lebron avg $245
Even though New York is one of the worst teams in the league, ticket prices are high. Both James and Kobe have had some masterful performances at the Garden. Bryant holds the record for most points scored in the Garden. In 2009, he scored 61 points in a Lakers victory. This year, the tickets for the Lakers start at $110, and cost $204 on average. James is third on the list for average points in the Garden, right behind Kobe. When his Cavs come into town, fans will pay at least $132 to see his duel with Carmelo Anthony, and $245 on average.

Versus Memphis Grizzlies Kobe avg $74 | Lebron $161
Memphis has some of the lowest priced tickets in the league, which provides fans in the town to see their team and opposing stars in person for a cheap price. For example, the tickets for the duel with the Lakers, scheduled for March 6 start at $18, with the average price being $74. The starting price for the duel with the Cavs is higher, and set at $54, but the average price is lower and is $61.

Versus Los Angeles Clippers
The Purple and Gold come out strong in support of Kobe and the Lakers. The Clippers vs Lakers game is on January 7th and has a $75 get in price while the Clippers vs Cavaliers January 16th is 33.3% higher to get in the door at $100.00 per ticket. To sit in the section 209 row 9 for the Lakers will cost you $135 while the same ticket for the Cavs game is 22% higher at $165 a ticket and finally if you wanted to sit in section 111 row 3 (Center Court) for the Lakers game would run you $600 per ticket and for the Cavaliers expect to pay 62% more at $975 per ticket. Don’t foget that the Clippers and Lakers do play each other 3 more times at the Staples Center than the Clippers play the Cavs.

Clippers Warriors Tickets Christmas Day Staples Center

Clippers Tickets Deals For December “The Best Bang For Your Dunk”

‘Tis the Season of Dunks” for the Los Angeles Clippers! The Clippers ended November with an 11-5 record placing them three games back from their rivals the Golden State Warriors. LA plays 11 games at the Staples Center during December with the biggest one being the Clippers vs Warriors Christmas Day game which is also Argyle Santa Hat Giveaway! Don’t miss any of the action!

With No Service Fees and 100% Verified Clippers Tickets as the Official Partner of the Clippers and an office right next to the Staples Center for FREE Pick up of your tickets. Barry’s Tickets has you covered no matter your Holiday Budget!

Clippers vs Timberwolves, December 1, Starting price $6, Average price $45
The Timberwolves are a young team, and this will be the first time the first round pick Andrew Wiggins comes to town. He might not be ready for stardom, and is still a work in progress, but the kid shows flashes from time to time about how great he can be. The duel could be a lot more fun if Rubio wasn’t injured, but there is still enormous potential for an exciting game. Minnesota is a lottery team, but the guys play hard, they compete for 48 minutes, and provide a highlight or two. Clippers vs Timberwolves tickets are still available.

Clippers vs Magic, December 3, Starting Price $7, Average price $48
Tobias Harris, Nikola Vucevic, Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton are a young core that can do some serious damage in the next 2-3 years. For now, Vucevic is the only proven player from the group. The Serbian center can go for 20 and 20 at any given night, and the Clippers must contain him in order to win. Deandre Jordan will have his hands full, but he might serve a poster for Vucevic.You can purchase Clippers vs Magic tickets for the Staples Center.

Clippers vs Pelicans, December 6, Starting Price $18, Average price $50
Blake Griffin versus Anthony Davis! Can the casual fan ask for more? Probably not. Two of the best power forwards in the league go head to head in a matchup that should provide enough entertainment and highlights. Davis is arguably the MVP of the first month, and if he continues his strong play, and the Pelicans make the playoffs, there is no reason he should not win it. The Pelicans will visit the Clippers once more this season, but at the moment, both teams are at full strength and playing good basketball. Purchase Clippers vs Pelicans tickets.

Clippers vs Suns, December 8, Starting price $7, Average Price $73
Two seasons ago, Eric Bledsoe was backing up Chris Paul. Now he is running his show in Phoenix, where Coach Jeff Hornacek has the Suns playing hard and at a fast pace. Besides Bledsoe, the Suns have two more point guards that can cause damage in Dragic and Thomas. But none of them comes close to the level of CP3 and his playmaking and shot making abilities. And the Suns frontline is weak compared to the big guys the Clippers boast. The Clippers already beat the Suns on 15th November. Order Clippers vs Suns tickets today.

Clippers vs Pistons, December 15, Starting Price $10, Average Price $62
Few teams can match the frontline of the Clippers, and the Pistons are one of them. Their record doesn’t reflect their talent, but Andre Drummond is a beast, and Greg Monroe is one of the best copies of Tim Duncan and his sound and fundamental post game. The Pistons are still figuring things out, but they can be dangerous. And they are the Eastern Conference team leader in alley-oops with Drummond reaching for every ball that comes close to the basket.Order Clippers vs Pistons tickets today.

Clippers vs Pacers, December 17, Starting price $6, Average Price $80
Even without Paul George and Lance Stephenson, Indiana has managed to hang in the top 8 in the East. After a few games, the team is playing motivated and engaged. The Pacers already have some quality wins (versus Dallas, Miami and Chicago), and there is no reason to doubt they will bring their A game. Roy Hibbert and David West are a good inside duo, posing challenges for Griffin and Jordan. CP3 might have his way with the point guards of Indiana, but he will need help to carry the Clippers in this one. Order Clippers vs Pacers tickets today.

Clippers vs Bucks, December 20, Starting price $23, Average price $39
Giannis Antetokounmpo is a reason enough to tune into this game. The Greek Freak is playing excellent basketball at the moment. Coach Jason Kidd has his team playing inspiring basketball, and his players give their all. Few people had the Bucks at No.4 in the East going into December, but the Bucks are going back to their “Fear the Deer” campaign. They are a dangerous team, and rookie Jabari Parker is playing better by the day. Order Clippers vs Bucks tickets today.

Clippers vs Warriors, December 25, Starting Price $72, Average Price $104
These two teams have a long history in the past few years. Every matchup brings tension as a playoff game, and players from both teams have admitted they do not like each other. They’ve met in the 2014 playoffs, with the Clippers advancing. But this year, with Steve Kerr on the coaching seat, the Warriors are playing even more efficient basketball with more ball movement. The Splash Brothers are killing it, and Curry is a time bomb waiting to happen. The Warriors are second in the Western Conference, just a half game behind Memphis going into December. Not to mention, a Christmas matchup is always a special one. Order Clippers vs Warriors tickets for their Christmas Day game at Staples Center today.

Clippers vs Raptors, December 27, Starting Price $37, Average Price $75
The Raptors have been arguably the best team in the league over the first month. They lost to the Western leading Grizzlies to close out November, but they are still the best in the East. Nobody expected them to be this good, but they are proving experts wrong. Fresh off an extension, Kyle Lowry has matured into a great leader at the point guard position. While many see the highlights from Demar Derozan and Terrence Ross, Lowry is the machine that carries the Raptors. A matchup with CP3 is a great chance for Lowry to show his worth. Purchase Clippers vs Raptors Tickets today.

Clippers vs Jazz, December 29, Starting Price $27, Average Price $59
After wining some games to start the season, the Jazz are back where they belong, in the lottery. They should stay there for a season or two more, but they have solid young guys that can be dangerous. Gordon Hayward is one of them, and this season, the Clippers are having troubles with small forwards. Hayward has proven he is worth the money Utah put in him, and he might go off versus the Clippers. The team from Los Angeles won the first meeting between the teams. Purchase Clippers vs Jazz tickets today.

Clippers vs Knicks, December 31, Starting Price $40, Average Price $160
There are few things that are more entertaining on New Year’s Eve than a matchup between the Clippers and the Knicks. Fate didn’t let Carmelo and CP3 to play together, so they must compete against each other. The Knicks are still adjusting to the triangle, and Melo is having back issues, but he should be healthy for the game. Clippers vs Knicks tickets are available for all sections of the Staples Center.

Cleveland Cavs Court

NBA Average Ticket Prices

Cleveland has become the “IT” town! With the signing of King James the average Cavaliers ticket price on the secondary market went from low of $47 in 2012 to now being the highest average price on the secondary market with a $195 per ticket average in the 2014-15 NBA regular season. Last season the Cleveland Cavaliers attendance was 710,522 making them 16th of 30 teams this year they are moved up 10 spots already with their attendance being at 164,496 making them 6th of 30.

Then there is the Browns picking Johnny “Football” in the NFL Draft which brought the average Cleveland Browns ticket price ticket price on the secondary market from $70.00 to $116.00 per ticket, and even the Cleveland Indians average ticket price went up to $57.00 per ticket from a low of $31 just a season ago. Now all Cleveland needs is an NHL team.

Here is a look at the average secondary market ticket prices for the 2014-2015 NBA season so far.

The King Of New York

Besides the Cavaliers the New York Knicks with Carmelo staying and ex Lakers Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher coming aboard have brought hope back to New Yorkers that the Knicks will back to winning ways again, their attendance has jumped from last season being ranked 18th to this season being ranked 9th and while Knicks Tickets price average is second at $162 per ticket its actually down from last season when it was $200 per ticket.

The Golden Child

If the Golden State Warriors were a stock then Mad Money’s Jim Cramer would be screaming “BUY BUY BUY” starting back in 2011-2012 their attendance was ranked 22nd of 30 and the average Warriors Tickets price was just $55.00 per ticket fast forward just two seasons the Warriors are ranked 2nd in the league in attendance and their average ticket price is now $102. Who wouldn’t want a 85% rate on their return. The Warriors are currently ranked second in the Western Conference behind the Grizzlies.

Oh Canada

The Toronto Raptors might seem to have come out of nowhere to be currently ranked number one in attendance as well as in first place in the Eastern Conference but the Raptors have been on a steady uptick for a few seasons now. In 2011-12 they were ranked 23rd in attendance with an average ticket price of $85, 2012-13 ranked 19th in attendance, 2013-14 ranked 9th in attendance with a $50.00 average ticket price to 2013-2014 ranked 1st in attendance with the Raptors tickets average price of $120 per ticket.

The Good The Bad The Ugly

The Los Angeles Lakers have some of the most devoted fans in the NBA including Jack and numerous other celebrities with the glue holding everything together for the Lakers and their fans being Kobe Bryant. Last season the Lakers were 27th in attendance without him but still commanding one of the highest league price averages of over $168 per ticket this year they are ranked 5th in attendance with Lakers Tickets averaging $98.00 per ticket and having a 3-13 record doesn’t help the matter. With a 51% decrease in ticket prices and getting to see what might be one of the last seasons for Kobe play live makes the Lakers an attractive bargain for the price.

Help I’ve Fallen And I Cant Get Up

The Philadelphia 76ers are on life support and it doesn’t look good. The last time they were ranked in the top 10 in attendance was back in the 2002-2003 season where they were 9th. Fast forward to the 2011-2012 season where they were ranked 14th with an average ticket price of $97 to the last two seasons being ranked 30th of 30 in NBA attendance and 76ers tickets prices falling from an average of $75.00 per ticket to $30 per ticket.

Who are the Most Overrated NBA Players 2014-2015 season

The NBA is full of big names; however, sometimes players can become well known without actually being that good. These overrated players tend to make a lot of money even though no one can really explain why. Here’s a list of the most overrated players in the NBA for this coming season:

Deron Williams: Williams averaged only 14.3 points per game and 6.1 assists per game this season with the Brooklyn Nets. These numbers would be great for a point guard coming off the bench, but Williams is a starter and making almost $20 million a season. The Nets would be better off trading him, but Williams’s huge contract and sad performance makes him very unattractive to potential teams.

Chandler Parsons: For a small forward making about $14 million a season, 16.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4 assists per game just does not cut it. Parsons simply does not produce well enough to earn the money he is making. There is a reason the Houston Rockets got rid of him this season despite having the cap room to be able to keep him.

Josh Smith: Smith has been in the NBA for 10 seasons, yet his style of play has not improved at all. Smith shoots less than 30 percent from beyond the arc and less than 55 percent from the free throw line. That’s right—Smith makes over $13 million a season and he can barely hit a free throw.

Dwight Howard: Howard puts up great numbers pretty consistently with the Houston Rockets, but what he lacks is leadership. Howard does not seem to have the passion and drive to lead a team to a championship. The Rockets have a good team, but they lack the veteran leadership that Howard is expected to provide. Until he gets an attitude adjustment, Howard will never be a legend.

Tony Allen: Allen may be one of the best defenders in the NBA, but he simply cannot play offense. He is a big reason for the Memphis Grizzles offensive struggles this past season. Allen averaged only 9 points per game this past season while making less than 25 percent of his three point shots and only 62.8 percent of his free throws.

O.J. Mayo: Mayo brought nothing but confrontations with the head coach and sub-par effort to the Milwaukee Bucks this season. Mayo averaged under 12 points a game and clearly was unhappy with his new team. Hopefully a new coach and the addition of Jabari Parker will encourage Mayo to try a little harder this season.

Carmelo Anthony: Anthony is without a doubt a very exciting player to watch, and the fans in New York will surely continue to fill the stands to see him play. However, Anthony is about to make $22 million this coming season; and he has a hard time leading his team to the playoffs. Anthony puts up large numbers, but until he steps up as a leader on the Knicks the team will continue to lose.
