Basketball has become a huge sport in countries all over the globe, and as a result, NBA players are some of the most famous athletes in the world. With all of that fame comes not only fortune, but also some really beautiful women, apparently! Check out some of the most attractive NBA WAGs today as we look at the wives and girlfriends of the best NBA players of recent years.
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union
The first of our NBA WAGs is a bit different than her contemporaries because she’s a famous person on her own, regardless of her relationship. That’s because it’s Gabrielle Union, star of films such as She’s All That and Bring It On.
She is still a huge star on TV and in movies, and began dating multiple time NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade back in 2009. The two have been together ever since and got married in 2014. Many people don’t realize that Gabrielle is actually 9 years older than Dwyane is!
Al Horford and Amelia Vega
Al Horford’s better half is one of the most stunning NBA WAGs out there. She’s Dominican model Amelia Vega, who won the title of Miss Dominican Republic in 2002. She would then go on to compete and win the Miss Universe title. Since then, she has also added singing and acting to her resume.
Al Horford was extremely lucky to win the heart of the six-foot-tall bombshell. She began dating the former Atlanta Hawks player and they got married in 2011. Since then, they’ve made the move to Massachusetts with their two children after Horford started playing for the Boston Celtics.
Steph Curry and Ayesha Curry
There are few stars bigger than Steph Curry in the NBA, so you might assume that once he became a superstar, he was all about dating actresses, singers, or models. That said, he’s actually known his wife Ayesha Curry since they were in high school!
They met while participating in a youth group in North Carolina and reconnected when Steph was in college. From there, they got married in 2011 and have been together ever since. She enjoys has even been on the Food Network as the host of her own show!
Tony Parker and Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria is one of those NBA WAGs who never needed an introduction. She has been acting ever since she first appeared on Beverly Hills, 90210, moving on to General Hospital and of course, her memorable nine-year run on Desperate Housewives.
She was quite smitten when she met Tony Parker, a San Antonio Spurs star of French descent, and the two got married in 2007 after dating for some time. Unfortunately, she filed for divorce after they separated in 2011.
Bradley Beal and Kamiah Adams
Bradley Beal is a shooting guard for the Washington Wizards, and he hit the jackpot when he started dating actress and model Kamiah Adams. Adams was known by many for the fact that she dated unfortunately named rapper Lil’ Fizz.
Adams didn’t stay with the rapper for long, of course. She then started dating Bradley Beal in 2015. They seem to be still going very strong today, and she’s more popular than ever, as well. She has nearly a million followers on Instagram, as a matter of fact.
LeBron James and Savannah Brinson James
Considering the LeBron James is the most famous basketball player in the world today, the story of his love affair with Savannah Brinson is relatively low-key, surprisingly. When he met her he wanted her number, but she vetoed that and took his instead.
Their first date wasn’t to a five-star restaurant, but an Outback Steakhouse. Then, they dated from there before getting married in 2013. The two of them now have three children together and aside from running the family, Savannah also runs a number of charitable programs.
Blake Griffin and Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner is another of the NBA WAGs that doesn’t need an introduction unless you’ve been living under a rock, or at least without TV and social media. She’s been a successful model and also appeared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, of course.
Jenner and Los Angeles Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin started dating back in 2017, when they were first seen together publicly. Unfortunately, Blake moved to Detroit and it seems the relationship didn’t last.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian…and Tristan Thompson
Kendall Jenner isn’t the only Kardashian who would be romantically linked to not one, but two NBA players. Her big sister Khloe did the same thing, having first had a doomed relationship with former Los Angeles Lakers standout Lamar Odom.
The two tied the knot in 2009, but unfortunately, it wasn’t to be. Lamar Odom had substance abuse issues throughout their marriage and eventually, they divorced in 2016. She didn’t wait long to meet a new player, Tristan Thompson.
Carmelo Anthony and La La Anthony
The ludicrously named La La Anthony is another woman who is much more than just one of those NBA WAGs, as she had her own career hosting shows on MTV and BET before she met Carmelo Anthony.
In 2007, Carmelo and La La had their first child together, and they wound up marrying three years later. She has since worked hard to develop her acting career, with performances on a number of TV series, including Power and Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.
Shaquille O’Neal and Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander
If you thought that reality TV was actually real, you’re going to be disappointed. Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander and the other beautiful women on Flavor of Love weren’t so much interested in dating Flavor Flav as they were getting on TV.
She would continue to star in reality shows such as I Love Money before eventually dating Shaquille O’Neal after he got divorced from his first wife. They lived together briefly near the end of his career, but they ultimately decided to break up in 2012.
Scottie Pippen and Larsa Younan
Scottie Pippen was extremely successful on the court, winning 6 NBA championships over his 17-year NBA career. He also has been very successful in relationships, as he has been married to Larsa Younan since 1997.
When the “Housewives” reality TV show craze began, the ageless Larsa was a part of the Miami version in 2011. After one season, she got out of that business but has remained in the public eye while running Scottie’s charitable foundation, the Pippen Foundation.
JJ Barea and Viviana Ortiz
JJ Barea is known as a trailblazer of sorts, even though he actually plays for the Dallas Mavericks. That’s because he’s perhaps the most successful Puerto Rican NBA player of all time. He’s won an NBA championship and had a 12-year NBA career, playing a key role for his team.
You could argue that he’s been even more successful off the court, having married the beautiful Viviana Ortiz. She was Miss Puerto Rico in 2011 and placed in the top 16 in the Miss Universe competition.
Matt Barnes (and Derek Fisher) and Gloria Govan
This love triangle is a little bit unfortunate. Gloria Govan was a star of the show Basketball Wives LA in 2011 after marrying Matt Barnes, who was a bit of a journeyman player, but was playing for the Los Angeles Lakers for a while at that time.
The two seemed very much in love, getting married in 2013 and having twin boys together, but they split in 2016. The word was that the main reason for the breakup was that Govan had been seeing Barnes’ former teammate, Derek Fisher.
Ray Allen and Shannon Walker Williams
Although not quite as famous as some of the other NBA WAGs on our list, Shannon Walker Williams was pretty successful as a singer and actor before meeting NBA star Ray Allen. She was even in a female R&B group, Shades.
In 2004, Shannon started dating Ray Allen. They hit it off and were married four years later, eventually having four kids together. Today, they live in Miami, where Allen last played. They are active in diabetes awareness campaigns.
Baron Davis and Isabella Brewster
Although she hasn’t been in front of the camera like her famous clients, Isabella Brewster has a lot more clout than many of our NBA WAGs because she works for the Creative Artists Agency. She once dated the likes of Russell Brand and Bradley Cooper, too.
In 2013, Brewster fell for former NBA star Baron Davis and got engaged to be married. In 2014, they tied the knot, but things didn’t work out as well as the couple had hoped. They had two children together, but Brewster eventually filed for divorce.
Chris Bosh and Adrienne Bosh
Chris Bosh first found fame as an NBA All-Star with the Toronto Raptors before joining pals Dwyane Wade and LeBron James with the Miami Heat. Adrienne was happy to just date around in her younger years, having been linked with stars such as Lil’ Wayne and NBA guard Delonte West.
Like Bosh himself, however, Adrienne decided to settle down after some time, and the two fell in love. The two got married in 2011, when Bosh was about to win two championships in Miami.
Eric Bledsoe and Morgan Poole Bledsoe
Unlike many of the basketball players and NBA WAGs on our list, Eric Bledsoe and Morgan Poole began dating way back in high school! They met in 2008 while attending Parker High School in Alabama.
They had two children together already before Eric asked Morgan to marry him, and they got married just a year after that. An NBA career is full of all kinds of ups and downs, and they had a big change when he was traded from the Phoenix Suns to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Nick Young and Iggy Azalea
A few years ago, the love story between Nick Young and Iggy Azalea was quite famous. No one was sure how a player who wasn’t even a big star started dating the breakout rapper from Australia, but he wasn’t complaining while enjoying her fame..
It seemed like they were going to get married after they announced their engagement in 2015, but things didn’t go so well after that. Young’s teammate, D’Angelo Russell, released a video where Young bragged about cheating on Iggy.
Serge Ibaka and Keri Hilson
Keri Hilson is another of those NBA WAGs that is likely more well-known than her famous boyfriend was. Keri has been a part of a number of hit songs, including The Way I Are featuring Timbaland and Pretty Girl Rock, making her a well-known name in music.
It was back in 2012 when Hilson met Serge Ibaka, a power forward playing for the Oklahoma City Thunder. The two continued to date throughout his time with the team, but broke up in 2016, around the same time that Ibaka left Oklahoma to go play for the Orlando Magic.
Stephon Marbury and LaTasha Marbury
LaTasha Marbury is famous because she’s one of those NBA WAGs, since she was on the show Basketball Wives and all. Her husband is Stephon Marbury, who had a successful, yet somehow disappointing NBA career before moving on to find success in China since 2009.
Stephon Marbury has been able to rejuvenate his career while becoming the most successful foreign player in China ever, and since her appearances on Basketball Wives, LaTasha has been busy helping Stephon raise their two children, Xaviera and Stephon II.
Grant Hill and Tamia Hill
Tamia Hill may not be a megastar in the world of music, but she’s quite talented and very well-known to R&B fans. She has even earned Grammy nominations for her work, which includes the popular songs “Stranger In My House” and “Officially Missing You.”
She met Grant Hill early into his career and they got married in 1999. They have two children together, but it hasn’t stopped them from being successful in their careers. Today, Grant is done playing basketball, but has become a part-owner of the Atlanta Hawks.
Devin Harris and Meghan Allen
Meghan Allen had a pretty successful modeling career before she married NBA point guard Devin Harris. She appeared on shows such as Fear Factor before making multiple appearances in Playboy and doing a variety of other modeling jobs before meeting Harris.
However, they got together and she would eventually announce they were dating while on The Howard Stern Show, of all places. The two would marry four years later, tying the knot in 2013.
Gordon Hayward and Robyn Van Vliet
Robyn Van Vliet is quite an athlete herself, having been ranked the fourth best volleyball player in Indiana while helping her high school team win a state championship. Maybe that’s how she connected with Boston Celtics player Gordon Hayward, who she married in 2014.
Surprisingly enough, Robyn chose to pass up the opportunity to play college volleyball. She was already dating Gordon, however, and the year after she graduated high school, the two were already getting married!
Russell Westbrook and Nina Westbrook
Common interests can be a great foundation for any successful relationship – just ask Oklahoma City Thunder standout Russell Westbrook and his wife, Nina. The two of them met in college while playing for UCLA, and it seemed like it was an immediate case of head-over-heels love.
They dated until 2015, when they got married. Two years after that, they had their first child, Noah, the same year that Russell won the NBA MVP award. Russell used his speech to thank his wife profusely, and she runs the store The Little Ark in Oklahoma.
Iman Shumpert and Teyana Taylor
Teyana Taylor has been a part of the music business for quite some time now, having worked as a choreographer for Beyonce and others before getting her own record deal. She released her long-awaited debut album in 2014 and has been quite successful in her career so far.
Meanwhile, her husband’s career has been going well, too, as he won an NBA championship in 2016. That was the same year that the two were wed, as a matter of fact. They had their daughter a year before, named Iman “Junie” Tayla Shumpert.
Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian
Obviously, this one didn’t work out too well, as Kim Kardashian is now known for being one-half of a power couple with rapper and producer Kanye West. Many people forget that Kim had once married to Kris Humphries.
The relationship between Kim and Kris was weird from the start – he wasn’t even a particularly good player in the NBA, their marriage was barely long enough for the ink on the certificate to dry, and she even started dating Kanye before it was officially dissolved.
Tony Parker and Axelle Francine
If you ask future NBA Hall of Famer Tony Parker, all’s well that ends well. Sure, things didn’t go like he planned with sexy actress Eva Longoria, but he ended up with Axelle Francine, so he can’t complain, right?
Tony moves as fast in relationships as he did on the court, since that’s the same year he split with Eva. In 2014, Tony and Axelle married, welcoming their son, Josh, the same year. In 2016, they added another son, Liam.
Luka Dončić and Anamaria Goltes
Most of you might not know who Luka Dončić, especially if you solely follow the NBA and don’t venture into the European leagues. He’s pretty much an upstart rookie and was drafted last year by the Mavericks.
The Slovenia native has had quite the amazing career so far and we’re expecting to see him do great things in the NBA. He has already had massive success in the dating world as he is dating model Anamaria Goltes.
Kyle Kuzma and Katya Elise Henry
Kyle Kuzma is only 23-years-old, but he is definitely on top of the world. He made his debut with the Los Angeles Lakers back in 2017 and has since been recognized as a player with great potential.
In 2018, he was picked for the All-Rookie First Team. It’s a huge honor for such an upstart. He is currently dating Katya Elise Henry who is an Instagram fitness model who has quite the following.
James Harden and Ashanti
The world over knows Ashanti as the R&B star that became popular in 2001 when she got a major record deal and sang on the song What’s Luv? She definitely isn’t so much in the limelight these days but is still doing good.
The popular singer is currently dating James Harden of the Houston Rockets. Despite being almost 10 years his senior, the two have still managed to make their relationship work.
Klay Thompson and Laura Harrier
29-year-old Klay Thompson has been playing for the Golden State Warriors since he made his NBA debut back in the year 2011. Given the amount of success he has found with the team, it is no wonder he has stayed loyal.
He helped with them the NBA championship in 2015, 2017 and in 2018. Looks like he is just hitting is height. He is currently dating Laura Harrier who is best known for acting in The Black Klansman.
Paul George and Daniela Rajic
Paul George has had an amazing nine-year career with the NBA thus far. He did great things for the Indiana Pacers between 2010 and 2017 and now he is making an impact with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
He has played in the NBA All-Star team and impressive six times. He is currently seeing Daniela Rajic who is a model and adult dancer. They have been dating since 2017 and already have two daughters together.
Joel Embiid and Anne De Paula
Joel Embiid is from Cameroon and basketball wasn’t his first passion in life. When he was younger, he actually wanted to become a professional volleyball in Europe.
He eventually came to America where he excelled in basketball. In 2014, he was drafted into the 76ers. He is currently dating a model named Anne De Paula. Looks like things are getting serious between them.
Derrick Rose and Mieka Reese
30-year-old Derrick Rose has had a massively successful 11-year career. He first got drafted by the Chicago Bulls back in 2008 and stayed with them for eight years. He has spent the last three seasons jumping from team to team.
He has a strong religious upbringing and it is something that he isn’t shy about. He and his longtime Mieka Reese had a child together named Derrick Jr. in 2012. Here they are above all pictured together.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Mariah Riddlesprigger
Originally from Athens, Greece, Giannis Antetokounmpo is known by basketball fans as the Greek Freak. He played basketball in Greece for a season before being drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Greek Freak is seeing massive success in the world of the NBA. He even has a girlfriend named Mariah Riddlesprigger. She is a Fresno, California native who is a top college volleyball player.
Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner
Most people wouldn’t have guessed it, but Ben Simmons is an Australian native. The 22-year-olds career got its start back in 2016 when he was drafted by the 76ers. His life has since taken huge turns.
He is currently dating Kendall Jenner. The world knows her as one of the staples of social media modeling and for being related to the notorious Kardashian family. Let’s see how long this relationship can last.
Kevin Durant and Cassandra Anderson

He is currently in a relationship with a woman named Cassandra Anderson. She is a real estate agent and the two, despite having their ups and downs are in a very serious relationship.

The man made a big impact in 2015 by actually winning the NBA Championship. He has also won in the love department seeing as he’s dating an Instagram model by the name of Chantel Jeffries.
Kemba Walker and Ashtyn Montgomery
For eight years we have been watching Kemba Walker kick butt for the Hornets. He’s never delivered an NBA Championship to his team, but seeing as he’s played on the NBA All-Stars for three years in a row, we know he’s amazing.
The Bronx native is also pretty good when it comes to relationships. He has been in a relationship with Ashtyn Montgomery for years and we’re willing to bet that they will be married soon.
Kevin Love and Kate Bock
Kevin Love was a very good NBA player from the beginning of his career back with the Minnesota Timberwolves, but he really gained notoriety when he moved on to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Kate was a Canadian-born fashion model when the two met, and she had already been in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. The two have been together for several years now and she continues to model, having appeared in Maxim and in ads for Victoria’s Secret.
Anthony Davis and Marlen
When it comes to the top players in the New Orleans Pelican, you can’t get any better than Anthony Davis. While he hasn’t exactly garnered the team an NBA Championships, he has been selected as an All-Star player.
That in itself is a major honor. He does currently have a girlfriend, but not much is known about her besides that her name is Marlen and that she is having his baby. She manages to usually stay out of the limelight.
Tiana White and Zion Williamson
Zion and Tiana White started seeing each other back in the days of Spartanburg Day School. In this teen-movie classic, he was a basketball player while she was a cheerleader.
They’ve kept their relationship fairly private, though we know for sure that they’re going long distance. This is not an easy task for any couple, so we wish them the best of luck.
Kayla Wallace and Isaiah Thomas
Isaiah Thomas of the Cleveland Cavaliers married his longtime girlfriend Kayla Wallace a few years ago. Kayla preferred to stay out of the limelight by pursuing a degree in education, though it is unclear whether or not she actually puts it to use.
She is the daughter of army veteran Theodore William Wallace, something that she is beyond proud of.

He has also worked in the Phillippines (though he ended up being too tall to play) as well as in Turkey.
Jackie Christie and Doug Christie
Jackie and Doug Christie know how to make a marriage work. Over twenty years of marriage has not hindered them in the slightest.
They have not been victims of the usual affairs of the world of basketball, instead staying faithful to each other. Doug Christie is currently a commentator for the Sacramento Kings on NBC Sports California.

Los Angeles Clippers small forward Kawhi Leonard has already been NBA champion twice before the age of thirty. He met his wonderful girlfriend Kishele Shipley along the way and the two have already welcomed two children into the world.
