Hakeem Olajuwon started playing basketball when he was fifteen years old, so it is no surprise that by the time he reached college, he was ready for the big leagues. His marriage to wife Dalia Asafi was arranged by his family, but the union seems to be a happy one. They’ve been married since 1996, and have three girls together—Abi, Rahmah, and Aisha. Hakeem is valued at $200 million, making him the wealthiest player on this list.
Ben Simmons has played for the Philadelphia 76’s since 2016. Originally from Australia, Simmons is lucky enough to be in a relationship with Dylan Gonzales, one of the Gonzales twins, who is also a basketball player in addition to being an Instagram model. What a beautiful couple!
