  • And they said I was crazy.
A recent list compiling the most overrated things in America appeared earlier this week on And though certainly there are things on the list we can all agree upon (Silly Bandz, cable TV and the iPad, for starters), only one human had the dubious honor of being listed in the overrated things countdown: our very own LeBron James.

The list made the valid point that James is technically always destined to be considered "overrated" until he starts wearing rings. And while that may be true, it hardly matters, as the barrage of kiss-ass campaigns has only just begun.

But one thing is for sure: Somewhere in this world, DeShawn Stevenson is nodding in approval.
