Most Passionate NBA Players of All Time
The Top Ten
You can rest assured that almost everyone outside of Boston hates Kevin Garnett. Right or wrong, they hate the antics, the yelling, the trash talking and the pounding of the chest like he's been cast in an R. Kelly video.
Still, you can't find a soul who doubts his work ethic and his unwavering passion for the game. It takes a passionate player to bust his behind, night in and night out
You don't have to like Bryant, but you have to respect his passion for the game and his will to win. He's never satisfied and he's always looking to get better.
He's a beast
I love to watch him play
His character on and off the court have been a shining example to the rest of the Suns in how they should conduct themselves.
He tries his best to win every game - 2storm
LeBron wants to win. When he plays you can the burning fire in his eyes. He goes out on the court and gives it his all every game, every play, every day. He's amazing! #Bronnie
Just watch him in his eyes - 2storm
The man hates losing
I love how Serge Ibaka is on this but nobody put MJ. His will to win is one of the greatest in any sport
MJ and Kobe are hands down the most passionate men to ever pick up a basketball. Lebron James, Blake Griffin above him?! SMH
Jerry West was a player who lived and breathed basketball. He dove after every loose ball, played through multiple injuries and repeatedly drove into the paint in the super-physical '60s. If that's not passionate basketball, I don't know what is. - bishop.moore07
There is nobody in today's NBA who can equal his passion for the game.
The beast jerry west is a dominate shooter (years ago)
He "IS" the NBA logo for gosh sakes!
By far the most ruthless player in the NBA today. Applauded by many of the greats in this category, such as Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, for his ferocity and tenacity. This walking triple-double machine is a force to be reckoned with.
From bench guy to vital part of the team has happened quickly and it's been due to a combination of talent and his relentless passion to get better.
Luis Scola plays with a motor that just won't quit. His raw determination to be the best has come from the fact that he's never been able to just dominate his opponent.
This guy cried just for receiving the DPOY. Not even the MVP... The DPOY...
Dwyane Wade wants to win. There is no question of that. It takes a player passionate about success to give up the spotlight to a player that is better than him.
Just a guy who never gives up
He me get angry sometimes but that's passion
