    Florida-hated all of them. Seriously they always have ppl that are easy to hate. Jason williams, noah, teddy dupay, walsh.

    Louisville- liked Russ and siva. Hated behanon, probably more just can think of any right now.

    Tennessee- disliked bobby maze. Lofton is the only one I ever liked.

    Iu- liked oladipo.

    Mizzou - loved non of them, hated all of them.

    Best get from Missouri, imo, was Brandon Rush. Outstanding player, and chapped their hide to no end.

    Michael Gbinije

    Alex Murphy

    Olek Czyz

    Elliot Williams

    Taylor King

    Most Hated

    Quinn Cook

    Tyus Jones

    Austin Rivers

    JJ Redick

    Kyle Singler

    Seth Curry

    Obviously, my hated list is filled with guys who flop a lot and sometimes act ridiculous when they score. Also, one who elbows people surreptitiously and twists men's nipples. My like list is pretty obvious. Guys who wised up and got the hell out or were shown the door. Seriously, there are some Dukies I have no problem liking though (Kelly, the Plumlee brothers, Okafor, Scheyer). It's all in good fun. I mean, their antics truly get on my nerves and I even find them pathetic at times....still, after they leave Duke I wish no ill will for them.

    "Josh Harrellson"

    really haha, what was there to dislike, worked hard to make it to the league. i usually do not dislike other players. Im a fan of basketeball regardless of who they play for. I do root against some teams, but more of because of their fans, which i know is kind of silly,rather than because of players or a coach. boehim would be the exception.

    duke
    like/ Jay williams= maybe favorite ncaa player ever
    boozer= bear
    hurley
    brand/ liked it when he stood up forhimself to duke fans giving him heck for going pro
    Hated/
    leatner - more likeable lately
    reddick
    battier- annoying how hard he played d, flopped alot, but still was an all time college great defender, but i know mkg got under alot of peoples skin for his tenacity as well
    maggette
    rivers

    Unc
    like/ vince carter, played one on one with him, cool dude.
    meeks
    ty lawson-fastest player i had seen until wall
    Brad Daughtery
    felton
    sheed- many rival fans didnt care for him
    mcants- to tick off unc fans
    and of course his airness

    dislike/

    jawad williams- looked kinda like his airness, had that going for him, meh play tho imo
    montross
    jr smith- almost a tarheel, a chickenhead
    hairston- i know he was thrown under the bus to protect unc and sweep that ordeal under the rug, but still don't like him
    stackhouse- jordan in his own mind
    ware twins

    Kansas
    like- boesche
    russell robinson
    sasha
    some homeless man i met in chinatown who claimed he was on the danny manning title team. I bought him a fifth, he had it all in life and now had nothing.
    jaque vaughn

    dislike/sherron- runaway winner. "aint no boy gonna take my spot' in reference to wall being the talk of college basketball that season.

    Paul Pierce- maybe i dont like him because he came in and took antoine walkers team away from him haha

    hinrich and collison- i was jealous of them going to back to back final four, cause by then i had finally figured out our coach just wasn't a final four caliber coach and then hearing from unc fans and kansas fans uk ought to built a statue for him, and said he was a good enough coach for us but he wasn't on their programs level. snakes in the grass!!

    wiggins- biggest mistake of bron bron's career being so mule headed about wiggins playing at cleveland, oh!! what could have been!!!

    Hate is a strong statement. Hard for me to hate any 18-22 year old young man that I just watch play ball on tv. There is only one action by a kid I can think of that I truely hated, when Timberlake got stomped by Lattner. Fisticuffs during a game is different but to just stomp a guy that's down, that you weren't just in a fight with is evil.


    I am old and tired of that whole hate thing. I like to watch those young men play some basketball.

    I agree. The ones that do hate 18-22 year olds are probably in that same age group. I liked Anthony Davis demeanor on the court and of course his skill.

    Curious, why do you hate Rondo? I ask because it seems most UL fans are upset Pitino did not go after him and don't really hate him just more of a player who got away then anything.

    can't really say I've ever truly hated a UL player but there's been a few that have been extremely difficult to like.

    Chris Jones is selfish
    Chane Behanan was an ass clown that couldn't stay out of trouble
    Edgar Sosa was annoying
    Luke Hancock was damn near dirty and had the old man YMCA game that pissed you off as an opposing fan when he'd score.
    Terrence Williams was a cocky loud mouth

    I could justify a reason to dislike more of em, but a few stand out.

    UNC dislike

    Hansborough; would've loved him if he was at Duke, hated that he passed Reddick for the ACC all time scoring title

    Rashaad Mccants: Couldn't stand him them and cant stand him now

    Danny Green

    Marvin Williams: Never really knew what the big deal about him was coming out of college. Its was like he was crowned before he ever did anything. Plus I'm a Hawks fan.

    UNC likes

    David Noel: Always played really hard. left it on the court

    Ty Lawson: Just so fast. Fun to watch.

    Ed Cota: Knew who he was and what he could do. Really good college basketball player


    Duke: not too fond of

    Taylor King: knucklehead who wasted his talent

    Josh McRoberts: Just never really warmed up to him

    Austin Rivers: Kinda the same as McRoberts. But he did give me one of the greatest Duke memories ever. And kinda like Marvin Williams. Was really crowned before he did much and you could just tell even coming out of high school that his game may not translate well to the League. Don't get me wrong he was good though

    Greg Newton: just not fond of him for some reason

    Duke likes

    Scheyer: favorite Duke player ever, just ahead of Wojo

    Wojo: Got everything he could and more with what he had to work with

    Battier: Just a great player, person and winner

    Singler and Nolan Smith and Zoubek all together: 2010 team was my favorite Duke team

    Jay Williams: Just so fun to watch!! At his best he was pretty much unstoppable.

    Bobby Hurley: Amazing PG and so tough. Great player

    Oh man, I forgot all about Pushoff Hancock. That thing he did after every single whistle where he put his hands up in the air "what did I do". However, other than him and behanon I liked the rest of that uofl championship team.

    Also forgot on my florida likes list. Da meat hook or whatever he was called. What happened to that guy?

    It's too hard to try to remember all the one's I've hated and they're not worth my time, so I'll give a general list:

    1) White guy on L'ville who usually plays 5mpg but comes in and makes 5 threes to put the game away

    2) Arcidiacono. His antics in the game earlier this year really p****d me off

    3) Anybody in a G'town uniform

    4) Pitt guard who makes threes that he has no business even shooting

    5) Notre Dame big men who shoot 3's

    (apparently I have a thing against 3's being made)


    Like:

    1) Allen Iverson (exception to #3 above because I didn't watch him at G'town). He's one of my favorite NBA players all-time

    2) As you can tell from the 'hate' list, I have trouble thinking of specific players and their names. Mention some old Big East dudes who were chill, and I probably liked them.

    My guess is you would be talking about Kyle Kuric. A UofL reserve at the time who scored 22 points (9-11 shots with 4 three pointers, all in the 2nd half) against #1 Syracuse in the last UofL game ever played in Freedom Hall. That is one of my most memorable games of all time due to that surprise performance by Kyle Kuric.

    Indiana Fan

    Dislike:

    Trey Lyles-Benedict Arnold. Give me Indiana with Trey Lyles this year, and I'd be happy to match up with the kittens in the tournament.
    Everyone who has ever played for Bo Ryan - the rest of the B1G will back me up here. Thanks for making Basketball as ugly as it can be.
    Stephen Bardo- OK i remember hating that entire Illinois team, but Bardo is just so bad on the B1G network he has to be placed on here.
    Brian Cardinal- he was going bald in college. He was the scrappy asshole you just hate on the other team. #1 for my hate.
    Roosevelt Jones - How does half the shit he throws up go in? He's
    the awkward overweight kid on the playground that always throws up a
    mess... except Jones makes them.


    Like:


    Robbie Hummel- Great player, tons of respect for what he went
    through. It's hard for me to say, but Purdue might have won it all the
    first time he got hurt.
    Nerlens Noel
    - the team he was on was the biggest bunch of underachievers in a long time. He still played hard and passionate. What an athletic force. AD gets all the love, but this guy was fun to watch.
    MKG- He was such a difference maker in team basketball.
    Aaron Craft- Many hated him. I didn't. He played tremendously hard, and cared a ton for the game. He was scrappy but unlike Cardinal, he wasn't an asshole. OSU won a lot of games because of him.
    Victor Oladipo -
    sorry for cheating. I loved him. My favorite Hoosier of all time. Zeke, Alford, Cheney, Yogi are on that list from my lifetime, but I loved VO from the moment I saw him play in the Vegas tournament his freshman year. He was so raw, but was like a newly freed caged animal out there. Watching him progress to the moment CTC put him at the point against Purdue his sophomore year was nerve-racking, but wow when he clicked it was basketball heaven.



    Edit: My reading comprehension is not at it's best today, missed the part about since 2000. Friday....

    I don't like Kyle Macy. It's not a Kentucky/Louisville thing either. I've met him in person. He came across as arrogant and conceited because of who he was. Superiority complex. Me being a Louisville fan never came up, so I guess he's that way with everyone.

    As far as I'm concerned we don't have a rival school.

    Top 5 players that I don't (didn't) enjoy going up against

    1. Georges Niang (loved him early enough to know)
    2. Marcus Smart (because he was that good)
    3. Jacob Pullen (because he helped the purple believe)
    4. Cameron Ridley (because he's girthy ... *shudders*)
    5. Michael Beasley (what.a.waste.of.talent)

    5 other cbb players that I loved watching

    I can see why a Louisville fan would like Saul, because UK fans couldn't stand him. [​IMG]

    OK, I'll play

    Liked:
    Russ Smith (Never met a shot he didn't like but he made a ton of them, undersized, gutsy player)
    DIeng (dependable, workmanlike, and a great defender)
    Pervis Ellison (great nickname, great player)
    Siva (huge heart, really likable guy)
    Wheat (great player for Crum)

    That would be a hell of a team.

    DIsliked:
    Garcia (#1 most disliked)
    Samaki Walker (seemed like a guy that never worked hard enough to be as good as he could have been)
    Hancock (way too much flopping)
    T. Williams (a close #2 to Garcia)
    Sosa (this one is probably more because UL fans thought he was better than he was than anything to do with Siva himself)

    Sorry I know I went back further than 2000. Looking over other peoples' lists I was surprised to see Josh Harrelson and Anthony Davis on some hated listed. Not at all surprised to see Chapman on there though, I think most UK fans hate him too. Not surprised to see Cousins either, I imagine most opponents hated him. Surprised not to see Magloire's name on more lists, he was Boogie before Boogie.

    UNC,

    Liked - Antawn Jamison and that is about it.

    Hated - I can't remember all the other players to play for them while I have followed college hoops but those are the ones I disliked.

    I agree. I didn't really mean hate. Just dislike, or not care for
