Last week the starting lineups for the 2013 NBA All-Star game were announced. Rather then breaking down the x’s and o’s, the biggest snubs, or players PER, I thought we should get to know the players wives. Because how can you really know a guy without knowing his greater half (not including all the one’s on the side in each city). Without further ado here is your 2013 Eastern Conference Starting Lineup:
Staring at guard, from Boston, #9 Rajon Rondo: Girlfriend- Ashley Bachelor
Pretty much an unknown. Ashley is Rajon’s college sweetheart (that’s still a thing, right?). They met at Kentucky and have a kid together. It’d be nice if they could get married because google searching someone with the name Ashley BACHELOR is about as fun as watching the real bachelor.
Starting at guard, from Miami, #3 Dwayne Wade: Girlfriend- Gabrielle Union
You wanna know why Dwayne Wade wears skinny jeans/leather pants, nerd glasses, and fruity colors? Because he comes home to this every night. Guy could be wearing a tie-dye poncho and jorts and still have a hotter girlfriend than 98% of the world.
Starting at forward, from New York, #7 Carmelo Anthony: Wife- La La Anthony
To say La La Anthony played her cards perfectly might be an understatement. She was a radio host in Atlanta with Ludacris while in high school. Then she became a host on MTV’s TRL (which seems like it’s about 25 years old). And now she’s married to New York Knick and future HOF’er Carmelo Anthony. Well played La La, well played.
Starting at forward, from Boston, #5 Kevin Garnett: Wife- Brandi Garnett
I couldn’t imagine what it’d be like to be KG’s wife. The guy that says about 400 f’bombs a game, tells Melo his wife tastes like honey nut cherrio’s, and he spits when he talks. Could you imagine what it’d be like in the sack? Probably the same amount of agression and passion if not more in the bedroom than on the hardwood.
Starting at forward, from Miami, #6 LeBron James: Wife- Savannah Brinson
Okay Savannah Brinson isn’t the hottest of the NBA wives. But if ESPN was doing a 30 for 30 on her I would totally watch it. Know why? Because she has been with LeBron since they were in HIGH SCHOOL together. She’s the real life version of Jesus Shuttlesworth’s girlfriend. Imagine everyone saying your high school boyfriend is the next Michael Jordan. College coaches no doubt trying to bribe you to get the inside track on your boyfriend. She’s been with him through that, the Cleveland days, The Decision, The Villian year in Miami, and back again. For all the hate Bron Bron gets this guy married his high school sweetheart when he could have easily got any girl on the planet, so Savannah must be pretty good. (plus they had a kid his second year in the league, aka when he was 19, so she’s had that going for her).
Stay tuned for the Western Conference edition.
