someone said tim duncan is the most professional. if we are talking about professional meaning being a class act i don't think he should be included.

he comes across as pretty arrogant at times when he's talking to the press.

Racist, ignorant, etc. No thank you for your "contribution" to the board.

I always thought Zydrunas Ilgauskas to be one of the more "professional players." Quiet leader, reliable, and doesn't make excuses.

He has overcome constant pain in his feet, has had to deal with insomnia, and had to deal with the trauma of his wife giving birth to stillborn twins. Still goes out there and performs, though. You never hear anything bad about about him, and he never makes a food out of himself on/off the court.

Ray Allen is definitely a class act. So is Deke.

Just do what you are supposed to do when you're supposed to do it.


Sheeeeeeiiiiiiittttttttt, if I was a role player that had no skills but still got paid in 7 figures, I would act like a professional too.

I'm gonna have to blast you on some of these. No way Brown belongs there, he flipped over Charlie Ward in the '97 playoffs. Kidd was unprofessional when he hit his wife in 2001. Boozer was extremely unprofessional in th way he left Cleveland. Sam Cassell is unprofessional in the skirmishes he has gotten into during his tenure. And Antonio McDyess has done some foolish things, and was known to have a temper early in his career.

I agree with Billups and Grant Hill though.

How can anyone have Kobe Bryant on there list after he publicly called out managment and teammates this summer. Not really professional at all.

I say Shane Battier. 4 Years at Duke under coach K tought him how to hold himself and respect the game and everyone involved in it.
