    There's only one right answer...Tracy McGrady (HOU).

    Robinson was probably overrated in his heyday, but I'd say he's underrated now. He may not have won a championship on his own, but he did win an MVP and scoring title, and his team was consistently in contention, despite mediocre supporting casts. Vinny Del Negro and Avery Johnson as your starting backcourt is pretty laughable in hindsight.

    Yao is way more overrated than Tmac..

    After this season for Warriors my pick is Steph Curry.
