The best players in the NBA can be just as flashy off the court as they are on it. One of the most common ways to show off their wealth is through the car they pull up to the arena. Whether they prefer a McLaren, Ferrari, or Lamborghini, the bank accounts of NBA superstars have zero limits. These are the most expensive vehicles owned by NBA stars!
Lamar Odom’s Rolls Royce Phantom Cost $400,000
Lamar Odom’s NBA career might be over, but he’s still riding around town in the lap of luxury behind the wheel of a $400,000 Rolls Royce Phantom. The luxury ride comes with 450 horsepower thanks to its 6.8-liter engine.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t Odom who footed the bill for the vehicle. In 2010, his then-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian bought it as a gift for him winning the NBA Championship with the Los Angeles Lakers. Since the couple split, rumors have surfaced that Kardashian took the car back, but nothing has been confirmed.
Dwyane Wade’s Mercedes SLR McLaren Cost A Cool $500,000
One of the greatest players in NBA history, Dwyane Wade was a 13-time All-Star and three-time NBA Champion. With all that glitter on his resume, he really didn’t need the glamour of a luxury vehicle, but he got one anyway – a $500,000 Mercedes SLR McLaren.
Loaded with a V8-engine, the Mercedes can reach 60 miles per hour in under four seconds and reaches a max of 210 miles per hour, which we don’t recommend Wade ever try to hit.
Dwight Howard’s Knight XV Truck Cost $600,000
Dwight Howard is a future Hall of Famer who was drafted by the Orlando Magic in 2004, was the team’s franchise player until 2012, and has moved around the league as an impact starter since. He moves around in style, too!
Howard reportedly pulls up to the arena in a $600,000 Knight XV Truck with a V10, 6.8-liter engine capable of 300 horsepower. This beast of truck weighs a massive 13 thousand pounds, too!
Magic Johnson’s Custom Rolls Royce Phantom Cost $500,000
NBA legend Magic Johnson spared no expense when it came to buying his dream car- a custom Rolls Royce Phantom with a half a million-dollar price tag. There were only 237 drop-top editions of the Phantom sold worldwide.
The Phantom is a vehicle fit for royalty, which Johnson can definitely be considered. Not only was he a major star for the “Showtime Lakers,” but he became a part-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers after retiring from the NBA.
Derrick Rose’s Bugatti Veyron Cost $1.7 Million
It’s okay to gasp when you see just how much former NBA MVP Derrick Rose spent on his Bugatti Veyron. The uber-luxury vehicle came with an over-the-top price tag of $1.7 million!
Rose’s Veyron is loaded to the brim with power. It comes with a W16 engine and four turbochargers, making it capable of reaching 1,000 horsepower. And to make sure the car doesn’t overheat as it creates so much friction, it has 10 radiators just to be safe.
LeBron James’ Lamborghini Aventador Cost $670,000
It’s good to be the king. LeBron James, whose nickname is “King James,” might drive one of the flashiest vehicles in the NBA. James’ Lamborghini Aventador has a custom wrap that was a multi-artist collaboration.
The final product cost James a reported $670,000 and looks like it should be on display in a museum. And while it’s not the fastest Lamborghini on the market, peaking at 700-horsepower, it is quite possibly the most unique.
John Wall’s Ferrari 458 Spider Cost $210,000
One of the highest-paid players in the NBA, John Wall wasn’t worried about the cost when he bought his Ferrari 458 Spider. The car cost a reported $210,000, which was just a fraction of the $170 million contract he signed with the Wizards in 2017.
The Ferrari isn’t the only extravagant car Wall owns. His garage is loaded with pricey wheels including a Porsche, Bentley, and Rolls Royce, which seems to be the car of choice for NBA stars!
Michael Jordan’s Aston Martin DB9 Volante Cost $220,000
Known as the greatest basketball player of all-time, Michael Jordan is also one of the most successful businessmen of the last 20 years. It’s no surprise then he drives a car fit for James Bond, a $220,000 Aston Marin DB9 Volante.
Jordan’s garage is full of other high-priced vehicles, but his Aston Martin is one of his preferred cruising cars. Unlike other rides we’ve revealed so far, Jordan’s Aston Martin isn’t customized.
Anthony Davis’ Mercedes-Benz S550 Cost $150,000
Anthony Davis is one of the brightest young stars in the NBA. At the end of 2020, he signed a $190 million, five-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, meaning he could easily afford his $150,000 Mercedes-Benz S550.
Davis’ Benz is fully loaded with customized after-market bumps. The status symbol for the superstar can reach 449-horsepower and has a classic look that will never go out of style. Davis might buy more cars in the future, but we don’t know if any will compare to this beauty.
James Harden’s Rolls Royce Wraith Cost $500,000
James “The Beard” Harden has made a name for himself as one of the best offensive threats in the NBA. As a result, he’s earning $228 million from his most recent contract. Why wouldn’t he show off with a $500,000 Rolls Royce Wraith?
Harden’s Wraith was custom painted and is a one-of-a-kind piece of driveable art. It doesn’t disappoint on the road, either, reaching very high speeds thanks to an engine capable of 600-horsepower.
Russell Westbrook’s Lamborghini Aventador Cost $380,000
The second Lamborghini Aventador on this list belongs to none other than Russell Westbrook. The 2017 NBA Most Valuable Player and nine-time All-Star spent a reported $380,000 on the supercar of his dreams.
Westbrook’s Aventador can reach a top sped of 217 miles per hour and can go from zero to sixty in under three seconds. While he owns several other high-priced vehicles, this custom-painted Lamborghini is the ride of choice to and from the arena.
Paul George’s Ferrari 458 Spider Cost $233,000
After spending $230,000 on his Ferrari 458 Spider, Paul George reportedly couldn’t drive it for over one year. When he made the luxury purchase, he was recovering from a gruesome leg injury. Perhaps the idea of getting behind the wheel helped keep him motivated during rehab.
The Ferrari 458 Spider comes with a V8 engine capable of 458-horsepower. Since his peak playing days with the Indiana Pacers ended, George has continued to be a major contributor and star on the court for the multiple franchises.
Kevin Durant’s Ferrari California Cost $200,000
Maybe the most impactful NBA superstar of the last decade other than LeBron James, Kevin Durant has made a reputation for himself as a title hunter. When he left the Oklahoma City Thunder to join the Golden State Warriors, he won his first of multiple rings.
It might have been in the Golden State that Durant dropped $200,000 on his Ferrari California. Having earned hundreds of millions in his career, it’s not like he couldn’t afford it.
Steph Curry’s Porsche GT3 RS Cost $200,000
Two NBA MVP and three-time NBA Champion Steph Curry deserves to buy whatever car he wants. Playing on a contract worth over $200 million, he had no problems dishing out an estimated $200,000 on his Porsche GT3 RS.
Curry doesn’t use the GT3 RS as his commuter car, though. That would be too flashy. Instead, he shows up to work every day in a Porsche Panamera. Does he own a car not made by Porsche?
Shaq’s Lamborghini Gallardo Cost $190,000
Shaquille O’Neal isn’t known for his subtlety. It’s hard to be subtle when you stand over seven feet tall and wear a size 27 shoe. The big man owns a lot of vehicles, too, including a $190,000 Lamborghini Gallardo.
The car had to be modified so that the large-bodied NBA Hall of Famer could fit inside. The biggest adjustment was extending the length of the vehicle by a massive 12 inches.
Dwyane Wade’s Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Cost $330,000
Retirement is treating Dwyane Wade extremely well. For his second appearance on this list, we’re featuring his Ferrari 412 Berlinetta, which cost a reported $330,000 and probably shouldn’t be left sitting in the driveway while a game of basketball with his son is happening.
The F12 Berlinetta that Wade owns has a 6.3-liter V12 engine capable of 700-horsepower, making it an incredibly powerful supercar. Probably not the car he’s going to pass on to his children someday.
LeBron James’ Ferrari F430 Cost $200,000
Reportedly, the $200,000 Ferrari F430 parked in LeBron James’ garage is one of his least expensive vehicles. The King’s car comes painted in silver with red lining, making it truly fit for NBA royalty.
Making more than $30 million a year, LeBron James can buy any fancy car he wants without making a huge dent in his bank account. When he originally made “The Decision” to leave Cleveland for Miami in 2010, the resulting payout was enough to buy 10 Ferrari F430s!
Dwight Howard’s Bentley Mulsanne Cost $400,000
The back half of Dwight Howard’s NBA career may not have gone as planned, but that hasn’t stopped him from buying extravagant vehicles. You’ve already seen his big truck, and now we’re giving you a look at his $400,000 Bentley Mulsanne.
With a classic town car look, Dwight Howard found the perfect commuter vehicle. It might not fit in everyone’s budget, but Howard isn’t everyone. He’s a former NBA Superstar and Finals champion. He definitely enjoys the finer things in life.
Shaq’s Polaris Slingshot Has An 18-Speaker Sound System
Former NBA star Shaq has one of the most interesting cars on the block, a 2015 Polaris Slingshot. With three wheels and a hugely customized interior, this open-air vehicle is a masterpiece fit for a king.
The black and red car is outfitted with an 18-speaker sound system, has no roof or doors, and can hit 60 miler-per-hour in just under five seconds.
Shaq’s Rolls Royce Phantom Cost $500,000
With an estimated net worth of $400 million, Shaq can pretty much buy as many vehicles as he wants. This $500,000 Rolls Royce Phantom is no exception to the rule. This particular Phantom was purchased by Shaq during an NBA All-Star Weekend event.
Like his Lamborghini, Shaq’s Rolls Royce has been customized to the big man’s most extravagant desires. While we don’t know the specifics, we’re guessing that means added legroom and possibly even a one-of-a-kind paint job.
Michael Beasley’s Bentley Continental Flying Spur Cost $200,000
During his rookie year in the NBA, Michael Beasley had more money than he knew what to do with. With a love for cars, he went all in, buying nine, including this $200,000 Bentley Continental Flying Spur.
Since making that purchase, the reality of money management sunk into the NBA star. He no longer owns the Flying Spur, telling USA Today he only has one car, “a Tahoe… I’ve got priorities. Back then, I didn’t have any responsibilities. It was easy to spend the money. To learn the value of a dollar, you have to spend one. I didn’t know the value of a dollar back then.”
