The 25 Greatest Underrated NBA Players of All Time

25. Alex English

Years: 1976-1991
Teams: Bucks, Pacers, Nuggets, Mavs
Two big things happened in the '80s: Crack hit and Alex English went H.A.M. Upon his arrival in Denver in 1980, English went on a decade-long scoring spree which saw him average 25.2 PPG. During that 10-year period English only averaged less than 20 PPG in one season, 1989-1990 when he posted 17.9 PPG. He won the scoring title in 1983 and put up 29.8 PPG in 1985-86. So he scored more than anyone else during the '80s, yet he was somehow overshadowed by Larry Bird, Magic Johnson and MJ-the NBA where amazing happens.
