Basketball players have given us some iconic power duos. From Eva Longoria and Tony Parker to Yvette Prieto and Michael Jordan, NBA players have proved to have great taste when it comes to their dating rap.
The partners of NBA players have earned such a special place in our culture that they have even made their way into the reality TV realm. In 2010, VH1 launched Basketball Wives to help viewers keep up with some of these power couples. The show’s seventh season premiered May 14 and continues to go strong.
Other reality shows have been inspired by these couples as well, including Ball in the Family, which centers around the personal and professional life of Los Angeles Lakers star Lonzo Ball. In its latest episode, Ball and Denise Garcia offered the most detailed glimpse to date of Ball’s struggles with parenthood, as USA Today reported. After the episode, reports have been circulating that the couple has split up, as the Sports Daily detailed.
Over the years, famous basketball wives and girlfriends have included models, actresses, television personalities, athletes and everything else in between. Many of them have been famous in their own rights, while others have been more elusive. As the 2018–19 NBA season continues to gather steam, check out who some of the stars are married to or currently dating.
