Basketball | 10/7/19

NBA athletes have tremendous pressure on their shoulders. Not only do they have to play 82 games during the season and try to remain healthy for that stretch of six-to-eight months, but they also have to continue to better themselves during the off-season. If they don’t, another player will gladly come in and take their spot. For some stars, they have families or significant others that help make this schedule a lot easier. Some players have had their special person since high school, while others didn’t meet their special someone until they entered the NBA. Keep reading and see who the top athletes in the NBA are partnered with– some are celebrities while others fly under the radar.

Iman Shumpert and Teyana Taylor are the NBA’s favorite couple. They laugh, dance, and joke around with each other whenever they’re together, no matter who’s watching. Taylor is in the music business, signed to Kanye West’s label GOOD Music.

She used to do choreography for Beyonce before signing a record deal. Shumpert won a ring with LeBron James and company in 2016, the same year the couple exchanged vows. They share one daughter together, Iman “Junie” Tayla Shumpert.
