NBA players tend to be pretty popular guys. While not every professional basketball player enjoys the same lifestyle of superstars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Steph Curry, they’re still more wealthy and more famous than the average person will ever be. With all this wealth and fame comes plenty of opportunities to enjoy a few vices. While some NBA players actually live relatively quiet personal lives, others choose to hit the club every weekend, throw their money around, and, of course, spend a little time with whatever ladies may happen to be around.
That last one is particularly interesting. It sometimes feels like there are two different kinds of NBA players. Those who marry relatively young and stay married for a long time and those who live sex lives the likes of which haven’t been seen since the Roman empire. That’s not exactly true, but the shocking nature of the stories involving NBA players who have a particular weakness for the ladies are so unbelievable that they make everyone else look like simple family men in comparison. Say what you want about the way they spend their time, but these are the stories of the top 15 basketball players who have hooked up with the most women.
15 Jason Caffey
It wouldn’t be too surprising to hear that you don’t remember Jason Caffey from his playing days. After all, he didn’t really do too much on the court worth remembering. Despite winning two championships with the Bulls in the late ‘90s, Caffey never really put up jaw-dropping numbers. Well, that is unless you’re counting "number of children" fathered as a stat. It’s believed that Caffey fathered 10 different children with about eight different women during his playing career. While that’s an astonishing number in its own right, you really have to consider it to be just a preview of what Caffey was really up to.
14 Dwight Howard
So far as his sexual adventures go, Dwight Howard is a strange guy. Publicly, he is known as one of the most deeply religious players in the league. Howard noted he wanted to use his NBA career to raise the name of God throughout the world, and his work with various Christian charities and organizations is well-known. However, Howard has openly admitted on several occasions that women are his great weakness and one of the greatest challenges of remaining an honest man in the NBA.
13 Rick Fox
Rick Fox is another player whose actual career really isn’t that remarkable in the grand scheme of things, but was fairly impressive nonetheless. As a member of the Lakers during that franchise’s historic Shaq/Kobe led dynasty, Fox had his best career years as a fourth or fifth option who could take advantage of openings in order to score some utility points. He’s wasn’t the kind of player you would link to some of the most attractive women in Hollywood, even though that’s exactly who he dated.
12 J.R. Smith
11 Dominique Wilkins
While everyone has their favorite NBA era, many people tend to agree that the NBA was, in many ways, at its best during the ‘80s. In any case, the NBA was certainly at its most popular during that time period as new players became international stars season after season. One of these players was big man Dominique Wilkins who became famous for his gravity-defying dunks. When he wasn’t serving as the human highlight reel, Wilkins apparently liked spending quite a bit of time with the ladies.
10 Dikembe Mutombo
Dikembe Mutombo is not just one of the NBA’s great all-time defensive big men, he’s also one of the NBA’s great all-time personalities. Mutombo’s trademark finger wag became the bane of many players' existence. There were times when it seemed like it was impossible to get past Mutombo’s defending, and his skills were made even more infuriating by the way he loved to rub in his defensive stops. You would think that such a personality would be quite the ladies man.
9 Winston Bennett
Winston Bennett is the latest example of how an NBA player doesn’t need to be a world famous athlete to be a true playboy. Bennett was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 64th overall pick in the 1988 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-7 Bennett was entering the NBA at a time when big men still ruled and the Cavaliers hoped he could become a diamond in the rough. Despite a decent rookie season, Bennett just never lived up to his potential.
8 Jason Kidd
7 Larry Johnson
6 Shawn Kemp
5 Kobe Bryant
4 Calvin Murphy
When you hear some stories regarding the sexual adventures of certain NBA players, you really do start to wonder how these players found the time to actually get around as much as they did. Forget all the other factors, the amount of time these alleged encounters must have taken is simply mind-boggling. In fact, were it not for players like Calvin Murphy, we’d doubt that many of these claims were true. However, Murphy’s case makes it clear that anything is possible.
3 Dennis Rodman
Dennis Rodman had been called crazy, eccentric, arrogant, and narcissistic during his career, but there are two words that were never used to describe Rodman in his prime. Boring and overrated. Rodman’s almost inhuman defensive abilities and penchant for foul play made him one of the most feared players in the NBA. He’s also the guy that once wore a wedding dress to promote his book, so you know he isn’t dull. Apparently, Rodman’s combination of skills and personality caught the interest of many ladies during the ‘90s.
2 Magic Johnson
1 Wilt Chamberlain
Well, who else could it be? As we’ve seen throughout this list, you sometimes have to take the claims of NBA players with a grain of salt. That said, you also have to respect that these are people who probably don’t have much reason to lie about such things and that even the most outrageous claims are based on some level of truth. So, when Wilt Chamberlain comes out and says that he slept with 20,000 women, you have to understand that even if that number is exaggerated by 10,000, it’s still far and away the “NBA record” so far as such things are concerned. If, however, 20,000 is an accurate number, then that means that Chamberlain would have had to sleep with an average of 1.4 women every day from the time he was 15 until he was 55. Wow.
