There are several chief qualities that can help attract a mate. Being good-looking, rich and athletic are all very useful.
Professional athletes tend to be all three, so it's not surprising that most NBA stars have been locked down by a ball and chain already.
Even the youngsters can't remain bachelors. Imagine my surprise when I learned that 21-year-old Kyrie Irving is dating Brazilian model Natalia Garibotto and referring to her as his "wife." She's already getting a little clingy.
This is in stark contrast to the Derek Jeter school of bachelorhood. There's absolutely no need to rush into marriage. At least not until after your fifth championship.
Plus, the hectic life of an NBAer can put a strain on relationships, so some of the league's biggest stars are still on the market.
