Young, charming, and successful, Jalen Green fits all the proper standards to appear on our list of NBA sexiest players.

Despite topping the list of the most athletic NBA players right now, Curry’s handsome looks couldn’t evade our watchful eyes.

He looks simple, devoted to the game and family, and does not adorn the same style of younger single stars in the league, which thus takes away the probing eyes of admirers.

Compared to other stars on our list, Curry probably does not have the incredible height the tallest NBA players have become associated with, but that does little to diminish his astounding frame.

There is no single way to describe LaVine, but to the extent our eyes and minds can, he is beyond phenomenal.

He has a gentle, calm look, which in an instant gives off a dangerous yet soothing sensation, which has numerous fans going gaga.
