While beauty is more than what meets the eye, most people are more concerned with how they appear on the outside, which is why lists of the world's most beautiful and ugliest people exist. Unfortunately, this logic has been reduced to the basketball court, and the ugliest NBA players are listed below.

People are classified as ugly, gorgeous, or handsome in today's culture based on criteria. The following list is the 15 ugliest NBA players of all time.

Who is the ugliest NBA player?

Many publications have lists of the ugliest NBA players, but this piece will concentrate on the ugliest NBA players right now.

15. Gheorghe Muresan

He was born on February 14, 1971. He stands 2.31 meters tall. As a Centre, he played for the Washington Bullets, New Jersey Jets, and Maryland Nighthawks.

This towering and lanky NBA player could easily fit into the all-time tallest NBA lineup. But, aside from his intimidating stature, his facial features don't help: small, beady, half-closed eyes that appear to hide behind a large nose.

14. Sam Cassell

He was born on November 18, 1969, and stands 1.19 meters tall. He was a point guard for the Houston Rockets, New Jersey Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers, and Boston Celtics.

Sam Cassell's facial characteristics defy human standards due to his head shape, teeth, lower jaw, or minor split eyes.

13. Reggie Miller

He was born on August 24 1965 and stands at the height of 2.01 meters. He was a guard with the Indiana Pacers.

Reggie Miller is remembered for his excellent skills on the court and for succeeding at 'trash-talking' and making it to practically any list that includes the words 'ugly' and 'NBA.'

12. Popeye Jones

Popeye Jones was born on June 17, 1970, and is 2.03 metres tall. He is a power forward who has played for Aresium Milano, the Dallas Mavericks, the Toronto Raptors, the Boston Celtics, the Denver Nuggets, the Washington Wizards, and the Dallas Mavericks, and the Golden State Warriors.

Unfortunately for him, we doubt that spinach could correct all of Popeye's visual flaws, such as his large ears, crooked smile, and crossed eyes.

11. Delonte West

He was born on July 26, 1983. He played as a point guard for the Boston Celtics, Seattle Supersonics, and Cleveland Cavaliers and stands 1.91 meters tall.

Delonte West may have been fearless and competent on the court, but he isn't particularly attractive. And he's going through a tough time right now. This former NBA star's decline was caused by substance addiction and mental illnesses.

10. Dennis Rodman

He was born on May 13, 1961. He is 2.01 meters tall and has played power forward for the Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks.

The Worm's parrot-like hair colours, crazy haircuts, innumerable tattoos and piercings covering his entire body, or controversial clothing can't hide the reality that he's naturally ugly.

But unfortunately, he seemed to have focused on making himself as unattractive as possible.

9. Scottie Pippen

He was born on September 25, 1965. He is a 2.03 meters tall small forward who has played for the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, and Portland Trail Blazers.

There's no denying it: Scottie is an unattractive man, despite his incredible athletic abilities on the court. His long, oddly shaped nose appears to be staring you down. His droopy eyelids almost go unnoticed since his nose draws the viewer's attention.

8. Tyrone Hill

He was born on March 19, 1968. He was a Power Forward for the Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, and Miami Heat, standing 2.06 meters tall.

According to everyone, Tyrone Hill appears to be a mummy because of his large nose, plump lips, and oddly curved ears.

7. Chris Kaman

He was born on April 28, 1982. He was a centre for the Los Angeles Clippers, New Orleans Hornets, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers, and Portland Trail Blazers, standing 2.13 meters tall.

On the other hand, this guy is not a sight to behold. His eyes appear to have been buried far beneath his nearly invisible brows. Moreover, while his beard appears to be standing the test of time, his hair is losing ground.

6. Noah, Joakim

He was born on February 25, 1985. He was a Center with the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Westchester Knicks, Memphis Grizzlies, and Los Angeles Clippers. He stands 2.11 meters tall.

5. Calvin Booth

He is a retired professional basketball player born on May 7, 1976. He stands 2.11 meters tall and has played for the Washington Wizards, Dallas Mavericks, Seattle SuperSonics, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Sacramento Kings as a power forward / centre.

Calvin's head and body appear to be in proportion. He had the most prolonged and flattest head and ears anyone has ever seen on the court. Unfortunately, his crooked teeth cap one of the ugliest heads in NBA history.

4. Anthony Davis

He was born on March 11, 1993. He is 2.08 meters tall and plays for the Los Angeles Lakers as a power forward/centre.

His eyebrows, which need solid genetic workings, make him one of the ugliest active NBA players. His brows and continually shocked expression make him ugly.

3. Andrei Kirilenko

He was born on February 18, 1981. He was a power forward / small forward for the Utah Jazz, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Brooklyn Nets, and his height is a stunning 2.06 meters.

Kirilenko, known for his obnoxious hairstyles and naturally obnoxious looks, also has one of the worst tattoos in the history of the NBA.

2. Michael Ruffin

He was born on January 21, 1977. His height is 2.06 meters, and he has played for the Chicago Bulls, Philadelphia 76ers, Caprabo Lleida, Utah Jazz, Washington Wizards, Milwaukee Bucks, and Portland Trail Blazers as a power forward / centre.

Unfortunately, Michael Ruffin isn't precisely a dashing prince. On the contrary, his head form and facial characteristics defy all human standards, which is why he is currently among the ugliest NBA players.

1. Marshall Donyell

He was born on May 18, 1973. He was a Power forward / Small forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State Warriors, Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls, Toronto Raptors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Seattle SuperSonics, and Philadelphia 76ers.

His height is a high 2.06 meters. It just doesn't feel right that his head isn't proportional to the rest of his body or his facial features. He is most probably the ugliest NBA player in 2022.

While the ugliest NBA players in the world suffer or take pride in it, some players enjoy attention for their good looks. However, regardless of how unattractive they are, these ugliest players in the NBA are only as excellent as their skills and personalities.
