You know the phrase: “behind every great man, there’s a great woman?” Well, that’s definitely the case for some of the top players in the NBA. For all the superstars we have in the league, there are equally talented, accomplished, and beautiful women by their side. As 2016 comes to a close, we wanted to pay tribute to some of the finest NBA “WAGs” of the players headlining the league this year. As an added bonus, we have included the wife of the greatest player in NBA history. You can probably guess who we’re talking about… Scroll down to get started!
Michael Jordan & Yvette Prietto
Could you imagine what it’s like being married to one of the most popular athletes in sports history? Michael Jordan married Yvette Prieto, a Cuban-American model who happens to be 15 years younger than him, in April of 2013. The two reportedly met in a Miami nightclub in 2008, just a couple of years after Jordan’s divorce from longtime wife Juanita. A year-and-a-half later, the couple welcomed their first children together: identical twin daughters named Victoria and Ysabel. No offense to Yvette, but hopefully “MJ” signed a prenup this time, because his first divorce settlement cost him $168 million… Ouch!
