Who gets on your nerves? For whatever reason, these players just annoy you on the floor. They don't have to suck, they don't have to be bad citizens. But for some reason, they just bother you. Mine:

(5) Kevin Martin - Shoots like a girl, hits the ground on every drive, and does the Reggie Miller kick on his jump shot. A motif with all my least favorite players is a tendency to flop and KMart is one of the worst offenders.

(4) Derek Fisher - Literally robbed the Warriors of a victory when he curled his head and hit the ground on a play where replay showed Monta Ellis was not in any physical contact with him. The seeming innovator of the slide-under, bowling ball flop.

(3) Devin Harris - The reigning and defender flopper king; Harris falls down when someone breathes on him. I particularly dislike that Harris always has this tough guy scowl on his face like he's hot sh*t, all the while playing the game like a sissy punk working the officials.

(2) Pau Gasol - Watch any Pau Gasol highlight and you'll see his mouth hanging open like a porn queen. Why? Because he yelps like a stuck pig anytime there's ANY incidental contact inside. I have zero patience for 7-foot cupcakes; Gasol is a power forward who whines when things get physical. You almost have to watch Lakers games on mute to stop from throwing the remote through the screen. Not to mention the dude flopped over and pee'd himself like a scared dog after LA traded him. Your "feelings are hurt", eh nancy? Grow a pair and figure out that this game is a business. He wasn't nearly as distraught when the Grizzlies gave him away.

(1) Dirk Nowitski - My single least favorite player in the league for the simple fact that Dirk is so good, he doesn't NEED to flop... But he does anyway. Nowitski falls down when SG's on switch rotations tap his elbow on a fadeaway. He makes like players 60 pounds lighter are throwing him around. And he mugs the officials like Kobe when they don't permit him his 17th free throw attempt of the night. My biggest beef with Dirk was how he led his team to a title using that strategy. In essence, the Mavericks legitimized that you can win a title by manipulating officials and screaming during contact. Dirk is so good and so big, he could shoot 3's (or his automatic fadeaway) OVER 90% of his defenders. He's sinister when he shouldn't have to be. He's like a WWF bad guy.

Nice thread, never thought that someone would made something like that, and I do have quite some number of those players. The not so interesting part is that most of them are already on your list, lol. I guess it's just so obvious how some players are sissies. Though, on my list probably Martin would be the number one...man, how I hate his game.

Give me some time to think about it while I watch games, so I can add someone new to my list, I might be forgetting someone who annoys me more than Martin.

Oh yeah, no doubt. My top 10 centers thing seemed like it scared people off, so i kept this one to 5, but... I could easily have given you 10 (or 20) on this list. Hell, I could start a similar thread on coaches too haha.

Just barely missing the cut on this list: Dwayne Wade, Deron Williams (both are too talented to be THAT hated by me), Al Harrington, Mike Miller, Mike Dunleavy Jr, Ryan Anderson...

You know what? All this negativity has me thinking of a new thread haha. I'm off to shine some light on on the positive! :mrgreen:

GUYBRUSH, you are spot on in having Martin as #1. He is number one on my list too.

1. Kevin Martin (still purposely running into people to call the cheap foul. Prick)
2. LeBron (he's the 2nd best player in the league, but i still hate him)
3. Carmelo (big ego. won't win with it)
4. Manu (who flops way more than Dirk)
5. Kevin Garnett /Paul Pierce (seem like Jerks)

How the hell did I mIss Ginobli on my list!?

Sure, he flops more than Dirk... But he also has to cause he's less talented.

Great thread. Unfortunately, I don't think I have much new to add:

1. Kevin Martin
2. Derek Fisher (32, the flop you mentioned may have cost us a playoff spot that year)
3. Devin Harris
4. Kobe (the guy think he's fouled every time he has the ball, and also has never committed a foul in his life)
5. Tie - LeBron/Garnett

#1-3 all make the list because they are a bunch of floppers.

I loveeeee the KMart hate in this thread. Man, that fool made 4 Queens-Warriors games a year ANNOYING to watch. Reminds me of playing dudes without siblings at video games; they're all cheap as hell and they don't think there's anything wrong with it cause nobody leapt across the room and choked them at age 7 for playing a game with no integrity. Scruples like that get you thrown in trash cans on the blacktop. Kevin Martin is that fool 400 years ago who woulda wore a funny hat and everyone woulda kicked him in the ass when he walked down the street. Man, I hate him. Kevin Martin probably sits down when he pees.

1) Kobe - I hate him, but he is soo goood.
2) Tony Parker - I don't like his smug little face
3) Deron Williams - He is full of himself
4) D. Cousins - After the crap he pulled last year agains the W's, have no respect
5) Melo - Can't stand his attitude. Selfish prick.

Updating my list:
1) Kobe
2) Tony Parker
3) Steven Jackson - He burned us once when he acted a fool after getting a huge extention. Only thing worse then trading him for nothing, is bringing him back for something (Udoh). And he has 1 more year on his contrat for $10 million :banghead:
4) Deron Williams
5) D. Cousins

Why doesn't dwayne wade have the reputation as a flopper... he has been doing it way too much this season. Its getting a bit pathetic, especially when the refs call it on the opponent.

DWade is a horrible flopper. It got obnoxious in the '06 Finals.
