People who get banned all the time regardless of your or their team comp are obviously in need of nerfbat, on different levels.
Just because a champ is continuously banned doesn't mean they are OP. Some champions are just so annoying to play against that it is easier to ban them out. Yes, you could make a team strategy to counter that champion, but in SoloQ team communication is much more difficult and is simply easier to ban out certain champs (e.g. Shen, Evelynn, Amumu, Malphite, Morgana, Alistar, etc...). Anyway, lets be honest, most people ban champions because that is what is being banned in tournaments at the time. I frequently see people ban Kassadin and then they run a full AD team comp. Lets not forget that Kassadin used to be banned 24/7, hasn't seen any nerfs or buffs, and now people don't ban him at all anymore. Pro players ban the champions that counter the team comp they are trying to run.
I think the majority of people will agree that Lee Sin needed nerfs. While I hate saying that about high skill cap champions, as mastering them should certainly be rewarded, Lee simply has the "whole package". Good sustain, amazing ganks, solid early to late game, high mobility and damage, AoE slow, etc. As a Lee Sin player, I certainly see where the nerfs are coming from. In my latest games I have been banning Lee pretty regularly.
