Meet the Wives of Your Favorite NBA Players

The Brazilian-born model got her big break with Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Model Search back in 2017. But before her modeling dreams came true, Anne dreamed about becoming a doctor. She told Fox News, “I feel like it was an influence because of my parents and my family. They all work in the [medical] field. I did look up to them…It still can happen, you never know!”

Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes, Derek Fisher

The former Basketball Wives star has a complicated history with NBA stars. She met Matt Barnes when she was just 12, and the pair began dating officially in 2006. Despite Barnes being arrested for domestic violence against Govan in 2010 (the charges were later dropped), the two married in 2013 and had twins together. They divorced in 2016, and the two have been embroiled in an ugly custody battle ever since. Now, Govan is engaged to the coach of the New York Knicks, Derek Fisher.

Barnes and Fisher were reportedly "very close" (according to ESPN), as they played on the Lakers together for a couple of years, and the fact that Govan and Fisher began dating before the divorce was final drove a big wedge between the two NBA stars. Govan was arrested with a felony charge in 2018 after an altercation with Barnes at their sons’ school, and Barnes has been granted full custody—and a restraining order against Govan.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are basically #couplegoals, although they hate when people call them that. They've been very open about their fertility struggles and attending couples therapy, and Gabrielle told Ebony that "me and D are like, 'WTF?' We've kind of figured it out now, but I guess maybe we should tweet live from couples' therapy."

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Although they've been divorced since 2016, Khloe and Lamar's relationship will always be one of the most memorable NBA marriages. Their love story was documented on Keeping Up With the Kardashians (where they met and got married within two months in 2009), then with their own short-lived spinoff show, Khloe & Lamar. But Lamar was keeping a lot of secrets from Khloe (among them, multiple affairs and substance abuse), and she filed for divorce in December 2013.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Odom refused to sign the divorce papers, drawing out the divorce for two whole years. Two months before the divorce was finalized, Odom was hospitalized after being found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada. Khloe asked the judge to hold off while he was in the hospital so she could be by his side and make medical decisions for him. Despite the world's hopes that Odom would get his life together and the two would eventually reconcile, the divorce was finalized in December 2016.

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

Khloe moved from one NBA star to another (with a rapper or two in-between)! She told Us Weekly that another NBA star, Brandon Jennings, set the two up on a blind date in 2016. They welcomed their first child together in April 2018, just three days after photos and videos came out of Tristan cheating on Khloe. But that wasn't the end of their relationship, nor his cheating scandals...

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

Against her sister's (and the rest of the world's) wishes, Khloe gave Tristan a second chance. Fast forward to February 2019 (LESS than a year later), and Tristan was up to his old tricks—this time he was caught with the youngest Kardashian/Jenner's long-time BFF, Jordyn Woods. Needless to say, they were both given the boot.

Morgan Poole Bledsoe and Eric Bledsoe

The Phoenix Sun point guard married his high school sweetheart in 2017. (They’ve been together since 2008!) They have two children together, Ethan and Ariana.

Tamia Hill and Grant Hill

Tamia and Grant have been married since 1999—two whole decades!—and have two children together. The secret to their marriage? Consistency. She told ESSENCE, “Every day you are just saying to each other, ‘we are going to work it out, we are going get through it together,’ [because] it’s not about looking into each other’s eyes, it’s about looking in the same direction.”

Vanessa Bryant and Kobe Bryant

Vanessa and Kobe Bryant, arguably the most famous NBA marriage of all time, began dating while Vanessa was a senior in high school and wed in 2001, when she was just 18. But just two years later, her husband was accused of sexually assaulting a hotel employee. The case was eventually dropped (and settled outside of court later), and Kobe dropped $4 million on an “apology ring.” Vanessa was criticized for standing by him, then later accused of being a gold digger (by her ex-stepfather) when she filed for divorce in 2011. The two reconciled in 2012.

Vanessa Bryant and Kobe Bryant

The couple just had a fourth daughter, but Vanessa reportedly wants to have a fifth child because she’s still pulling for a boy. And unlike most Hollywood mothers, Vanessa refuses to hire a nanny. She told The Cut in 2012 it’s because “that’s the way I was raised”!

Jordyn Woods and James Harden

So it appears that Jordyn really does love Khloe Kardashian's sloppy seconds! First Tristan, and now she's moving on to another of Khloe's exes, James Harden. The Blast reported in February 2019 that the two had "hooked up," although Jordyn reportedly got Khloe's blessing before anything happened. (Oh, how times have changed.) They were spotted out dancing together at a bar in Texas in July 2019, but neither of them have confirmed the relationship yet.

Jordyn Woods and James Harden

Other than being Kylie Jenner's ex-BFF, Jordyn models—she used to model for Khloe's All American denim line, but obviously those days are over—and now it looks like she's trying to break into acting. Which makes sense, because she's been close to Will and Jada Smith's family her whole life.

Hazel Renee and Draymond Green

The NBA player popped the question to the Basketball Wives star with a $300,000, 6-carat diamond ring in January 2019. The CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills, where he bought the ring, told TMZ that Draymond was "very involved in the design process." Reportedly, the proposal also included a helicopter and a yacht.

The two called it quits in 2009 (and briefly in 2007), and Shaquille hasn’t married again since (although he dated Laticia Rolle, a podcaster and hat designer, from 2014-2018). They were married for seven years and have four children together, so they still have a good relationship and co-parent. But it took them a while to get there after what Shaunie did to Shaq's car...

Shaunie O’Neal and Shaquille O’Neal

Shaunie created the reality show Basketball Wives in 2010, and she detailed what she did to his car on an episode: “Our blackberries got switched. I went to my baby’s play at school and I was like 'damn, my phone is going off a lot.' Just girl, after girl, after girl like ‘baby last night what you did.’ And I went in the arena and I went in that garage, not only did I flatten tires, bust a few windows, I wrote on the hood of his car, ‘I cheat on my wife. I ain’t sh*t’ with a knife. I wrote it on the hood and down the side of the car. He had to drive that sh*t on four flats, with the messages all around it. I drove right on the side of his ass blowing the horn, cause I wanted to people to like see. Beep! Beep! The whole ride, the whole ride.”
