The Coolest NBA Players Right Now, Ranked

List RulesVote up the basketball players you think are the coolest

Who is the coolest NBA player right now? All the coolest players in the NBA carry themselves with a swagger that can't be contained. They are confident and talented enought to back up that confidence. They are never shy in the biggest moments on the court, and they can handle the heat off the court. These are the players kids try to imitate on the playground while wearing their jerseys and carrying backpacks with their names on them. They make great guests on late night shows and sometimes even appear in movies and TV shows. So, who is the coolest player in the NBA?

The coolest basketball players in the game right now are champions like LeBron James (who starred in Space Jam 2) and Subway-spokesman Stephen Curry. MVPs like James Harden and Russell Westbrook carry themselves with a certain level of swagger, and up-and-coming stars like Ja Morant and Luka Doncic, who are among the best players in basketball right now, are certainly very cool too.

So, who are the coolest players in basketball right now? Which of these players defines cool in the NBA? Vote for the players you think have that "it" factor.
