As the NBA playoffs continue, getting more intense with each game, it seemed fitting to feature a handful of the pro players and their amazing vehicles.
Not only do they have awe-inspiring moves on the court, these NBA player’s cars show they have exceptional taste in luxury vehicles.
Now, check out these top NBA players and their cars:
5. Lamborghini Aventador
Owner: Kobe Bryant
Hailed as one of the best and most respected NBA players in history, it is no surprise that Kobe Bryant’s car – the $400k + Lamborghini Aventador – made it onto our list. The Aventador is an iconic supercar and one of Lamborghini’s higher-end models boasting an impressive V12 engine with 700 hp that enables the Aventador to race from 0-60 mph in only 2.9 seconds. The Aventador’s exterior is jaw dropping and turns heads everywhere it’s driven.
With a net worth of $350 million and an annual salary of $25 million it isn’t surprising that this is but one of many supercars in Kobe Bryant’s car collection. Although Kobe retired from the NBA in 2016, he will remain in the hall of fame forever and will undoubtedly continue to enjoy the luxuries of his supercar collection.

But wait, there’s one more we wanted to include as an honorable mention.
4. Rolls Royce Phantom
Owner: Lamar Odom
Price: Approximately $500k
The Rolls Royce Phantom is the epitome of luxury and comfort and is the most expensive of Lamar Odom’s cars. The vehicle is equipped with a state-of-the-art suspension system that creates an air-cushioned feeling unique to Rolls Royce. At Rolls Royce every detail matters whether it is the five coats of paint on the body shell, the hand-stitched leather work, or the ability to personalize the interior to one’s lifestyle. Of course, this Phantom also includes the signature pop-out umbrella hidden in the driver’s door.
The best part, Lamar received the $500k vehicle as a present from Khloe Kardashian after winning the 2010 NBA Championship. That isn’t to say that he couldn’t afford it on his own earning $8.2 million annually with a net worth of $30 million.

3. Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren
Owner: Dwyane Wade
Price: $500k +
In case you couldn’t tell by the name, the Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren is a grand tourer vehicle developed in a joint venture between Mercedes and McLaren. This supercar is powered by a V8 hand-built engine delivering 626 horsepower to its core enabling it to reach 60 mph from standstill in 3.8 seconds. This supercar set Dwayne Wade back a little over $500k, which is not much considering his net worth is $95 million with an annual salary of $20 million.
Inception of the SLR dates back to the 1950s, its unique design and partnership with McLaren has made it an iconic supercar.
2. Knight XV Truck
Owner: Dwight Howard
The most impressive of Dwight Howard’s cars, the ultra-luxurious, handcrafted, fully armored SUV, is only one of one-hundred manufactured. Built for the overly cautious millionaire, the Knight XV is capable of withstanding an attack by a small army. The engineers at Knight went as far as posting a ballistic test chart specifying in detail the vehicle’s body armor resistance to various types of ammunition. Dwight Howard is worth a healthy $100 million earning $21.4 million annually, making the $620k price tag for the Knight XV affordable.

1. Bugatti Veyron
Owner: Derrick Rose
Price: $1.7 million
With a net worth of $85 million and an annual salary of $34 million, it is no surprise that 27 year old Derrick Rose chose to purchase the fastest vehicle in the world for a whopping $1.7 million. By far the most expensive of Derrick Rose’s cars, the Bugatti Veyron, holds the Guinness World Record for a top speed of 267.86 mph. If that doesn’t impress you, this supercar can also accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds.
The Veyron can reach these speeds thanks to the engineers who equipped the machine with a 2.1-gallon quad-turbocharged W16 cylinder engine that produces 1,200 horsepower. Unfortunately, even if Derrick Rose’s car is in your budget, it is completely sold out. Our recommendation: become friends with Derrick Rose.

Mercedes Benz G-Wagon
Owner: Stephen Curry
Price: Approximately $250k
Golden State Warrior’s Stephen Curry has been the talk of the NBA this year. It only seems right to include him and his custom Mercedes G-Wagon.
Curry’s Mercedes G55 is the definition of luxury, from its tailored leather ventilated and heated seats, exquisite leather door panels, steering wheel trim, and its Harman Kardon digital surround sound system.
Under the hood the G55’s 416 horsepower engine is designed to handle almost any type of terrain. Curry decided to upgrade the level of luxury on the G55 by installing customized alloy wheels and a chrome finish.
