Biggest Badass in NBA History

Who do you think is the biggest badass, jerk, bad personality, big ego, etc in the nba? Can't really think of many in basketball. Example like Pacman Jones or TO in football.

lots of guys

Sprewell was an a.ss. He chased Jerome Kersey down with a 2x4 at practice once. He choked his coach at a practice. He pulled a gun on a reporter. He was asked if he was gonna have one of his dogs put to sleep after it mauled his daughter, and he just said "why would I do that?". He turned down a 3 year 21million contract by saying he had a family to feed.

OH criminal you mean,trouble maker outside the game

I like Iverson personally but I guess he has enough outside negatives from being in jail, to pulling a gun on his cousin,getting sued for his bodyguards braking some dude off. I like AI though. He is not as self center as TO though. Artest getting buckwild in Dirty D too. I also like Ron as well,cuz I want dude on my team like Kobe do. That sh^t in Detroit was wild though dude set it off. Yeah I hear you on that Sprewell cat. Dude was a nut too. I like him to though lol choked that fool. Rodman did come to mind first but AI got out of the box cuz John Thompson was able to get him out. He went to jail for Mayhem thats real bad.

Pistons had best trio:

Pistons had best trio: Mahorn, Laimbeer and Rodman. Jeff Ruland was no slouch. Maurice Lucas was one tough dude. Not really a jerk, but one of the last guys I'd want to fight. His "fight" with Darryl Dawkins was memorable.

I wouldn't mess with Karl Malone either. I don't think he was a bad guy, but he sure was built. Isiah still has scars. Kermit Washington, who put Rudy Tomjanovich in the hospital was guilty of the dirtiest play in NBA history, so he belongs on the list. I gotta agree with Artest. Artis Gilmore was tremendously strong as was Wil.

For guards, Van lier and Sloan were tough as nails. John Starks has to be on the list too. I know most of these names are old, but we are talking about history.

Iverson was in jail

He went to prison for mayhem. John Thompson had to talk the state into letting him out. His moms begged Thompson to get him out. Mayhem is a serious charge. Someone had to get disfigured for that kind of charge.

artest running into the stands

He had every right to be mad and react, but people keep making excuses for him while over looking the fact that he attacked the wrong dude. He ran right by the guy who threw the beer and started whooping on some innocent fan.

I am behind ron on that though

I would have done the same but that caused a riot in a stadium. He is a good dude all and all but his image is worst than he is.

I like Ron a lot and I don't hold that incident over his head at all. He is far from perfect and he had some rough times in Sac as well, but I'll take him anyday. I just found it funny that even Artest defended his own actions by saying he felt attacked but never mentioned he attacked the wrong dude.

BadAss

Jerry Sloan (As a coach he squared up to Dennis Rodman. That is badass.)

Karl Malone (Just look at him... From a distance. Get too close and he may knock you unconscious.)

Dennis Rodman (Always sacrificing his body, p*ssing off the other team and headbutts galore.)

Bill Laimber (Another one of Detroit's bad boys. No regard for the opposition's safety.)

Jason Williams killed his Chauffeur

Jason Williams gets the retirement badass award, dude flat out went bat-$hit crazy when he retired, toting guns and holding himself up in hotel rooms, killing people while giving people tours of his house!

Jayson Williams

yeah, he was a bad person. He used to shoot his own dog's over lost bets and stuff. He had zero regard for life.

Charles Oakley

Oak would knock you down if you even thought about coming into the paint. Teams wouldnt even think about driving into the lane with Oakley, Mason, and Ewing. Screw the Detroit Badboys. Oakley and Mason would've kicked all their asses by themselves. Oakley and Mason made their reputations by being badasses.

baylor

Elgin Baylor was that player in the old days. refs were afraid to call penalties against him because they were afraid they would get beat up. He fought his own teamates and when someone made him look bad, he made them look worse by kicking the crap out of them!

Kermit Washington's Punch

I think Kermit Washington's blindside punch on Rudy T was the scariest thing I ever saw on a basketball court. It looked as if he could have killed Tomjanovich. I don't know if this is true, but the real irony is that by most accounts, Kermit Washington was supposedly a good guy.

If I'm correct, Jayson Williams performed his mayhem, including manslaughter, after he left the NBA.
