Complex named Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers as the best rapper among current NBA players. The point guard, who goes by the hip-hop pseudonym Dame D.O.L.L.A., overtook the likes of Lonzo Ball, Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Dwight Howard in the ranking.

Per the article, Dame is the NBA rap king for having "a more than respectable flow, interesting lyrics that reflect his life, and actually puts out albums that receive positive reviews." If this is the first time you've heard about Dame's rap career, then it's time you give his third and latest album a listen below.

Iman Shumpert takes second place in the list, followed by Marvin Bagley. Two-time NBA champion Durant places fifth, with Lou Williams, Lance Stephenson, and Aaron Gordon, who recently released a diss track over the 2020 dunk contest, following behind. Andre Dummond and JaVale McGee also made the list.

Aside from the abovementioned, other familiar names who dipped their toes into the hip-hop culture are former NBA players Shaquille O'Neal, Allen Iverson, Metta World Peace, and the late Kobe Bryant.
