In light of Richard Sherman‘s postgame explosion on Michael Crabtree after beating the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship, I decided to put together a list of the talented yet most arrogant players currently in the NBA.

Much of the media was in an uproar about Sherman’s comments, but trash talk is what makes sports great. The five players that have made my list are not only arrogant and cocky but have a track record of thinking much like Sherman: that they are the best in the league at what they do. Read More »

Thank God this — totally fabricated — rumor has finally been put to bed. After an on-court altercation between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett extended beyond the hardwood last season, outlets, including us, picked up an erroneous report KG had said Carmelo’s wife, La La, “tasted like Honey Nut Cheerios.” In La La’s new book, The Love Playbook, she divulges the truth surrounding the cereal brand heard round the world.

Current Nets forward Kevin Garnett can be a bundle of intensity that’s oftentimes overwhelming. Every time he headbutt’s the basket stanchion before games, its easy to say he’s crazy. But the love the Celtics crowd showed him upon his return with teammate Paul Pierce Sunday night, celebrated that warrior mentality. Their tribute video was every bit as fierce as Garnett was during his six seasons in Boston. Read More »

It’s a strange time for Rajon Rondo. He’s finally returned to the court after ACL surgery last year, but he’s missing the three biggest influences on his basketball career. In the next week, he’ll face off against two of them, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, when they make their return to Boston on Jan. 26 for their first official visit back to the city and the arena where they captured the 2008 NBA Title and came within a quarter of claiming the title in 2010. But even months after the trade, KG and Pierce still share a special connection with their “little brother.” Read More »

There’s a clear difference in a team that’s attempting to tank and a team that is flat out bad. There are teams that are constructed to be bad. Take the Philadelphia 76ers for example. The roster consists of players like Elliot Williams, Lorenzo Brown, James Anderson and Brandon Davies. Bless your soul if you know who any of those players are. Read More »

Once in awhile, we’re treated to watching Dwyane Wade unleash his athleticism all over the heads of multiple defenders, just as a reminder to know that he’s still capable of doing so. The poster dunks are less frequent, partly because of age and the fact that he doesn’t get the ball nearly as much as he did pre-LeBron, but they’re still harrowing to watch because of just how impressive Wade makes it look.

PLEASE don’t SHOOT! Welcome to the more shots than points club.

Let’s try and add some context to the term chucker. What quantifies a player as a chucker? Many NBA players have bad nights or shoot poor percentages from time to time. We could list lots of guys who are lacking a solid shot selection — Josh Smith, Rudy Gay and Carmelo Anthony could all have cases made. However, those three guys are, at times, great offensive players. They’re not who I’m talking about. Read More »
