Don’t we all have to show some love for the pretty boys? I gave you our ‘Top 6 Worst Hairstyles in the NBA’ last week and was satisfied with leaving it at that until our boy, SML (StopMikeLupica.com) dropped by to pose a little challenge. He said that anyone can do the worst hair post, but only a real man can bring you the pretty
Damon has blessed so many NBA teams with his smiling face and flashy wardrobe that he was an easy choice for the NBA’s top pretty boy. The self proclaimed “best shooter in the NBA” could never quite live up to that tag and instead focused his time on a snazzy red blazer and a nifty little faux-hawk. Maybe if Damon worked a little harder on his game he could have made some noise with things other than his polished, matching outfits. At least we get to see the newest Euro look at every All-Star game for years to come, since we know Damon will not likely be wearing a red, blue, and gold jersey anytime soon.
2. Dwyane Wade
Dwyane Wade is so pretty, that Sean “Diddy” Combs decided to make him the first NBA supermodel! Back in 2005, Wade was picked as the ambassador for the Sean John clothing line and was featured on billboards across America. Today, D-Wade graces our television sets hourly showing off that perfectly cut hair, GQ style and “Oh I can’t get enough!” personality. Wade lives in the perfect pretty boy city in Miami, and with all that he has accomplished at such a young age, expect to see plenty more in the future.
Anyone known as the “Ashton Kucher of the NBA” deserves to be on every single pretty boy list ever created. The Korver pretty boy era began back in his Creighton days when he flew the Bluejays straight into the NCAA tournament by draining mounds of 3’s. Today he is still known as a great 3-point shooter but the rest of the world knows him as the guy who looks like the guy that starred in that really bad butterfly movie and the one who looks just like Demi Moore’s husband (That gave me the shutters just typing it). He does have a slightly snarled lip and the hair can become a little greasy at times, but who cares, he still makes this list! Ashton!
4. Ray Allen
In order to be a part of Team Jordan, you better be pretty! To me, Ray Allen has the essence of a pretty boy and pretty boy style. Also known in Spike Lee circles as Jesus, this guy exudes
5. Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers
If you live in L.A., speak 3 or 4 sexy foreign languages, and continue to wear all that Versace, what else could you be other than pretty? Even with the addition of a few random, sloppy tattoos, the NBA’s best player is definitely a pretty boy. He may carry a little bad boy baggage, but his cutesy little wife Vanessa makes sure he keeps his ‘pretty on.’ You definitely can’t attend a red carpet in L.A. unless you are damn pretty!
6. Marko Jaric, Minnesota Timberwolves
He’s dating Adriana Lima, enough said?
7. Wally Szczerbiak, Cleveland Cavaliers
All that gel and all those moles are just enough to get Wally Sczerbiak on the list of top pretty boys! He’s been pretty since his original Ohio days. I’m guessing those past few dreary months up in Seattle may have lowered him on this list but he should be back up there in no time with his return home. Did anyone else know that Wally is some sort of a cult figure in Ohio? News to me!
