The NBA does not have as many fights or physical violence in the game these days as it did in the 90s but there’s still a fair share of “dirty plays” going down. What players are most known for trying to get the better of their opponents through malicious intent?
A panel of NBA players and coaches voted to name the top five dirtiest players in the league.
- Matthew Dellavedova
- Steven Adams
- Andrew Bogut
- Matt Barnes
- Serge Ibaka
Dellavedova earned the reputation of being a dirty player last postseason through a couple of incidents and is the only guard on the list. He earned almost twice as many votes than any of the other players on the list.
