CSNNE is running down the biggest villains in Boston sports and a GREAT place to start is with Kobe Bryant. That video nicely runs down a bunch of the reasons why we hate him.
And then there is LeBron James.
Part of that stems more from the fact that James, more than any other player, stands in the way of Celtics Nation hanging up Banner 18.
He is the one individual, freakish force of nature that can be unstoppable even on an off day.
James is that good.
And when he decided to basically try and win a title with a formula similar to Boston's Big Three of 2008 that only fanned the flames of disdain for him in these parts.
Right now, I think these are the two biggest villains playing in the NBA as far as Boston is concerned. Sure, we hate Anderson Varejao or Joakim Noah… but that's a little different. LeBron and Kobe… they're at another level.
