His size was intimidating
No, he is going to be remembered because he is one of the biggest D-bags in the game.His most notable moment came when he saw that he wasn't going to get a rebound over Chris Kaman, so he reached between his legs and tugged on Kaman's boys.
There are endless stories of Payton being one of the biggest trash-talkers in the league.This is the man that once choked his coach because he told him to "put a little mustard" on a pass.Yeah, it's safe to say that you were never sure what this guy was going to do.Usually, it is the defensive monsters that are the intimidating players, and it's quite hard to be an intimidating player using only an offensive game, but it is possible.Some qualities that make a player intimidating include that physical presence that we've already talked about, unpredictability, size, shot-blocking, confidence, meanness, ability to take over a game, utter dominance and, most importantly, insanity. You could be a decent player, but if you're legitimately insane, then it gives you another dimension.I would say that's enough to say that a single player is crazy enough to make the guy defending him wonder every now and then what he might do to him if he gets into "fan punching" mode again.
Intimidating Quality: Size, physicality Look at Bob Lanier as an old man.
Intimidation plays a big role in basketball, and it's a very overlooked quality in the NBA, so I took a look and found the most intimidating players in league history.
Intimidating Quality: Insanity, meanness Reggie Evans isn't a guy that is going to be remembered for his ability to play basketball well, although he can rebound as well as any other big guy in the game.
I was completely convinced that, in a pinch, he would not hesitate to knock Le Bron out of the way, look at him and say, "I got this."When he didn't, I was shocked.
If they make it to the finals again and the Heat are showing the same signs of collapsing, I would go as far as to place a bet in Vegas that Miami would come back and win, and Wade would win the finals MVP.
He seems unsure of himself in the clutch, shown by his performance in the NBA Finals near the end of games.
