High profile celebrity women naturally make good companions for NBA stars, arguably the most visible of the major sports athletes, because they can relate to the highs and lows, the intense scrutiny they work under and the expectations that come with being in the public eye.

The hook-ups often incidentally (or purposefully) amplify both of their profiles in ways that could not have happened individually, such as in the case with the couple pictured above. Both were once major stars at the top of their respective positions, but coupling up has returned them to closer to the front of people’s consciousness.

Below is a list of beautiful women whom have dated, and in some cases married, NBA stars.
