Since sometimes this is on the Nhl board, I'd figure I'd give it a go with the Nba. Again, I really don't have a reason for liking or disliking these players.

Like: Calderon
Al Jefferson

Dislike: Curry
Ridnour

I don't like 'Melo or Lebron, but couldn't really articulate a sound argument as to why. I used to dislike Reggie Miller for no real reason too. There are other guys I dislike, but for reasons I can fairly easily identify.

Players I like for more reason? That's a more difficult question, as people usually have reasons for liking players. Rasheed Wallace, or Metta World Peace maybe?

Like NHL, I have reasons if I dislike a player. So, nobody.

However, I have no real reason, but I dislike the Atlanta Hawks.

I dunno. I don't care for Joakim Noah's hair/face.

I dislike Zach Randolph for being a dirty sob.

There's a lt of guys I like/dislike for no reason

But the only guys I can think of hating for no particular reason of the top my head is Blake Griffin. Just looking at him pisses me off

I also have no clue why but I have never liked Andre Miller. On the other hand, I've always liked John Salmons.

Chris Andersen... To me he just defines everything that isn‘t an NBA player. It‘s the mohawk and colorful tattoos. I feel like he should be best friends with Travis Barker or working with Kat Von D.

JJ Redick... The first time I ever watched an NCAA game, it was Duke playing. They quickly became my favourite team and since I have always been a 3-point shooter whenever I play in the community, I was instantly a fan of his. He‘s my favourite player in the NBA on my favourite team.

Dislike:
Dwight Howard... I‘ve never ever liked him. I found him trying to be a somewhat Shaq copycat.. The NBA already had a Superman Dwight, knock it off.

Lebron James... That hairline gives me nightmares. Good player though.

Jimmer... I hate the name. He was an above average NCAA player but I don‘t see him being anything of a NBA player.

I have an unhealthy man-crush on Daniel Gibson, even though he has absolutely sucked for us since, oh, 2007.

Dwight Howard. Don't know why but he always has this smirk on his face like everything is a joke for him. And he's supposedly one of the best centers in the game (he is really) but he can't shoot to save his life.
