2. Shawn marion (underrated and does EVERYTHING)
3. Leandro Barbosa (exhilirating just to watch)
4. Gilbert Arenas (as much as i hate the east he is amazing)
5.Tim Duncan (a quiet, humble, SUPER STAR)

Hated
1. Bruce Bowen (a bonafide dirty player)
2. Manu Ginobli (a flop, a whiner, a wuss)
3. Robert Horry (Cheap Shot Bob, he left the suns on bad terms and stays that way now)
4. Tim Duncan ( the BIGGEST whiner EVER, you shouldn't be 7 feet tal and a PANSY)
5. All the pansies and wusses on the Spurs...which would be all of em and their coach

1. Bowen is an aggressive player. Best perimeter defender in the game.
2. Ginobili does flop to get calls but everyone can do that. A wuss? lmao. He attacks with aggression and no fear. You couldn't be far from the truth.
3. Big Shot Bob. Six championships. More than all Suns players combined. One cheap shot should not tarnish a career. But some people can't think logically and only look at present events as opposed to past.
4. Duncan...best power forward in the game. He does overdue it by being wide eyed way too often when being called for a foul but that is not whining. Fact is, he is a quiet superstar who has created who own dynasty....the Duncan Dynasty (1997-present).
5. lmao.


I've met some bitter Suns fans, but you take the cake with your hated list. Oh well...Spurs will keep winning and some, not all, Suns fans will resort to lists or name calling to make themselves feel better.

You do know why Suns can't make it to the NBA Finals, right? Because D'Antoni is a big time whiner and cannot keep his emotions under control. Believe it or not the Suns team sees this and it does affect them.

You posted your opinions, I posted mine. Fair game.

You posted your opinions, I posted mine. Fair game.

1. When you have 8-10 players and 2-3 coaches complaining about how you are making dirty plays...not to mention you are caught on tape multiple times...you're dirty

2. Flopping is playing cheap (and raja bell is a close second to manu in mastering the flop)...but when you resort to flailing yourself like an imbecile (even when it is obvious there is absolutely no foul) just to get your points, you get on this list (and look...he's on 2 other non-Suns fan's lists)

3. Well we booed Horry here already and I would have hated him even if he hadn't mahe that hipcheck. There's just something about him that gets under my skin. Plus he practically won the series through a dirty play so I have no respect for that.

4. I do respect Duncan (and even said he was a quiet superstar on my LOVED list). But I HATE it when he falls down by a minicule bump and when he has that idiotic look on his face after EVRY foul call

5. Ya I'm not really serious...I would hate Manu and Horry anyway but saying the rest of the team just got the point accross I guess


I quote ESPN radio host Jason Smith..."The Suns didn't have the ability to go to the Finals." David Stern decided that. D'Antoni is a fine if not great coach when he has a full squad to work with. He knows how to get fired up...he doesn't lose control. If his players (other than Nash b/c he always has that fire...even moreso when he has been getting laid out all series) would get fired up they would win the Championship no contest....as long as they all are there Game 5 was close even without 2 of the Suns stars (they just lost their legs) and Game 6 was almost predecided b/c the Suns wore themselves out in Game 5 (D'antoni's fault)...I would love to see a fair series.

05-21-2007, 05:36 PM
Yeah thats the only thing i dont like about Duncan. How a 6'0 tall, 190 pound PG can barely touch him and he acts like he just got hit in the face by Chuck Liddell, but when he knocks the crap outta someone he looks around like his whole world just came crashing down and that the Bush administration must have some big conspiracy against him and he's getting cheated.

But he is a great player other than that. And i have to admit, I'd like him on my team.

Love:

1. Tim Duncan- May whine sometimes, but overall a very classy and humble guy, one of the greatest centers in the NBA
2. Steve Nash- One of the most amazing players to watch, overall just awesome
3. Lebron- The guy came out of high school and competes at an unprecedented level, gotta respect that
4. Kevin Garnett- The guy has been doing the same thing for ten years, and that's a good thing. An outstanding player despite being on a crappy team
5. Micheal Redd- Fifth highest scorer this season and people barely take notice. The guy is an outstanding shooting guard and can score as good as anyone.

Don't Love:
1. Stephen Jackson- despite the fact that he plays for my home team and occasionally comes through, the guy doesn't know how to keep his mouth shut and is an emotional burden on the team
2. Ron Artest- as good as he is, he can't keep his mouth shut either, and although you can't judge him solely based on the brawl a few years ago, he is a short fuse


That's really it, the Warriors have not been good since i got into basketball, so i have grown up as a fan of the NBA rather than a fan of a team. I don't really hate a lot of players...

WilyWestbrook0
05-21-2007, 09:59 PM
I almost went with Jackson and Artest on my list too, but they are kind of obvious picks..Marbury though annoys me as much with his game as his attitude. He could be way better than he is, and make his teammates way better, too. Additionally, the way he screwed over KG has always stuck with me.

Duncan is the best PF in the game,....except for Kevin Garnett. That's the real truth. Put him on a team with other All-Stars that can make plays for him, like Parker/Ginobili/etc. for Duncan, KG could be racking up title after title. Who has gotten the MVP and All-Star MVP anyway? [KG]

Love:
1. Charlie Villanueva (you cannot hate this guy at all, no matter what kind of fan you are)
2. Kevin Garnett (best PF in the game)
3. Dwyane Wade (the next MJ)
4. Troy Hudson (the most underrated player in the game. When he starts, he can get an easy 20. Check his stats from when he started this season)
5. Jermaine O'Neal

Hate:
1. Melo
2. Kobe (if he was the MJ comparison, he would pass the ball. Jordan would pass the ball a ton, but not Kobe)
3. Kenyon Martin (just gets on my nerves)
4. Ron Artest (just getting in too much trouble nowadays)
5. Carlos Boozer (gets on my nerves too, esp when he shoots free throws--terrible form! lol)

2. Kobe bryant- he is a Beast
3. Lebron james just an outstanding player
4.Yao ming he had a great year this year but then the injury came so yeah.
5. ben gordon- a clutch player when it comes down to the last shot
6.jermanie oneal. he is underrated but he can play he is a beast.
Most Hated


1.DIRK MVP. as a rocket fan i dont like him that much he doesnt have that much game to carry his team.
2. carlos boozer. he is just Blank Trash.
3. Rasheed wallace never like him BIG MOUTH SHEED.

faves-
grant hill - super classy, absolute warrior.
monta ellis - just what i wish i was on the basketball court
leandro barbosa - super hard worker + love his style
kobe bryant - next to jordan the most amazing basketball player i've ever seen
tim hardaway - aside from that whole gay hating thing, as a player he was just a super fierce competitor + fun player to watch even late in his career

least fave-
lebron james - wasted potential. Barring injury he'll end up being one of the best to ever play, but he could be so much better.. He's got plenty of time though.
ben wallace - nothing personal to him, but i hate the fact that he's a completely media-created defensive "juggernaut". I've never seen a more overrated DPOY in my life.. much less a repeat (and repeat) winner.
bruce bowen - i don't mind the tough defense, but I just hate trying to injure players (and anyone who's played basketball knows it's no accident)
ron artest - duh
bassy telfair - hahahahahhahaha

Ok homie how is Kevin Garnett better then Duncan? He's had a better supporting cast then Duncan in 0304 and couldn't even get to the finals, he never been past the first round besides that even though he's had an allstar on his team (WALLY Z) and Duncan has all-star MVP which really isn't that much of an accomplishment and has double the amount of MVP's Garnett has, I mean come on Duncan has won a championship when Stephen Jackson was the 2nd best player on his team dude. People forget that in 02-03 Parker and Ginobili were no where near the way they are now, and Robinson was on an empty tank, Garnett also is no where near as good as a defensive player then Duncan, man Duncan is better then Garnett by far.

Anderson Varejao- One of the only high energy guys that is a big man
Lebron- Hes the King
Leandro Barbosa-Another get down and dirty type player
Stephen Jackson-Scarred the crap out of Dirk and the rest of the Mavs priceless
Jason Kidd- The Best pure point guard of all-time

Hate
Kobe- He should go repeast Kindergarten and relearn how to share
Yao- Only averages 9 plus rebounds a game. Most of the games he is the tallest player by 5-6 inches, he should average atleast 15 RPG
Dirk-Soft and very unclutch

You are on some kinda EDITED BY STAFF - not appropriate. KG is the most overrated player to ever average 20-10-5. If he was a true great his team would not have missed the playoffs the last two years. He would have willed them there on his own. Here is a example Kobe and the Lakers and Troy Hudson is terrible.

Especially saying Nash is better then Stockton which Stockton had more assists then Nash in his prime which nash's has only lasted 3 yearsI'd also take Isiah over nash.

and earl the pearl boykins? ? its earl the pearl monroe. and no he wouldn't have become an allstar if stayed on the Nuggets, too much of a ballhog.

idk how the hell bowen made all defensive 1st team. he holds and slaps at whoever he's guarding. and the only reason he's in the opposition's head, is because they're wondering how he's gonna hurt them this game. gotta watch out for his leg 'accidentally' going under theirs while coming down. and im an iverson fan. so how does that make me a bitter suns fan because i said nash was better than stocton? when did you ever see stocton score 20 and 11 almost every night EVER. prime or not! i think you just need to hop off the spurs [inappropriate comment deleted]. i just simply stated MY OPINION and obviously offended you . the most boring team in the league. it dont matter how many championships they win. they are the worst team to watch do it!

You dont know how he made all defenseive 1st team? !?!?

He locks down whoever he is guarding and gets in there head- like LeBron James!!! and I remember a few years back he held Kboe to 13 or 14 points. And he has only legit injured one player because of his foot being out which is just his human tendency.
Ahahaha the most boring team in the league but with 3 championships , thats 3 more then the suns. What you have said proves to me you're a bitter suns fan by calling the spurs boring and saying our ships dont matter.

Here We Go Again With The Bitter Suns Fan. Dude, I Dont Even Like The Suns That Much, I Said Nash!! Nash [name-calling deleted] Do You Ever Watch Just Bowen Play D, Every Time His Man Drives To The Hoop He Reaches And Holds The Arms, On Loose Balls It's Even Worse!! And Kobe Is Either Really Off Or Really On! So If Somebody Worse Than Kobe Or Bron Has A Better Game On Bowen, Whatchu Gonna Say To Defend Him Then? Eventually More And More People Will Realize How Dirty His Defense Is!

ahhh...but the real question is.....what has Wally done since he left KG's side? Answer....nothing.....and why is that? b/c KG made him that much better......in summary...it's not as if KG was surrounded by All-Stars and did nothing with it....he was surrounded by mediocre talent, that he made look like All-Star talent, and he took them farther than virtually anyone else would have.

Well...he was so awesome that after he refused the T'wolves $14MM contract offer because he "had a family to feed", not one other team in the league picked him up....even for the veterans minimum. That tells you two things...1. The T'wolves front office was crazy for offering him the deal and 2. he's flat out a lousy player

lmao, nash overratted? He makes that team what it is. Without him they would suck. He does everything that he needs to to help his team win whether it's scoring and hitting clutch shots or making everyone else around him better. And Lebron deserves the hype, he took a lottery team to the NBA Finals with absolutely no one else on that team. The next best player was Daniel Gibson who only scored when lebron was doubled and triple teamed and he was left wide open. Without lebron, the cavs would be taking the first lottery pick in this years draft. But I do agree with hating verajao, all he does is flop and complain.

Wally wouldn't have done anything without garnett even if he wasn't hurt. (unless he went and played with steve nash or jason kidd). He only looked good because KG made him look good. Without a superstar to make him look like an all-star, he's crap.

MDIZZ
06-24-2007, 03:38 AM
He was averaging 20ppg before getting injured this year. Including a 35point performance and a 33 point performance.
And if Garnett could make others sooo good then how come his team sucks right now, shouldnt he be able to make them good"?

L.Washington#29
06-24-2007, 12:09 PM
He makes them better then they would be otherwise. That team is made up of players that shouldn't even still be in the leauge other then garnett, foye and davis. There hasn't been a good playoff or championship team that only has one good player other then LeBron in this years playoffs but he had more help then garnett has. Oh and wally only averaged 15 ppg this year and in his best year he averaged 20.1 ppg and that was the only time that he got to a 20 point average. At best, he is a decent shooter.

Hates kind of a strong word but
Love
1 Kobe (best in game and if your looking to win a ring and the team is telling you lies dont think you wouldn't be upset either although I hope he stays.)
2 Stephen Jackson (underated player and if I wanted one player on my team that I knew would have my teamates back it would be him. Watch replays of him in the playoffs. Everytime he was on the court and a teamate was fouled hard he had a look in his eye like he would protect the teamate and was always neither that teamate after the foul.)
3 Robert Horry (One incident does not make you a dirty player and its not his fault Amare and Diaw got up, plus without him the Lakers dont three peat.)
4 Derek Fisher
5 JKidd (Love how he plays)
Hate
1 Steve Nash (Should not have won the MVP two years ago, he's basically had a three year greatness span and that was it. Before that he was an allstar at best so if he gets into the HOF its sadly going to be beacause of a 3-4 year span,)
2 Lebron James (Is he good? Yes, Is he god the way half the world preclaims him to be? No)
those are my big two i guess its not really lebron but I just don't believe anyone should be hyped the way he is unless your name is Michael Jordan.

Most Favorite:
1) Shaq - Changed 5 NBA rules single handedly, defensive strategies had to adjust just for him, and he's lived up to the hype from way back in '92, plus he's a great guy in person.
2) Magic Johnson - VERSATILE and able to take on anyone, even your MJ's, Waltons, and Birds, plus another great personality (from my hometown too).
3) Bird - A trash talking, 3 pt shooting, Ohio boy that really did well. Plus, if you meet him he's incredibly pleasant (see a trend?)
4) DWade - He's still developing, and hopefully the injuries are over but I can see him outpacing MJ and Kobe statistically. Haven't met him but those who have say he's humble, reserved and kind.
5) Rip Hamilton - He can run circles around anyone and still come back on defense. Underrated, but definitely helps make the franchise of Detroit. Also, incredibly pleasant.

Close calls for fave's: Tony Parker and JKidd.

Least Favorite:

1) Varajao - Flopper. And not just because he did it to the Pistons this year, but because I believe he grows his hair out just so it shows the aftershock of his emptyhead hitting the floor after each pinky touch. Plus he was incredibly rude in person.
2) Duncan - I have respect for the fundamentals (comon, I'm a Pistons fan), but this guy is boring and whines ALL the time. The only image I have of his face is my head is the hurt little boy shaking his head with a bit of a scowl. I don't know how he is in person, but the boring and the whining are enough for me not to enjoy watching him.
3) Kurt Rambis - Another flopping whiny player. He was supposedly a great "role player" but what I remember from when I was a kid was him getting up off the floor as Magic either scores or grabs a defensive ribbie. Also crude around young fans at an official signing.
4) Kobe - Pretty damn good on the court, but off the court he's short with people, he whines, and doesn't appear to be an upstanding person. I can see some of the whining being justified, but there are better ways than using ESPN to express your desire to change jobs (teams) within an organization.
5) Ben Wallace - I used to be a huge fan, but leaving a team for $$ isn't a great thing. Plus he's squandering his defensive skills. He did GREAT for the pistons with blocks, ribs, and just messing with shooting but he isn't doing near the job for the Bulls.

Close call for least fave: King James - Or Magic Ref Call Changer. It's like any game he's in the refs are totally mesmerized. They don't call his fouls, but make sure everyone else who gets a hand near him gets called. Sure, he's great, but great on an uneven playing field shouldn't be rewarded.

Anyhow my Top 5 for each side:

4) LeBron James
5) Gilbert Arenas "HIBACHI"
Dislikes:
1) Stephon Marbury- What a waste of talent
2) Sebastian Telfair- See #1........must be a family thing??
3) Darius Miles- The next who??
4) Rasheed Wallace- good player, but whines WAYYYYY too much for me
5) Reggie Miller- can never like him due to all the torture he put me through when he beat up on the Knicks

idk how the hell bowen made all defensive 1st team. he holds and slaps at whoever he's guarding. and the only reason he's in the opposition's head, is because they're wondering how he's gonna hurt them this game. gotta watch out for his leg 'accidentally' going under theirs while coming down. and im an iverson fan. so how does that make me a bitter suns fan because i said nash was better than stocton? when did you ever see stocton score 20 and 11 almost every night EVER. prime or not! i think you just need to hop off the spurs [inappropriate comment deleted]. i just simply stated MY OPINION and obviously offended you . the most boring team in the league. it dont matter how many championships they win. they are the worst team to watch do it!YEAH!!!!!!!

I do agree that Bowen do use "other things" while he is defending...
BUT if ref does not call it, theres nothing anybody can do. If he can get around those "things", it is safe to call him a good defender. Also, I have not seen anybody who puts better defense on kobe than Bowen past few years. It is an obvious fact that Bowen is a driving force behind the Spurs team and the amazing defense they put on especially in the playoffs.
People can hate him or love him, but he is a good defender and a great role player. (BTW, I dont like the Spurs bc im a lakers fan...but a fact is a fact)

Jealous!!!! You crazy. The only reason that the Spurs are where they are is because you can't even breath on Duncan's neck. If you even look at Duncan you get called for a foul. Don't get me wrong, he is a good player. Bowen is a good defensive player, but he can't stop everyone. He is lucky sometimes....LOL
