Enjoying a live Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) game wouldn’t be complete without the beautiful women who cheer their hearts out every game.
These angels at courtside have the ability to turn what was supposed to be a fierce battle between bitter rivals into their own shows with either the Mall of Asia Arena or Smart Araneta Coliseum as their stage and the massive crowd as their backdrop.
They are the showstoppers.
They are the beauties behind the game’s biggest stars.
Here’s a list of PBA beauties who captivated the hearts of our basketball idols.
Rey Nambatac may be new to the league, but he has already emerged as Most Valuable Player in the dating department.
His girlfriend: Keisha Ancheta.
Known for starring in various projects, including Ang Panday and , this commercial and calendar model has been shaking the PBA venues for her good looks and charming personality.
Her Instagram followers had soared to more than 130,000, proving that fans are drooling over her dreamy eyes and captivating smile.
If Sam has Anthony, Gwen Zamora captured the heart of the other half of the notoriously good-looking Semerad twins, David.
In fact, the lovebirds already have a baby — eight-month old Cooper — and were set to tie the knot last month when the coronavirus pandemic threw their plan in disarray.
Nevertheless, there’s no stopping this Filipino-Italian beauty from gracing the courtside during PBA games and consistently drawing “oohhss” and “aahhss” from curious onlookers.
These Semerad twins are definitely blessed.
On the court, Ian Sanggalang is soft-spoken, shy and unassuming.
Yet off the court, he is a winner for marrying one of the prettiest women in the face of Pampanga.
A nurse by profession, Pauline Sanggalang’s good looks and bubbly character earned her a lot of admirers while watching her husband patrol the paint for Magnolia.
She also has a personal blog that tackles about travel, fashion, food and lifestyle.
Ian must be proud.
Ah, what a lucky guy!
Sam Pinto is arguably one of the most recognizable faces at courtside for having the face of an angel and the stance of a beauty queen.
She broke into the modeling industry when she was 10 and was unstoppable since then as she was featured in various television and print commercials, including biggest brands like Sunsilk, Smart, Colgate, Palmolive and McDonald’s.
She may have carried a lot of brands, but her heart belongs to only one: Anthony Semerad.
And their upcoming wedding would definitely be her biggest project.
There’s no doubt that Danica Sotto is one of the most approachable PBA wives around.
Why not, the eldest daughter of celebrities Vic Sotto and Dina Bonnevie practically grew up in the spotlight as she starred in various movies and television shows since her teenage years.
She’s a beauty, brains and good public relations rolled into one.
No wonder, a lot of guys are dreaming to be in Marc Pingris’ shoes.
Playing for rival schools may be a recipe for disaster for a couple.
Well, not for Denden Lazaro and LA Revilla.
Despite finding themselves at the opposite sides of the court, Denden and LA still managed to play beautiful music together, leading to a wedding that was graced by a powerhouse cast from their respective schools —Ateneo and La Salle.
With Denden now in the Premier Volleyball League and LA calling the plays for Phoenix Super LPG in the PBA, there is no doubt that they overcame all the trials and stood the test of time. It was such a perfect ending for beautiful lovebirds.
Spotting this Filipino-Hawaiian beauty in a thick crowd is a cakewalk.
Kalei, for one, ranks in the upper crust of the most sexiest and most athletic PBA girlfriends for having toned arms, broad shoulders, solid hips and a 6-foot-1 frame meant for a volleyball player.
Chris Ross must be a very lucky guy.
Oh, and before we forget: Kalei was the Most Valuable Player in the previous All-Filipino Conference of the Philippine Superliga. What a babe.
