10 NBA Players Cars
Wheels.ca has picked out 10 NBA Player cars you might want to look at.
These ballers know how to spend their big bucks on some badass rides.
Whether on the court or on the road, the NBA players on our list love to stand out. To these athletes, expensive cars are fun toys and most of them have more than one pricey vehicle in their garage. Wheels.ca has picked out 10 NBA Player cars you might want to look at:
Kobe Bryant – Helicopter
As much as we wanted to make Kobe Bryant’s brilliant mode of transportation our #1 choice, we had to keep our list focused on wheels. However, Bryant still gets a nod for finding the best way to beat the L.A. traffic. For years, it has been rumoured that Kobe arrives to some Lakers games in his personal helicopter. Recently the basketball superstar announced that this will be his last season in the NBA, so he might not need it anymore. Consider Kobe’s helicopter our wild card.
Carmelo Anthony – Jeep Wrangler
In November (2015) Carmelo posted a photo of his new whip on Instagram. The picture was of the Knicks player in front of a matte bright orange Jeep Wrangler with lots of custom modifications; unexpectedly modest for a guy who is making $22 million annually.
Blake Griffin – GMC Denali
Often, you can assume some of the biggest celebrities and athletes in the world are driving around in a generic, matte black SUV. Although this has become the norm, it’s still hard to tell who is inside, and it offers the celeb some security and privacy. Blake drives a matte-black GMC Denali with tinted windows and blacked-out rims. It was reported that his trunk space is filled with subwoofers. It’s pretty hard for your eyes to miss this modified beauty driving through the streets of L.A., it’s also pretty hard for your ears to miss it.
James Harden – Chevrolet Camaro
This Houston Rocket stands out on the court with that beard, and it’s clear he doesn’t mind standing out on the road with his ride. Promotor Sports posted a photo to their Instagram in May (2015) of a happy Harden with his new custom Camaro.
Steph Curry – Range Rover Supercharged LWB
Lately, Steph Curry is being compared to one of the best players to ever play in the NBA; Michael Jordan. Steph has a custom Range Rover pictured here in an Instagram post by California Wheels back in June (2015).
DeMar DeRozan – Mercedes Benz G63 SUV
The Toronto Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan might be seen driving around the 6ix in his blacked out Mercedes Benz AMG G-Wagon. He picked up his new modified family car from Promotor Sports back in May 2014.
Kevin Durant – Ferrari California
Over the years, Kevin Durant has been photographed near his red on red on red Camaro SS, his Ferrari California, and a white Range Rover. We’re not sure if the Oklahoma City superstar still has these rides, but he was seen in a white Range Rover more recently. In 2014, TMZ caught Durant leaving a club in L.A. while he was about to get in his Rover which was parked behind a Pagani. The TMZ reporter asked him about the Pagani parked in front of him and Durant jokingly replied, “I can’t afford it.” Clearly a joke, considering at the time Durant was in the middle of a 5-year 86 million dollar contract. Of the three cars Durant has been seen in, the Ferrari California is our favourite. One can only wonder if he pushes the pedal to the metal in his KD Nikes.
Russel Westbrook – Lamborghini Aventador
The most recent car one might think Westbrook owns is a Kia, which he won when he was awarded the title of NBA All-Star MVP. However, Westbrook gave his brand new Kia to a single mother who needed the car. The Oklahoma City point guard has been seen driving around many times in his orange Lamborghini Aventador.
LeBron James – Ferrari 458 Spider
LeBron threw people for a loop when he posted pictures on Instagram over a year ago of himself driving a Kia K900. The picture was a POV of LeBron in the driver’s seat with a caption that said, “Love this car!” At the time King James had a deal with Kia and got one for free… not long after it was being auctioned off for charity. Lebron’s choice of daily transportation to date is his red Ferrari 458 Spider as reported seen in a video made by Darren G in 2014 of a private look at LeBron’s playoff preparation. Here’s the video.
Dwyane Wade – Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
Dwyane Wade has built up quite the car collection over the years. He apparently owns about a dozen luxury cars like an Aston Martin Vanquish, an Audi R8 and a McLaren MP4-12C which he sold last year for around $800,000. His latest acquisition is a striking Ferrari F12. Instead of showcasing the vehicle, he casually slipped it in an instagram playing basketball with his son.
