Playing basketball makes a person sweaty. Sometimes grossly sweaty. Like bring two shirts to the gym sweaty. Just sayin’.

And as we all know, when you sweat, you stink. Just ask Amar’e Stoudemire, who was recently asked (for some reason) who was the smelliest player in the NBA. His response, as transcribed by I Am a GM:

Dan Le Batard: Kevin Love told us that Ronny Turiaf smells worse than anyone in the NBA. Can you confirm?

Amar’e Stoudemire: Confirmed. Confirmation, granted.

Dan Le Batard: Your teammate is the worst smelling player in the NBA. Who is second?

Amar’e Stoudemire: I dunno, man. I try not to get too close to these guys. But I think Boris Diaw may be a close second. 1a and 1b.

Just so you know, apparently the French guys in the NBA smell terrible. Way to enforce stereotypes, Amar’e. Kind of harsh, but I played against Tony Parker’s brother in high school and he really did smell bad, so I see where he’s coming from. (Not saying all French people smell, but that it is very believable that maybe these specific French fellows smell. I don’t want to get any angry emails from beautiful smelling French folks, so take a chill pill.)

Nonetheless, it’s good to know who the real stinkers are in the league. I would have put money on Nick Collison, since he’s supposedly the sweatiest guy out there, but I guess he has that special non-stink sweat. It’s still a good idea to ask every player, just to make sure. Nice to see Dan Le Batard’s on it.
