Thanks to social media, the term WAG has taken on a life of its' own now that we have more access to professional athletes personal lives thanks to things like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter. It simply means, Wives or Girlfriends, and is referring to the women that date pro athletes. The entire phrase was coined during the 2010 World Cup when the WAGs of Team England were spending their free time out on the town, partying it up.
Since then, it has turned into a term of endearment and should never be considered demeaning or insulting. It is a term given to a woman that is being praised for two things, being among the most beautiful women in the world and also because she is dating an athlete. It gives another avenue for a woman to show how much they do for their man and that they are not just sitting around the house all day spending their money.
Some of the hottest WAGs in the entire sports world belong to the NBA, where basketball players have showcased just how important it is to be rich and famous. Klay Thompson might have been able to get women without playing basketball but could he land the Hannah Storm types? Doubtful. Not without at least a few years of NBA experience behind him to boost his profile.
On that note, let's take a look at the 15 basketball WAGs who are Hot AF.
15 Robyn Hayward (Married to Gordon Hayward)
This summer is going to be the most important of Gordon Hayward’s NBA career. He has a chance to sign with just about anyone that can afford him so it is vital that he makes a choice that will propel his career and not set him back a few years. The odds are that he signs with the Boston Celtics to reunite with his former head coach at Butler, Brad Stevens. They can afford him and wouldn’t it be nice to play for a team that is currently in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Robyn Hayward is lucky enough to experience this ride too. But long before she became known as Gordon’s wife, she was simply called Robyn Van Vilet. She was nothing more than a recent high school graduate that was planning on going to beauty school when she met him. Five months after their first date, the couple was engaged. That was back in 2013.
14 Kayla Wallace (Married to Isaiah Thomas)
If there is anyone in the NBA to idolize, it should be Isaiah Thomas. He has dealt with all kinds of adversity throughout his career but never gave up. Like when he was drafted by the Sacramento Kings in 2011 and fought his way into the starting lineup during his rookie season. He never got the respect he deserved until he got to Boston and became the Celtics biggest star.
He also ended up landing one of the most amazingly beautiful WAGs on the market, Kayla Wallace. He even married her last summer and can now call her his wife. The happy couple have become one of the NBA’s leading power couples now that Isaiah Thomas has become a star of his own.
They met a long time before that and began a relationship that has turned into a Hollywood romance, a story of love that has captivated NBA fans across the country.
13 Kamiah Adams (Dating Bradley Beal)
The Washington Wizards are nearly ready to compete for a title. They have a couple of key pieces but are still a player or two away from being able to compete in the Eastern Conference. Just a few weeks ago, Bradley Beal put together some of his greatest performances ever when he dropped 33 points in Game six of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals and then 38 points during Game seven.
For the past few years, Bradley Beal has been loyal to just one woman, Kamiah Adams. The two started dating shortly after she broke it off with Lil’ Fizz while starring on the VH1 reality show, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. She became known as one of the sexiest ladies on the show and has become quite the looker courtside at Washington Wizards games.
Kamiah was even spotted at the Wizards-Cavaliers game when LeBron James hit a game-tying three point shot to send the game into overtime. Her shock and awe became an internet sensation.
12 Shay Mitchell (Dating Jimmy Butler)
Shay Mitchell doesn’t look 30 years old, but she is and has been since April 10th. The Pretty Little Liars actress has become one of the hottest new stars in Hollywood. The Canadian born heartthrob got her big break on the same show she is on today. As her fame continues to rise, so does her WAG profile thanks to her current relationship with Chicago Bulls superstar Jimmy Butler.
Jimmy Butler is on the verge of becoming the biggest star in a Bulls uniform since the good ole days of Michael Jordan but is lacking the teammates he needs to get him there. If he can figure out a way to win while living in the big shadow left behind by Air Jordan, then he can bring the Bulls back to the top of a weaker Eastern Conference.
For now, he will just have to settle for making All-Star teams and dating super hot celebrities like Shay Mitchell.
11 Kylie Bossie (Dating Tim Hardaway Jr)
When Tim Hardaway Jr. was drafted in the first round of the 2013 draft by the New York Knicks, his entrance into the NBA was not as smooth as he originally planned. He spent his rookie season struggling for some playing time and eventually developed a viable shot that turned him into a 10.2 points per game scoring guard. The next season he found himself getting more starts but his numbers took a dip and was eventually sent to Atlanta where he now plays. Last season, he averaged a career best, 14.5 points per game, adding another 2.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists.
While his game on the court is slowly progressing, and turning him into a better player, it has little effect on what he is doing in his personal life.
Personally, he has done more than fine, he has done amazing. His girlfriend, Kylie Bossie, is gorgeous and, before she locked her Instagram account, was the queen of posting selfies. Maybe she will have a change of heart next year and give the fans what they all want.
10 Alex Reid (Dating Andrew Wiggins)
In three seasons, Andrew Wiggins has turned into the stud athlete the Minnesota Timberwolves were expecting him to become. The former 2015 NBA Rookie of the Year turned out his best season of his career this past year after improving across the board, in just about every single category.
He finished the 2016-17 season averaging 23.6 points (career best), 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.0 steal per game. The former first overall draft pick has truly become a superstar and he just turned 22 years old a few months ago.
As far as dating is concerned, he has been dating Alex Reid for as long as we can recall reporting about it. Reid is not as well-known in the United States but that is mainly because she has joined a K-pop girl group in Japan called BP Rania. Her stardom has exploded over there and she is now becoming the face of the genre.
9 Amber Alvarez (Married to DeAndre Jordan)
If there was one player on this list that should be considered the most improved, it is DeAndre Jordan. He has gone from just being an amazing athlete to becoming a legitimate star at the center position. This past season, he found himself earning his first ever All-Star selection too.
His improvements have been easy to see too. He went from single digit averages per game to going for double-doubles each night. This past season he averaged 12.7 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game.
On the other hand, he has also found himself improving in his dating life and is now attached at the hip of super sexy fashion model Amber Alvarez. The gorgeous supermodel is always posting the greatest pictures on the internet and quite possibly could break it one day. The two have been dating for awhile now and could be heading for an altar soon.
8 Gabrielle Union (Married to Dwyane Wade)
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have become one of the legendary NBA couples having been together since 2009. They eventually got married and truly become the best looking couple in the NBA. It does not hurt that Gabrielle Union is 44 years old and remains one of Hollywood's sexiest stars. Her age not being a factor, she has, and always will be, a favorite WAG in the NBA.
D-Wade, as Dwyane Wade is better known as, left Miami this past summer to join his hometown team, the Chicago Bulls. He helped lead them to the playoffs this year and even had them scaring the Boston Celtics. At 35 years old, D-Wade continues to be a star and averaged 18.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 43.4% from the field and 31% from beyond the arc, one of his best shooting seasons ever.
If he can continue running things in Chi-town, maybe we will get another few seasons of his funny back-and-forth banter on Twitter with his wife Gabrielle Union which has become one of the funniest things we have heard this past season.
7 Meghan Allen (Married to Devin Harris)
Since 2004, Devin Harris has hustled and fought his way into the starting lineup for several NBA teams. He became his career with the Dallas Mavericks and after a few seasons, wound up playing for the New Jersey Nets. From there, he played a few more years and then headed to Utah where he became one of the Jazz's leading scorers in his first season.
After his stint with the Jazz, he did a season with the Atlanta Hawks before going back to the team that he began his career with, the Dallas Mavericks.
Now, 33 years old, Devin Harris is finding himself battling for minutes, having only started 3 games in the past four seasons. The good news for him is that when he retires, he gets to spend each day with the beautiful Playboy model, Meghan Harris, formerly Allen. She became her career as a Playboy cybermodel and quickly rose to fame after her appearance on the Howard Stern Show where she talked about her relationship with him. They are married and remain together today.
6 Hazel Renee (Dating John Wall)
Leave it to John Wall to show-off his amazingly stunning girlfriend, Hazel Renee, all the chances he can get. She is more than just a good looking woman too. Besides being a model, Hazel Renee is a recording artist that has music out on iTunes right now. She has been dating John Wall for quite some time and has taken the role of setting him straight.
John Wall spent the past couple of seasons dating just about anyone he could and his dating history features nearly ten different women from his past that he has dated since entering the NBA.
As his relationship with Hazel continues to grow, so does his NBA profile, which was proven this past season. Besides his great performances in the postseason, John Wall spent the past regular season averaging 23.1 points, 10.7 assists, 2 steals, and 4.2 rebounds per game, turning in one of the best point guard performances in the league.
After a disappointing Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, it has left a bad taste in Walls mouth and he will return next season better than ever, ready to take on the Eastern Conference.
5 Viviana Ortiz (Married to J.J. Barea)
Who is J.J. Barea?
J.J. Barea is a Puerto Rican guard that has earned himself a role in the NBA as a role player. He is the type of guy you sign to backup your starting guards, to give them a few extra minutes of rest without having to downgrade tremendously. He did it nicely and has played for both the Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks. Of the 695 games he played in, he only started in 91 of them, as a necessity due to injuries or what not.
This past season he averaged 10.9 points and 5.5 assists, which is one of his best seasons of his career. It is not too shabby for a 32 year old veteran who recently just got married to his second wife, another amazing beauty.
J.J. Barea was once married to the former Miss Universe 2006 Zuleyka Rivera too. After that marriage ended, he quickly found himself dating another former Miss Universe, this time, however, she was just the Puerto Rico Miss Universe in 2011, it was Viviana Ortiz.
4 Giselle Ramirez (Dating Javale McGee)
Javale McGee has become one of the biggest names in the NBA thanks to Shaq's admiration with his constant struggles dribbling the ball or dunking it under pressure. Javale has become a joke on NBA on TNT and they showcase his turnovers all the time, making sure to point out that he is not very good.
He had one good season where his popularity rose thanks to his insane athletic ability which eventually led to his entrance into the All-Star Slam Dunk contest. It also led to a massive contract worth over $40 million. He then ended up crashing and burning, nearly falling off the map. His career 7.8 points, 5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game are not worth nearly the $52 million he has earned throughout his career but we are not signing the checks so what do we know.
At some point in his career, however, he ran into Giselle Ramirez and improved his life instantaneously. The gorgeous UCLA alumni is now a very successful real estate agent in LA where she lives.
3 Hunter Mar (Dating Zach LaVine)
If Zach LaVine was healthy this past season, he would have turned in his greatest season of his career. He was already producing more points, rebounds, steals, and blocks per game than in his first two seasons. This past year alone, he averaged 18.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. The best thing about Zach LaVine is that he is young. At 21 years old, he has plenty of time to get even better, something that is scary considering how he plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves, a team that features Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Gorgui Dieng, Ricky Rubio, and Kris Dunn.
When he isn't starring in the NBA, he is dating beautiful women. Hunter Mar, his girlfriend, was also once a standout athlete in her own sport, soccer. She was once a soccer player at Seattle University but has since grown into a more popular role of being Zach LaVine's gorgeous eye candy and WAG.
2 Kari Klinkenborg (Dating Ryan Anderson)
Earlier this year, Ryan Anderson announced that he was engaged to the lovely actress Kari Klinkenborg. You might not know much about her, and that is fine because we are going to give you a nice breakdown of the newest Houston Rocket WAG, and future Mrs. Anderson.
Kari Klinkenborg has worked on television, acting in shows like Castle and Single Ladies, while also experiencing some of the featured film roles and working in The Bounce Back, Hot Girls, and The SpongBob Movie.
Ryan Anderson, her fiancee, in the meantime, has been busy on the NBA court playing with his latest team, the Houston Rockets. This past season was his worst since 2011 but he managed to reach the playoffs and almost got the Houston Rockets to the Western Conference Finals.
1 Amelia Horford (Married to Al Horford)
This past summer, when Al Horford was meeting with NBA teams to decide where he was going to end up signing with, rumors started to emerge that he was going to end up somewhere besides Boston. But then, in a 24-hour period, the rumors stopped with the announcement of his signing with the Boston Celtics and they immediately rose to the top of the Eastern Conference rankings, just behind the Cleveland Cavaliers and a few others.
But no one expected the Boston Celtics to turn around as quickly as they did. And their success has a lot to do with the arrival of Al Horford, who has become one of the league's best centers because of his ability to shoot from beyond the arc.
He is married to the beautiful Amelia Horford, formerly Amelia Vega, and he has not been happier.
