I have some friends who know nothing about nba but they see lets say kobe on the screen and they go "ughhh, i hate that guy".

so what is a legitimate reason to hate a player?
ex.
if a player is the star on a rival team?
you don't like a certain player's style of play?
you simply don't like his/her attitude?

wat are your thoughts NT

btw this is NOT a "i hate kobe/lebron/etc. because..." thread

someone who gets shady superstar calls for them, or nothing called against them.


i'm a big believer in fair play.


even when i hoop, i never call fouls unless someone blatantly goes for body/arm and not ball.

I know it sound naive but i never thought people would hate someone just to rebel or go against the grain...

What gives someone the right to hate anybody?

Some people just rub you the wrong way... It is what it is. I can't tell you exactly why I like and dislike certain people. I just do.
