    Least enjoyable superstar to watch?

    Jeremy Lin is likely #1

    Second would be Carmelo Anthony... and third would be Rudy "KD" Gay.

    Come on, Jokic is incredibly fun to watch. His offensive arsenal is well-rounded, and he'll have one or two jaw-dropping passes every game.

    Sometimes he'll spend 5 minutes into half time flopping that huge velociraptor mouth of his at the refs. It's annoying because it if was Beverley or Cousins or Paul they'd get T'd up instantly.

    This is one of the reasons why I think we need to draft Green. He will bring excitement vs. Mobley, who I think has a very good game but it's basic and won't be as enjoyable to watch

    Embiid. Used to be Giannis, but he did some pretty impressive stuff in the playoffs this year.

    Feel like I might get struck by lightning, but injured Harden is pretty painful to watch.

    I don’t really enjoy watching Doncic that much, TBH. He’s slow and floor bound, and unlike Bill Simmons, I don’t think his assists are all that special.

    Luka. Guy moves in slow motion. I’ve seen a lot of people say Embiid, I agree.

    I've never enjoyed watching LeBron play. Somehow I just don't like bulky players on the perimeter handling the ball. I guess the same goes with Giannis. Maybe I am too much of a traditionalist. I like smaller, quicker players to play outside scoring or making plays. Big players looks better in the low post or in the high post for motion offense.

    I also don't like foul-baiting, the so-called "creating contact" kind of game. Harden used to be that. But it has become less frequent since he mastered the step back.

    For me, Lillard. Just don't like watching the Blazers

    Yeah he's a prolific scorer, hit's crazy 3's, just not feeling the vibe of him or that team

    No votes for Curry and his mouth guard chewing arrogance? Hated watching Donkey braying to the refs as well during all those GS series.

    In my book, that’s an instant classic akin to Jordan’s move against the Lakers.

    Thread should be titled "Which star player are you most salty about." tbh

    I don't mind watching any of them

    If relax the superstar definition.

    Paul Millsap
    Blake Griffin (non dunks)
    Shawn Marion (jump shot)
    Dreymond (jump shot)
    Lebron (crab walk and jump shot, his handle)
    Westbrook's (handle, high dribble)
    Robin Lopez (hookshot)
    Marcus Camby (jump shot)
    Joakim Noah(jump shot and free throw)

    LOL. Not everyone. But yeah, some of the posts clearly are not about whether they like how they play as a player but whether they like the person or the team he plays on.

    As far as I'm concerned, the Greek is neck and neck with Curry. Curry, with his self-entitled "my **** don't stink!" air, gnawing on his mouthpiece because he knows it's irritating to everyone except his most ardent fans. Even worse? He's damned good, the b*stard.

    Giannis? In my humble opinion, Harden should own one of those MVP trophies. Antetokoumpo is a great player, but not as great as he thinks he is, thanks to the treatment he gets from the refs, as you point out. In my opinion.
