Most bad ass player in the league

Who do y'all think is the most bad ass player in the NBA right now?
My vote goes to D-Wade. Dude plays fearless and is like the energizer bunny out there, just never quits... I know he flops but who doesn't? Gotta ton of respect for him.

DWade really doesnt come to

DWade really doesnt come to mind as the MOST bad ass player in the league...

I would say Birdman is pretty bad ass haha...Ron Artest, Larry Sanders, Zach Randolph, Josh Smith, Pekovic, they are bad ass too.

I used to love dwade but his

I used to love dwade but his flopping and complaining have gotten really annoying. I would say russell westbrook because whether or not you think he is good or great or shoots too much, you know he is giving it his all every night and will do what ever it takes to win. He has the championship fight in him and I love it.

David West looks like he could kill a man when he gets mad during games. He gets my vote.

He may not even be in the

He may not even be in the league this year, but Stephen Jackson. See his stories from Highly Questionable or his punches during the malice at the palace. Or just his fearlessness and his he doesn't care attitude while playing.

badass??

dwade badass?? you've got to be kidding me. He flops and complains way too much. If by badass you mean plays hard, then tons of guys will get a vote but in my opinion "bad ass" in the NBA would be a tough guy who does the dirty work and doesn't get the stats or credit he deserves and will also be a force in a brawl or something (not saying fighting is good! just to stick with the term "badass")

DeMarcus Cousins. Also,

DeMarcus Cousins.

Also, honorable mention to Steph Curry for being the most bad ass 6 foot 2ish sharp shooting point guard
since Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf.

I am also thinking about two former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Tony Allen.

Dwade lost my respect when he

Dwade lost my respect when he started to make so many dirty plays constantly, I don't consider dirty plays badass when the other player is helpless. Not just that but kicking someone there is the biggest &$#%#&@! move.

If I had to choose, I'd pick Nate Robinson but I'm bias because he's always been my favorite player, but I love his demeanor on the court and that he isn't afraid of anyone, in fact in the Knicks vs Nuggets Brawl, Nate Took JR Smith down despite a huge size difference. Now, I don't know what went on with CJ and Nate to make Nate drag him to the scorer's table, but that was funny nonetheless. He's not just badass in a fighting way as well, he also just has that demeanor and fearlessness (maybe a little too much with his shot selection) but if you're 5'7 and can tie MJ in any record that he made, then you get labeled a badass in my book.

Being unbias? Well.. That's pretty tough. I love firey Point Guards with a passion for the game, but I'll look past that. I agree with the Stephen Jackson one definitely.

It's kind of sad, Badass players have become more of a rarity compared to the 80s and 90s.

I know he's not in the league

I know he's not in the league anymore but I just had to throw Ben Wallace's name out there. He just has that look of a guy you really don't want to mess with. He shoved Ron Artest and he didn't retaliate, that's a statement lol. I sincerely believe that he can punk any big man in the league today.

All Bad Ass 1st team: Pg -

All Bad Ass 1st team:
Pg - Nate Robinson... probably shorter than his listed height at 5'9 and he still lights teams up and has won the dunk contest 3 times! Thats Bad ass

Sg - Kobe Bryant... He's dropped 81 points, he'll keep shooting even when the shots not falling, hes been in his fair share of fights in his career, and he plays through injuries all the time. Also, he's about to make D Rose look real bad if he can come back from that torn achilles after just one summer.

Sf - Ron Artest... Changes his name to Metta World Peace, and then changes his name again. Not to mention he is mentally insane and one of the toughest players in the league.

Pf - Kevin Garnett... He's regarded as one of the biggest trash talkers in the NBA, and he can still back it up at the ripe age of 37. He scares people which without a doubt makes him Bad ass.

C - Anthony Davis... His unibrow is Bad Ass

Mario Chalmers is pretty bad

Mario Chalmers is pretty bad ass. All he does is hit 3's and win titles.

I have an emerging bad ass small forward in Kawhi Leonard as well as Paul George who has emerging star
written all over him.

Larry Sanders is my bad ass shot blocking pick edging out Serge Ibaka.

My Bad Ass 8 Man Rotation:

My Bad Ass Team:

PG: Steph Curry
SG: Tony Allen
SF: Paul George
PF: Kevin Garnett
C: DeMarcus Cousins

Bench:

PG: Mario Chalmers
SF: Kawhi Leonard
PF/C: Larry Sanders

Even though Chris Childs quick swung and caught him with a two piece, Kobe Bryant is definitely a bad ass.

If by "bad ass" you mean the least likely guy .....

to get pushed around......then it is Pek. Even Pek's tattoo is badass, a medieval warrior with a sword and a bunch of skulls around his feet.

The next guy that roughs up Pek will be the first.

Rasheed Wallace - he retired I know but he's the first who comes to my mind. From the active players I pick DMC.

I would have to go with Kendrick Perkins with KG and MWP right behind him in the bad-ass department.
