The Hottest Players in the NBA
This Washington Wizards hottie was popular enough at his alma mater, the University of Kentucky, to inspire an iconic hip-hop dance, "the John Wall." It consists of flexing your bicep and swinging your wrist from one direction to the other. (Basically, everything we could ask for from a guy with gorgeous arms like that.) If you haven't heard the song "Do the John Wall" by Troop 41, go press play now.
All we want is for this 25-year-old Spaniard and Minnesota Timberwolves player to whisper sweet Spanish nothings in our ear. Though he started as the youngest player ever to be drafted by the Spanish ACB league (he was just 14!), we like him better in America—partially because his scruffy look matches his team's mascot so well.
Eva Longoria's French ex-husband brings some San Antonio Spurs spice to the court. Now that he's single? We'll volunteer to be one of his next Desperate Housewife. (Although, he should totally be missing his ex, who killed it as one of our fave Celebrities Who Looked Fit and Fabulous at the Golden Globes.)
New York native and NBA veteran Carmelo Anthony still lights it up on the court (and in our hearts) after 12 years of playing. Not to mention, he has boss-level style off the court—just ask GQ and his crazy-luxe watch collection.
Chicago Bulls player Derrick Rose may have had a spot on Team USA in the past, but there's debate as to whether he'll be headed to Rio de Janiero for the 2016 summer Olympic Games. Either way, we're happy to spend this winter watching him dribble up and down the court. (Keep an eye on these other Rio 2016 Olympic Hopefuls You Need to Start Following On Instagram.)
Los Angeles Clippers player Blake Griffin grew up in Oklahoma and played for Oklahoma Univeristy before heading to the big city. If his brooding eyes and bulging muscles don't make him enticing enough at age 26, this adorable Instagram of him as a young t-ball player just about seals the deal.
Tyson Chandler has 14 years of court experience under his belt—er, basketball shorts. He's started his career with the Chicago Bulls, played stints with the Dallas Mavericks and New York Knicks )among other teams), and started the 2015-2016 season in his first year as a Phoenix Sun. But no matter what uniform he's in, there's one thing we know for sure: he looks damn good.
J.J. Redick's most attractive quality isn't necessarily that he pulled off that old Orlando Magic uniform so well, or that he still kills it now that he's joined the LA Clippers. It's how adorable he is with his son, Knox (who, by the looks of this Instagram, has a future in basketball, just like his dad).
Dwayne Wade (also known as "D-Wade" or "Flash") brings some serious Miami Heat from South Beach. Sadly, he's not single—but he's married to knockout Gabrielle Union (who is rocking a fabulously fit body.)
This Congolese-Spanish Oklahoma City Thunder player sends a rumble through our hearts (and some lighting sparks as well). The international basketball star has an eye for style and a seriously ripped body as well. If we didn't think his girlfriend, Keri Hilson, and daughter, Raine, were so adorable, we'd be tempted to snag some of that thunder for ourselves.
