La NBA if you try it the skill, spectacularity and talent of its playersbut every now and then (and more often lately) things go awry and its giant protagonists are involved in brawls in the middle of the game, driven by the stress and toughness of some fenders, can turn parquet in the closest thing to a pressing catch ring, with unsportsmanlike actions and in some cases even dirty, Shameful fights and fights.
At this point, the prestigious American digital publication Fadeaway.com has elaborated a ranking of who would be the 10 most dangerous players in the NBA if someone had to face them in a fight. Recently LeBron James He split the face (literally) with an elbow to Isaiah Stewart in a Lakers-Pistons. And the current MVP Nikola Jokic run over Markieff Morris, sparking widespread drama in the NBA.
According to this publication, these are the 10 NBA players that no one should mess with today, at the risk of being destroyed.
10. Udonis Haslem (Miami Heat)
The veteran player of 41 to it is not cut off when someone crosses the boundaries of sports. He is 2.03 m tall, weighs 107 kilos and is reputed to be one of the toughest players in the league. It has been a long time since he has been involved in any brawl, at his age he has earned everyone’s respect, but if someone misses it or is used with violence against him, I will find it face to face. He does not back down from anything or anyone.
9. Boban Marjanovic (Dallas Mavericks)
The giant of Mavericks it is one of the nicest and most sympathetic players in the NBA. He is continually teasing and loves to laugh … even at himself. Behind that body hides a small child, but no one should be confused with him. If he gets angry he could destroy literally anyone. He is 2.24 m tall and weighs 132 kilos and any ‘normal’ human being should avoid having altercations with him, because he could fly away if you put out your endless arms for a walk. The Serbian is a laughing and happy guy, but do not try to annoy him.
8. Marcus Morris (Clippers) y Markieff Morris (Heat)
As if from the movie ‘The twins hit twice’ it was, the Morris brothers are two tough guys no one should bother if you don’t want to risk your physical integrity, since in addition to being tough guys, they will defend each other if someone dares to mess with either of them, like good twins that they are. And you already know that two against one, and even more in the case of two such mastodons, they always have the upper hand.
Marcus Morris (2.00 m and 100 kilos) plays tough, speaks trash language to intimidate rivals and never backs down from anyone and nothing. For something the Clippers they renewed him for 64 million last year. And Markieff (Heat) is even bigger (2.06 m and 111 kilos) and, like his brothers, does not shy away from any physical confrontation, as he demonstrated in this season’s famous fight against the MVP Nikola Jokic.
7. Montrezl Harrell (Washington Wizards)
Montrezl Harrell is a big man of 2.01 m and 109 kilos, but he uses his physical strength as if measuring 2.20 m. The power-wing of the Wizards it is a force of nature every time he gets close to the basket and his permanent grin of seriousness and anger intimidates not a few rivals. Better not provoke him because stick his head on top of his opponent’s if you feel that you have been disrespected. He’s very muscular and he knows it. And it has very bad fleasbetter not provoke him
6. Draymond Green (Golden State Warriors)
Draymond is part of Golden State Warriors hard core. He is surrounded by good people like Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson, unable to kill a fly, and he counterpoints exercising tough guy, protecting the young core of the Warriors, marching NBA leaders (17-2). Green never takes a step back when there is a riff-raff that affects him or his companions. ‘Only’ measures 1.98 m and weighs 104 kilos, but he’s capable of taking on the bulkiest pvots in the League. A brown beast that no one wants to face in a face to face.
5. Robin Lopez (Orlando Magic)
With 2.13 m and 125 kilos of weightHe has an imposing physique that makes him grow when there are altercations. Even the toughest guys in the NBA shy away from brawls with him for fear of being scalded. He does not mind getting into fights, even if it is to defend his teammates and sAbe that due to its size, it almost always has the upper hand. Excellent rebounder, when fighting for a rebound he uses all his muscles and does not cut himself if he has to hit his rivals to achieve it. Its size and brute strength make it a terrifying enemy to face.
4. LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers)
It is no secret that ‘King’ James has a prodigious physique. With 2.06 m and 113 kilos, he could have played almost any professional sport that he had proposed, and do it to basketball, where he does not have to squeeze his physique, It has allowed him to extend his career and break many records. On the court he is unstoppable, and when he’s really angry he’s stronger, faster, and more explosive than almost all NBA players. Getting into a fight with him would be risky. Tell Isaiah Stewart, who ended up bleeding. There are those who believe that if he had dedicated himself to MMA (mixed martial arts), no one would have been able to knock him down.
3. Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets)
This season Nikola Jokic shook off another beast, Markieff Morris, throwing him to the ground with his shoulder. The Pvot of the Nuggets he measures 2.11 m and weighs 129 kilos And although it may appear white because of its chubby or ‘fofisano’ appearance, or because of its slowness of movement and its limited ability to jump, in his case, it is advisable not to trust appearances. If you decide to settle a matter with your own hands, it is better to withdraw, although he never usually seeks a quarrel.
Actually Jokic is ranked number three in this ranking by his burly brothers, Strahinja and Nemanja, two street thugs who adore physical altercations and defend their brother at all costs. Even Nikola himself has at times stated that he is afraid of them because of their temperament and aggressive character.. Markieff and Marcus Morris could have a problem if they harass Jokic and his brothers show up. It will be the NBA fight of the century.
2. Steven Adams (Memphis Grizzlies)
With almost 2.13 m tall and 116 kilos, Steven Adams is considered the strongest player in the NBA. Jimmy Butler said that running into Adams was like hitting a brick wall, because the New Zealand pvot of the Grizzlies it’s incredibly strong. It is pure muscle and has surprising ability for its size. And his permanent bad face on the court is intimidating, although outside of it he is extremely friendly and polite.
But there is no doubt that Steven Adams is the rockiest player in the NBA. Difficult to move him from his place or try to stop him on a physical level, which makes him a very effective pvot. It is unlikely that anyone in the NBA will have enough arrests to drive Adams off his feet and provoke a confrontation with him. There is no one crazy enough in the League for that. Or at least so far there hasn’t been.
1. James Johnson (Brooklyn Nets)
It is often said that mixed martial arts athletes are the most dangerous people in the world because they are literally trained to hurt opponents. Well how NBA player and karate black belt, no one in their right mind should mess with the power forward of the Nets. James Johnson He measures 2.01 m and weighs 109 kilos, which together with his knowledge of martial arts they make him a guy against whom his rivals will have no chance of winning in a fight.
Also on the court he has always shown signs of his combative character, not retreating before anyone and throwing himself at any ball like a man possessed even if it was not entirely within reach. Johnson He has the toughness gene well ingrained in his character. I tried the mixed martial arts and kickboxing and he himself has recognized that he does not rule out starting a career in UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship, the mixed martial arts championship) when he retires from the NBA. There he would have more opportunities to deploy all his brute strength. Let your rivals tremble.
