Over the years, there have been several villains in movies. Superman had Lex Luthor, Batman had the Joker and Luke Skywalker had Darth Vader. Anyone who knows me can tell you who is my
all-time villain. That would be Wesley Snipes' character Nino Brown in the best movie ever, New Jack City.
I thought about this topic while listening to an ESPN sports radio show discussing something similar this past weekend. Just like in every action movie, there is a villain that the audience is supposed to go against or strangely root for.
Basketball has their fair share of villains. Dennis Rodman is the first one that comes to mind. He was an original Bad Boy for the Detroit Piston championship teams. Dennis and his teammates believed it was their duty to beat the crap out of Michael and Scottie any chance they could.
Football has a couple villains as well. One of the most recent inductees to the villain fraternity would be Greg Williams, GODFATHER of the BOUNTY. He turned a mediocre New Orleans Saints team to a championship defense just by giving the team an incentive (BOUNTY) to do what they were already going to do.
Villains in the sports world can be players, coaches or even owners. Let me know who are some people you think are the villains of their sport and what they did to give themselves the VILLAIN title.
