9 NBA stars who've won relationship goals: LeBron James, Al Horford and more




It's no secret that the fame and money are sexy when it comes to the relationship game. And if you happen to be an NBA star, you’ll definitely find yourself getting swarmed by a flock of women.

But as ironic as it might sound, the more famous and richer you get the harder it is to find a genuine match. It is actually harder to find a person who genuinely likes you for who you are as a person and not for your fame and money. 

The NBA stars are known for having top choices when it comes to picking their partners. However, while some of their relationships cannot withstand the test of time, some of them manage to make it through. 

Today, we are listing the NBA stars who have managed to excel at their dating game and have won the relationship lottery.
