‘Dirtiest’ Players: Reggie Evans, Ron Artest, …

by March 03, 2010

Reggie and Ron-Ron headline the list (from a poll conducted by SI). Who else would you include on there?: “They just can’t stop talking about the defense of first-year Laker Ron Artest. ‘Ron Artest has ways of getting under your chin — and your skin,’ was the way Indiana Pacers coach Jim O’Brien described the former Pacer named this week in a Sports Illustrated poll of players as second-dirtiest in the league. He’s well behind Toronto’s Reggie Evans, on top with 21 percent of the vote to Artest’s 13. But interestingly, the Lakers have two of the top five with Kobe Bryant earning the fifth spot with 4 percent of the vote.”
