I just got pick-pocketed at the gym. I am trying not to completely rage out and kill people. So far this detached emotionless response is working, but it's tenuous. At any moment I might just snap and start killing people in alphabetical order.
Accordingly, because I am really freakin' sick of listening to bullshit rumors that will never amount to anything (i.e., Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, blah blah blah), and to educate the masses a little bit - here is my list of athletes, mostly NBA players, whom I have grown to dislike, hate, desise, abhor, detest, loathe and generally wish great ill-will upon. Is it healthy? No, but like Violator from Hot Tub Time Machine... do I give a f--k? No!
The list according to me. Each of the following deserves your scorn in my opinion:
(in no particular order)
basically everyone on that 1994 Knicks team
Jerry Sloan (yes, lots of Jazz players/coaches)
basically everyone on the Utah Jazz from 1988-1997
Rafer Alston (obviously)
Kenny Smith (yeah, I said it - it's a long story)
Charles Barkley while he was a Rocket
Danny Ainge (Robert Horry must have had a good reason to throw the towel)
Matt Barnes (f--kin' thug)
LeBron James -- and I've been saying this long before The Decision
Drew Gooden (from his Kansas days)
Tayshaun Prince (for blocking Reggie's shot in 2004)
and I'll add to this if I have any more inspiration... and you're welcome to post your hated guys in the comments, too. Anyone who says "Yao" or "Scola" gets banned. Anyone who says "Robert Horry" I will track down their IP address and treat you like I want to treat the aforementioned pick-pocket. Carry on...
