non of the people you listed. As a knicks fan I would have to say Charles Smith, the biggest losser ever to loss at anything. Death to Smith, just kidding but I hated him more than any other player.

Gotta go with Laimbeer, I think. He was roundly booed in many, many arenas. None of the other guys listed even come close.

Other- Kobe Bryant. I've heard more people saying that they dislike/hate Kobe than of any other player. :sigh:

I was thinking Charles Barkley or Reggie Miller when I read the title of this thread

reggie miller and madison square garden were the first things to click in my head, he certainly did his part to make that entire arena full of fans hate him with a passion in the early-mid 90's.

I have to go with an organization instead of just a person.

Teams with rings but with cockyness.

Lakers, Bull's SCRUBS, Houston's second tier players, yes Drexler, Sam Cassell, Horry.

btw, Horry got my double hated!

First person I thought of was Reggie Miller too. I voted for Laimbeer tho, since Reggie is SO hated, he isn't even on the list.

Why exactly was Rick Barry so disliked?

It is not just was it is still going on. All of the current players that he played with are the most of the head guys for other franchises now. None of those former teammates or other players will even give him an interview because of his cockiness as a player and his attitude he had. There was a great segment on why he is not in the NBA today on Real Sports on HBO a bunch of weeks ago. I do not remember why exactly he is not in the NBA but part of it was because of his attitude as a player. I think he forced to coach Highschool basketball because no one else will even give him a position with an NBA team not even as an assistant coach.

You forgot to list one of the more obvious guys in the NBA... Shawn Bradley. At his height, his elbows have found the faces of many post guys trying to guard him.

This is what I was going to say. While Maurice Lucas was hated by opponents. Rick Barry is basically hated by every player he ever played with and the guys he even worked with while announcing. He may never work in the NBA and it is purely because they don't like him personally. Heck I don't even think his sons like him.
