The best car collections of NBA stars

A top NBA star earns enough to buy whatever flash vehicles catch their eye. So what cars do the best basketball players in the world drive just now? 

LeBron James

As one of the best players to ever appear in the NBA, James has recently reached the 35,000 points mark. He is only the third basketball star to score that many points in his career, behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone.

Having joined the NBA in 2003, James has had a spectacular career with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Huge contracts for endorsements and successful business interests have helped him to rack up a fortune that is thought to sit at $500 million. So it is no wonder that he has one of the most incredible car collections in the world.

Among his most stunning vehicles are a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster with a unique paint job and a Ferrari 599. Just imagine the tough decisions that he is faced with every time that he has to choose which vehicle to use when going for a drive.

Dwight Howard

Howard is an NBA champion who has starred with the Orlando Magic and the LA Lakers, among others, in a hugely successful career that had made him one of the top free NBA betting expert picks.

He has been earning NBA money since 2004, with a decent chunk of it going on some of the most awesome vehicles money can buy.

He has been spotted with a Bentley Mulsanne, that has a twin turbo-charged 6.75-liter engine, as well as a Porsche Panamera. If you love seeing the planet’s finest cars, then keep an eye out to see what he rides next.

Derrick Rose

Another star who has been in the NBA for many years, Rose joined the Chicago Bulls at the first overall pick in the 2008 draft. He has played for several franchises since then and has recently spoken about the change in mentality that he is bringing to his second spell with the New York Knicks.

When he wants to get out and relax by driving, Rose can do so in style with this amazing Bugatti Veyron. One of the fastest and most expensive vehicles ever made, this supercar has 1001 horsepower and costs about $1.7 million.

Kevin Durant

Durant joined the NBA elite when the Seattle SuperSonics chose him in the 2007 draft. Since then, he has enjoyed a glittering career and is currently playing for the Brooklyn Nets.

To add to his earnings, he has negotiated some of the best endorsements in the industry, with the likes of Nike and Foot Locker.

He has been spotted recently with a beautiful Mercedes Benz SLS AMG, which pumps out 563 horsepower and can race up to 62mph from a standing start in just 3.8 seconds.

He has also owned a Chevrolet Camaro SS, and with an estimated fortune of $170 million we can expect to see him with other great vehicles before too long.

Stephen Curry

Arguably one of the best players in the NBA right now, Curry has been with the Golden State Warriors since joining them in the 2009 draft. He was very close to achieve a quadruple double and get into this restricted list: edge.twinspires.com/nba/the-4-nba-players-who-have-achieved-a-quadruple-double/

Nonetheless, his outrageous skills have ensured that he is one of the planet’s highest paid sportspeople, so it is only natural that he has used some of that cash to splash out on some great cars.

He is said to own two Porsche 911 GT3-RS models, with each costing him about $200,000. He also has a Porsche Panamera Turbo S that cost a little bit less and a 2018 Infiniti Q50, as he is the company’s spokesperson and has appeared in their TV commercials.
