The Biggest Players In The NBA Right Now, Ranked

Updated January 10, 2020 68.6k views48 items

List RulesVote up the best players who weigh 250 pounds or more.

The NBA is a league for big, tall men, and the heaviest basketball players in the sport in the 2019-20 season are throwing their weight around the court to succeed, even if they're not the tallest in the NBA. While smaller players like Stephen Curry and James Harden have reshaped the league (literally), some of the most powerful basketball players today like LeBron James and Anthony Davis tip the scales at 250 pounds or more.

Of course, just because these players are carrying around a little extra weight, they would not necessarily make anyone's list of fattest athletes. No one is making fat jokes about perennial MVP candidates like Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic. There is no question about the athleticism of some of the biggest players in the NBA, like Zion Williamson, Andre Drummond, and Lamarcus Aldridge.

So who are the best heavy players in the NBA? Which of these big men deserves to be at the top of the ranking of the league's heaviest players? Vote below, then head over and check out the heaviest NFL players, in another league known for its big men.
