Within any large collection of grown men there are bound to be some stinkers. Some guys smell more than others. That’s a fact of life. Whether it’s because of unfortunate genetic makeup or poor personal hygiene, not everyone is easy to stand within a few feet of.
With that in mind, there are a number of low post players in the NBA who are tough to bang bodies with. Sure, some players are difficult to defend or post up because they are good players, but others are effective because of their odiously offensive odor. If Amar’e Stoudemire is telling the truth, two such players are Ronny Turiaf and Boris Diaw.
“Confirmed. Confirmation, granted,” Stoudemire said during an appearance on the Dan LeBatard Show Tuesday when asked if rumors of Turiaf smelling are true.
Amar’e was then asked who was the second-worst smelling guy in the league. “I dunno, man. I try not to get close to these guys. But I think Boris Diaw might be a close second. 1A and 1B.”
There you have it. Diaw may ride a Segway which cuts down on physical stress, but it apparently does not help with his odor problem. If anyone knows anything about cleanliness, it would probably be a fashion queen king like Stoudemire, so we’ll take his word for it.
