These are the NBA players with the most kids, loosely ranked by how famous and popular they are. Several popular basketball players have five or more children. Some NBA stars with lots of kids had their children young, while other basketball players with a lot of kids waited until they were older. Several NBA players have a lot of baby mamas and other basketball players have had all their children with the same woman.
