Saw this on Twitter.  Thought it was pretty good.  I'm split on never passes guy and body odor guy.

Any other ones they missed?

"complains about fouls all the time" guy
Same thing but the guy that yells "and one" every single time he is in the paint.

I woulda hit that shot, but my wrist…

Internet message board guy.  Thinks he knows how to play because he watches all the videos and comments on every player’s ability, but man does he suck.

Couple of personal pet peeves-

guy who can't make a move without traveling
guy who screams at shooters to distract them
guy who just can't keep the score right and is always arguing about it

How do people feel about "always takes charges" guy?  (Not that he's asking for a foul called on the ball-handler, he just doesn't give up position, and it p---es people off when they penetrate and hit a brick wall that refuses to move.)

Love that guy! And serious defense guy! And Amazing gear terrible mediocre ability guy!

Guy who can’t shoot, but launches 3s all game is the worst. Like, I can shoot 3s, but choose to play a more varied game. This guy sucks at everything and just chooses to be a ball-hog, making my best contribution offensive rebounding. It just totally ruins any game and is super-prevalent, especially in the 3-ball era
