This guy is more famous for his looks than he is recognised for his skills with the ball, although that is coming together for him. He loves looking good and makes sure that his every outing on the court or outside leaves the fans breathless with his long curly hair and beautiful tattoos.

How do you get a basketball player to date you?
The first step will quickly be that you must be a fan of the sport or pretend to be, at least because this is what these athletes live for. They breathe basketball, and if you are hoping to be the apple of their eye, you better be ready to be comfortable in that atmosphere.
The above list of hottest NBA players is not the gospel as beauty may vary from person to person because, as the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Irrespective of whoever makes your list, what is certain is that they are most loved for their heights and sense of style.
