I’ve seen about 100 articles dedicated to the ugly players in the NBA.Â Â In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve done one myself.Â However, I believe I’m quite secure in my own manhood that I can admit when a man is handsome.Â In fact I’ll go as far as to say “damn, that guy is pretty handsome” from time to time.
Oh come on guys!Â You can’t tell me that Taye Diggs doesn’t make you all tingly.Â OK maybe he doesn’t but the dude is still good looking.Â With that said, while we’re years ahead of slick dudes like Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins (and Larry Bird?Â No), the National Basketball Assocation does have its fair share of good looking guys.
So without further delay, may I present my best effort at compiling the 10 most handsome current players in the NBA.
Leon Powe – Boston Celtics
Powe is just stylin’ isn’t he?Â What a badass.
Kobe Bryant – Los Angeles Lakers
I’d say Bryant is more groomed and GQ than anyone on this list.Â So I suppose handsome is to follow.
Antonio McDyess – Detroit Pistons
He’s got that old school smile.Â Plus I met him in an airport, so he’s on this list.
Emeka Okafor – Charlotte Bobcats
I mean the guy was voted one of the top 50 most beautiful people.Â Okafor is a layup for this list.Â Â What a pretty boy.
Dwayne Wade – Miami Heat
About as cool as they come. Â Also in the GQ top 50.Â And now that he’s single?Â Watch out ladies.Wally Szczerbiak – Cleveland Cavaliers
You guys LOVE this picture
It’s one of two routes with Wally.Â The ladies seem to love him so he’s earned his spot. Â Though I think he’s kind of weird looking.
Rashard Lewis – Orlando Magic
Don’t ask why but me and my fellas call him LEMS.Â His skin’s a bit rough but the man is studly.
Tony Parker – San Antonio Spurs
Danilo Gallinari – New York Knicks
The Rooster!Â Caawwwww!
Kelenna Azibuke – Golden State Warriors
This guy could be an Abercrombie model in about 5 seconds.
Honorable Mention to Gilbert Arenas, Ray Allen, and Chris Paul
