New research released today has revealed the most searched for basketball players in 170 different countries around the world.

The research, compiled by SportsShoes.com, uses Google search data to find out which athletes are searched for the most in different countries, revealing the most sought after male and female cyclists around the globe.

Top Basketballers

American born LeBron James is considered by many as one of the greatest NBA players of all time, which is perhaps why he tops the list as the most searched for basketball player of all time. James is the only player to have won NBA championships with three franchises as a Finals MVP and has won two Olympic gold medals.

Sue Bird nets the most searched female position on the list. The Israeli-American WNBA player has the most assists in the league’s history and is one of just eleven women in history who have won the WNBA Championship (4), an Olympic medal (4), the NCAA Championship (2), and the FIBA World Cup (4).
