  • Height: 1.98 m
  • Weight: 92 kg
  • Current Club: Charlotte Hornets
  • Position: Small Forward/ Shooting Guard

This shooting guard is one of the best young NBA players, which is why he played for some basketball clubs like the Atlanta Hawks and The Wizards. Most importantly, the Charlotte Hornets were lucky to sign him for only USD 24.6 million.

Kelly is an unforgettable player who brings wild energy to the basketball floor and the game. Plus, Oubre’s long curls, attractive model-like facial features, cool tattoos, beautiful physics, and clothing taste gathers an even bigger fan crowd.

Hence, why Kelly is our number 1 pick among the hottest NBA players.

  • Born: 7 September 1988
  • City/ Country: Santa Monica, California, United States
  • Height: 2.03 m
  • Weight: 113 kg
  • Current Club: Cleveland Cavaliers
  • Position: Power Forward/ Centre

Kevin is an American professional athlete that’s currently playing with the Cavaliers. This good-looking basketball player is a 5x decorated All-Star. And let’s not forget the NBA championship he won with the Cavs (2016), also the gold medal that hung around his neck in the FIBA World Championship (2010).

However, let’s look away from his shiny medals, golden rings, and championships. You must’ve noticed how indisputably handsome and fashionable he is.

Kevin’s the ultimate all-American boy, blue-eyed, tall, and with a body built that many wish they had.

Serge, the free agent that returned to the Milwaukee Bucks (his present team), is another NBA championship winner. In fact, he won that championship wearing the Raptor’s colours.

However, we need to thank the Seattle SuperSonics for opening the NBA doors to Ibaka when they chose him as the 24th pick (2008).

Aside from Ibaka’s famous shot blocks and incredible defence, he’s also considered possibly the hottest African player in the league.

Overall, Serge’s Congolese-Spanish blend, dark skin, and outstanding taste for high fashion are pretty mesmerizing.

Blake Griffin is currently a Celtics power forward and the best, if we may say, in the last decade or so. Additionally, this 2009 NBA draft pick by the LA Clippers is also a 6x NBA All-Star.

And when this American ball-pro player isn’t conquering championships or winning Slum Dunk contests, he’s enjoying the company of beautiful women like Kendal Jenner, Madison Beer, or Bethany Gerber.

An adorable smile, little freckles on the face, red hair and beard, and a ‘killer’ body – is a winning combination.

The Brooklyn Nets #10 is the young handsome, looking NBA Rookie of the Year (2018) – Simmons.

This Australian entered the NBA as a first-pick for the Philadelphia 76ers in 2016 and stayed with them until 2022.

However, we’ll be seeing more of Ben in the Brooklyn Nets. They’ll undoubtedly use his height and skills for excellent defensive play, block jumpers, and three-point shootings.

Furthermore, besides his strong basketball skills, Simmons has quite a fan club. He’s one of those players that take care of their looks — stylish, with a pretty face + curly hair – it’s a sign of “trouble.”

  • Weight: 107 kg
  • Current Club: Boston Celtics

The new power forward for the Boston Celtics with Italian roots is a much-needed asset to the team. Though, due to his knee injury, we’ll have to be patient to see this veteran showcase his basketball experience.

Meanwhile, you must’ve noticed this pro wearing jerseys of big names like The Knicks, Denver Nuggets, Clippers, Oklahoma City, and the Hawks. That’s quite a list of significant sports teams he drafted.

However, his presence doesn’t go unnoticed by his fans off the court. Impressive height, strong physics, quite appealing, and an Armani modelGallinari is a-must addition to our top list of hottest NBA players.

On Ellington’s list, you’ll find names like Minnesota Timberwolves (2009 NBA draft), Memphis Grizzlies, Cavaliers, the Mavericks, and so on. Although he is not one of the worst NBA busts, he still didn’t have the career that many people were predicted.

After a play of back and forward, the three-point ‘bomber’ is back in one of the most valuable sports teams, the Lakers. Though Wayne isn’t receiving a high-net salary like Curry, still, he’ll show you lots of basketball action and guaranteed points.

Additionally, this dark skin, tall, good-looking player simply ‘robs away’ fans’ hearts on and off the court.

Besides his basketball skills and excellent shooting hand, Kuzma dominates one of the most profitable sports leagues the NBA. He’s known for his frequent change of haircuts and unique, cool designer clothing. Let’s not forget his tattoos too.

  • Height: 1.83 m
  • Weight: 79 kg
  • Current Club: Phoenix Suns
  • Position: Point Guard

Chris, the famous timeless point guard, now with the Suns, needs no introduction.

He is another veteran that makes basketball what it is today. Moreover, he’s the man that led the Suns to the NBA Finals for the first time in almost 3 decades.

But, this doesn’t surprise us at all. Chris Paul has always been a magnificent team leader – and one with fine values too. That said, rumours say his comeback to the Phoenix Suns is as heavy as USD 120 million.

Whereas Paul’s reputation is increasing too, thanks to his elegant, fresh style that suits many of his fans.

  • City/ Country: Maywood, Illinois, United States
  • Height: 1.96 m
  • Weight: 99 kg
  • Current Club: Dallas Mavericks

Dallas Mavericks scored themselves a much-needed shooting guard in 2021 – Sterling Brown.

This professional player walked through the ‘big gates’ of basketball in 2017 when the 76ers picked him as the 46th overall draft.

We’re guessing the Maverick’s hoped for a 2021 season like the one Brown gave the Rockets, where he achieved 8.2 points and 4.4 rebounds a game. However, the reality and expectations didn’t quite meet.

Hopefully, Brown will get his ‘mojo’ back, improve his shooting, and increase his game time.

Nevertheless, his status as a “player” is as strong as always. The neat short haircut, big brown eyes, and amazing body build are a head-turner for many.
