Top 15 Hottest Players Currently in the WNBA

When considering the hottest female athletes in sports today, tennis and even soccer might be the first sports to come to mind. However, there happen to be some good looking ladies who make a living by playing in the WNBA. The sport might be dominated by women who have great size and above average strength, but off the court many of these woman are perfectly capable of letting their hair down to show their more feminine side. These women have to compete harder than most men to win roster spots in what is only a 12-team league, so it can often be hard to see more than their pure grit and determination.

Many of these players do not have the time or inclination to appear in magazine spreads or photo shoots, however, through social media and WNBA media days, it is easy to see how attractive they can be. One of the stars of the league, Lauren Jackson, has been good enough to draw attention from Sports Illustrated, while Skylar Diggins and Candace Parker have certainly spent plenty of time in front of a photographer's lens. There was a time when ex-player Lisa Leslie was one of the WNBA's biggest stars as well as one of the most beautiful women in all of sports, so it should come with no surprise that there are other players who are capable of being so photogenic. There might be some time before any of the league's current crop of players receive the attention that Leslie has been able to receive, but it will certainly not hurt the sport if any of them can come pretty close.

The following is a list of the leagues 15 hottest current players that will give a good indication of the photogenic talent that exists. There might be more to add to this list, but there certainly is ample evidence to support the inclusion of these particular WNBA players on this esteemed list.

It might surprise some that Skylar Diggins tops this list, but her ability to sizzle on the cover of magazines and photo shoots is hard to top. She can look sassy, elegant and playful, having no fear or lack of confidence when she is the subject of a camera's lens. Diggins is no stranger to appearing in Sports Illustrated and has been on the cover as well as in several other magazines, despite the fact that she only started her WNBA career in 2013. The former McDonald's High School All-American starred at Notre Dame, where she became the school's all-time leading scorer. Last season at Tulsa, she became an All-Star, while also earning the honors of being the WNBA's Most Improved Player by averaging 20.1 points and 5.0 assists per game. She is an All-Star who has no problem being the star attraction at any photo shoot.
