    NBA Who are your favorite non-Thunder players?

    Why? (For those of you who are fans of another team, choose someone who is not on your team).

    My favorite player is Kevin Love (cause he's white) because of his ability to rebound and because he'll score from anywhere...and as much as I hate playing him, it's the same reason I like Zach Randolph.

    I'm a fan of Derrick Rose because he's Derrick Rose. He reminds me a lot of Durant in terms of his demeanor which is nice.

    Blake because he's a Sooner

    Damian Lillard because he dropped all the way to 6th, and has been the best Rookie from day one. Reminds me of Russell a little bit.

    Blake Griffin
    Derrick Rose
    Tim Duncan

    In a year or two... James Harden. I need more time in my mind to separate him from the Thunder.

    Right now I would say probably Blake, but I have always like David West from watching him at Xavier winning POY, then with the Hornets in OKC.

    Dear God. I didn't think anyone outside of SA liked Duncan. No offense, he is a great player, just always has gotten under my skin for some reason.

    Blake is my favorite NBA player despite not playing on my favorite team(duh the Thunder) which is the first time in my life that I have a favorite player that is not also on my fav team in any sport ... Kinda odd actually

    Obviously Dirk as when the Thunder were still the Supersonics the Mavs were my team and Dirk is such a unique type of player he is just fun to watch and easy to root for IMO

    I like David West because he is a freaking legit badass and he always seems to put up numbers w/o making a spectacle of himself.

    Do not tell Suncoast but I pretty much always root for Duncan for all the obvious reasons. Unfortunately I hate Parker and Ginobli which is why I am not a Spurs fan... I liked Robinson fwiw.

    Oh and finally do not tell any of my fellow Thunder fans but I have always found myself, against my better judgement, rooting for Kobe Bean Bryant I love his attitude(I know but it actually works for Kobe unlike most athletes who I hate when they try and act better than everyone else hence my pure hatred for Le****)

    Oh and Chris Paul gets an honorable mention.


    So anyways my list is as follows in order:

    1. Blake
    2. Dirk
    t3. Kobe
    t3. Timmah
    5. David West
    6. CP3

    Mike Miller.

    Allows me to dominate NBA2K games, and I saw him with Battier at a bar in Memphis a couple months ago and he was a pretty cool guy.

    Derrick Rose - I love his game. His ability to finish is so much fun to watch.

    Blake Griffin - Pretty much for the same reasons as D.Rose, but also add that he's a Sooner, obviously.

    Jeremy Lin - I think he's marginally talented, but I really like how he handled himself during the whole Linsanity thing. Can't fault him for ESPN being the vultures that they are.

    Paul Pierce - He stuck with the Cs even when they were garbage, and got rewarded eventually with a ring. You don't see loyalty to a team like that much anymore.

    Those are the ones off the top of my head.

    Love watching KD even though he absolutely owns my Lakers. Love the way he approaches the game. Love watching Dirk. Dude is a technician at 7-0 tall. I love the guys who go to work every night, and seem to understand it is their job. KG comes to mind, Tony Allen, & Derrick Rose all seem to respect their opportunities, and they take the game seriously. That is why I'm glad Kobe is a Laker...

    Not crazy about the Heat, but love watching LeBron simply because he is greatness.

    Actually I like watching Wade - when healthy. The things he does at what, 6'3", are amazing.

    I like Wade.

    Agree with those that said Billups and Nowitzki. I don't know if I really like Marc Gasol or if that simply because he's not Pau that he's likable.

    Seeing some people mention CP3. I love his game, but I just can't get over what a punk he seems to be on the court. Flopping, crying to refs about fouls, yapping at guys he has no business yapping at. He's the guy in the pickup game you know is going to get his ass whipped for the way he acts. It's too bad really.

    But I'd love to have him as my PG.

    I always liked watching the PGs because I used to play that position as a short white guy... so I really like watching Chris Paul and Steve Nash. Some of these younger ones are good too, but I love seeing the difficult passes that those guys make look easy and effortless.

    I also like Kyrie, and Harden, even though I still may be a little butt hurt about him leaving.

    Jason Kidd, and I like watching Kobe play... reminds me of Jordan. But I still like seeing the Lakers lose.

    I think I'll be able to like Harden again after this year is over. I don't dislike him, but I try to ignore him for the most part.

    Kyrie is a bad ass if for nothing else than Uncle Drew.

    What bar? Shane is nice. He and I used to get ****ed up on a regular basis. ( ok honestly I ran into him at a local bar first time he was a Grizz) Nice to hear Miller is a good guy.

    Mike Conley
    Tony Allen
    Marc Gasol
    ZBO
    Rudy Gay (some of the time)

    Blake Griffin

    I used to like Ray Allen until he signed up with the South Beach butt club.
    THAT actually makes me like KG for the way he dissed Ray when they played earlier this season

    My two favorites all time. Loved watching both of those guys when I was a kid.

    Current non Thunder players would be KG, Blake Show, and Rubio.

    I did... but I never knew he had 30 pts in an NBA game. I always hated that and1 mixtape BS, but he was actually a really good one and got into the league. I do remember some of his first games he kept getting called for carrying, traveling, etc. because he was so used to that street ball shit.

    I want to see Kyrie Irving play a game with his Uncle Drew face on. That would be fun to watch.

    Used to be CP3, but he whines so much I'm kind of over him
    Kevin Love is a solid choice
    Kyrie is amazing. I feel bad for the kid having to play in CLE.
