guts-someone who never gives up even when your down 50 with 2 min left,
someone who spits in the face of impossibility and never gives less than 110 percent someone who can inspire his team with words and actions a player where when hes on your team
you feel like you've won already

First one that comes to mind is Garnett.

prior to last year it had to be wade... but the arguement could probably be made for Kobe or Gilbert too...

nevermind... I read it wrong

actual answer: tough question... but on the heat the heart, soul, and guts comes from Udonis Haslem, IMO...

Are you sure you want to start this thread? If this just turns into a Kobe vs. everyone else thread, it will get closed.

it doesnt have to be a star player
talent can only get you half way anyway where talking bout guts here players who suceed without talent defy the odds

not if people actually think. Its a valid question b/c most of the time it isntthe superstar that gives it 110% everytime... but I am sure you are right and the next 30 posters will be lakers fans saying kobe...

but that would be wrong since Kobe would be on the bench down 50 ith 2 minutes to play...

well he has to share the wealth with Carmelo Anthony...

If AI was still in philly, I swear to God he'd be putting up those same old numbers

People may laugh....but Ronnie Price. He plays hard no matter what the score is...and I have examples.

I'd say players like Raja Bell and Jamario Moon, they werent drafted, and they had to play in different leagues, and they had to fight to get to where they are now.

IMO those type of players appreciate what they have more, and play with a different intensity.

Deron Williams for sure. His tattoos on his triceps... "Not Guts, No Glory"
Look at what he's done in the post season. He played nearly 45 minutes every game cause the Jazz haven't had a consistent PG. last season.

DERON WILLIAMS

Ha, I was going to say Ronnie Price. And I was going to use the second Youtube video as an example. Seriously though, that dude would risk his life to make a good play and he doesn't yell at the refs after he gets the ball stolen or gets blocked. If anything he's the first person back.

I wouldn't say it was Kobe by any means.

If I had to give an answer I would say Tim Duncan or Deron Williams or even CP3.

no specific order:

1)Gary Payton in his prime.

2)More for heart then leadership but
as far as hustle n passion I would say
Ronny Turiaf.

3)Derrick Fisher

4)Sir Charles

5)Dennis Rodman

6)Reggie Miller

ok I swear I'll stop now!

Allen Iverson.
Philly days... as well as in Denver, people are ridiculous when he say he lost it. Other players are... Deron Williams, KG, Nash.

Iverson
McGrady, Hill and Wade you have to respect players that have so much will to play the game despite all their health problems.

Allen Iverson for sure. He gives his all and he being that he's so small, he gets hurt so much but gets right back up to play harder.

Yes.

KG does have passion for the game, but him and Dwyane Wade ruined their reputation when they "tanked it" at the end of their horrible seasons.

AI has never "given" up... Even said he didn't give up in the playoffs despite him being on the bench because of Karl... He didn't agree with Melo's assumption, as being stated after the press-conference.

Melo did, however.

I think T-Mac has the most guts in the whole game. Didn't he score like 10 points in the last 30 secs of a game once?

Exactly. T-Mac is the most gutsy player in the game. He just can't catch a break in the playoffs.
