Lala Anthony Says Her Struggles With Being Called "Basketball Wife" Hurt Her Marriage - 03-20


The term "basketball wife" comes with connotations that aren't necessarily positive. People associate it with women who are looking for a come up or clout by marrying an NBA player, or they think of women fighting each other on a VH1 reality show. Because of these associations, Lala Anthony and Gabrielle Union said that they struggled with being labeled with the term even though being a "basketball wife" is technically what they are. Lala has been married to Carmelo Anthony since 2010 and Gabrielle married Dwyane Wade in 2014.
