Pierce #8 on list of least liked NBA players


Forbes Magazine has published a poll of the NBA's Most Disliked Players.

In a bit of a surprise, Paul Pierce is 8th:

Some fans just have strong feelings about Celtics and Lakers players. Plus, Pierce was very outspoken on the union’s negotiating tactics during the recent NBA lockout.

I'm not buying it. I highly doubt his role in the lockout impacted his likeability. You want more proof this poll is garbage? Kevin Garnett did not make the list. 

Here's the entire list:

  1. Kris Humphries 
  2. LeBron James
  3. Kobe Bryant
  4. Tony Parker
  5. Metta World Peace
  6. Chris Bosh
  7. Carmelo Anthony
  8. Paul Pierce
  9. Dwyane Wade
  10. Lamar Odom

Humphries and Parker? What did they do besides divorce their celebrity wives? Nothing. True NBA fans could give a damn about that stuff.
