NEW YORK (WFAN) – Breaking news: People don’t like A-Rod!

OK, not exactly a surprise. Don’t stop the presses.

Alex Rodriguez was voted (among his MLB peers) as the most overrated player in baseball last season. Now the Yankees star can count himself among America’s most disliked athletes, according to a poll published by Forbes.

But two other Tri-State area athletes came in above the “Lightning Rod.”

Kris Humphries of the Nets, due to his high-profile divorce drama with reality star Kim Kardashian, took the No. 5 slot.

Jets wide receiver Plaxico Burress ranked highest of the locals at No. 3 after serving nearly 21 months in prison on a gun charge.

Michael Vick and Tiger Woods were tied for the top dishonor. Also on the list: Ndamukong Suh (4), LeBron James (6), Kobe Bryant (7), Terrell Owens (8) and and NASCAR driver Kurt Busch (10).

Last May, A-Rod cracked the Top 50 of Forbes’ annual “Celebrity 100″ compilation. He ranked No. 49 among the most powerful people-slash-groups in the entertainment business.
