Being an NBA star has plenty of obvious perks: money, power, celebrity, the list goes on. Among the many benefits of being a star athlete is the opportunity to meet some of the most beautiful, talented, and interesting women in the world. Plenty of basketball players have an impressive dating resume, but these NBA wives and girlfriends put those brief flings to shame.
Check out the famous WAGs behind some of the biggest ballers in the league, both past and present.
Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade
Actress Gabrielle Union has appeared in some of the biggest hit movies since 1999. She scored roles in classic teen flicks like “She’s All That” and “10 Things I Hate About You.” In 2000, Union got her big break, playing Isis in the smash hit “Bring It On.”
Union has continued to star in numerous films and television shows. In 2009, Union began to date Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. Though Union is nearly nine years older than Wade, the age difference didn’t stop the two from getting hitched in 2014.
Amelia Vega, Al Horford
In 2002, Dominican model Amelia Vega won the title Miss Dominican Republic. One year later, Vega stepped onto the biggest stage in the world to represent her country and became Miss Universe 2003. She has since added acting, singing, and even a pilot’s license to her repertoire.
