  1. How you gonna post an article about the best looking players and NOT take the extra few seconds to include a clear photo of each player on your list so we know who and what the author is referencing? Because I can almost guarantee; the people googling “hottest basketball players” who ended up at this page are NOT the same people who also know the first thing about basketball or who any pro basketball players are except for Michael, Kobe and that one dude from Ohio I think.

  2. Sorry for the person that might be slightly blind, but the Memphis Grizzlies has the most attractive players all of them in the entire NBA, just take a close look please 🥺
