Top 5 Most Tattooed NBA Players

There's so much ink in the NBA, it could power a space shuttle to the moon and back eight times.

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: So many weird tattoos, so little time.

There are so many players with bodies full of ink, it's difficult to narrow the field down to just five. And with each passing minute some NBA player, at this very moment, is probably getting inked up. The explosion of tattoos in the NBA over the last 10-15 years is in no doubt due to two people- Dennis Rodman and Allen Iverson.

Rodman was the first player to sport multiple tattoos, unabashedly, on the court. Iverson took a cue from Rodman and continued the trend, to the point now where roughly 70% of NBA players have tattoos.

Wilson Chandler

Chandler had several tattoos when he joined the league in 2007, and since then he hasn't slowed down at all. A big fan of comics (Juggernaut of X-Men fame), cartoons (Beavis and Butthead of all things, next to Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force) and rap music (an Eazy-E piece), Chandler has dedicated a portion of his body to each. Check out this article for the full break down.

 

JR Smith

Smith is filled to the brim as far as tattoos go, with some even now spilling out onto his ears and close to his face. Smith had around 70 tattoos "before I lost count." Smith actually said about tattoos that he "hated them" when he was younger, and told himself "he would never get like this." He seriously has no more room to add anything.

 

Chris Anderson

Speaking of a guy with no room left for tattoos, Chris "The Birdman" Anderson is in the same spot. In a lot of ways Anderson was a head of the game as far as body art and he has spawned a lot of imitators. I was on board until the "Free Bird" neck tattoo, the color in that thing was just too much. I had to put a pic of a young Anderson so you can see how far he has come, tattoo wise.

Monta Ellis

Ellis' stomach tree is probably the most noted stomach tattoo in the NBA. Gilbert Arenas' was for a while, and Kevin Durant's selection of tattoos is pretty close, but nobody beats Ellis. 

Dorell Wright

About five years ago, Wright was an afterthought in the category of "most tattooed NBA player." But now, he is easily one of the most tatted.

If Larry Bird had started playing in the NBA during the last decade, what would he have a tattoo of? Here's an idea:

2010 – 2011 Fantasy Ballers Small Forward (6-10)

2010 – 2011 Fantasy Ballers Small Forward (6-10)

The top 5 small forwards are top heavy. The bottom 5 holds their own. There is usually a huge drop off in talent from 6-10. That is not the case thus far. Even Linas Kleiza earned some recognition right here. Andrei Kirilenko’s mug shot on the big official site is scary. You want basket? He get basket. If they die, they die. The picture is intimidating.

Paul Pierce Hits Game Winner Against Heat

After getting blown out of the gym by the Celtics in Game 2 (and that's putting it quite mildly), the Heat kept it close and played a fairly well in Game 3. Unfortunately, they reverted back to their non-winning ways in the final seconds...

Miami Heat Could Trade Michael Beasley this Summer

There is a fairly strong chance that not a single one of those finishing five will be back with the Heat next fall when this soon-to-be-over series will be a distant, distasteful memory.

Yes, even Beasley -- the second overall pick of the 2008 draft.

What you may have missed on the eve of this series was a quote from Heat president Pat Riley that he seeks to build a dynasty this summer when Miami will have somewhere in the area of $24 million, as things stand now, to spend in free agency.

And as well as Dwyane Wade's supporting cast played Friday night in a gut-wrenching 100-98 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round series, it remains a supporting cast too anemic to be part of what Riley has planned for the future. Richardson, Wright and Haslem are on expiring contracts, and Chalmers' contract has a team option.

Dorell Wright Nude Photos Appear Online

After Greg Oden's doodle and George Hill's wang showed up online, I thought we'd seen the last of NBA dong for a while.  Nuh-uh.  Yet again a poor decision made about a year back has resulted in someone's junk being exposed to the world.  In this case, the baller in question is Dorell Wright, small forward for the Miami Heat.  After his girlfriend and baby mother Mia Lee posted a tweet in reference to Wright, a groupie and former hook-up responded by posting the compromising images that have put the 6'9" three in an embarrassing spot.  In the photos, Wright can be seen exposing himself during an online chat session.
