I have to say Boris Diaw... for you to understand how poor work ethic he has think about this... can you believe that Boris just before the NBA was a very good Point-Guard, yep at 6'8-6'9 & 200 lbs, amazing ballhandling & vision, quickness and so on.... and was drafted as a PG/SG into the NBA.... he was placed at SF/SG to ease him in to that potential PG transition in the NBA, well he eased in alright the opposite way with also added 40 extra lbs of fat & laziness :P

His situation in PHX is what got him fat. He got depressed and ate. Him and Stoudemire didn't fit together so Diaw was the odd man out.

He never lost the weight he gained though.

I love the idea of bad work ethic in the NBA. Thats like asking what pornstar have the least sex without cameras.

Most of us does not know how much they practice. Some media outlets will tell you this and that, but it never prove anything. I also find it so ironic that people put McGrady and Carter on their top list. There is a ton of guards with their athletic ability that never came close to them in talents. How can Carter and McGrady shoot like that without practice? Has there ever been a natural good shooter?

You guys also need to consider that the star players get the most attention on their practicing.


This thread proves only one thing, we have no clue what the players are doing when we dont see them on tv. Just like pornstars, but my guess is that the pornstars are sucking the D and Haslem is shooting baseline jumpers.

Ron Artest and Arenas are the first to come to mind. I mean, drinking on the job or bringing a gun to the workplace? Totally unprofessional.

I'm with you here. I do believe there's players who work very hard to reach the NBA then sort of tap out once they become multi-millionaires but I do not have a way of surely telling who those players are. I, too, have always been interested in the Carter/McGrady work ethic accusations. One does not simply walk into being one of the best shooters and players in the entire world. To excel in the NBA at an all-star level, there must be something worthwhile behind a player's willingness to put forth work and effort.

my vote goes to eddy curry, cousins, odom, diaw
The dude didn't practice much so no, he wasn't a hard worker. He played hard but didn't practice hard. Two very different things. If he were a hard worker, he wouldn't be looking for a job. His lack of work caught up to him and when his athleticsm and age caught up to him he was useless.

For me...it has to be bigs who don't rebound and defend in terms of effort and basic skills.
