We look at the NBA players who we think are most underappreciated craftsmen in the latest episode of The Step Back's Day-to-Day NBA Podcast, hosted by Jason Mann.

David Ramil of the Locked on Heat podcast joins the show to discuss his recent article on Paul Millsap, how he's evolved from a role player to an all-NBA player late in his career, how he deflects the spotlight and how he continues to thrive despite continuous trade rumors.

We also look at other players who we view as underappreciated for their on-court value, aesthetic appeal or how they've developed their games. We discuss Jae Crowder's evolution as a player, Al Horford's poise and ability to facilitate, how Nicolas Batum has tried to emulate Scottie Pippen, George Hill's adaptability and defensive chops, Mike Conley's pick-and-roll craft and smart decision making, Andre Roberson filling in the gaps for the Thunder, and Blake Griffin evolving from a dunk artist to a complete player.
