Just a few years removed from his career at Butler University, the forward, then with the Utah Jazz, shot his shot, asking recent high school grad Robyn to be his bride on Christmas Eve 2013. Married the following May, the athletes—she was a standout volleyball player at her Indiana high school—have steadily been putting together their own squad ever since.

And despite having to play zone with all their little ones, the Charlotte-based duo haven’t ruled out bringing on more teammates. “Bernie is sweet and gentle, Charlie is always doing things on her own time and beats to her own drum, Nora makes sure Theo knows she’s the boss and has no fear at all, and Theo is pretty unbothered and chill (so far),” she detailed in a December post. “This is what 4 kids 5 and under looks like (for us)… @gordonhayward do you want more kids?”
