Today we’re taking a look at the hottest NBA WAGs of the 2014-15 season. Exciting, right?
(For the uninitiated, WAGs is an acronym for wives and girlfriends. Now you know.)
Of course, in theory it would be nice to do a list of the hottest NBA WAGs at the beginning of the season, as a kind of season kickoff celebration. But in reality, it’s better to do it a few weeks in.
For starters, compiling data for such a list requires crowd-sourcing (i.e. scouring social media and the blogosphere for tips), and people don’t follow NBA players not named LeBron that closely during the offseason. More importantly, it’s a lot easier to figure out if player is actually “dating” somebody (which we define very loosely as “hooking up on a semi-regular basis”) when they’ve settled into a routine.
So who’s on the list this year? Well, as you would expect given the natural ebb and flow of the NBA dating scene, there are a few familiar faces, and there are a few not-so-familiar ones. However, whether old or new, all the faces are very attractive. So you should definitely take a look.
Everyone felt so bad for poor Julius Randle when the 7th overall pick out of Kentucky broke his leg in his very first game for the Lakers a few weeks ago. However, now that you've seen his girlfriend, Kendra, I bet you don't feel quite so bad for him.
21. Kendra Shaw (Julius Randle)
I don't know for sure how Cory Joseph and Stefanie Gazmin met, but they're both from Toronto. So let's go ahead and assume they are high school sweethearts. Cute, right?
Anyway, we don't know much about Stefanie because, unlike other idiots, she knows how to use privacy settings on her social media accounts. However, I did find an old article about her playing basketball for John Paul II high school in Toronto. So maybe that's how they met—through basketball.
20. Stefanie Gazman (Cory Joseph)
Nick Young, a.k.a. Swaggy P, started dating Iggy Azalea last spring, right before she became a household name thanks to her hit single, "Fancy."
Thanks to TMZ, everybody knows what Nick Young sees in her. (Hint: it's her ass.) The bigger question that still remains is, what does Iggy Azalea see in Nick Young?
19. Iggy Azalea (Nick Young)
Meet Tony Parker's new French wife, Axelle Francine. They got hitched this summer. I'm sure he won't cheat on her like he cheated on Eva Longoria...with the wife of former teammate Brent Barry.
No I'm just kidding. He will totally cheat on her. He's French and he's an NBA player.
18. Axelle Francine (Tony Parker)
LeBron James accessory Kevin Love is dating Cody Horn. You probably don't recognize her from this Ralph Lauren add, but you might recognize her as Magic Mike's girlfriend in (duh) Magic Mike.
17. Cody Horn (Kevin Love)
Carmelo Anthony's wife La La (real name Alani Anthony) has been a fixture on NBA WAGs lists for years. I see no good reason why that trend should be discontinued.
16. La La Vazquez (Carmelo Anthony)
Actress Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have been together for several years now. However, they made things official by getting hitched over the summer.
15. Gabrielle Union (Dwyane Wade)
Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris is married to Meghan Allen. She's a former Playboy Playmate, so if you want to see some naked pictures of her, that's doable. (If you don't know how to make it happen, I'm not going to be the one to tell you.)
14. Meghan Allen (Devin Harris)
Ayesha and Stephen Curry might just be the classiest couple in the NBA. When the high school sweethearts tied the knot in 2011, they didn't go to Williams-Sonoma and register for overpriced ice cream makers and fondue sets. Understanding that they were extremely wealthy and could just buy that crap for themselves, they instead asked guests to donate to ThanksUSA.org, which supports the families of active military personnel.
13. Ayesha Curry (Stephen Curry)
It's not a very fun time to be a New York Knick, because the Knicks suck. At least Iman Shumpert has recording artist/actress Teyana Taylor to come home to. Or visit. Or whatever their arrangement is.
12. Teyana Taylor (Iman Shumpert)
Tim Duncan and his college sweetheart wife divorced a few years back. However, the most boring superstar in the NBA didn't waste much time finding a sexy new girlfriend. Her name Vanessa Macias. She's a former reality TV star (The Amazing Race) who now serves as "in-game host" (i.e. jumbotron talking lady) for he San Antonio Missions, the Padres' double-A affiliate.
11. Vanessa Macias (Tim Duncan)
Andrew Wiggins has a lot going for him. He was the number one pick in the 2014 NBA draft, he stands to make hundreds of millions of dollars in his career, and, right now, he's dating model Alex Reid.
10. Alex Reid (Andrew Wiggins)
Despite numerousallegations of infidelity and separation over the years—some of which were true—Kobe and Vanessa are still together. I guess when a guy makes $30 million a year and a gal has a rack like that, you find a way to work sh*t out.
9. Vanessa Bryant (Kobe Bryant)
Jason Kidd is a coach now, not a player. But his (second) wife, Porschla, is still really hot, and she's still an NBA WAG, so she's still on the list.
8. Porschla Coleman (Jason Kidd)
It's very difficult to find any info about model Sabina Gadecki and Warriors power forward David Lee. However, I did find an article about her that says she still splits her time between Los Angeles and San Francisco, so I'll go ahead and assume they're still an item until somebody proves otherwise.
7. Sabina Gadecki (David Lee)
Fitness model Michelle Game was Charlie Villanueva's girlfriend. However, he recently came the conclusion that he likes it, which in led him to put a ring on it. So now she's his fiancé.
6. Michelle Game (Charlie Villanueva)
J.J. Barea used to be married to Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2006, Zuleyka Rivera. However, now they're divorced, and Barea is dating Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2011, Viviana Ortiz.
Obviously, Barea has a thing for Miss Universe contestants.
5. Viviana Ortiz (J.J. Barea)
The Toronto Raptors' Landry Fields didn't mess around with Elaine Alden. He knew he had a good thing going, so he popped the question. The two are now married with a rug rat...and Elaine Alden is still really hot.
4. Elaine Alden (Landry Fields)
Klay Thompson is a very lucky man, and not just because he recently signed a four-year, $70 million contract. His girlfriend, model and Instagram celebrity Hannah Stocking, is absolutely out of this world.
3. Hannah Stocking (Klay Thompson)
Things must be pretty serious between Serge Ibaka and singer Keri Hilson. She's spent a lot of time in Oklahoma watching him play the last few years.
2. Keri Hilson (Serge Ibaka)
In 2011, Atlanta Hawks star forward Al Horford tied the knot with Dominican beauty queen-turned-singer Amelia Vega. Obviously, when it comes to looks, Horford could not possibly have done any better.
