Who's Yo Daddy    

Michael Lewis has cast Shane Battier as an underrated, unheralded underdog, just like his other subjects.  But jeez... Battier spent his entire college career on national television getting fellated by the face of college basketball.  Anyone who watched college ball in the late 90s and early 2000s knows Shane Battier and his game.  While his lack of pro recognition still makes him Lewis territory, I don't think the gravity of Battier's newfound underrating makes him a sad story or anything.  Do we really need to give Daryl Morey a medal for agreeing with Dick Vitale?

But it's still a good piece.  Good enough that it almost makes me forget that every charge Battier takes is complete fucking baloney, and that he's a cheating piece of shit.

  • Great article, despite a couple uncomfortable revelations:

    - A Duke grad is apparently the greatest undervalued player in the NBA.
    - Manu Ginobili has "no imbalance whatsoever in his game".

    I'm curious what other players made the "top 15" undervalued list.
