Most Famous WAGs of NBA Stars (2010-Present)

The NBA is easily the flashiest league in North America. Not only are its leading players paid higher on average than any other major league, but basketball also tends to be heavy-hitting in the world of pop culture and entertainment. Fans pack into stadiums to watch the Mavericks, Lakers, Thunder and more elite teams compete. They also wager on big games. In fact, you can find here some NBA promos that focus on the biggest matches. Even during the off-season, it’s common for fans to bet on futures outcomes.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of basketball’s reach. Even from a fashion perspective, the sport has had an influence around the world. Baseball caps, jerseys and Air Jordans are just a few examples of how basketball’s reach has spread. Within the US, particularly, many stars become icons in their own right. They start fashion lines, they star in big-screen movies, they see shout-outs from famous rappers.

They also couple up with some of the most beautiful, talented and popular women in the public eye. Let’s take a look back at some of the most famous and beloved WAGs in the league, starting in 2010 until the present day.

Ayesha Curry (Steph Curry)

Almost everyone knows who Ayesha Curry is. In fact, she’s officially listed as a Canadian and American actress thanks to her appearances on TV. You probably remember her TV show from the Food Network, Ayesha’s Homemade. But she’s extended her culinary reach beyond television. To date, she’s published multiple cookbooks, cameos on Dancing With The Stars and The Great American Baking Show, and her own YouTube channel.

Teyana Taylor (Iman Shumpert)

Teyana Taylor is a highly accomplished performer who you might remember from My Super Sweet Sixteen or, later on, as a dancer in music videos from Kanye West and Beyonce. She even launched her own musical career. Though it never quite panned out, Taylor is an influential member of the hip-hop, fashion and dance communities. Her and Shumpert even nabbed their own television series from VH1, which aired from 2020 until 2023. Taylor and Shumpert separated in late 2023.

La-La Anthony (Carmelo Anthony)

Similar to Taylor, La La Anthony had a full-blown career before she met NBA legend, Carmelo Anthony. Known simply as ‘La La’, she got her start as an MTV VJ back in the early 2000s and blew up in fame thanks to TRL. That led to other roles as an MTV Host, including on mega-popular shows like Flavor of Love and Real Chance of Love. She also has a long list of credits as an actress. In 2010, she and Anthony tied the knot, but they divorced in 2021. The pair also had their own reality series, including La La’s Full Court Wedding and La La’s Full Court Life.

Khloe Kardashian (Tristan Thompson)

From 2016-2021, Khloe Kardashian was married to Tristan Thompson. Their relationship was subject to much public scrutiny, especially related to rumors of infidelity on the side of Thompson. Most notably, Thompson had a fling with the best friend of Khloe’s younger sister, Kylie Jenner. The two then spent the next years breaking up and reconciling before finally splitting sometime in 2022. Around the same time as their relationship, Khloe’s younger sister Kendall Jenner briefly dated NBA players like Chandler Parsons, Ben Simmons and Devin Booker.

Gabrielle Union-Wade (Dwyane Wade)

In the 1990s, there was no ‘It Girl’ quite on par with Gabrielle Union. She made her name by starring in a variety of hits, from Bring It On to 10 Things I Hate About You to Bad Boys II. She was almost ten years older than Dwyane Wade when they married in 2014. The pair had already been dating since 2008. Unlike others on this list, their relationship didn’t yield any major reality TV shows. In fact, the pair are incredibly private about their personal lives. Both were previously married before tying the knot.
