Top 10 hottest NBA players: LeBron James to Kevin Love, here are the hunks you can't take your eyes off
Sports aficionados finally have something to look ahead to. After the coronavirus pandemic ensured there was no live sporting action across the globe for a few months, the world is slowly opening up and sports activities have also started resuming. Football is being played in empty stadiums while F1 races have taken place in Austria and Hungary with zero crowd presence. Now fans across the US and the world will be eager to wait for the 22 NBA teams returning to play on July 30. This also means enough eye-candy time and crushing on the hottest superstars.
Now we don't have to check their Instagram accounts often and see what they're up to as the players return to the court and ahead of them resuming play, we take a look at the ten hottest NBA stars:
Zach LaVine (Chicago Bulls)
The Bulls shooting guard is a two-time Slam Dunk Contest champion. With his towering frame and well-sculpted arms, LaVine is all set to scorch the court with his scintillating gameplay and innate good looks. He was formerly part of the Minnesota Timberwolves and is a confessed Kobe Bryant fan modeling his game after the late legend.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks)
Them arms! It's like Anetokounmpo trains those guns every day. His nickname the "Greek Freak" comes from the size, and the audacious gameplay he brings to the table. Tall, built and handsome is a phrase that fits the Bucks Forward perfectly.
Kevin Love (Cleveland Cavaliers)
The son of former NBA player Stan Love, Kevin has been an eye-candy for fans for years now. At 6 feet 8 inches, he was also a member of the gold medal-winning United States national team at the 2010 FIBA World Championship and the 2012 Summer Olympics.
LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers)
Whatever gave you the idea King James wouldn't make it to this list? The Small Forward just doesn't bring home the wins, he's also got the charisma and quite the magnetic personality. The man from Akron is an absolute delight to watch. Quite simply, the man's fine wine.
Luka Dončić (Dallas Mavericks)
Dončić oozes boyish charm and the Slovakian has a million-dollar smile to go along with it. The 21-year-old was selected unanimously to the NBA All-Rookie First Team and won Rookie of the Year for the 2018–19 season.
Kawhi Leonard (Los Angeles Clippers)
Keeping aside the fact the man is a successful ball-hawker, Leonard can consider taking up modeling as an alternate career. The muscled forward is someone who makes it difficult to not be noticed when he's on the court and off it.
Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns)
Booker is the fourth-youngest player to reach 7,000 career points, behind only LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Carmelo Anthony. And that should give a fair idea of the immense talent he possesses and not to mention the handsomeness on full display.
Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors)
No list would be complete without Stephen Curry and he's more than just the man with the skill to shoot three-pointers. The broad shoulders and the intense gaze is enough to melt hearts when he's leaping up to dunk the ball in.
Ben Simmons (Philadelphia 76ers)
Simmons has it all: The attitude, the celebrations, the looks and the physique making him the perfect all-rounder on and off the court. Simmons was named NBA All-Star in 2019 and 2020. He will be the cynosure of all eyes when he enters the court for the 76ers.
The late Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers)
The death still stings. But we will remember that confident, yet kind smile. Bryant was an absolute legend and the man has these records to his name: Five NBA championships, 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, 12-time member of the All-Defensive Team, 2008 NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP), two-time NBA Finals MVP winner.
