6. Miles Plumlee

Duke University basketball is known to foster some of the hatable players in all of athletics. Typically, the most punchable faces have been arrogant white guards such as Steve Wojciechowski, JJ Reddick, and most recently Grayson Allen, but they have arrogant white forwards in their history like Christian Laettner to hate as well.

But there is a low-key brand of Duke players that, while aren’t as hatable as the aforementioned guys, are still super annoying. They are arrogant white centers, the most notable of which are the Plumlees.

From 2008 to 2016, three different Plumlee brothers played center for Duke and all three got time in the NBA. The youngest and least-talented brother, Marshall, only lasted two seasons in the NBA, and surprisingly it was not with the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns actually signed the second-best (second-worst?) Plumlee brother, Miles Plumlee, for a season and a half from 2013-2015. Since then, he has bounced around the league and has a career average of 4.9 points and 4.5 rebounds.

The middle brother, Mason Plumlee turned out to be the best of the bunch and in enjoying a decent career with the Denver Nuggets.
