NBA Trash Talk Special Edition: NBA All-Hated Team

Hi, all. In last week’s edition of NBA Trash Talk, I encouraged you to get your hating caps on and to vote for the players you most despised. Having collected and tabulated your responses – of which there were many – I can now present the world’s first NBA All-Hated team. Before we begin, I’d like to thank the good folks at the Post Up forum (www.postup.redinsect.com) and the message board users at JustBBall.com for their invaluable input, as well as everyone who voted using the comment box or via email.

You all deserve a P.H.D. (a Player-Hater Degree, if you didn’t know) for your efforts. I was amazed to discover the level of hatred in the fans out there, and surprised at some of your choices. The usual suspects have their places, and a few I chose as sleepers turned out to be less popular than expected. In short, there was more than enough hatred to go around, and you showed no embarrassment in calling out those you loathe. That said, I’d recommend that some of you seek professional help; it’s unnatural to hate men you’ve never met quite that much.
