NBA Players Poll: Reggie Evans is the Dirtiest Player

According the always fun annual poll of NBA players from SI (118 of them took part in the questionnaire this season), Reggie Evans is considered the dirtiest player in the L: “Who is the dirtiest player in the NBA? Reggie Evans, Clippers PF 37%, Kevin Garnett, Celtics PF 9%, Metta World Peace, Lakers SF 9%, Jeff Foster 5%, Chris Paul, Clippers PG 4% [...] Foster retired on March 21…. Bobcats SG Gerald Henderson also received 4% of the vote…. The poll was completed before World Peace went all Ron Artest on Thunder G James Harden on Sunday, concussing Harden with a celebratory elbow and earning himself an ejection and probable suspension…. Kings C DeMarcus Cousins leads the NBA with 249 personal fouls but did not receive a single mention. Meanwhile, Evans is tied for 127th in the league with 117 PFs…. In a separate poll of NBAers, the trio of Evans, Garnett and World Peace (tied with Sasha Vujacic, who now plays in Turkey) were deemed the league’s most ‘annoying’ players.”

    “concussing Harden with a celebratory elbow” . . . nothing celebratory about that elbow.

    The way SLAM commenters talk about him, I would have thought KG would lead by a landslide, oh yeah, a lot of yall don’t know what you’re talking about. Surprised to see Gerald Hendersons name up there, but I don’t see a lot of Bobcats games so I wouldn’t know what he does.

    Should make a Bruce Bowen Award.

    Poor Reggie. Once you grab a guy’s balls, you get branded for life.

  • Mike Mihalow

    I can see Evans, Garnett, Artest, and Chris Paul, but Jeff Foster? When was the last time he even played?

  • TreShiQ

    I’m suprised the rest of the League even knows who reggie Evans is.

  • LA Huey

    Jeff Foster retired after the players were polled. If you saw Bulls-Pacers in the playoffs last year, you know how dirty that guy can be.

  • tomtom

    I’m surprise Kobe didn’t make the list tbh..


    Funny. Interesting thing Chris Paul is #5 with 4%… sure he’s solid but I wouldn’t have guessed is considered dirty.

    is flopping considered dirty?

  • GanjahLuv

    Pauls nut shot on Julius Hodge will forever have him on list like these. PUnk biaaatch….

  • LA Huey

    Watch CP3 off the ball, guys. Dude, elbows and grabs ALOT. Reminds a bit of Stockton.

  • T-Money

    jeff foster was the king of the two hand shove in the back before grabbing an o board.

    I think this is the second or third year Reggie Evans has “won” this poll.

  • Waggle

    Two clippers on that list? Shocking.

  • http://www.twitter.com/_dfrance dfrance21

    Co-Sign LA Huey, I’m actually surprised CP3 didn’t get more votes.

  • Michelle

    Josh McRoberts not in the top thats suprising

  • roger

    michelle…..he doesnt play enuff to be on any list

  • Rainman

    I dont fancy myself Chris Kaman’s testies…but i approve this message.

    Weggie is an old time Green and Gold favorite of mine. He is annoying as hell to play against though. Danny Fortson is my favorite Sonic of all time so I’m kinda biased to dirty players on “my” teams.

    henderson, new nickname. sneaky dirty

  • robb

    celebratory elbow? lol

  • http://www.soundcloud.com/tray-5 T-Ray

    CP3 should be higher considering he’s hit 2 guys in the sack.

  • bike

    Shout out to danny fortson, miss that dude. What did gerald henderson do?

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Jeff Foster was the last man standing in Malice at the Palace… Sad he retired.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Slick Ric

    @Mike Mihalow, If you watched the Bulls vs. Pacers series last season, you would see why he was voted on.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    tbh i wasn’t even aware of his retirement… Or maybe I forgot. BTW what year did Austin Croshere retire? Those Pacer OGs get me all nostalgic.

  • vtrobot

    @ LakeShow: You beat me to the Danny Fortson mention. Dude was filthy. Zaza is another current player who plays a pretty physical game that seems to annoy people quite regularly.

  • Rainman

    Zaza got Zydrunas Ilgauskas of all people to throw a ball at him in frustration lol

  • Fat Lever

    bike wins this round. HAHAHAHAHA!

    Danny wasn’t even ‘dirty’. He in plain view and in obvious fashion would pull something highly illegal. Normally cats try and keep it on the D.L. if they are going to pull some ISH. Danny? Nawwwh. He would just shove you out of his way right in front of the ref. LOVED that dude. “Baddest man in pig tails!” Just got shivers. Sonic’s fans would talk sh*t to me as I would come in the Key donning that Jersey. Didn’t give a f*ck though, that dude was baddddassss!

  • Dungeon Family

    Well He is a NUTTY Player on the Court

    Danny Fortson and Jason Terry are my favorite college players of all-time
