    Now that the holiday season is over, there really is no need to pretend to be nice all of the time. Is there a current or former NBA player that really gets on your nerves?

    Here are my top three:

    1. Karl Malone
    2. Kevin Garnett
    3. LeBron James

    I really dislike these people.

    Guys I have a hard time not rooting against when I'm watching a game:
    - Wade/Lebron
    - Kobe
    - KG
    - Melo
    - Griffin

    Pretty cool with everybody else. Westbrook isn't my favorite, but their team is fun to watch that he is covered.

    With a team like the Heat, I don't like their personalities, and even though they are good, I don't find them enjoyable to watch. Too much superstar bball with ref dependence for my tastes.

    Chris Paul, Durant, Chandler, D Rose, and many others are all perfectly enjoyable to watch and root for when I tune into a random non Pistons game. I just don't feel like they are a-holes, they are really talented, and they seem to be members of their teams.

    1. Wade (Just a Grade A dick.)
    2. Rodney Stuckey (No explanation needed.)

    I feel like I could have given 15 guys easily a few seasons ago. Is it harder to hate the players (opposing players anyway) when the Pistons have been so bad?

    I had to think quite a while before coming up with a non-Piston.

    Beasley.

    TOP 3
    Chaz - I cannot stand the sight of him and he smells bad.
    Lebron - the aura of entitlement is disgusting
    Blake Griffin - I cannot stand the post-dunk stare-downs followed by the complete wussy play on the defensive end. He's got balls the color of steel, but they're actually two my little ponies duct taped together.

    Generally dislike:
    Wade, JR Smith, Melo, Iverson, Vince Carter (the later years), Sideshow Bob, Matt Barnes, Captain Jack, Coach Tablecloth

    The only player I really dislike is Dwyane Wade. I do think the pg in NJ is overrated.

    I can think of no mid to late 80's Celtics that arn't on the list.... They also had the ugliest team in the history of any sport IMO. :P

    Wade for all his antics yet still the media's darling.....

    Thats about the end of the list for me....

    I don't like James, but everything he has done has been for my entertainment save when he went for 26? straight in the playoffs against us, and for that.... I blame the Pistons not him.

    [I think I remember starting a thread like this a couple years ago.]

    Tied for 1st (active guys):
    - Carmelo Anthony (overrated, cowardly, malcontent)
    - LeBron James (I still choose to accept the LBJ's Mom/Delonte West story as FACT!)
    - Elaine Wade (needed to be carted off the floor in a wheelchair for a shoulder injury? ...really?)
    - J.R. Smith (I was in line behind him at Moe's Bagles in Denver once and he was a butt-wipe to the girl behind the counter. He played the "don't you know who I am?" card and the cute little goth chick blankly stared back at him and told him "Dude, I don't watch football.")
    - Mike Beasley (watch the documentary film "Gunnin for that #1 Spot")

    I agree. Too bad BDL didn't record this with his iPhone.

    I'm in agreement with almost everyone on that list.
    I actually like MWP ever since he's been seeing a shrink. He rarely takes a play off and I like the fact that he doesn't give boring predictable answers when he's interviewed.

    I was surprised to see Tony Parker on the list, but it apparently has more to due with him sleeping with the wife of a former teammate.

    I don't watch a lot of Clippers basketball, but in the recent game I did watch, I was surprised to see how annoying Blake Griffin can be. He is constantly talking trash, stirring up trouble, and making borderline dirty plays.
