The NBA's Most Hated, basketball's chemistry majors

The NBA's Most Hated, basketball's chemistry majors

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - April 28, 2020 - 1:05:38

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina use Michael Jordan's intense hatred of Isiah Thomas and the Detroit Pistons as a jumping off point to discuss the most reviled people in NBA history. Which former players were universally despised? Are owners easier to hate than players? Which attributes -- laziness, selfishness, lack of integrity -- wind up drawing the most ire? And which players did Ben and Michael personally hate the most? From there, they shift gears to Michael's recent feature on chemistry in the NBA. Which teams are best handling the rise in player movement? In five or 10 years, will superstar free agents be lured with an offer of naming their own GM and coach in a package deal?
