After watching the game yesterday versus Stanford in the zoo I couldn't help but see my dislike/hatred for Dwight Powell grow as the game went on. He's a pretty good player, but his love affair with refs was really getting on my nerves. Big men that flop and exaggerate when they get touched are lame. His good play, antics, and pansy moves made me hate him by the end of the game. I even got yelled at by an usher "to watch my language" for calling Powell a pussy.
So with that it got me thinking which other PAC-12/PAC-10 players in the past and present have been the most hateable.
Other guys on my list include: (I didn't follow PAC-12 hoops as closely when I was younger so these guys are all fairly recent)
UCLA's Reeves Nelson (biggest douche I have ever seen. I want to pee in his bed and see how he likes it)
UW's Venoy Overton (Hated him as a player, a rapist, and a pimp)
ASU's James Harden (respect how good he is, but want to shave off his beard in his sleep)
Cal's Jorge Gutierrez (How could you not hate this guy?)
Just about everybody on this year's UCLA team (Slow mo is very easy to dislike, Bazz is Kobe-like, the Wear twins...lame)
Oregon's E.J. Singler (you are almost as gay as your brother...and that's hard to do)
ASU's Ty Abbott (No easy buckets)
UW's Isaiah Thomas (I hate you for making that buzzer beater shot in the PAC-12 tourney)
Colorado's Sabatino Chen (for randomly having the game of his life against us)
OSU's Joe Burton (for being a fat-ass that somehow plays good against us)
USC's Daniel Hackett (not really sure why, but didn't like him)
Wazzu's Brock "The Scrotum" Motum (For fouling on every play last week)
Utah's...um...I guess Keith Van Horn?
Would be interesting to see who the hateable players were before my time so who is on your hate list?
