Martin is one of those guys that was perennially underrated for mediocre teams, then was underrated for so long and people caught on that he actually became overrated and was the centerpiece the Thunder received in their James Harden trade.

Martin had a great 2012-13, playing third fiddle to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. But when Westbrook went down in the playoffs and he was forced to haul a bigger load offensively, Martin, and the rest of the Thunder came up short.

Martin’s unusual shooting stroke lead many to question whether his touch would translate to the NBA game, but through the years, he has always been one of the best shooters in the league.
