When it comes to celebrities and athletes, we're tired of seeing so much ado about nothing. Pam Anderson? Sure, she has a couple of obvious talents, but beyond that? And Kevin Costner? Puh-leeze! So Page 2 put a matchup bracket together and wants you to tell us who gets the most attention with the least amount of ability. Round One starts today. WHO'S OVERRATED?

Anna Kournikova isn't gracing Wimbledon this year, but Page 2's Patrick Hruby is. And as Patrick roams the hallowed grounds, he finds a bevy of candidates to fill the void left when Anna's bad back forced her out. Some of these hotties can even play a little tennis, including the fetching Maria Sharapova, a first-round winner.

The Sports Guy 10 Burning Questions
Arizona's Luke Walton won't be a lottery pick in Thursday's draft. He might not even go in the first round. But Page 2's Bill Simmons sees a lot to like in the way Bill's kid plays the game. And that's why Luke might be able to save the NBA.
She made Dennis Rodman cry, and and she cracked wise with Tom Arnold. Now Lisa Guerrero will be Monday Night Football's new sideline reporter. Page 2's Eric Neel caught up with her for 10 Burning Questions.

There are a lot of athletes in sports today whose reputations exceed them. We somehow pared the list down to our top 10 most overrated athletes:

10]  Chris Webber
Doesn't battle it out under the basket. Averages 60 games per season. Hasn't done what it takes to move from "very good" to "great." Struggles in the clutch.
9]  Pavel Bure
The Russian Rocket? For years he's been struggling even more than the Russian space program. And he comes at a higher price.
8]  Jake Plummer
Career passer rating: 69.0. Career TD passes: 90. Career INTs: 112. Sure, he played in the football wasteland that is Arizona, but that's no excuse: Plummer did nothing to elevate the Cardinals.

Yankees 5-1   A's 10-1
Braves 6-1   Cubs 12-1
Mariners 7-1   Twins 12-1
Giants 8-1   Cardinals 15-1
Red Sox 8-1   Astros 15-1
