Default Re: Players you like, mixed feelings, and hate

I'm just gonna list the ones I don't like, as for the others, well, I either like them or don't care at all.
  • Lebron: I can't stand that "Chosen one" tatoo
  • Isiah Thomas: "if Larry Bird had been black, he'd be just another good player":rollingeyes:
  • Kenyon Martin: Thug wannabe, should give Kidd half his salary
  • Vince Carter: show some heart!!!

I used to hate Bryant, but not much recently, I've come to respect his game (more or less).

Current Players only

Like:

Kobe Bryant (off-court issues aside, Kobe has "It"...that competitive spirit to win no matter what...very similar to that feller MJ :) )

LeBron James (my respect for him has gone down a bit because he seems to be getting more and more full of himself)

Dwayne Wade (humble Christian kid who is a heckuva player)

Shaq (Shaq is always good for an interview )

'Zo (dude almost dies of a kidney failure and comes back and still plays dominant defense at what...35 or something like that? Crazy.)

Mixed:

Allen Iverson (AI got mad game, but he is a thug and a punk that feels the world owes him everything. Practice? Yes AI, practice. You get paid a bazillion dollars. Show up and shoot ball with your teammates. It's pretty simple, actually.)

Dirk Nowitzki (Dirk is a very good player, but he crumples faster than tissue paper when it's crunch time)

Steve Nash (Yeah, he's a great PG, but he has yet to lead a team to the Finals)

Dislike:

Carmelo Anthony (thug, chucker and looks like a girl)

Stevie Franchise (definition of overpaid bum)

Grant Hill (played in 25% of the games he was with the Magic...got paid like half a mil a game )

Starbury (loud mouthed thug who has the audacity to say he's better than Kidd? Bu bu bu Zach Randolph! : )

Antoine Walker (everytime this guy gets in the game, I groan because I know he's gonna chuck garbage up there)

Tracy McGrady (whiny baby who was whining about how "tough" his life is while getting paid millions to shoot a ball through a hoop...get real, everybody has to deal with hard times and most don't get paid millions to play a kid's game. He still hasn't won anything of note despite his accolades)

Yao Ming (dude is like 7'6", 350, and he plays like a little girl. He should average 25 ppg/15 rpg/5 bpg easy, but he's soft. He got blocked by NATE ROBINSON. )

Regardless if it was or not, all he has to do is jump like 3 inches in the air to dunk it home. But he is too lazy. Nate Robinson, or most people, shouldn't even get anywhere close to blocking Yao Ming if he actually tried. Good thing for the rest of the NBA; Yao Ming is very soft and lazy. Barkley was right.

You don't get 25 and 9 in the NBA by being soft and lazy. Doesn't work that way dude. Besides, Nate blocked him when he was preparing to do a jumpshot, that firey little pest just anticipated it well and had the courage to do it.

He gets 25/9 a game because he is 7'6" 310. People just accept those numbers and saying he is good judging by 6'10" to 7' guys' standards. Yao Ming is half a foot taller than the majority of bigs in the league. He should be doing much better. But, people are always willing to excuse mediocrity it appears.

And I love how people keep trying to protect Yao Ming when he got stuffed by a guy almost TWO FEET shorter than him. That is just

Ben Wallace, at 6'9", pulled down almost 11 boards a game last season. He is NINE INCHES shorter than Yao Ming. He is giving up SEVENTY pounds to Yao Ming. In a game that is about height, banging with the big boys down low, a guy who is at a disadvantage in every way to Yao Ming is outhustling him. Oh, and Ben is also SIX years older than Yao Ming, so there is more wear and tear on his tires.

Yao Ming is lazy and soft. Sorry Rockets fans, make all the excuses you want, but T-Mac and Yao will never get you anywhere close to a ring.

Yao should give half of his salary to Tim Duncan so TD can teach him how a REAL big plays down low.

Aside from Shaq just being a freak of nature, the majority of 7+ footers are just slow. Being that tall with that much mass doesn't allow for you to be as quick as someone a foot smaller. You do realize in your comment, you basically just pointed out that the smaller (quicker) Nate Robinson, who has unbelievable hops for his size, got up on Yao for a block. Speed and timing had everything to do with that. Not because Yao is lazy.

Of all the people you hate, you hate VC the most. :

That's funny, but not in a bad way. Why do you hate VC more than other guys who have attitude problems, criminal records, etc? Just can't stand a quitter?

And why all the hate for Smush Parker? I didn't even think Smush was worth even noticing...
