The Top 20 Trash Talkers In NBA History

*With all of the recent events surrounding the Carmelo Anthony/Kevin Garnett feud, and the trash talk involved that lit the Internet on fire, we figured it was a good time to repost our piece on the top 20 trash talkers of all time, originally published in October of 2012.*

David Stern and the rest of the suits might be charged with trying to take the fun out of the NBA, but trash talk will never die. It’s too engrained in the culture, too fundamental when it comes to egotistical athletes playing at the top of the game. Who grows up and doesn’t talk trash? I know I did, and it fired me up, forced me to back it up.

If you didn’t talk trash, chances are you were either Tim Duncan or you never got off the bench. Everyone has different uses for it, too. Some players need it to fire themselves up. Some are a little unstable mentally and emotionally. And others just can’t stop talking.

The NBA had some good talkers over the years, from the guys on the sidelines to the ones actually on the court to even the owners. We went through the tape, and picked out who we thought were the 20 best in NBA history (or at least as far back as current history goes…).

    Why the f..ig is the Dime twitter account still publishing this every day?

    What is the point of just going through every article on the site and re-advertising it over twitter? One thing is for sure, it’s an easy way to lose the majority of your twitter followers!

    You know you’re the only basketball “news” (it has to be new to news) to constantly regurgitate the same tired old pages day after day, never ending. Anyone who checks twitter more than once a day is going to drop you quicker than a Kardashian drops a marriage to an NBA player!

    Having a twitter account churning out the same old sh…eets of pages, day after day, year after year, isn’t staying “cool” and current, it’s not interacting with your user base on social media; it just shows how out of touch (and desperate for hits) you are!

    Damn shame, because when you do write some new articles they tend to be of a higher quality than almost everywhere else, but you should either learn to user social networks properly (to stay current and contemporary), or hire a company who knows how to do so (and no, I can’t recommend one. I’m not writing this for personal gain!).

    As it stands you’re just taking your most loyal customers and dedicated followers for mugs! People only take that for so long before they’ll dump you for the one of the other million websites out there, most of which whom are run like they exist in the 21st century!
