WHO IS THE DIRTIEST PLAYER IN THE NBA?

Reggie Evans, Raptors F 21%

Ron Artest, Lakers F 13%

Andres Nocioni, Kings F 6%

Anderson Varejao, Cavs C 5%

Kobe Bryant, Lakers G 4%

FAST FACTS

Only Varejao (85th, 5.2 fouls) and Nocioni (89th, 5.1) are among the top 100 in fouls per 48 minutes. Evans has been injured and doesn't have enough playing time to qualify.... Three of the top six vote-getters, including Hawks center Zaza Pachulia (4%), have played internationally.... The NBA's leading fouler, Wizards forward-center Fabricio Oberto (9.1 per 48 minutes), received zero votes.

Based on a survey of 173 NBA players

Reggie Evans = :box:

Doug Smith explains how an SI vote like this is compiled:


But I’m going to fill you in on a little bit of stuff about that poll, which is the same one that said Sam Mitchell was the worst coach in the NBA a few years back, right before he got better players and was coach of the year, if I recall.

Anyway, here’s the deal (and I know this because I do some stringing work for SI every now and then and have done the polling that provides the answers).

Here’s how it works some times, and there are usually 12 or 15 questions we’re supposed to ask as many players as we can.

We ask things like, who’s the dirtiest player in the league and get blank stares.

We say, “well, Reggie Evans is getting some love from the other guys’ and the fellow says, “yeah, okay, put him down.”

Voila. Two votes for Reggie.

Seriously, it’s all in fun but it’s hardly serious. Or scientific.

I wonder where Bruce Bowen would have ranked in that list if he was still playing. I always find it interesting to hear which players the players think are dirty. I remember the Lambere/Rodman/Salley front court on the Pistons used to be called dirty, but it always seemed to me like they just worked hard. Bowen, I've seen take some cheap shots when he was frustrated, but for the most part he always seemed to play a clean, hard defensive game. I'd much rather read what the players say than look at the numbers.

Bowen would surely be 1st on that list if he was still in the league.

One of the dirtiest plays i've ever seen. And if it did hit, I'm sure a lot of people would mention it as well.

bowen was a little b i tch who would commonly stick his feet out under an opponent when they are taking a jump shot. nothing is gonna piss a player off then messing with their livelihood. you can push and shove down low, hand check or set hard picks, but when you start messing with someones ankles and knees, thats crossing the line.

Apparently he's even willing to "warm up" the guy that he wants to bang.

I guess we now know why he is such a terrible scorer. Hard to shoot a basketball when your hands are coated in nut butter.

Of course Andres Nocioni is a dirty player, he looks like a porpous whale, plays like a stray, and smells like a flea infested mut!

Scalabrine may be the only dude whiter than Micheal Jackson.
