    I hated Seattle but never really Payton/Kemp. Now Karl, Ellis, McMillan, and sometimes Hawkins and Shempf I hated.

    This list begins and ends with Karl Malone for me.


    I actually kind of liked/respected those Sonics in the 90's.

    i started watching nba around 1999 so I do not really hate karl malone or stockton, or payton/ kemp, however I do hate the lakers for last year's 2009 semifinal playoff series especially kobe and fisher and his dirty elbows and kobe for kneeing battier on the face! I also yet the deron williams/ boozer jazz teams of 2007/08 for knocking rox out playoffs. I think rox did well in 1990s winning two titles.

    Can't really hate Shawn Kemp, the man was a worthy adversary. Same goes for Kobe Bryant (see his YouTube video about enlisting Hakeem's help).

    Karl Malone on the other hand gets my vote. Despise(d) that guy. :mad:

    How about Kobe or Tracy McGrady?

    Dirk shouldn't be on there, he's an accomplished guy who isn't worth hating or liking.

    No Scottie? I mean, he was never a Rocket after all.
