Michael Jordan

I am not saying he is the best, however he has to be up there. He was definitely a talker, and he walked the walk. There are so many stories about Jordan and his mouth - that we could probably collaborate a book. I am obviously biased, as I feel Jordan is one of the most influential athletes of all time.

I will get negged for this,

I will get negged for this, but it is known that KG is a fake tough guy. He never goes after the elite players, he goes after guards and young players. He barks loud, but he won't ever fight. I

Bird or the Glove, then Rodman, MJ... but Magics smile must have pissed a lot of players off.

I agree with all the above. I

I agree with all the above. I never got to watch all of those players in the 90s because I was super young so I can't really rank them, but what about Reggie Miller? I've never seen Michael Jordan lose his crap like he did when Reggie got in his head.

KG is a huge one, but he would never back it up. If he actually started a fight he would be the type to throw a punch and run. I have no respect for a guy like that. If you're gonna trash talk, at least be man enough to back it up like Rodman or Payton would

Get over it. If you see the footage he is outside with Mello by the bus with people between them. KG is not playing. Like Shaq said he is without a doubt a tough guy. Get over it.

Larry Bird talked so much

Larry Bird talked so much sh*t to Dr. J while abusing him, that Dr. J started throwing punches.

I think Reggie Miller was a great trash talker too. He got up under Michael Jordan's skin, who's one of the greatest trash talkers of all-time.

I always thought his defense

I always thought his defense was underrated, kinda getting lost in the mix. I think you are meaning straight up man D? No he couldn't straight up lock a man down, thats only one aspect of defense (a key aspect) but he other aspects of defense he really excelled at: he had an uncanny ability to read a play before it happened (similar to his passing) read passing lanes with the best ever (which started the fastbreak) he tipped the ball, while not blocking asmany shots as one would expect he played excellent help D and boxedout and rebounded to boot. He's defense on ball wasn't great but everthing else about his D was. There's more to defense then being able to lock up the ballhandler my friend

NBA players always site GP and Reggie Miller

KG is great and hopefully will influence some of the younger players nowadays. AAU and prep all star teams plus the success of the Heat have eroded court hatesmenship.
Kobe is good to, remember him goating Lebron to shoot the last second shot in the all star game and this year he bet Gerald Wallace 5000 dollars at the free throw line. He even doesn't discriminate in favor of his own team or himself, Shaq he called lazy, Gasol and Bynum soft, his team old and said a couple days ago that they better than the Clipper's at only interviews.

That John Starks to Reggie Miller headbutt was iconic.

Personally I like guys that aren't even that good that talk trash, I would like to know who those guys are in the League.

Here's some young guys that are getting it going.

I have heard and noticed that Jeff Teague feels very highly of himself and not too much of everybody else. Looking forward to Cousins ascent in the trash talking arena, he went at Duncan which is bold. He then tuck it to Sean Elliot for putting his two cents in. Cousins went at Blake Griffin a lot last year and I swear he was being ridiculously rough in those Select Team practices they aired, targeting Blake often. Dion Waiters likes to talk also and so did Austin Rivers. Kyrie called out Kobe in the Olympics, I'm looking forward to him to get going also.

I know Evan Turner has gotten

I know Evan Turner has gotten in atleast one scuffle a year because of his trash talk. I remenber Kobe saying when Turner was a rookie he never heard a rookie talk as much trash as Turner, especially considering Turner didn't have mind boggling production at the time.

He's already bated Bosh,

He's already bated Bosh, Durant, and Boozer into an in game scuffle so he must be pretty effective. He does have a very strange voice, but he's also very witty and arrogant.

KG and Joakim Noah are at the

KG and Joakim Noah are at the top of my list. And I can't count how many times Zaza Pachulia has that "Someone hold me back so I look tough!" look, not sure if he talks trash but it always seems like he's about to get into these scuffles(especially with KG) and then he always dissapears. And I know we all remember the infamous Sasha Vujacic and Goran Dragic incident in the Conference finals where he said something to Dragic, and then Dragic walk towards him, Vujacic elbowed him and Dragic flopped to the floor, and then Dragic went off and Phoenix almost came back but fell short. I loved Kobe's post game interview when asked about Vujacic, he said, "I'm gonna kill him" and then later at the press conference when asked what he did to him, he said, "He's still breathing." I probably explained it terribly but I thought that was hillarious.
