Alexander Ovechkin and the 10 Biggest Partiers in Sports
Parties are a common part of the lives of professional athletes. But some embrace the partying lifestyle more so than others.
These jocks have fame, fortune and beautiful women surrounding them. It's hard not to find reasons to celebrate life and success.
They play hard and they party hard.
Here are 10 of the biggest partiers in sports...
What a year for Reggie.
The New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl and he's broken up and gotten back together with Kim Kardashian more times than anyone can remember.
Now that he's single again, he's showing us that he can definitely party.
While celebrating a friend's birthday party at Tao in Las Vegas, Reggie supposedly bought his guests 100 bottles of Cristal.
And, who is that raising a golden bottle in the air?
Paris Hilton, who's also newly single.
Now that's a hookup waiting to happen.
Here's the the drunker side of Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks franchise player and 2007 MVP.
He looks pretty wasted, can't even muster the strength to open his eyes or fully flip off the camera.
Yes Steve. You are the man. After two-consecutive MVPs you've earned the right to strut your stuff.
I just hope you're showcasing your chest hair for a chick.
Because I only see dudes in this picture...
Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash
Remember Dirk and Steve in Dallas? They were a great duo.
Even off the court they were bosom buddies.
See the spark? See the chemistry?
They both had it off the court and on the basketball court.
Dirk's a free agent, maybe it's time for a reunion...
Here's a pic of Stephen Jackson drinking Belvedere straight from the bottle.
Jackson's showing former Warriors teammate Monta Ellis how it's done.
Warrior fans also remember Jackson for throwing himself a birthday bash headlined by Snoop Dogg after a foot injury conveniently ended his '08-'09 season.
Instead of sitting around and being sad about not being able to play, he threw himself a party.
You'd probably rather be partying too if your team was lottery bound.
Big Ben, you've just been in way too much trouble lately.
I guess after two Super Bowl rings, you do feel like you're entitled to drink like a champion.
But come on, if you you wear a shirt like that and get piss drunk at a small Georgia town where everyone knows you're filthy rich...you're just asking for it.
What's a party list without Dennis Rodman on it?
He's a rebounding beast and he's a cross-dressing party animal.
Despite appearances in rehab, Rodman continues to relapse and keeps on partying.
Over the past decade Rodman has had many encounters with police for having loud parties at his home or being too loud at restaurants and clubs.
How do you get over a devastating seven-game playoff series loss to the Boston Celtics?
Live it up on the beaches of St. Barts with a beautiful topless woman.
No doubt, Noah forgot about that loss pretty quickly.
He's found good reason to be partying it up since his college team, the Florida Gators took home the National Championship in 2006.
Now as an NBA player, he's also been frequently spotted partying in Las Vegas among other athlete hot spots.
This photo was supposedly taken while Noah was at the Hamptons during Labor Day weekend in '08.
After winning the 2010 NBA title Artest was so excited to party he told reporters, "I can't wait to go to the club after this."
Ron celebrated his first NBA championship all throughout Los Angeles. After his champagne shower, Ron wore his Lakers jersey around LA and took a Grey Goose shower at a club called Wonderland.
Artest admitted he only had about five hours of sleep between winning the Finals and the victory parade. With so many quotable moments, Artest was living an endless party.
Prior to becoming a champ, he was already quite the party freak. During his days as a Chicago Bull, Artest told media he used to drink during halftime.
Being the highest goal scoring left-winger in the NHL history has its perks.
Ovie gets to party with so many hot ladies. From D.C. to Russia to Turkey, his celebrations are a global affair.
He's found so many reasons to party since being drafted by the Washington Capitals. From turning 21 and winning the Calder Trophy, to winning the Hart Trophy as the NHL MVP.
Many in professional sports know, there ain't no party like a 'vechkin party.
Matt hasn't had many responsibilities since he lost the starting job to Kurt Warner the past two seasons.
That must be the explanation for his decision to jump in a hot tub with college coeds at ASU.
I guess he was just trying to relive his college glory days as the star Heisman winning QB for USC.
But wait there's more...
More Matt Leinart
He can party but he's thinking about his career.
He's exhibiting his veteran prowess by holding a beer bong with his non-throwing hand.
Now that Warner is retired, Matt might actually be able to put his left arm to good use.
