Which is the most overrated team in the NBA?

Dallas Mavericks......11%
Detroit Pistons......11%
Boston Celtics......10%
Houston Rockets......10%

FAST FACTS: Poll was taken before the Celtics' recent 2–4 stretch.... The Mavs lost in the first round of the past two playoffs, last season with Jason Kidd.... The Pistons went a mediocre 10–11 with Allen Iverson after acquiring him in November, before winning seven in a row through Sunday.... Despite a record of 21–14 through Sunday, the Rockets were seventh in the West.
