To be an NBA player comes with a slew of apparent benefits: wealth, fame, celebrity, and so on. One of the many perks of becoming a top athlete is the chance of meeting some of the world’s most beautiful, brilliant, and interesting women. Professional athletes have a long list of girlfriends and spouses, but all these NBA wives put past flings to shame.
Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union
Film star Gabrielle Union has acted in several of the biggest blockbuster movies since 1999. She appeared in “She’s All That” and “10 Aspects I Hate About You,” two classic teen films. Union’s big break came in 2000, when she was cast as Isis in the mega hit “Bring It On.”
Union has appeared in a number of films and tv shows since then. Union began dating Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade in 2009. Union was almost 9 years older to Wade, but their age gap didn’t prevent them from marrying in 2014.
Al Horford, Amelia Vega
Amelia Vega, a Dominican model, was crowned the Miss Dominican Republic in 2002. A year later, Vega represented her country on the largest platform in the world, winning Miss Universe 2003. She’s now expanded her resume to include singing, acting, and also a pilot’s license.
Vega, who stands 6’0′′ tall, has found the appropriate man to complement her long legs. She decided to marry Atlanta Hawks Top Al Horford in 2011. Horford has been raising his 2 kids in Massachusetts since signing with Boston Celtics in 2016.
