Barry Bonds, Michael Vick, Kobe Bryant & the 100 Most Hated Athletes

0 of 100

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA - APRIL 12:  Former Major League Baseball player Barry Bonds (R) arrives at federal court on April 12, 2011 in San Francisco, California.  The jury is deliberating for the third day in the Barry Bonds perjury trial where the former baseb

    LeBron James spent the majority of the summer doing three things:

    Getting paid, hitting the beach, and making enemies.

    He pissed off the entire city of Cleveland with his "Decision" to go play for the Heat. Uniting with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade made an extra 20 gallons of Haterade necessary.

    But could his antics really make him the most hated athlete ever?

    There have been a lot of dirty and sleazy players whose actions include racism, murder, and good ol' fashioned tomfoolery. No sport has ever existed without one of its stars being maligned.

    That being said, let's turn on some Maino, and get haterific.

100. Rod Smart

    Smart isn't someone most people hate on.

    Still, someone must do it quite frequently for him to get it on his jersey.

99. Philip Rivers

    There's no problem when champions talk smack to fans and other teams because they've earned the right.

    That doesn't include AFC West champions. Try playing in a big boy division.

    Or having a winning playoff record.

98. A.J. Pierzynski

    PHOENIX - MARCH 10:  A.J. Pierzynski #12 of the Chicago White Sox sits in the dugout during the MLB spring training game against the Oakland Athletics at Phoenix Municipal Stadium on March 10, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. The White Sox defeated the A's 9-5
    Christian Petersen/Getty Images

    Whining, complaining and misleading umps is what has made A.J. so unlikable.

    Having an impossibly hard last name to spell hasn't helped.

97. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    It's hard to see how the UCLA stud became so loved in his later years.

    He was one of the meanest, nastiest dudes and he even refused autographs to ball boys during his career.

    One of which was a fella by named Earvin Johnson. Does that ring a bell?

96. Douglas Jardine

5 of 100

    Having no background in cricket, my analysis on one of the most hated men in the sport is lackluster at best.

    All I can say is, Jardine developed what baseball fans call "chin music," except he did it repeatedly and on purpose.

95. Stephon Marbury

6 of 100

    Stephen Dunn/Getty Images

    His only good contributions to Earth were his extremely cheap shoes.

    Other than that, he sat around eating Vaseline and whined so much he had to end his NBA career prematurely.

    Which no one seems upset about.

94. Michael Iaconelli

7 of 100

    Classy isn't exactly the word I'd use to describe the sport. The nicest word I can think of is "wet."

    GQ even coined a new, less than flattering term for him, because because people think he disgraces the classy sport of bass fishing.

93. Tony Stewart

    KANNAPOLIS, NC - OCTOBER 12:  Tony Stewart, Stewart-Haas Racing's driver/owner, announced Mobil 1 as his co-primary sponsor with Office Depot beginning in 2011 at Stewart-Haas Racing on October 12, 2010 in Kannapolis, North Carolina.  (Photo by Rusty Jarr

    After watching the first episode of "South Park"'s 14th season, it's hard to look at Stewart without just saying "DUUUURRRR."

92. El-Hadji Diouf

    Being known more for spitting than soccer skills is nothing to brag about.

91. Shaquille O'Neal

    BOSTON - MAY 13:  Shaquille O'Neal #33 of the Cleveland Cavaliers waits to shoot a free throw in the fourth quarter against the Boston Celtics during Game Six of the Eastern Conference Semifinals of the 2010 NBA playoffs at TD Garden on May 13, 2010 in Bo
    Elsa/Getty Images

    Shaq's wit and humor have always made him a natural in front of the cameras.

    But after serving insults to Chris Bosh, Ricky Davis and Chris Quinn among others and punching the crap out of Brad Miller, let's just say he isn't the players' most popular player.

    Oh, and the majority of Lakers fans aren't exactly pleased with him. Which is quite a few people.

90. Chris Chelios

11 of 100

    DETROIT - JUNE 12:  Chris Chelios #24 of the Detroit Red Wings warms up before playing against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game Seven of the 2009 NHL Stanley Cup Finals at Joe Louis Arena on June 12, 2009 in Detroit, Michigan.  (Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty
    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Publicly degrading Detroit, one of America's proudest hockey cities, would have done it for most hockey fans.

    When he decided to sign with the Red Wings and expected to be adored, every other fan jumped on board the hate train.

89. Joe Morgan

12 of 100

    CINCINNATI - OCTOBER 10:  Joe Morgan throws out the first pitch before the Philadelphia Phillies game against the Cincinnati Reds during Game 3 of the NLDS at Great American Ball Park on October 10, 2010 in Cincinnati, Ohio.  (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Im
    Andy Lyons/Getty Images

    Morgan's baseball career was a great one, but sadly, that's not what younger generations will remember him for.

    He is now known for his color commentary on ESPN, where many wish he was replaced by a brick. At least the brick wouldn't spew out self-righteous words constantly.

88. Andy Roddick

13 of 100

    SHANGHAI, CHINA - OCTOBER 12: Andy Roddick of USA adjust his cap on his match against Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany during day two of the 2010 Shanghai Rolex Masters at the Shanghai Qi Zhong Tennis Center on October 12, 2010 in Shanghai, China.  (Photo
    Victor Fraile/Getty Images

    He's known for his bad boy behavior and taunting at fans from the court, as he made sure the second syllable in "Roddick" is always emphasized.

    Don't worry Andy, we get it. Now stop making the States look foolish.

    Every time.

87. John Cena

    ST. PETERSBURG - JULY 27:  Actor John Cena takes in the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Detroit Tigers at Tropicana Field on July 27, 2010 in St. Petersburg, Florida.  (Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images)
    J. Meric/Getty Images

    He's a big dude, so saying anything negative to his face probably isn't smart.

    But if he keeps making movies like The Marine, I just might have to.

86. Reggie Bush

15 of 100

    SAN FRANCISCO - SEPTEMBER 20:  Reggie Bush #25 of the New Orleans Saints warms up against the San Francisco 49ers during an NFL game at Candlestick Park on September 20, 2010 in San Francisco, California.  (Photo by Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images)
    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Everyone at USC has accepted that the school was in violation during Bush's Heisman year.

    Bush, however, refuses to. Owning up to it would be to girly for him.

85. Manny Ramirez

16 of 100

    OAKLAND, CA - SEPTEMBER 22:  Manny Ramirez #99 of the Chicago White Sox stands in the dugout before their game against the Oakland Athletics at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on September 22, 2010 in Oakland, California.  (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Im
    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    "Manny Being Manny" seems to wear out its welcome extremely fast, no matter where the slugger goes.

    So that's what overdosing on estrogen can do.

    His recent retirement also came into question, as there are rumors he failed his second drug test.

84. Billy Jean King

17 of 100

    NEW YORK - OCTOBER 12:  Womens Sports Foundation Founder Billie Jean King attends the 32nd Annual Salute to Women in Sports gala at The Waldorf=Astoria on October 12, 2010 in New York City.  (Photo by Bryan Bedder/Getty Images)
    Bryan Bedder/Getty Images

    Most dislike her for for allegedly cheating on her husband with hundreds of partners.

83. Tony Romo

18 of 100

    ARLINGTON, TX - OCTOBER 10:  Quarterback Tony Romo #9 of the Dallas Cowboys scrambles with the ball against the Tennessee Titans at Cowboys Stadium on October 10, 2010 in Arlington, Texas. The Titans won 34-27.  (Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)
    Stephen Dunn/Getty Images

    If you can count the number of times Tony Romo has disappointed you or let you down on just one hand, you haven't watched enough Cowboys football.

    In fact, watching two games should do the trick.

82. Marco Materazzi

19 of 100

    ROME - MAY 05:  Marco Materazzi of Inter Milan celebrates during the Tim Cup final between FC Internazionale Milano and AS Roma at Stadio Olimpico on May 5, 2010 in Rome, Italy.  (Photo by Claudio Villa/Getty Images)
    Claudio Villa/Getty Images

    Outside of Italy, it's shocking that the man who instigated soccer's most famous headbutt is more disliked than the one who did the headbutting.

    It must be due to the horrendous tattoos.

81. Bruce Bowen

20 of 100

    DALLAS - APRIL 25:  Guard Bruce Bowen #12 of the San Antonio Spurs during play against the Dallas Mavericks in Game Four of the Western Conference Quarterfinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at American Airlines Center on April 25, 2009 in Dallas, Texas. N
    Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

    Most people know Bowen for his defense, which included kicking Chris Paul in the chest and drop kicking Wally Szczerbiak. 

    Having the title "Dirtiest" anything is not something to be proud of, unless you are a gopher.

80. Jimmy Connors

21 of 100

    NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 05:  Jimmy Connors, coach of Andy Roddick, watches Roddick play Roger Federer during day ten of the 2007 U.S. Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 5, 2007 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough
    Matthew Stockman/Getty Images

    Connors' controversial methods were mostly a publicity stunt, but brought him a pack of haters nontheless.

    His real crime, however, is looking just like Milton from Office Space.

79. John Rocker

    27 Feb 2002: John Rocker  of the Texas Rangers poses during media day at Charlotte County Stadium in Port Charlotte, Florida. DIGITAL IMAGE  Mandatory Credit: Rick Stewart/Getty Images

    He just looks like a slimeball.

    His history makes it worse.

78. Tim Sylvia

23 of 100

    He's been called the Tim Duncan of MMA, if that is even possible, due to his boring tactics and awful smack talk.

    I'd hate him just for his two-tone haircut, but I digress.

77. Bill Laimbeer

24 of 100

    NEW ORLEANS - FEBRUARY 16:  NBA legend Bill Laimbeer participates in the Haier Shooting Stars competition, part of 2008 NBA All-Star Weekend at the New Orleans Arena on February 16, 2008 in New Orleans, Louisiana.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledge
    Chris Graythen/Getty Images

    Laimbeer's hard fouls and unnerving tactics annoyed people who weren't even in the same room as him.

    They get the final laugh, however, as Laimbeer apparently focused on the "beer" part after retiring.

76. Ashley Cole

25 of 100

    LONDON, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 03:  Ashley Cole of Chelsea in action during the Barclays Premier League match between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on October 3, 2010 in London, England.  (Photo by Mike Hewitt/Getty Images)
    Mike Hewitt/Getty Images

    "Cashley" would be a cool nickname, if it wasn't given because Cole is so obsessed with his money that he almost crashed his car when he heard he was only offered a £55,000 per week contract.

    Oh, and he also cheated on this bombshell.

    For shame.

75. Sidney Crosby

    PITTSBURGH - OCTOBER 07:  Sidney Crosby #87 of the Pittsburgh Penguins is stopped by Kimmo Timonen #44 of the Philadelphia Flyers at the Consol Energy Center on October 7, 2010 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Flyers defeated the Penguins 3-2.  (Photo by
    Bruce Bennett/Getty Images

    Success at a young age can bring a lot of love your way.

    Too much success, however, can bring even more hate, and that's the case with Sid the Kid.

74. Paul Pierce

27 of 100

    ORLANDO, FL - MAY 18:  Paul Pierce #34 of the Boston Celtics lies on the court in pain after he drew contact from Dwight Howard #12 of the Orlando Magic in the second quarter of Game Two of the Eastern Conference Finals during the 2010 NBA Playoffs at Amw
    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    It's nice to know "Paul Pierce hurt" brings up 124,000 images on Google.

    Mainly, because he faked about half of those injuries.

    He'll try to get the momentum by any means.

73. Randy Moss

28 of 100

    EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - OCTOBER 11:  Randy Moss #84 of the Minnesota Vikings looks on against the New York Jets at New Meadowlands Stadium on October 11, 2010 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.  (Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images)
    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    If you ask someone from New England about Randy Moss' contribution to his former team, you will likely hear praise.

    If you ask someone from Oakland about Randy Moss' contribution to his former team, you won't hear much after you get punched in the face.

72. Milton Bradley

29 of 100

    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Eight teams in 10 years normally means there's something wrong with the player traded, not the teams that are trading.

    In this case, it's obvious something is wrong with Bradley. He's about as easy to control as a Bop-It Extreme.

71. Sean Avery

30 of 100

    Bruce Bennett/Getty Images

    Yes, trash talk is extremely common in sports, and that's not Avery's problem.

    It's that he does things like joke about Jason Blake's cancer. There's nothing funny about that.

70. Nikolay Davydenko

31 of 100

    BEIJING - OCTOBER 08:  Nikolay Davydenko of Russia plays a backhand during his match against John Isner of United States  during day eight of the 2010 China Open at the National Tennis Center on October 8, 2010 in Beijing, China.  (Photo by Lintao Zhang/G
    Lintao Zhang/Getty Images

    The Jason Statham understudy and pro tennis star has been ridiculed for choosing to play in the easier tournaments, avoiding real competition.

    Rightfully so. Fans won't see the competition if the light hits Davydenko's reflective dome.

69. Adam Jones

32 of 100

    IRVING - AUGUST 28:  Cornerback Adam 'Pacman' Jones #21 of the Dallas Cowboys watches from the sidelines during a preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings after being reinstated to the league earlier in the day on August 28, 2008 at Texas Stadium in I
    Brian Bahr/Getty Images

    When the Titans drafted Jones with an early draft pick, people thought it was destiny.

    When Jones bit someone's leg in the club, he thought it was Destiny's.

68. Jay Cutler

33 of 100

    Andrew Burton/Getty Images

    For someone who talks a big game, Cutler sure knows how to back it up.

    Oh, wait ... I was thinking of people who win in the playoffs, or at least take them there.

    Hard to believe Josh McDaniels might have been right.

67. J.J. Redick

34 of 100

    ORLANDO, FL - OCTOBER 10:  J.J. Redick #7 of the Orlando Magic attempts a shot during the game against the New Orleans Hornets at Amway Arena on October 10, 2010 in Orlando, Florida. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloadin
    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images

    The prepubescent facial hair would normally be reason enough to hate Redick.

    Luckily, he put it over the top during his college days, as he was about as sportsmanlike as was Shaq to Brad Miller.

66. Peter Crouch

35 of 100

    Mike Hewitt/Getty Images

    Infidelity draws the ire of some.

    Cheating with a teenage prostitute draws more.

    Ditching Abigail Clancy for a whore draws it all.

65. Tom Brady

    Two beautiful women, three championships and more money than the Monopoly man.

    No one likes someone who has everything. It is nice to see that he isn't good at everything. 

    His dance moves are bad at best.

64. Mike Tyson

37 of 100

    Ethan Miller/Getty Images

    His cameo in The Hangover may have made some people let up for him.

    This rant, however, will give everyone a reason to hate.

63. Reggie Miller

38 of 100

    NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 3:  Reggie Miller #31 of the Indiana Pacers questions a call during their game against the New York Knicks on February 3, 2004 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The Knicks won 97-90.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges
    Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

    Miller made sure everyone in the state of New York hates him.

    That's tough to do, considering Knicks fans are normally so friendly to players who light them up like New Year's every single game.

62. Tim Tebow

39 of 100

    JACKSONVILLE, FL - SEPTEMBER 12:  Quarterback Tim Tebow #15 of the Denver Broncos practices prior to the NFL season opener game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at EverBank Field on September 12, 2010 in Jacksonville, Florida.  (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Get
    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images

    Most find Tebow's perfect persona to be a facade and can't stand how no dirt has ever been found on him.

    His biggest hater? Kyle Orton. 

61. Vince Carter

    ORLANDO, FL - OCTOBER 10:  Vince Carter #15 of the Orlando Magic reacts after a basket during the game against the New Orleans Hornets at Amway Arena on October 10, 2010 in Orlando, Florida. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by do
    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images

    Other than demanding a trade from Toronto (who wouldn't?), Carter isn't really a bad guy.

    But if you are counting on him leading your team to victory, it makes sense that you hate him.

60. Gary Neville

41 of 100

    MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 13:  Gary Neville of Manchester United faces the media during a press conference ahead of their UEFA Champions League match against Rangers held at Carrington Training Ground on September 13, 2010 in Manchester, England.  (
    Alex Livesey/Getty Images

    Neville is quite the enigma. Through my research, there was no really evidence of him warranting hate.

    However, every single soccer forum and blogger had his name near the top of the list for least liked. 

    Which can't be good.

59. Brett Myers

42 of 100

    Bob Levey/Getty Images

    The whole "I enjoy threatening reporters and beating my wife" thing really doesn't fly with the public.

    Neither does that tree stump of a beard.

58. Marcus Vick

43 of 100

    A. Messerschmidt/Getty Images

    Sure, he's the lesser known of the Vick brothers, but his crimes may be worse.

    Giving alcohol to minors, alleged sexual assault and stomping on the leg of a defenseless Elvis Dumervil are just the tip of the iceberg. 

    It's nice to see screw-ups fail.

57. Nicolas Anelka

44 of 100

    Bryn Lennon/Getty Images

    This man has been public enemy No. 1 for many soccer lovers due to his shady play.

    Personally, his similarity to Xerxes from 300 is much more hate-worthy

56. Alex Ovechkin

45 of 100

    Greg Fiume/Getty Images

    For those who only know Ovechkin as one of the top NHL players around, it may be hard to understand why people hate him, but it's really simple.

    Ovechkin's goal celebrations are about as subtle as Chicxulub, the meteor that killed the dinosaurs.

55. Lleyton Hewitt

    When your own hometown boos you, you know you're probably not well liked elsewhere.

    How did that come to happen? He tried to play the reverse race card on James Blake and a black line judge.

    Real smart.

54. Manu Ginobili

    SAN ANTONIO - MAY 09:  Guard Manu Ginobili #20 of the San Antonio Spurs in Game Four of the Western Conference Semifinals during the 2010 NBA Playoffs at AT&T Center on May 9, 2010 in San Antonio, Texas. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agree
    Ronald Martinez/Getty Images

    He may be an excellent basketball player, but his definition of good defense involves strictly flopping. 

    Also, it's a surprise that PETA didn't go after him after his bat attack.

53. Maria Sharapova

48 of 100

    MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 23:  Maria Sharapova of Russia looks on in her fourth round match against Andrea Petkovic of Germany during day seven of the 2011 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 23, 2011 in Melbourne, Australia.  (Photo by Came
    Cameron Spencer/Getty Images

    Sharapova clearly didn't get the memo that tennis is a quiet game. 

    She sounds like she's fighting through Amazonian underbrush with every movement, not just her swings.

    If Bulls and Pistons fans are excluded, The Worm would probably be closer to the top of the NBA's least liked.

    As far as men in wedding dresses goes, he's definitely the worst.

51. Rory Sabbatini

50 of 100

    KOHLER, WI - AUGUST 10:  Rory Sabbatini of South Africa hits a shot during a practice round prior to the start of the 92nd PGA Championship on the Straits Course at Whistling Straits on August 10, 2010 in Kohler, Wisconsin.  (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty

    Never taunt the best player in the sport, period.

    Especially when you and most of the people reading this have won the same number of majors.

50. Danica Patrick

    Jerry Markland/Getty Images

    Media mongers aren't well liked by anyone.

    People who tease men sexually during the Super Bowl are even less liked.

    That explains why Janet Jackson is no longer relevant.

49. Michael Irvin

52 of 100

    Irvin was a central figure on one of America's most hated teams of all time thanks to his showboating and loud mouth.

    When he decided to take part in the remake of The Longest Yard, people outside of football started hating him, too.

48. Ty Cobb

    If someone today acted as racist as Cobb used to, they'd probably be sent straight to Guantanomo.

    Gotta love swept-under-the-rug racism!

    One of the NBA's classic bad boys, Thomas refused to back down to anything in his playing days.

    That attitude remained after his career, as he refused to back down to common sense and logic during his days running the Knicks.

    Into the ground.

46. Curt Schilling

    Jim Rogash/Getty Images

    Schilling got one of the best nicknames ever from former Phillies manager Jim Fregosi:

    "Red Light Curt."

    Why? For all his poses and television camera grabbing reactions.

    Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images

    He's crossed fighting and drinking during a basketball game off his list, and only needs to shoot up drugs for the trifecta.

    With Kobe next to him, it seems unlikely.

44. Darrelle Revis

    Analysts always say that receivers get trapped and tightly covered on Revis Island.

    Not sure I understand that. It's got plenty of space, considering there are no rings or championship banners for miles.

43. Michael Schumacher

    Mark Thompson/Getty Images

    Being a champion can normally get anyone some love. Unfortunately, Schumacher did it by any means necessary.

    That includes planning crashes, marrying his ex-best friend's wife and driving teammates off the track. 

    How lovely.

    Not sure many people beat Clarett on the "People America is glad didn't get a third chance" list.

    Jason Smith/Getty Images

    It's hard to imagine that someone in NASCAR is disliked so much for risky tactics, pushing the envelope and only caring about winning.

    Honestly, the true reason to hate him is that he decided to dress like a banana.

40. Rasheed Wallace

61 of 100

    LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 17:  Rasheed Wallace #30 of the Boston Celtics reacts against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game Seven of the 2010 NBA Finals at Staples Center on June 17, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.  NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and

    Does this one really need an explanation?

    I imagine referees have a dartboard with his face in the center.

    Tom Dulat/Getty Images

    He didn't earn the nickname FIGJAM for no reason.

    Don't know what it means? It stands for "F*** I'm good, just ask me."

38. Bryan Marchment

63 of 100

    CALGARY, CANADA - MARCH 29: Bryan Marchment #7 of the Calgary Flames gets ready on the ice during the game against the Los Angeles Kings on March 29, 2006 at the Pengrowth Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. (Photo By Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)
    Bruce Bennett/Getty Images

    During a 12-year run, Marchment received 13 suspensions, mostly for his patented knee-to-knee low blows.

    That's got to be one of the more impressive records in hockey.

37. John Terry

64 of 100

    ZILINA, SLOVAKIA - SEPTEMBER 15:  John Terry of Chelsea in action during the UEFA Champions League Group F match between MSK Zilina and Chelsea at the Pod Dubnom Stadium on September 15, 2010 in Zilina, Slovakia.  (Photo by Hamish Blair/Getty Images)
    Hamish Blair/Getty Images

    What kind of excuse can he have for having an affair with friend and teammate Wayne Bridge's girlfriend, which caused Bridge to quit an English National team that desperately needed him?

    Just one: Bridge's girlfriend is hot.

36. Pete Rose

    Andy Lyons/Getty Images

    There's really only one reason baseball's hit king remains out of the Hall of Fame:

    The older generation's hate.

    If it were up to people my age, he'd be unanimously selected.

35. Charles Barkley

    Nowadays, Chuck can say or do nearly anything and he will be loved.

    But in his playing days, he didn't exactly find open arms after spitting on a young girl, telling the world why he hated white people and ruining the dreams of kids who wanted to be like Mike.

    Bow Wow was crushed.

34. Claude Lemieux

67 of 100

    ANAHEIM, CA - APRIL 21:  Claude Lemieux #32 of the San Jose Sharks looks on against the Anaheim Ducks during Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinal Round of the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs at Honda Center on April 21, 2009 in Anaheim, California.
    Harry How/Getty Images

    Lemieux could easily play the Bond villain he looks like with all the things he's done to fellow hockey players.

    Giving Kris Draper a severe concussion and a broken jaw, nose and cheekbone seems like the worst thing someone could do, but the former Shark doesn't like to be outdone.

    So he tried to bite off an opponent's finger during a fight. Tasty.

33. Ray Lewis

    BALTIMORE - SEPTEMBER 26:  Ray Lewis #52 of the Baltimore Ravens is introduced before the game against the Cleveland Browns  at M&T Bank Stadium on September 26, 2010 in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ravens defeated the Browns 24-17. (Photo by Larry French/Get
    Larry French/Getty Images

    If Ray Lewis wasn't so praised in the NFL world, who knows if he would have been acquitted of murder charges.

    But hey, I'm sure the $250,000 fine he paid really made it up to the families someone destroyed on January 31, 2000.

32. Rafael Palmeiro

69 of 100

    BALTIMORE, MD - AUGUST 29: Rafael Palmiero #25 of the Baltimore Orioles watches from the dugout during the game against the Oakland Athletics on August 29, 2005 at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland.  (Photo By Jamie Squire/Getty Images)
    Jamie Squire/Getty Images

    Now we can add steroid users to the list of people who lie to Congress.

    It used to just include mobsters, murderers, corrupt politicians and bank executives. Palmeiro could pass for those.

31. Plaxico Burress

    LEBANON - JANUARY 14: New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress arrives at the Lebanon County Courthouse January 14, 2009 in Lebanon, Pa.  Burress is scheduled to appear in a civil trial in a dispute with an automobile dealer over what he owes in dama
    Chris Gardner/Getty Images

    Giants fans sure did love losing their top wide receiver to self-inflicted wounds.

    But hey, at least he got to wear sweatpants to the club. Not too often that opportunity comes around, right?

30. Brock Lesnar

    Jon Kopaloff/Getty Images

    Lesnar's annihilation of so many opponents makes people wonder if the MMA star is one of the world's top athletes.

    His growling, screaming and taunting of fans and media alike makes people wonder if he's worth watching in the first place.

29. Chad Ochocinco

72 of 100

    CHARLOTTE, NC - SEPTEMBER 26:  Chad Ochocinco #85 of the Cincinnati Bengals during their game against the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium on September 26, 2010 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
    Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

    Ocho must have an alarm set in his room that tells him how many days it has been since his name was last mentioned on cable television.

    If the count is above one, he changes his name.

28. Floyd Mayweather

    LAS VEGAS - MAY 01: Floyd Mayweather Jr. in action against Shane Mosley during their welterweight fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 1, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mayweather Jr. defeated Mosley by unanimous decison.  (Photo by Jed Jacobsohn/Getty
    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Alleged domestic violence and racist rants are just a small bit of the reason Mayweather doesn't have the love of his peers.

    The self-proclaimed title "Money" hasn't helped much either.

27. Latrell Sprewell

74 of 100

    LOS ANGELES - MARCH 31:  Latrell Sprewell #8 of the Minnesota Timberwolves looks on during a break in action against the Los Angeles Lakers on March 31, 2005 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agree
    Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images

    My mother always taught me to never like a man whose first and last names rhyme.

    After Spree choked out his coach and told the world he can't feed his kids on $14 million, mom was clearly right.

26. JaMarcus Russell

75 of 100

    Jed Jacobsohn/Getty Images

    Singlehandedly setting back a franchise and codeine possession is bad enough as it is.

    Not sharing the drank with Al Davis is the real reason to hate him.

25. Robbie Savage

76 of 100

    Clive Brunskill/Getty Images

    No one collects the most yellow cards in the Premier League's history by accident.

    Ergo, Savage worked his ass off to be a jerk. That alone puts him on the list.

24. Todd Bertuzzi

    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images

    Bertuzzi went from friend to enemy of so many in just one night.

    Hard to believe people don't forgive him for fracturing three vertebrae in Steve Moore's neck and giving Moore a grade three concussion, vertebral ligament damage and facial cuts. 

    Go figure.

23. Gilbert Arenas

    If Stephen Jackson thinks you are an idiot for doing something, then you've hit rock bottom.

    If it involves guns and the excuse that they are safer in an arena with 20,000 people in it nightly, then you've dented the floor.

22. Mark McGwire

    Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images

    OK, so he did steroids. Big whoop, why does that make him special?

    Simple. His "I don't want to talk about the past" speech to Congress might have been the most lame dodge of a question ever. 

    And he did it 20 times.

21. David Beckham

80 of 100

    CHESTER, PA - OCTOBER 07: David Beckham #23 of the Los Angeles Galaxy waves to the crowd after the game against the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park on October 7, 2010  in Chester, Pennsylvania. The Galaxy won 1-0. (Photo by Drew Hallowell/Getty Images)
    Drew Hallowell/Getty Images

    Thanks for tricking the Los Angeles Galaxy into one of biggest contracts in American sports history, and then either being injured or playing elsewhere during the majority of it.

20. Alex Rodriguez

    NEW YORK - OCTOBER 12:  Alex Rodriquez #13 of the New York Yankees answers questions from the press during a workout session at Yankee Stadium on October 12, 2010 in the Bronx borough of New York City.  (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)
    Andrew Burton/Getty Images

    Just another case of someone who denies something repeatedly and then admits at the perfect time to get more media attention.

    Pray that he never breaks Barry Bonds' home run mark. Someone who looks like they wear a pound of lip gloss daily shouldn't be in any record book. 

    Unless it's sponsored by Maybelline.

19. Joey Barton

82 of 100

    Shaun Botterill/Getty Images

    Many violent convictions and alcoholism are just a few things that make Barton so hateable.

    Putting out a cigar in a man's eye, however, is the icing on the hate cake.

18. Sammy Sosa

83 of 100

    Corking his bat and taking more drugs than Lindsay Lohan was one thing.

    But trying to ruin a remake of Casper, The Friendly Ghost is much worse.

17. Kurt Busch

    If a search on Google for "Most Hated NASCAR Driver" brings up your biography, there's a problem.

16. Albert Haynesworth

    Christian Petersen/Getty Images

    It's unbelievable that someone paid as much as the Redskins' defensive tackle could actually arrive to training camp so late and be out of shape.

    He must have left his brain on the table next to the $20 million check and a Costco-size box of Peeps.

15. Floyd Landis

    Landis admitted to using PEDs for the majority of his career and many hoped that would be the end of his appearances.

    Sadly, we were wrong, as he refuses to go down without Lance Armstrong. 

    Which means we're stuck looking at that ugly mug.

14. Terrell Owens

    Every decade has a disease: cancer (2000s), AIDS (1990s), polio (1910s), etc.

    Hopefully, the next one will be named after Mr. Owens. It's only fair with all the destruction he's caused.

13. Marion Jones

    Hiroko Masuike/Getty Images

    The IOC stripped Jones of all medals earned after 2000, which she admitted was the year she started using steroids.

    For some people, jail time for that would be enough. Don't tell that to the ex-Olympian, as she also was under investigation for a check counterfeiting scheme.

    Some people just don't know when to quit.

12. Brett Favre

89 of 100

    EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - OCTOBER 11:  Quarterback Brett Favre #4 of the Minnesota Vikings wipes his forehead as he walks on the field in the second half against the New York Jets at New Meadowlands Stadium on October 11, 2010 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
    Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Brett Favre has smashed so many NFL records in his 20 years under center. Will he try to set the record for the most retirements and comebacks in a career?

    Sadly, setting the marks for "most incomplete retirements" and "sexting" will be how many remember him.

11. Ben Roethlisberger

    Allegedly sexually assault me once, shame on you.

    Allegedly sexually assault me twice, shame on you again, considering he only get suspended four games.

    King James may want to add "professional bridge burner" to his résumé after what he did to Cleveland.

    Figure skating seems like such a cutesy sport.

    Until you've threatened Harding. She will pay a hitman to go after your knees.

    Then neither of you win.

8. Kobe Bryant

93 of 100

    David Ramos/Getty Images

    Although Lakers fans would rather see Bryant on the "Top 10 People Whose Seed I'd Like to Steal" list, one thing needs to be made clear.

    His recent alleged homophobic slur at a referee caught on camera, helped Kobe climb back up this list. 

    His early career cockiness didn't earn him many friends across the country.

    Neither did the alleged rape.

7. Cristiano Ronaldo

94 of 100

    Denis Doyle/Getty Images

    Soccer's pretty boy must take home his mammoth salary and pay someone to come up with more reasons for people to dislike him.

    As if ridiculous flopping, unnecessary theatrics and inappropriate taunting wasn't enough, Ronaldo has the nerve to deflower everything that moves within an inch of his life.

    The nerve.

6. Jose Canseco

    YOKOHAMA, JAPAN - MAY 26:  Former Oakland Athletics slugger Jose Canseco looks on prior to the match with Choi Hong-man at first Round of Super Hulk Tournament during Dream.9 at Yokohama Arena on May 26, 2009 in Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan. Canseco lost at

    Canseco defines the phrase "If I can't win, no one can!" after he keeps writing books trying to drag other baseball players into the grave with him.

    Most people wonder if the ball that bounced of his head for a home run actually did brain damage.

5. Roger Clemens

    Mark Wilson/Getty Images

    Obstruction of Congress and allegations of adultery would normally be grounds to hate someone.

    But sporting a mullet and acting this bad takes the cake for the Rocket.

4. Michael Vick

    Vick should get a stipend or bonus for all the tickets PETA buys just to heckle him in Philadelphia.

    Or maybe a kennel.

3. Tiger Woods

    NEWPORT, WALES - OCTOBER 04:  Tiger Woods of Team USA attends a press conference following Europe's 14.5 to 13.5 victory over the USA at the 2010 Ryder Cup at the Celtic Manor Resort on October 4, 2010 in Newport, Wales.  (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Ima
    Sam Greenwood/Getty Images

    Woods' infidelity saga graced the cover of the New York Post for more consecutive days than the 9/11 attacks.

    Yet no one thinks the golfer is a terrorist, except if mistresses count as weapons of mass destruction.

2. Barry Bonds

    Scott Halleran/Getty Images

    There are two reasons to hate Zeppelin head.

    1) Many fellow players thought using the word "teammate" to describe him would be a compliment they'd never want to pay to Bonds.

    2) He broke two of the coolest records in sports, leaving a cheater in the Hall of Fame.

    After his recent trial where he was ultimately convicted of obstructing justice and the jury is still considering other charges. He keeps digging himself a deeper hole, but nothing like the #1 on this list.

1. O.J. Simpson

    The ex-USC Trojan had people flocking to call him a murderer.

    Parades were thrown when he got sent to jail for robbery, as many people saw Simpson finally getting what he deserved.

    No one is even close to that.
