In honor of the top 8 teams in each conference making the postseason, here are the 8 hottest “WAGs” (wives and girlfriends) of the NBA playoffs:
8. Gabrielle Union
Dwayne Wade’s wife is one of the most recognizable actresses of the early 2000s, and still sexy over 40. Gabrielle married Wade after he got his personal assistant pregnant. The woman you might have seen terrorize Kirsten Dunst in that cheerleading movie a girl made you watch can often be seen courtside in Miami supporting the Heat.
7. Cody Horn
After about 20 minutes of infuriatingly confused frustration, I realized how I recognized this girl: The Office. Currently dating everyone’s least favorite third wheel, Kevin Love, Cody is an actress and model from Love’s home state of California. Hopefully she doesn’t have buyer’s remorse like the Cavs do as they watch Andrew Wiggins blossom into a star.
6. Meghan Allen

I strongly advise googling Meghan, who is a former “softcore model.” Now she is the wife of Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris. Meghan has a championship caliber body, though her husband’s team is headed for an early exit. Devin Harris, well done.
5. Kari Klinkenborg
— Kari Klinkenborg (@KariKlinkenborg) March 29, 2015
Perhaps my favorite back-story on the list, Kari is the ex-girlfriend of former NFL and reality TV star Terrell Owens. While I’m not TMZ and don’t have time to keep up with whatever the fuck is going on behind the scenes here, apparently she got caught sneaking out of multiple clubs with Blake Griffin. A definite upgrade from the last girl we saw Blake with, who may have been older than his mother. Maybe Kari will help Blake and the Clippers finally come through in the clutch.
4. Hannah Stocking
The definition of an “Instagram model,” Hannah has almost two million followers, probably due to the “biology degree” she lists in her bio. Maybe a better “player” than those on the actual court, Hannah dated Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson before going on a Twitter rant claiming his infidelity. Her next move? Hanging out with Cavaliers point guard, and last year’s NBA Finals opponent, Kyrie Irving.
3. Zulekya Rivera
One of the least noteworthy players on the court, JJ Barea is an absolute legend off of it. The first of Barea’s Ms. Universe baby mamas (more on that later), Rivera and Barea are no longer together but continue to co-parent their son. While this may break the rules of the list, women this hot don’t have to follow them anyway. JJ might be riding the pine this postseason, but the women riding him make him a champion anyway.
2. Amelia Vega
Another former Ms. Universe, Amelia Vega is at least married to an All-Star: Atlanta Hawks center Al Horford. Now a definite top flight MILF, Amelia seems like a real person. Her Instagram is loaded with photos of her kids, family, and lacks wildly thirsty thong pics, which only adds to her incredible attractiveness. While it’s unlikely Al Horford raises the Larry O’Brien trophy this year, the guy is definitely “winning.”
The new, and current, Ms. Universe attached to the munchkin Casanova in Dallas, JJ Barea, Ortiz is still considered one of the premier bikini models in the world (do yourself a favor and google that – you’re welcome.) Barea builds a roster even more impressively than Warriors GM Bob Myers, one-upping his ex with an even younger pageant queen. Now all the guy needs is Ari Gold to broker the greatest three-way in recorded history. Good luck.
While the first round might lack excitement, there’s still plenty to watch for on the sidelines..
