Some NBA players are lovable, while other NBA players are totally hateable. Here they are.

Putting Jimmy Butler in a Muay Thai clinch? Someone needs to tell Mr. Hilario that this is the NBA, not the UFC.

14. Brandon Jennings

Jennings allowed his early success to get to his head. In spite of now being a below-average player, he chucks up brick after brick. You can't let that sort of selfishness slide.

13. Gordon Hayward

There's just something about this guy that rubs people the wrong way. It's no wonder former NBA player Delonte West pushed his finger into Hayward's ear.

12. Amare Stoudemire

They say that injuries have plagued Stoudemire's time in New York. There are some who think, though, that he got paid and got lazy.

11. Carlos Boozer

"Ahhhhh!" That's all you hear out of Carlos Boozer on the basketball floor. For that reason alone, he deserves to be vilified.

10. Chris Bosh

One obvious reason to hate Chris Bosh is because he joined forces with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Another would be his dinosaur-like facial expressions.

Ray Allen is shameless. Once the franchise in both Milwaukee and Seattle, he ganged up on his foes while in Boston and then stabbed his Celtics boys in the back by going to Miami. Now he seems to be following around LeBron James wherever he goes.

8. Russell Westbrook

Westbrook appears to have been the one to start this ridiculous trend of NBA players dressing up like Steve Urkel. Either way, as the leader of this terrible movement, Westbrook deserves all the hate you can muster.

7. Carmelo Anthony

He waited for Kevin Garnett at the bus following a game. Anthony never confirmed what was said, though. He also made it seem like he might leave New York for greener pastures but just wasted all these other teams' time. He only cares about himself and his sorry image.

6. Deron Williams

Coach killer! Lionel Hollins better watch his back, because Deron Williams will be waiting with a sharp knife.

5. Dwight Howard

Howard doesn't have a clue about the meaning of the word "loyalty". When does he start throwing Kevin McHale under the bus and demanding a trade out of Houston?

4. Jeremy Lin

For whatever reason, when you look up the word "overrated" in the dictionary, you see a picture of Jeremy Lin. Even though he's proven to be, at best, a somewhat decent backup, he talks like he's a superstar. Someone needs to take away his endorsements and get that ridiculous face off the TV screen.

3. Blake Griffin

Griffin was okay at first with his flashy dunks, but all these corny-as-heck Kia commercials have made Griffin way too commercial. It's hard not to hate a kid like that.

2. Nick Young

It's not even because he's dating the ever-annoying Iggy Azalea. Wait, it is because he's dating her.

Love seemed to be a good guy until he whined and moaned during the 2012 Summer Olympics about the Timberwolves not getting him to the playoffs. Love turned his back on Minnesota and now is the epitome of a frontrunner. You should be rooting for him to fail.
