The NBA Player Wives List

nba player wives logo

Who's your favorite NBA star married to, or are they even married? The most famous of NBA wives today may be the Desperate Housewives star herself, Eva Longoria-Parker. Eva and Tony married just last year with a fancy ceremony in Paris. Another well known wife is Vanessa Bryant, who's married to LA Laker Kobe. Vanessa was in headlines quite a bit after Kobe admitted to having an extra-marital affair. Kobe's wife stood by him throughout the ordeal and they are happily married still. Grant Hill is married to R&B singer, Tamia.

For many ballers, marriage is short-lived, while others stay happily married. Recent divorcees included Shaq, Vince Carter and Jason Kidd. There's also many baller bachelors in the league.
