5. Draymond Green, NBA
Draymond Green is one of the most athletically gifted players in the NBA at 6’5, 230 pounds. As much as that helps him succeed on the court, his expert trash-talking skills also give him a leg up over the competition. While his below-the-belt antics make him a frequent target for criticism, Green has no problem getting in the face of anyone, whether they’re players on the other team or a referee. Even though his powers were impervious to former Spurs star Tim Duncan, Green hasn’t found a situation yet where he won’t dish some trash talk.
The Warriors star got into it with LeBron James during the NBA Finals, and while that didn’t help Golden State win a championship this time around, he at least momentarily rattled “The King” during the series. Whether it always works or not, Green’s standing as a trash talker is not in question—in a poll of NBA coaches and players, Green came out on top as the best smack artist in basketball.
