The NBA is an intoxicating environment – many players who enter the big leagues come from humble backgrounds, playing their sport of choice, and are thrust into the limelight when they make a professional team straight out of college – or before, in some cases. That kind of fame and fortune leads many players to date an endless string of beautiful women just because they can. Every man has different tastes, but most NBA wives and girlfriends have one thing in common – they’re really, really, ridiculously gorgeous. A baller wants a beautiful babe on his arm, and his wife or girlfriend needs to fulfill that role. While shows like Basketball Wives might make it seem like the WAG lifestyle is all about drama and diamonds, one thing is for sure, it’s not always easy being an NBA WAG. While some women seem to be in it for the fame and money, there are others who probably wish the paparazzi wouldn’t get quite so close when they’re just showing up to root on their husband or boyfriend.
True, some NBA superstars seem to treat beautiful women like toys, being seen with a new one at every game and trading them in on a weekly basis. However, there are an equal amount of NBA players who show up to events with the same woman every time. They only have eyes for their wife, and she reciprocates by keeping herself trim and groomed for her man.
Regardless of money, cars, houses and bling, most NBA players want a woman they’re excited to come home to after tiring games and long road trips. Whether they’re the flavor of the week or the wife of ten years, here are 25 of the hottest NBA WAGs that you very well might see sitting courtside at their main man’s games.

Amelia Vega is the wife of Al Horford, but she certainly doesn’t need her man to introduce her into the limelight – she was at the center of the public’s attention in 2003 when she was crowned Miss Universe. Come on, how many guys get to say they're dating Miss Universe. Well played Al Hordford. She married Horford in 2011 and the couple have a child together.
11 Crystal Renee (girlfriend of Kevin Durant)
10 Hazel Renee (girlfriend of John Wall)
9 Maliah Michel (girlfriend of James Harden)

When James Harden gets home from a long day running up and down the court, he doesn’t want to have a complex conversation with his physicist girlfriend. He wants a nice welcome home and a relaxing evening, something that his girlfriend Maliah Michel likely provides, as she's a exotic dancer. Maliah isn’t likely to get too starstruck by the NBA superstar, as her dating rap sheet includes several rappers and athletes.
8 Callie Rivers (girlfriend of Paul George)
Callie Rivers has been linked to basketball player Paul George, who has faced his fair share of scandal due to his sexual liaisons. He currently plays with the Indiana Pacers, but Rivers’ father Doc is coach to the Los Angeles Clippers. If the couple were to stay together, George wouldn’t be the only athletically inclined of the two, as Callie is also involved in a sport – volleyball. She played for the University of Florida, as well as professionally in Puerto Rico.
7 Masha Kirilenko (wife of Andrei Kirilenko)

Masha Kirilenko is the exact opposite of controlling basketball wives who restrict what their husbands can or cannot do when they’re gone at away games. She’s notorious for giving her husband one free ‘cheat’ card a year to do what – and who - he wants with. The blonde bombshell has been in the public eye for awhile, as she’s a pop superstar in her native country of Russia.
6 Savannah Brinson (wife of LeBron James)
Savannah and LeBron are basically the golden couple of basketball. His meteoric rise to fame means girls are throwing themselves at him in every city he travels to, but he remains dedicated to his high school sweetheart Savannah. The couple, who have two kids together, eventually tied the knot and are going stronger than ever.
5 Adrienne Bosh (wife of Chris Bosh)
Adrienne Bosh is married to everyone’s favorite Heat velociraptor look-alike, Chris Bosh. A former model from Venezuela, Adrienne is primarily known as a WAG – and a scandalous one at that. She came into the public eye when rapper Lil’ Wayne began to make allegations about having engaged in various activities with a younger Mrs. Bosh. The couple took it in stride and remains devoted to one another, as you’ll see in any press photo of the two together – with Chris staring down at her from way, way above, of course.

4 Ayesha Curry (wife of Stephen Curry)
Stephen Curry met his now-wife Ayesha when they were just young kids at church. At the time, their families teased the reluctant duo about how cute they’d be together, and now they’re happily married. The Curry clan is a homey and loving bunch, often found staying in with labradoodle Reza and daughter Riley. They’re expecting another child in July, and both their careers on the rise. While Curry breaks records in the NBA, Ayesha, an actress by trade, is working on building her YouTube channel and creating a future cooking show.
3 Whitney Wonnacott (wife of Jimmer Fredette)

The old tale of the cheerleader and the athlete. The two first met when Fredette was a college player on the rise and Whitney was the cheerleader on the sidelines at BYU. Fredette married Wonnacott in 2012 and the rest is history. The former cheerleader has a degree in broadcast journalism from Brigham Young University and may one day be on the sidelines in a professional capacity rather than just as a supportive wife.
2 Hannah Stocking (girlfriend of Klay Thompson)
1 Gabrielle Union (wife of Dwyane Wade)
It’s a toss up between who’s the more well known of this couple – basketball superstar Dwyane Wade or his wife, silver screen staple Gabrielle Union. Union got her start in teen movies Bring It On and 10 Things I Hate About You before moving on to meatier roles. Her Hollywood career shows no signs of slowing down and she’s graced the covers of countless magazines. She married Wade in 2014 and, while her busy shooting schedule likely means she can’t make every single game, she’s likely rooting on her hubby from afar when she can’t make it courtside.
