5 NBA Youngsters Who May Eventually Play the Villain Role

Over the last two years, we've seen LeBron James and Dwight Howard incite, not just the ire of a single city, but the discontent of fans all over the league with their refusal to stay with the team that drafted them.

James had his "Decision" that infuriated fans enough that they burned his Cleveland jerseys and spilled into the internet with vitriol and ill wishes. Dwight Howard could've learned from LeBron's mistakes but instead chose to carry out his own dramatic venture for far longer than ever needed to be.

Dwight went through the process of trying to get his coach fired while hemming and hawing at the idea of sticking around in Orlando past his current contract. After deciding to not exercise his early termination option in the 2012 offseason, Dwight had back surgery, missed the rest of the season plus playoffs and then decided he wanted to be traded again.

This obviously isn't the first time we've seen this and it probably won't be the last, much to the chagrin of fans everywhere.

Let's take a look at the five young players who could end up following in these footsteps in a few years.
