I agree with a lot of that....but Tim Duncan is VERY much liked and hugely respected and I think Garnett is actually widely LIKED and not disliked.

Tony Parker could probably go on disliked.
Ray Allen is well liked along with Pierce and I'd add Wade to that despite the Miami stuff.
Noah of the Bulls is polarizing and can go on either list.
Shaq is pretty likeable but again can be polarizing to some extent.

Clearly Kobe and Lebron are the most Hated by far.

Durant most liked. Don't know about that.

Griffin is probably number 1 Liked (during this NBA season) for vast majority. Who didn't watch Clippers game only to see him dunk on people.

Garnett would never be liked. He easily tops my Hated list. Those killer elbows + he is just a dirty dirty player = #1 Hated.

Paul Pierce is more hated player for me. All the flopping he does is just terrible for the game.

Noah isn't popular enough to make either list... though I hated him in college. Too arrogant for my taste.

Liked:
1) Howard
2) JJ Redick


Hated:
1) KG - with them Killer Bows
2) Kobe - Over time, I gained more respect for him
3) Pierce - too much flopping
4) Manu - too much flopping
5) Melo
