Laimbeer had no back pedal, only a forward pedal and it was pressed down 24-7... with suspensions, technicals, fouls, freethrows the opponent would get a reward for Laimbeers actions, so even though Laimbeer got into peoples heads the opponents didnt mind it so super much as they got more of a payback... but it takes a true troll to get into a guys head and not get penalized for it and not rewarding the opponent on the court or of the court in any way.... more like the opposite... again see KG vs Melo

Reggie should maybe have his jersey retired in MSG with a troll face on top of it, i agree with you though, he was a goat flopper, not disagreeing with anything, just saying... he liked to troll especially Knicks.. :)

He was a great player but his name as the Knicks killer gets overplayed, Knicks also got past him plenty of times. I understand trolling is a part of the game, but not being able to back up i.e. Garnett is pretty poor form.

Now, Rodman.... yes yes yes you may have ended the thread right there

Laimbeer because nobody in NBA history got on the player's nerves as much as him. He was the ultimate guy at getting into player's head. Everybody wanted to fight him. Cheap shots a person, whines/argues to the refs that he didn't touch him, and then flops at the other hand, and whines when they didn't call it for him. And he did trash talk. He was a flopper and cheap shots players.

Think about the amount of fights he caused? Jordan, Bird, Parish, Pippen, Barkley, Brad Daugherty, and D.Wilkins. Not to mention all the guys who wanted to smack him one. He got to all in their heads, and they just wanted to fight him. At least give him a hard pick or a good sneaky elbow to make him stop. With all that, he still have the nerve to pretend like nothing happen. He was and probably still is the most hated guy in NBA history. Bird still dislikes him till this day.

With all that said, Rodman is really up there.

But there are a lot of trolls. Reggie Miller is one, lol.

True, i see your point... i just think that opponents were able to get a payback somehow, even with fights (Laimbeer sure fought back), they were able to relieve their feelings with Laimbeer... trolling would be more like saying/doing something, cause the opponent to do something (even throw punches) and just stay back and chuckle watching the opponent suffer all kindsof consequences... lol...

With that said overall, most would agree with Rodman...

True, true.
