There are plenty of sports idols that are beloved and idolized by millions of people across the world. They are considered role model's and are imitated by followers who would give anything to get in some sort of contact with their idol.
In other players cases, an average NBA fan would rather get in contact with a player to give them a swift, solid message to the face. While some players can be loved, others can be hated with a passion by fans and players alike that would give anything to see that specific players career end in the worst of ways. They are hated for many reasons, whether it's for being arrogant, ego-maniacal, or just playing dirty, but most hated players have made an entire career of being the player on the court to despise.
The hated love the attention because of the motivation it provides, but the more arrogant the player gets from receiving all the attention the more he becomes hated. The loathing of a player have sometimes made a career out of it as in some of the cases of the players we are about to see, but the players probably wouldn't have it any other way since they become the center of attention.
Some NBA players are known for being clutch. Others for being winners. This isn't the list to come to if you want to read about ambition and winning, this is a list for the haters of the world to let out their true feelings. I would also like to point out that in no way is this list my personal opinion. I based it solely on what the fans' consensus believes.
Grab some haterade.
