LeBron James tops the list of the 10 most-followed NBA players on Instagram

Indeed, some of your favorite NBA stars are ordinary people like you and I. They love social media and interacting with other people. When players step on the hardwood to captivate fans with their tantalizing skill sets and eye-popping athleticism, they want you to marvel at their craft and give you your money’s worth.

But when those players step away from the court, they carry on with their lives. A lot of them have families of their own, friends, and other hobbies and interests away from basketball.
