My Top 10 Most Hated List

Sportsline recently put together an article based on a poll of Atheletes who America hates. I thought I would have some fun and put up my own personal list.
My top ten most hated list(in no particular order): Kobe Bryant, Terrell Owens, Ray Lewis, DeSean Jackson, Tony Romo, Donovan McNabb, Coach K(not even gonna attempt to spell that name), J.J. Redick, Christian Laettner, Steve Wojokowski.

Runner up goes to every white Duke player in school history(Hurley, Cherokee Parks, Josh McRoberts,Cris Collins, the brothers Plumlee, etc. etc.)

PS- Kurt Busch and Lance Armstrong shouldn't be on this list because driving a car and riding a bike on steroids are not sports!

Artest to Lakers Seems Like Deja Vu

Ron Artest to the Lakers is eerily similar to the Dennis Rodman to the Bulls deal in the mid nineties. 

Both are scrappy players who play great defense and rebound with authority.  Artest is coming to the Lakers at a similar point in Kobe's career as Rodman did in Jordan's.  In both situations Rodman/Artest would go to a situation where they could focus on what they do best as opposed to being forced to be offensive threats. 

They both also can get a break from public scrutiny because for once in their careers they are not the media focal point of their respective team.  Kobe will take the focus off of Artest in the same way that Jordan took the Heat off of Rodman.

I am not a Laker fan, but if Artest can do for the Lakers what Rodman did for the Bulls we may be witnessing the beginning of a new dynasty.  However, with many great players being added to many great teams this offseason, teams like the Celtics, Spurs, and Cavs should make repeating a very hard thing to do.

This should be a great year for NBA basketball!
