It’s no surprise that most NBA players are fans of tattoos. A lot of them enter the league without them, but have a couple of them within a few years. Of course, some tattoos are amazing, while others are just complete misses. These players have some great tattoos, or a great story to go with it.
Jeremy Lamb – Dagger and Bucket
Lamb has a lot of tattoos, but the coolest ones are one both of his hands. One the left one, he has a bucket and on his right hand, his shooting hand, Lamb has a dagger. The Bucket stands for the fact that he scores a lot, which can also be called making buckets, and the dagger signifies that he’s good in making clutch shots late in the game.
Kyle Kuzma – Space Jam
Kuzma’s newest tattoo says Kuz’ secret stuff. It’s a reference to Space Jam, where Bugs Bunny shows a can that says Michael’s secret stuff.
Wilson Chandler – Juggernaut
Chandler got a huge tattoo of Juggernaut, one of the characters in the Marvel Universe, on his back.
Carmelo Anthony – WB
No, Carmelo Anthony isn’t a huge fan of Warner Bros, but his tattoo stands for West Baltimore, the place where he grew up.
Blake Griffin – City View
Griffin has one of the most minimalistic tattoos in the NBA, as it depicts two children on a tree branch looking out over the city.
LeBron James got this tattoo after he was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2002.
Redick has a lot of religious tattoos. On his left arm, he has the first three verses of Psalm 40, while he now has a sleeve on his right arm. There, four evangelical symbols are depicted, that all signify a different characteristic of Christianity.
