Default Who has the poorest Basketball IQ in NBA?

I stopped watching NBA for like 7 years, and I'm just getting back into it this year, so I'm not knowledgeable about the league or anything, but these are the guys who I think are dumb, based on what I've seen so far:

JR. Smith
Allen Iverson
jordan farmar
Sasha "the machine" V.
Lamar Odom
Shannon Brown

Sasha is a smart guy. He knows how to piss people off. Its Jamario Moon if you ask me.

If you're judging based on basketball IQ I don't know how in the hell Iverson made your list. You don't win MVPs and scoring titles with a low basketball IQ. I disagree with Farmar and Odom too.

In terms of basketball IQ I've always thought Tyrus Thomas was an idiot. He and Stromile Swift. Freakazoid athletes that are going to be career underachievers just because they have nothing upstairs.

Gerald Green.

Why are so many Lakers on the list. Best team in the west, and a handful of rotation guys are apparently clueless....come on.

that has more to do with the recovery process than a lack of basketball IQ, IMO. I don't think you LOSE ball IQ.

It depends on how you define "Basketball IQ" but to me it's the instinct of a player to react in the most appropriate manner in an unexpected situation on the court. J.R Smith and Allen Iverson do not have low Basketball IQ, they just have low overall intelligence (a.k.a dumb). Usually low Basketball IQ guys are those who have freakish athletic ability but do not fully know how to utilize it to make themselves better. Some examples are Jamario Moon, Gerald Green and I think Kwame Brown too.

RIGHT ON THE BALL!!!
Z. Randolph is the biggest idiot to play basketball since michael ray richardson.
great talent but dont know much about team basketball, always out for themselves.

The list Cory started i believe is completely off....
how can you have, AI, jr smith, sasha v, shannon brown, lamar and jordan farmar in the list of low basketball iq?
AI- ball hog but will win you ball games as a starter
jr.smith- quick to shoot and thats his roll, he picks his spots and drop bombs
with sasha, shannon, lamar and jordan- these are all key players for the lakers and without them the triangle would not work...and players with low basketball iq can not handle the traingle offense....

eddie curry and kwame brown are interesting candidates but they are just tall players who CANT play basketball, doesnt mean they have low basketball iq...they just flat out suck!

jamario moon and gerald green...to me they are just scrub players in the nba who clearly has talent but i havnt seen them play enough to say they have low basketball iq....

Just about anybody that ever entered the slam dunk competition. Nate has improved though, over what he was. I'll give him that.

I'd definitely say Zach Randolph and Joey Graham(a year ago).
