I was naming players that I can't stand. Even have 100% pure sports hate for.
And AI is just about at the top of that list. I can't stand him so much that even
if he won us a ring I'm not sure I could watch.
Why the hate?
At 17 he was charged for hitting a woman in the head with a chair in a bowling alley fight. Classy
Didn't like his coach Chris Ford. So he missed practice, missed games for being "sick" without telling Ford and refused to come off the bench and wouldn't play.
He wanted to get into a VIP room at a club but someone was in there. So his bodyguard beat the ever loving stuffing out of the man. Sure, AI didn't do it himself. But he didn't stop his guy from doing it.
He was arrested for drugs and carrying a concealed weapon.
And lets not forget about "practice." If you can't work with your team and like Bird, Magic and MJ did even if you really don't need the practice yourself then you'll never be a champion. Oh, that's right....... he never was!
As great as AI was at putting a ball in a basket, as a person he was a scum bag from what I could see. And I'm not one to look past what people do off the court and like them just because they're good at basketball. Sure, I could find something bad about anyone including myself if I looked long and hard enough. But you don't have to look hard at all to see the problems with AI. He's known as a cancer for a reason. And current NBA teams don't want him for a reason too.
