Over the years, athletes on other teams have come to New York and have gone above and beyond their abilities to have them become legends for being N.Y. Team Killers.
Reggie Miller, Manny Ramirez, Michael Jordan, Dan Marino, Emmitt Smith, Mario Lemieux, and Greg Maddux have all come along in the past 20 years and have been killing New Yorkers' favorite teams. Now there is a new group of enemies that New York fans just love to hate, and this is my top 10 of those athletes.
My Criteria: I first wanted every team reprsented that is a New York-based team, so at least one athlete from each major sports league is listed.
Outside of Stephon Marbury—he is a special case—players who played in New York and performed badly before leaving are not included.
So no Carl Pavano, no John Abraham, no Aaron Heilman. That could be a list all by itself so it wont be on this list.
The Devils/Nets (Not N.Y. Teams) were not included.
So Without further stalling, here they are, the Top 10 Athletes hated by N.Y. Fans....Enjoy!
