Default NBA Players remembered for the wrong reasons

Most NBA players are known for the things they did well- Jordan and Russell were known as great winners, Shaq as a dominant player and awesome personality.

Then, there are those that will be remembered for something they'd wish they could forget.

I'll start with an example- Alton Lister.

Decent player, solid blocker, nice defense- but he is remembered by many as being on the wrong side of the Lister Blister (when Shawn Kemp threw down that awesome dunk on him).

I'll bite.

Shawn Bradley.

Who here remembers him being a 7+ ft, Caucasian Center? I don't.

I remember him being the dude who got this and this done to him.

Allen Iverson

The greatest chucker the game has ever seen. He single handedly destroyed an organization and was quite possibly the most overrated player to ever step foot on the hardwood.

He's remembered for his flashy plays/thug persona

you shut your filthy mouth

one of the greatest small men the league has seen and a warrior to boot

getting to the finals is quite a feat, regardless if you lost or if it was in the east, not everyone is Jordan and no one is ranking him in the top 20

latrell sprewell : Remembered for the "choking accident" and the feeding of his family and not for the great player he was

Stephon Marbury : He was a great PG in his career, but people always think of his webcam era

For people who do not follow the league, Dennis Rodman obviously. People on the outside looking in, they think he is the guy who kicked the camera man, kicked the Nets Gatorade bucket, dressed up like a woman in a wedding gown, etc. They don't realize he was one of the best defenders and rebounders ever. I've been watching regularly and to the point I understand for about 20 years now. I'll throw in Dwight, KG, Duncan, Camby, Hakeem, anyone. There has not been a better defender or rebounder.
