Kenyon Martin might've been the dirtiest player to play the game

I watched a video of his son dunking on YouTube [he can jump outta the gym] which somehow led me to "Kenyon Martin fights," and I gotta say Kenyon was an absolutely dirty player. I mean, I knew he was dirty, but not this dirty. I'm actually surprised he wasn't banned for life, at some point.

Too many clips to post, but I'll list a few to shed some light:
1) Kenyon fights Corey Maggette https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miDiXVe3ZIw
2) Flagrant foul on Garnett https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uj8o4EnqFIg
3) Look how he manhandles Goran Dragic, too funny https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cuMCzfkToA
4) Flagrant foul on Dirk Nowitzki https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dC-pzv34c50
5) Flagrant foul on Trevor Ariza https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jK_zT8gmdr8
6) Flagrant foul on Mutombo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3cNFLf25ts
7) Flagrant foul on Karl Malone https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcV4gUiOiaw
8) Flagrant foul on Ray Allen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJmxfIMeEac
9) Kenyon Martin reveals the time he knocked Nene out with a ‘one-hitter-quitter’ http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/us-sp ... 2c8d271dfe


Don't get me wrong: I came up with the 90s Knicks, I love the grit. But there's a huge difference between Charles Oakley, Xavier McDaniel and Kenyon Martin.
The Porzingis blessing is real.

The Garnett, Dirk, Mutumbo and Allen plays had a little something extra on them for sure but IMO they're more chippy than dirty. The Malone and Ariza plays were the dirtiest, those looked really malicious. I always remember him being a tough bastard but had forgotten about plays like those.

that was pretty clear even in ncaa when he played for cincinnati, a lot of elbows and shoving, trash talking for a guy with so much more talent than his peers. he was explosive, strong and aggressive, kept at it in the pro game. he owes a ton to jason kidd for getting him to focus on the game, be a better player.
