Players you (perhaps unfairly) dislike and why

I will freely admit that I am biased.... 1. Marvin Williams has been one of my least favourite players since he was drafted. My beloved Hawks in a fit of stupidity that I will never forgive, drafted Marvin who didn't even start at UNC and played a position the team didn't need instead of taking CP3 who actually wanted to play in Atlanta..... I hated the pick when it happened and with each year of mediocrity from Marvin it increased.

2. I have a friend from Toronto who is convinced A Bragnani is not only a great player but a great passing big man. The fact that stats show Andre not a passer hasn't convinced this friend.

I actually am happy any game where Bragnani has zero assists.

3. My brother is a Wizard fan and as a joke once he claim his dog had a higher BBall I Q than A Blatche..... The more I watched Blatche play the more convinced I became that this dude is clueless about the game.... Then Bill Simmons friend J House echoed these feelings and his fate was sealed.

I hate this slow time of year

I've unfairly disliked Tim

I've unfairly disliked Tim Duncan my whole life. A lot of it stems from a fromer friend of mine who was a Wake Forest fan whop used to tell me that Dean Smith was the worst coach of all time. Never made me happy. I never liked Timmy because he wasn't flashy and his skill, and discipline to play his game and not worry about being flashy always made me dislike him. Everytime he hiot one of those patented bank shots, it drove me crazy. As I got older, I elarned to appreciate his game more and more and more and now I feel as though he's the greatest power froward of all time.

I feel the same way about

I feel the same way about Marvin Williams. I'v always just looked at him and said we could have had CP3 or Williams.

I'v never liked Kevin Garnett. He always seems to get in smaller guys faces and his intensity or whatever you want to call it just rubs me the wrong way.

Pierce is probably the 2nd least favorite of mine. I just don't like how he carries himself and remember when he had to be carried off the court and then was running and jumping two minutes later? What kind of show was that? It is safe to say I am not a fan of the Celtics.

Tyrus Thomas

First off, I really like this post. Secondly, I am right on board with Marvin Williams, Andray Blatche, and Tim Duncan.

A guy I have always dislike was Tyrus Thomas. He is a guy that is super athletic and I believe is really talented but never lived up to his potential. There is also the fact that the Bulls traded LaMarcus Aldridge in the draft, who has become a star in the league, to get Thomas so that is the measuring stick I have always used for him. Then he made the comment that he only wanted to be in the slam dunk contest for the money. (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2756552)

Finally, I really dislike Kendrick Perkins because when the Celtics traded him for Jeff Green; everyone acted like it was a terrible trade that pretty much cost them any chance of winning a title. Perkins is a solid center but I believe that Jeff Green was the better player (we will have to wait and see how he bounces back this year). The Celtics were trying to get more depth at the wing to help match up better against the Heat who don't have a note worthy center.

The list of guys I hate irrationally is long

I always hated Andre Iguodala, even though I never had a really legit reason. I have been a Arizona fan since The Jet, Bibby and Miles Simon. Especially that Arenas, Gardener, Jefferson, Walton, Wright (favorite player), Woods, Edgerson team. I thought Hassan Adams was better and hated Iguodala. I was so wrong about that its crazy. I always felt he could be a beast but lacks the takeover mentality. He has never had it, he could average 24 a game but he would rather play point forward. He is like that guy on your team in a pick up game that instead of going to the hole and being a slasher, he is standing 2 feet in front of you every time the other team scores and demands to play the point, then instantly puts up one hand and a finger as he dribbles up the court as if there are even plays in pick up. He almost has all the talent Lebron has, maybe even a better spot up shooter, but he would always prefer being Iggy than Bron. Bron would go at his neck when they played against each other and he could care less. He actually is in a perfect situation in Denver, so my unreasonable hatred is lessening, but we will see.

I hate all players who have english teacher arms. How much of a a$$hole do you have to be to be in the NBA and not work out. Andre Miller, Antione Walker, Paul Pierce, CJ Miles, Danny Manning, really anyone that not in at least, average physical shape or cardiovascularly fit. Even in contract years these guys and many others where still in the bottom 5% shape in the League. The only reason this is a irrational hatred is because maybe you stay more agile and less rigid and stiff. Many of the more than slightly out of shape people have really long careers with not a lot of injuries. Andre Miller just came off the longest active games streak and he wasnt even in shape in college and never was in his whole NBA career. If half the bigs in the League worked on their bodies as much as there jumper they would be much better players.

Wait, you dislike Matt Bonner?

lol. Here are a few that come to mind:

1. Kevin Durant:

I do not "hate" Kevin Durant. Everything I have heard about him has stated he is actually a really cool, down to earth guy. Guessing if I had met him or if certain situations had been different, I would really like him. He is a fantastic, fantastic basketball player, that is for certain. Still, the double standards with he and LeBron are a tad ridiculous in my eyes. He signs his extension and announces it over twitter, which is the best way to do things? I admit, it is better than the decision, but LeBron signed an extension with Cleveland too before the stupid "Decision" special a few years later!

My ultimate dislike for him goes from circumstance. It was the Oden and Durant debate. I was (and still, I admit maybe psychotically, am) on team Greg Oden. I thought Oden was a no-brainer. While their are plenty of Captain Hindsights who claim what a stupid pick it was, at the time I was not amongst the minority in the least. Greg Oden was that dude, he was a mobile, skilled center who was a potential defensive anchor and just about impossible to keep off the boards. Kevin Durant to me was a good player, but I thought he would have to be a top player in the NBA to justify picking him over Greg. I did not think he would get their, thought he was a skinnier version of Melo, someone just below greatness.

I was wrong. Very wrong. Kevin Durant is fantastic, he is the best scorer in the NBA and if he was not a top 5 player in 2011, he pretty much has cemented himself as the best player in the NBA not named LeBron James. That was indeed worthy of a #1 pick. In my eternal stubborness, I dislike being wrong about this. Finally, after Greg's third microfracture, I was more than willing to admit to this. In hindsight, Durant was absolutely the better pick. But, hindsight is 20/20, at the time things were VERY different. I also believe that since Greg was never healthy, it is kind of unfair to compare the two. Obviously Durant is better and it is doubtful Greg at his best would be the centerpiece that Durant is right now. Just think that people rubbing my nose in it (which I guess is completely justified, Grandma, John, Anthony, Jessica, many other people) need to remember that at the time, NO ONE KNEW GREG WAS GOING TO GET HURT THIS MUCH!

I hate scouts and reports saying otherwise, because where were they before the draft? Literally, no news of continued injury. I hate people saying that it is a "Portland curse" because what would that have meant for Kevin Durant? I do not believe in a curse, it just was unfortunately not meant to be. I do believe Portland's medical staff probably dropped the ball. I do not believe they are as horrible as people say, things happen. Amare Stoudemire had microfracture surgery in Phoenix, anyone remember? Yes, he did not have three of them, but it happened. Man, I guess you can see how this plays out in my mind. Well, I for some reason take this out on not exactly rooting for Kevin Durant in the NBA.

To those saying KD is super loyal to OKC, well, I think he was lucky to be in this situation. He had two years of next to no external pressure of his team doing well. This allowed him to get two top 5 picks, which can do wonders for a team. Luckily enough as well, these two picks were knocked out of the park by Sam Presti (I do not think there were two better players to choose at the spots they were than Russell Westbrook and James Harden. Some may say Kevin Love for Russ, some may have thought Evans for Harden at a time. Those two picks were excellent, if not perfect). Add in Serge Ibaka and some more nice role guys, sounds like a nice way to build a team.

LeBron James did not have that. He had immediate expectations. He came into a better team, but not necessarily a team that was great to build around. LeBron never got top 5 picks, his only lotto choice was the homie Luke Jackson at 10 (who was coming off a spectacular senior year at U of O, but whose back failed him). LeBron's team struck too early on signing help, not to mention missing out on some better options as Cleveland was not an attractive destination. In essence, LeBron was in a much different circumstance than Kevin Durant as far as being in an environment for a potential championship.

I realize I just wrote a bunch of thoughts here that do not necessarily connect. Just are some things I think about every time I hear about how loyal Kevin Durant is and how much better he handles things, etc. He more than likely will not leave Oklahoma City, as I believe they are in a spot to contend for quite a while. Still, if he does not win in the next few years, I could see him at least contemplating a move. I just believe that the commendation he gets for loyalty is at times a shot at guys who were not in his situation with the ability to add those two top 5 picks without consequence of team success in their first couple of seasons. This is not a shot at how hard he works, because I think he has a fantastic work ethic and skill set. But, this is about perhaps unfairly disliking a player. Thought I would give it a go with my feelings towards Kevin Durant.

2. Carmelo Anthony:

Yes, much of this has to do with people being in the LeBron James discussion. I decided from the first time I watched LeBron that he had the potential to be one of the better basketball players of All-Time. I had actually enjoyed Carmelo's first season at Syracuse and remember wanting him to win the championship, not to mention thinking how cool it was that a freshman took as much charge as he did. Still, any time someone seemed to mention LeBron his first couple seasons in the league, you had to bring up Melo (Michael Wilbon was maybe the worst capital offender).

My friend disliked LeBron and really liked Melo, so we had this discussion all of the time through the first few seasons. Well, it is over now. LeBron won. I will say, Melo is a fantastic scorer and I do think some of the flack he has gotten is ridiculous. He is still one of the better players in the NBA. Still, there are some definite weaknesses to his game that have never really been addressed. For such a fantastic scorer, I feel he should be a much higher percentage shooter from the field. His defense has always been at times an after thought. Plus, I absolutely agree he can be a ball stopper. Nonetheless, is my dislike for Melo totally justified? Probably not, but I will say he is not my favorite player and I am not exactly going crazy for him to turn it around in New York. Think it might be more fun if he did, though.

3. Joakim Noah:

Again, this guy has been a much better player than I expected. I knew he was good and was even surprised he went as low as he did in the draft. Was actually always surprised that Seattle at the time went with Jeff Green at 5 (a guy I felt played the exact same position as Kevin Durant. Not to mention was not a PF, nor was I big fan of the "Kevin Durant is a 2" experiment) over a big man like Noah to pair with Kevin Durant in 2007. My dislike of Noah stems from a few things that started before he reached the NBA.

Oregon played Florida in the 2007 NCAA tournament. I did not expect to beat them. I was happy we even got as far as we did, not to mention I feel we gave Florida one of the better games of the tournament. Still, Noah's actions on the court did not impress me or my friends and family. To this day, he still probably &$#%#&@! off some Oregon fans. The guy plays hard, plays with a lot of emotion and is not a bad player. He has been part of the Bulls success, though I feel his part is somewhat overvalued. Last summer, there were people here calling him maybe the second or third best center in the league, which I thought was CRAZY! I will tell you why.

Have pointed this out before, but I think Bulls fans missed when they chose a scape goat for the 2010-11 play-offs. They chose Carlos Boozer. He played badly, but for the Heat series, which was after all the most important series, it was Noah by a mile. He was awful on both ends of the court. His stats may look alright at first, 7.8 ppg/9.8 rpg/3.4 apg. The Thunder wish Kendrick Perkins could do that. Still, Noah shot 31.7% FG/50% FT. Plus, he had the job of guarding Chris Bosh. Not ideal, but Noah is SUCH a great defender. Bosh lit him up like the 4th of July. 23.2 ppg on 60% FG. Even had enough energy to shoot 91.4% from the line. Huge let down series for Noah.

Now, can he not get better? Of course he can. He is not at all a bad center, just not necessarily as great as people made him out to be after Chicago finished with the best record in the league in 2010-11. For those who don't know, Noah missed 34 games that season. The Bulls record was actually slightly better in those 34 games (26-8>36-12 % wise). This does not necessarily mean Joakim is not valuable or the best center the Bulls have. He is one of the better centers in the league, but he has not necessarily shown himself to be an All-Star. I have been impressed with Joakim, but when he was getting ranked by people on this site as a top 5 center, kind of made my head spin. He may not be one of my favorites, just know that I do think he is a good player. Just has done very little to merit being one of the best centers in the league as of yet. He had a solid three games against Philly in the play-offs, but I hardly see that as putting him over some better centers out there.

  • Conclusion of all of this nonsense I have just written

So, these are three guys I do not necessarily like very much. I am sure there are many more. Is my dislike justifiable on all of them? Probably not. In times of fandom, we sometimes do not need much justification for our dislike. We have a way we see things or want to see things, if a person stands in our way, we may not appreciate it, lol :). I still can see the value in players I dislike and at times I grow to respect these players to the point of liking them, even a little. Just wanted to give some examples of a few players I may not be as crazy about as many of the posters on this site. I could have easily added Dwight Howard, but that would have been too easy. These three just kind of stood out to me.

I used to love Durant (as evidenced by multiple times saying I would've taken him over Oden), but over the past two years I've cooled on him dramatically because, like you said, the double standard used for him against LeBron is ridiculous.

Around this time last year,

Around this time last year, Maurice Evans was sitting in a New York conference room and attempting to negotiate with the NBA’s owners. It seemed like the lockout would never end. Regular season games were being canceled and meetings weren’t yielding progress.

Manu Ginobli

My hate for Manu stems from being a diehard Pistons fan, and in Detroits hayday 6,7,8 years ago, the Spurs were just always that really good annoying team that Detroit or pretty much anyone in the league couldn't beat. Like they all made plays that made your team look stupid, and Manu seemed especially to do it the most. Idk if it was his greasy hair flopping around or his knack for making threes at the worst possible time, or maybe when he'd shock everyone and drive with the eurostep and jam out of nowhere. Whatever it was exactly ever since that time I have had a hard time watching the Spurs, particulary Manu, play basketball.

Back in the day I couldn't

Back in the day I couldn't stand Karl Malone, John Stockton, or Charles Barkley. I had no good reason to dislike Malone or Stockton...Now Charles Barkely was quite a jerk so a guess there was at least some reason to dislike him.

Andrew Bynum

He's a very good center, but I just feel he could be great if his head was in the right place. Plus, he just makes stupid comments sometimes. Maybe Philly will give him the fresh start he needs.

(we won't cover the players I

(we won't cover the players I "fairly" dislike. e.g. Vince Carter, Dwight Howard.)

1) Derek Fisher. Doesn't seem to do anything but flop and hit 3s. But he does it in extremely clutch moments. As someone who has cheered against the Lakers for a long time, it's inevitable that I hate Derek Fisher, but also maintain the highest level of respect for him.

2) Pau Gasol. Great player. I just hate his face. Can we stop the HD close-ups? Thanks. (exceptions can be made for Blake Griffin over the back facials)

3) Hedo Turkoglu. Signed a massive contract with Toronto, my home city, which I knew was a big mistake. So I was pissed off. He's not that bad a player, just was extremely overrated. Too late though, I hate him. Also, I hate his face.

4) Andrea Bargnani. It is SO frustrating to watch him get confused on defense. I leave out rebounding because I'm pretty sure he doesn't know what rebounding is. Sometimes the ball just bounces in his direction and so he catches it.

Kevin Durant, I just don't

Kevin Durant, I just don't understand the freedome he gets in his game. He isn't a very good defender, or he doesn't try to be, not much of a passer, and he's finally a better "NBA" rebounder. He pretty much plays the same exact game as Carmelo Anthony, yet Carmelo is always given flack and Kevin Durant is not. I think it's an image thing. Carmelo with the visible tattoos and Boisterous attitude.

Career stats, Kevin Durant 26.3 points, 2.8 assists, 6.6 rebounds, 1 block, and 1.2 steals vs. Carmelo Anthony's 24.7 points, 3.1 assists, 6.3 rebounds, 0.5 blocks, and 1.1 steals. At this time neither one of them have a championship. So they the same strengths and weakness' pretty much, yet one is always spoken ill of and the other is sometimes called the best player in the league.(he'll never overtake Lebron, while Lebron is in his prime.) Kevin Durant is listed as the 2nd best player in the league and Carmelo is listed outside of the top team by most analysts. Number's don't lie. Carmelo is considered a black hole by analyst when speaking of his offense, but he averages more assists than KD.

Probably wouldn't dislike him if Carmelo was given his due or Kevin Durant was brought down to the appopriate level.

I like your points but...

You forgot to compare shooting percentages and shot selection.

e.g Melo shooting barely 42% in the playoffs last year where Durant shot 51%, with a much bigger sample size.

And Durant is clearly a more willing defender without even having to look at any numbers.

For their careers, regular

For their careers, regular season, Kevin Durant is at 47% and Melo is at 46% both of those figure are rounded.

Yes

But we all know the playoffs is where it matters.

Further more Durant's percentages have generally been on the incline while Melo's have stayed steady around that 45% in the regular season AND have declined massively in the playoffs particularly since he 'forced' his way to The Big Apple. 38% & 42% is not acceptable for a guy who claims he cannot be guarded.

These along are some of the reasons, along with defense why people have reason to give more flack to Melo.

Kevin Durant doesn't play

Kevin Durant doesn't play defense, and the last 2 playoffs since Carmelo has gotten to the knicks, he's been constantly doubled and triple teamed playing by himself. Amare gets injured 2 years in a row in the playoffs and Chauncey Billups got injured year one, and Jeremy Lin got injured year 2. Kevin Durant never gets doubled. "Yeah we're going to leave Westbrook or Harden open." The Thunder are a team that has 3 guys that can go for 40 and who have gone for 40.

I don't dislike any

I don't dislike any players..BUT I HATE PAUL PIERCE!!!

This Guy is a clutch player and 1 of the 5 best small forwards in the nba...But his unsportsman like attitude when the Celtics are winning Is Juvenile ..And when they'll losing he pretends to be injured!!!! Leaving the floor in a wheelchair,then seconds later he's sprinting on the court like Carl Lewis..And smiling if Boston is behind by only 4 or 6 points...Thinking he can now play Super-Hero...

I can think of only players

I can think of only players off the top of my head that I truely hate. Kevin Garnett and B.J. F@cking Armstrong.

I hate KG because I see him as a pansy. He's a fake tough guy who picks on players significantly smaller than him. KG will never try to pull any of that crap with a player closer to his size.

B.J. F@cking Armstrong. I've hated this guy for years. I just remember watching him as a kid and not liking him. It was hate at first sight. I always thought he was way overrated and he should've never made an all-star team. He was a bit of a sissy too. I especially hated him when he played for my home town Warriors. I remember going to a game back in 96. We were playing Toronto that night. I booed and heckled him every time he touched the ball. It was a very interesting night because earlier in the day at school I had dropped some acid a friend gave to me for free and somehow between noon and tip-off I had gotten free tickets to the game. I don't remember who won the game but I do remember shooting on the floor after the game though. Good times.

A few players I dislike for

A few players I dislike for some reason or another; Beasley, Charley V, Iverson, Favors, Kobe, Melo, Kenyon Martin, Jr. Smith, Sasha V, and starting to dislike Blake Griffin.

Back in the day I hated Shaq and Rick Fox with a passion.

Being a UNC fan I've always

Being a UNC fan I've always had a hate towards Duke players..JJ Redick (1 dimensional and more suited for the Euro style) and Carlos Boozer which has performed over his expectations from being a former 2nd rd pick..he just p*sses me off with his awful shooting mechanics and screaming sh*t or f*ck every other play.

I have grown to not like Melo

I'm really not a fan of Carmelo Anthony. I watch him play and he's a hot dog so much to the point he drags his team down when it's against teams with equal talent. He goes nowhere in the playoffs. Sure he played great in the Olympics (that just pissed me off more) but he was supposed to... he can play- I just don't like him. Imo he's a very good player and people rate him as a superstar- I guess that's what annoys me about him everytime I watch him.

KG

I used to like Kevin Garnett, but his personality just makes me angry. I just hate how he is always trash talking and banging his head on the basket. He tries to intimidate Tim Duncan, but Timmy dominates him on the floor.

Andrea Bargnani

1) I'm sure he's a decent fellow. He's pretty good offensively, but I can never get it passed me that we took him over Aldridge and Rudy Gay. Add to the fact he's a big man who's quite allergic to rebounds and you have a frustrated Raptors fan.

2) KG, on one hand you have a passionate NBA player. On the other hand, you have someone who could pass for being legally crazy. The Tim Duncan/KG mother's day story and the Charlie Villanueva incident just make me dislike him even more...

Nobody questions his intensity and desire to win it's amazing, but no one likes his poo attitude and he is a fake tough guy that gets in lil guys faces, but runs when someone his size steps up.

There are 2 players that I

There are 2 players that I hate with a passion and will NEVER get over it!

1) Carlos Boozer- What he did to the Cavs was despicable, I know the Cavs management screwed this up also, but Boozer gave them his word and when he lied and jumped to the Jazz, I have been rooting against him ever since.

2) Maun Ginobili- He justs gets on my nerves with the flopping and such, I also never forgave him for the 07 Finals, ruining it for Bron.

Hate is a strong word, but

Hate is a strong word, but here is the list of players I dislike:

Michael Beasley - I just can't stand him. I don't think he'll ever be a winning player. He doesn't play team basketball at all. He's just another player out their trying to do his favorite star's impression (Carmelo Anthony). Other than shoot the ball, he does nothing to help a team.

OJ Mayo - He clearly didn't live up to his high school hype and is still crazy to me the fact people are still overrating him. He's very similar to Beasley in my opinion. A tweener who just knows how to shoot. His first step is slow. His arms are short. He's a tweener who just shoots the ball. No point guard skills. I'm just not a big fan. I think he'll do better in Dallas, but I still just don't like him.

LeBron James - He's improved some this past season and looked to be more humble, but I still just don't like him. Too many years of showboating, arrogance, talking about himself in the third person and self-centered attitude just rubbed me the wrong way. I'm happy that he got his ring and showed a more complete game during the playoffs, but I just still don't really like him. I hate the fact it took a 6' 8" 250 lbs freak of nature 8 years to start playing in the damn post.

Dwyane Wade - I used to really like D. Wade, but something changed. I got tired of his whining, cherry picking and flopping. As a basketball player, I'm just really sick of him.

Deron Williams - It's not his game. It's his attitude. I think he has questionable leadership skills and just is a d*ck head. I think he's been a little humbled since being in New Jersey though. Still just don't really like him.

Brandon Jennings - I just don't like him. I think he's overrated. He's a poor man's Allen Iverson. He scored 55 points and the expectations just went too high.

Jordan Crawford - I haven't liked him ever since this upcoming IU freshman showcase at Noblesville High School here in Indiana. I hate the fact he thinks he's a superstar and doesn't seem to know his limits as a player.

Corey Brewer - I was dating this girl who used to manage the Alabama Men's Team and she happened to be in an elevator with Brewer during the SEC tournament and he was real disrespectful towards her. And the things he said were just like real idiot like. He seems to be missing a screw or two.

Andre Miller - I can't stand the fact he's always out of shape. Not only that, he's a terrible shooter. I just don't really like his game.

You could make an All-Star

You could make an All-Star team with IndianaBasketball's list haha...

Brian Scalabrine - Must I explain this one?

Andray Blatche - Never in shape, bad attitude, under-achiever, locker room cancer.

Paul Pierce - Honestly I just hate the way he looks and acts. His game is not exciting to me and he whines too much. Cant stand his cocky attitude.

Hedo Turkoglu - What does he really do to help a team? He got a huge contract and just got fat.

On Wednesday night, Drummond

On Wednesday night, Drummond got his first game action, albeit the preseason, and his putback with 35 seconds remaining lifted the Pistons to a 101-99 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

I've never really understood

I've never really understood how a professional basketball player could be fat. It's your job, and a great one at that, to be a good basketball player and part of that is being in shape. I guess BScal has too many book and movie deals going that keep him off the treadmill.

He's not a player,but David

He's not a player,but David Stern is turning off away of people that use to respect him...I have to give it to him for taking the nba to a level it never reached under any other Commish..But some of his latest actions over the past few years are uncalled for...

Pacers forward Danny Granger

Pacers forward Danny Granger certainly hasn’t forgotten it, though, and it’s a tough loss he says the team will take with them into the new season.

1) Rajon Rondo - perhaps

1) Rajon Rondo - perhaps unfairly, but I dislike him because I think that he thinks that he is better than he really is. No offense whatsoever, only 11 PPG. He does get 11 assists, which is probably top 3-5 in the league (I'm not sure) but guys like Rose put up 8-10 assists while scoring 22-25 ppg. He impacts the game in many ways and is probably a top 5 pg in the NBA. I saw a quote from Rondo a month or two ago where he said "I'm the NBA's best point guard." Maybe that's just his competitive confidence, but to me it seems like arrogance and overconfidence.

2) Kwame Brown - How could a guy with such potential talent waste it away with dumba$$ decisions when millions of other people in his position would take advantage of it? "If you draft me, you won't regret it." lol nuff said.

3) Brandon Jennings - I'm a Bucks fan, and I like and dislike Jennings at the same time. I love his game but hate his personality. He can take over games and be a great team player and then be gettting in opponents faces like he's the $hit and being a jerk. Seems like a d-bag everytime I see him but I have no way of knowing if he is. Rubs me the wrong way.

4) Joakim Noah - Seems like a jerk and he's really ugly.

5) Dion Waiters - Hasn't even played an NBA game yet but to me looks like he is going to waste his opportunity and be a bust. Came into Cav's camp overweight and was an immature brat his time at Cuse. Can tell from his in-draft interview that he thinks he's the $hit.

6) D12 -The way he betrayed and held Orlando hostage was sad.

7) Anderson Varejao - Another guy who is ugly and who I always dont want to succeed for some reason.

8) Manu Ginobli - Annoying flops in real life and a scrappy player who every time I play NBA 2K can't miss a fricken shot and f's up my team's chances every time I play the Spurs. I also dislike Tony Parker.

9) Adam Morrison - Looks like Jesus's unemployed stoner brother.

10) Scalabrine - Nothing needs to be said.
