List Rules Vote 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 right now are throwing their weight around the court to succeed. While smaller players like Stephen Curry and James Harden have reshaped the league (literally), some of basketball's most powerful players 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.
