As hot as the Heat are — just three wins away from clinching an NBA championship with Game 2 on Thursday — Gabrielle is hotter. That pretty face, unbelievable smile and beautiful body... damn, you’re doing it, D. Wade. We see you.
But Dwyane isn’t the only one with a badd chick. Nope. Several of his NBA peers have some of the hottest wives and girlfriends we’ve ever seen.
In honor of the Finals, XXL presents the 2011 Hottest NBA Wives & Girlfriends. Ballin! —Mark Lelinwalla
We loved Michael Jordan's ex-wife Juanita being there for him during his glory years, but we ain't mad at him for having Yvette Prieto as his girlfriend during retirement. The Cuban-born model's a firecracker. You're still winning, MJ!
Kobe has himself a dime. Vanessa's badd!
If Tamia ain't the ultimate wifey, we don't know who is. We had a crush on her then and still do today.
The three-point king scored big points when he made Shannon his wife. We hear she's also quite the chef, having taped her own cooking show.
Elton sure Branded his game when he proposed to Seneca. Can you say easy on the eyes?
LeBron's high school sweetheart and the mother of his kids, Savannah, is cool in our book.
Wait did Shannon bag Monica or did Monica hubby-up Shannon? Either way, it's a good look.
Devin may be one of the more underrated players in the NBA, but his girlfriend isn't underrated at all. She's hot, period.
He's nicknamed AK-47, but it's his wife who can shoot them dead with her beauty. A Russian pop singer, Masha is a looker.
You don't have to be an NBA superstar to have a hot girlfriend. Just being a role player and laying a little game down off the court got Sasha Sharapova in a 30 love and match set.
The six-time NBA champ and Michael Jordan's running mate is still living well off the court. Take a look at Larsa. Oooh-wee.
Rumor has it that LaLa convinced Carmelo to force a trade to the New York Knicks and we're not complaining. The Garden isn't far from the XXL offices. Ooh-LaLa!
Whatever Kris Humphries manages to do on the court with the New Jersey Nets, it may never be greater than making Kim Kardashian his fiancee. That gives the phrase Nothing but Net a whole new meaning.
Charlie got himself a winner here. Now only if the Golden State Warriors could win some games.
Paul Pierce talks a lot of ish on the court, but backs it up with his game. Taking one look at Julie, that goes for off the court too.
As long as Shaq is cool with the fact that Hoopz tongued down Flavor Flav, we are too.
It's funny because Gloria Govan is probably on the NBA Wives the least, but is the wifey - or girlfriend - we want to see the most.
Ahh Gabrielle . . . she definitely packs Heat.
The Knicks didn't get as far in the playoffs as they hoped to, but one of their stars did walk away with Ciara. That's a winning season to us.
KG already has a championship ring, but when he laced Brandi with a ring and made her his wife, he really won.
From one Boston Celtic to another, here's Rajon Rondo with his girlfriend Ashley.
A point guard's duty is usually to pass first, but Deron went in on offense to score points with his wife Amy.
We're fans of Alexandria! The Game, er, we mean Josh, did well.
Sharpshooter Peja got himself a model in Aleka.
Bosh closes out the Miami Big 3 with his girlfriend Adrienne.
Adriana's a supermodel, Marko Jaric's a role player and marrying Ms. Lima was his greatest role yet.
