The Funniest NBA Players in the League

There are the accidental funny guys, and then there are the NBA players who are the year-round chucklesome chaps ever.

Save for JaVale McGee, a constant in Shaqtin’ a Fool (also known as The JaVale McGee show).

Here’s a compilation of his funny moments.

Random NBA players pop up to show their comical side, from time to time.

A Reddit user asked:

Who do you think are the funniest NBA players in the league?

Redditors did not disappoint with their choices.

1) Lance Stephenson

Stephenson has a reputation for being the funniest man in the NBA mainly because of his goal celebrations—his and his teammates’. He won’t back down even from taunting LeBron James. 

2) Robin Lopez

Lopez is known for beating up mascots—his NBA trademark. YouTube has a compilation of Robin Lopez vs. NBA Mascots. Lopez is talented too. Here’s proof.

3) Kyle Lowry

Lowry knows all the tricks to piss off his teammates. He goofs every person around him, but his favourite is DeMar DeRozan.

4) Klay Thompson

Thompson can be so hilarious without really trying. It’s not just because he is part of one hell of an entertaining team, the Golden State Warriors. Going back, one day he is Classic Klay and the next day, he is China Klay—his alter ego.

5) JJ Redick

Redick has his own antics including video bombing other players’ post-game interviews. But when he was being interviewed and remembered that the last man on the locker room has to dance, he ran as fast as he could.

6) Joe Ingles

Ingles always has the funniest things to say on and off-court. And when asked about who he thinks the most hilarious one in Utah Jazz, Ingles came up with this answer.

7) Nick Young

Young has the wittiest comebacks. But there is nothing compared to Young reacting to his highlights including his three-point miss celebration.

8) Nikola Jokic

Jokic has a way with kids—the most amusing way he can. And he seems to know when the cameras pan on him. His biggest enemy yet? The NBA microphone.

9) Demar DeRozan

DeRozan is the ever-rollicking guy, especially when with Lowry who are always clowning on one another.

10) Russ Westbrook

Westbrook tries to look funny when people are looking at him, but can be very funny by himself, for himself. And yes, he loves to dance so much!

11) Kevin Durant

Durant is not trying to be amusing at all, but everything he does seems so. You’d love his courtside moments the most.

12) Giannis Antekokounmpo

Antetokounmpo is your go-to guy for the worst jokes, but his jokes are so awful they became funny in the end. He has the driest sense of humor among the players.

10 of the Best 3-Point Shooters in NBA History

Only a handful of basketball players can dominate the perimeter. And when they do, it would be an unstoppable three-point shooting blast.

Below are some of the best three-point shooters to grace the NBA–the forces to reckon with from downtown.

10. Jason Terry

Terry was playing since 1999, and throughout his 14 years in the NBA, he was the fifth player with the most three-point field goals made. Before Stephen Curry had his 2,483 points, Terry dominated the position from 2014 to 2018.

9. Peja Stojakovic

Allen and Miller, his contemporaries, can easily overshadow Stojakovic. But his three-point shooting prowess is nothing to sneeze at. Stojakovic won the three-point shooting contests of 2002 and 2003. He was the league’s leader in the 2003-04 season with his 43.3% shooting percentage.

8. Kyle Korver

Korver’s 15 years of being an NBA player had been fruitful. He was one of the most reliable three-point shooters in association’s history. In 2009-10 season, he shot 53.6% of his three-point range shooting. From 2012 to 2014, he scored a trey in 127 straight games as well.

7. Steve Nash

Nash has a 42.8% three-point shooting percentage. He was a point guard, so this may come as a surprise since passing the ball to a teammate was second nature to him. Nash became famous for his big shots during big moments.

6. Larry Bird

Bird dominated the NBA era when three-pointers were not as common as they are today, at a time when it was not even considered as part of the offence. He won the first two beyond-the-arc shooting contests. He was once the career record holder from 1985 to 1988. 

5. Klay Thompson

Thompson has over 40% shooting percentage from the three-point line. He also has two ball games where he scored 11 treys, one of which was during Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals of 2016 when the Golden State Warriors won against Oklahoma City Thunder.  He and Curry formed the three-point-shooter duo.

4. Reggie Miller

Miller holds the second career-high record with 2,560 points. He spent his eighteen years of being a professional basketball player with Indiana Pacers where he scored all the points. He was mostly known for his eights points in 8.9 seconds, two of which are three-point shots.

3. Steve Kerr

Kerr has an impeccable three-point shooting style. He was the all-time leader when it comes to three-point percentage with 45.4%. He even reached beyond 50% of his three-pointers in four different seasons. Kerr now coaches Curry and Thompson.

2. Ray Allen

Allen still holds the career record high with 2,973 points. The 2013 NBA finals became his crowning glory. Miami Heat won the finals in overtime (OT) on Game 6 and eventually, Game 7. One of the cited reasons for the championship was Allen’s jumper.

1. Stephen Curry

Curry has single-season three-point records which he also broke with an all-time high season after season. He currently leads the league with most treys, and he owns the record for hitting the trey in 157 straight games. Curry is also about to break Allen’s record for all-time three-points ever made.
