When we think of tough athletes, thoughts immediately go to football or hockey players. The NBA has also had some tough guys over the years. Many of them would probably have been just as effective on the grate as they were on the hardwood.
Hall of Famer Charles Barkley recently fueled this list when he made disparaging comments about another HOF hooper during an interview.
“I don’t walk around and say I’m Billy Badass, But I can promise you one thing: I’m stronger than Scottie PippenBarkley said on ESPN Chicago.
“I’m not a fake tough guy, I’m not pretending to be a tough guy, but I’m stronger than Scottie Pippen.”
Listen to Chuck insults to Pippen. throw got me thinking about some of the biggest badasses getting their wills in an NBA court.
