Top 15 Athletes You Wouldn't Want Dating Your Daughter

They say fatherhood changes a man. There once was a time you idolized the bachelor lives of professional athletes filled with partying, lounging on private yachts, and having an abundance of woman at your disposal. Okay you still do. But one thing’s for sure; if you have a daughter you sure as hell don’t want any of these pro athletes anywhere near her.

While most men would be thrilled at the idea of their daughters dating, and eventually marrying a professional athlete, whether it be due to financial security or the chance to score free tickets, there are certain exceptions. If a father sees his daughter bringing someone like Russell Wilson, Steph Curry or Jonathan Toews home, chances are he's going to be thrilled. They're admirable as athletes and upstanding citizens away from their sport. Certain athletes that one would admire on the field though may not be who fathers want with their daughters.

Fame, success, and money are often a lot to handle when the rise to the top comes so quickly for a lot of young athletes, and in the process great athletes do things that aren’t great for their reputations (or criminal records). Whether they’ve been known to cheat on their spouses, are notorious playboys, or have found themselves in serious trouble with the law, these are 15 athletes you would not want dating your daughter.

There are many reasons an athlete could make this list, and there is not questioning why Wilt Chamberlain wears the crown. The first big earner of basketball, Chamberlain was the first player to earn more than $100,000 a year. Considered one of the greatest and most dominant players in NBA history, Chamberlain lived alone in a multi-million dollar mansion, but was far from lonely. He was a lifelong bachelor, and became notorious for his claim to have had sexual intercourse with over 20,000 women. That’s right 20,000 women. As his lawyer Seymour "Sy" Goldberg put it: "Some people collect stamps, Wilt collected women." Yes this list would not be complete without the King Womanizer himself, Wilt Chamberlain.
