NBA Power Rankings: The 50 Most Embarrassing Player Photos of All-Time
Now these are some embarrassing photos of NBA players.
One doesn't have to look far to find these, as at least a few examples seem to crop up every season.
But which NBA player finds himself at the front end of this heinous countdown?
You'll just have to read on to see.
50. Hasheem Thabeet
Thabeet's trying to stay fly, but the only thing rockin' about this outfit is...well, nothing.
He's got the right idea with Grey Goose, but I can see my reflection in his jacket.
49. Josh Howard
Josh Howard was enjoying himself a little bit too much in this picture.
The image, which was taken during the earlier stages of his career, is an item of distant memory for Josh who is currently rehabbing in North Carolina in order to be completely healthy for the beginning of next season.
48. J.J. Redick
Redick does it like any college freshman would.
Crushing a cold one in the dorm room before heading out to the party.
47. Stephen Curry
Curry isn't doing anything explicit in the photo, but look at the expression on his face.
He knows what's going down after this party lets out.
46. Damon Jones
Damon Jones, who do you think you are?
Al Capone? Jay-Z? A famous basketball player?
45. Stephen Jackson
At least S-Jax keeps it classy and doesn't spill on himself.
After all, he is drinking straight from the bottle.
44. Yao Ming
There are no words that accurately describe this photo.
Yao Ming looks like the biggest lawn gnome in history.
43. Baron Davis
Baron Davis looks a little zonked out in this picture.
Maybe his fedora hat is on a little too tight.
42. D.J. Strawberry
D.J. Strawberry's claim to fame was on this girl's Facebook account.
Darryl's son never could quite find the handle at the highest level.
41. Kyle Korver
Kyle Korver's a little scared of getting posterized.
Or perhaps he just sees something frightening on the ground.
40. Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan is representing the Jordan brand proudly in this one.
Pouring shots while rocking the Jumpman's logo for the crowd to clearly see.
39. David Lee
David Lee, open your eyes.
Was it the flash on the camera that had him seeing double?
38. Devin Harris
There's nothing all that criminal about Harris' photo at first glance.
But then you realize that he's drinking an apple martini, and you no longer wonder why he's so fragile.
37. Kobe Bryant
Kobe was feeling all sorts of sassy when he let the water fly from his cheeks.
Hopefully his teammates thought it was as funny as he did.
36. Mehmet Okur
Mehmet Okur is celebrating between two good-looking women, and that's the face he makes.
No wonder he's seen as such a Euro-weenie.
35. Allen Iverson
Iverson was already having a tough time getting his braids to behave.
And then he got busted by the Philadelphia Police Department.
34. Glen Davis
Glen Davis was caught sobbing on the sidelines of this loss.
I guess that's why they call him Big Baby.
33. Charles Barkley
Barkley is slamming down the Patron straight from the bottle at this club.
Afterwards, he began a "D-E-F-E-N-S-E" chant.
32. George Hill
When will athletes learn that it's never a good idea to send a picture of their junk?
Apparently Mr. Hill didn't get the memo.
31. Wally Szczerbiak
Szczerbiak isn't making the fur hood work.
And he's wearing an Affliction T-Shirt. I think we have an official tool alert.
30. Dirk Nowitzki
As if Dirk's face isn't bad enough, his lady of choice isn't exactly the prettiest.
But take a closer look. Nowitzki is actually wearing her earrings.
29. Ron Artest
This was an embarrassing moment for the NBA, but an all-time low for Ron Artest.
He'll work for the rest of his career to repair his image after the brawl.
28. Golden State Warriors
Happy New Year from the Golden State Warriors.
Baron Davis, Stephen Jackson, Monta Ellis and Kelenna Azubuike sure do know how to keep it classy.
27. Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan ranks as the greatest hooper of all-time.
But his dancing skills? They could use some work.
26. Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman and Carrot Top...more strange than the Odd Couple.
I'm not sure what's more appalling: Carrot Top's faux NBA jersey or Dennis Rodman's hat.
25. Hedo Turkoglu
Turkoglu was booed in his return to Toronto and greeted the crowd with the utmost class.
The only thumbs down belongs to his declining level of play.
24. Greg Oden
Watch those knees, big man!
This girl that Oden's dancing with sure wasn't expecting what she got.
23. LeBron James
LeBron James, a crybaby?
He sure didn't look too happy in his headband during his playing days in Cleveland.
22. Glen Davis
That is one monster glob of drool.
That is Baby's raw emotion at its finest.
21. Reggie Miller
Reggie Miller looks way too excited about pouring this shot.
I think he likes the view from the top.
20. Sam Cassell
This is more about the Celtics' trainer than it is Cassell.
It sure looks like he's enjoying his job a little too much.
19. Michael Beasley and Mario Chalmers
Michael Beasley and Mario Chalmers know how to enjoy the NBA's rookie camp.
Nothing like a good game of Dominoes and some grass to get motivated for the drills.
18. Steve Nash
Steve Nash wanted to show off the carpet on his chest.
And apparently, he feels he's "sexy like animal."
17. Chris Bosh
Mr. Bosh appears a wee bit inebriated in this photo.
And in case his low eye slits don't show it, perhaps his choice in party playmates does.
16. Yao Ming
There's nothing wrong with Yao drinking a little vino, but doesn't he know the etiquette associated with it?
Hold it by the stem, Mr. Ming!
15. Yao Ming
Yao was feeling funky after the defender decided to lick his armpit as a defensive technique.
Now that's some unorthodox defense.
14. Michael Beasley
Supercool Beas sure apparently loves the reefer.
This is the second photo on this list that features him alongside a baggie.
13. Kobe Bryant
Kobe's white-hot look might've been popular in Italy.
But it sure wasn't well received among his U.S. fanbase.
12. Greg Oden
Oden exposed himself for the world to see through the use of his cell phone.
I guess we know how he spends his time when he's off of the hardwood.
11. Allen Iverson
You know he's wearing that Angels fitted because he thinks the A is for Allen, too.
10. Dennis Rodman
This would be No. 1 if it were any player other than Dennis Rodman.
But frankly, this is somewhat normal for the eccentric power forward.
9. Charles Barkley
Charles Barkley gave Dickie B. a smooch front and center at the All-Star Game.
Now that's what I call a bromance.
8. Joakim Noah
Joakim Noah loves the beach.
There might be sand everywhere, but that's OK since Noah brought his own grass.
7. Joakim Noah
The Joakim Noah show continues as he parties in the Hamptons.
This guy is clearly just living the dream.
6. Joakim Noah
And the Noah saga continues to grow.
Gee, I wonder what he was looking for in this store. Maybe a nice new novel to read?
5. Mike Dunleavy
This picture of Mike Dunleavy gets more attention than his play on the court does.
And that's all you need to know about his disappointing career with the Pacers.
4. LeBron James
LeBron should never have attempted to relive Hammer's finest moment.
And for that matter, nobody should. There's a reason that style is no longer around.
3. Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash
Nowitzki and Nash...the perfect teammates.
These two did some serious damage during their days together in Dallas, and clearly it wasn't all on the court.
2. Kobe Bryant
Kobe looks like a sad clown who's been forbidden from speaking.
I mean, really. What was he trying to accomplish here?
1. Michael Jordan
Michael Jordan at his finest.
As bad as this picture is, it'd be infinitely worse if he was rocking the mini-stache he's been donning in his recent Hanes commercials.
