Before some serious PlayerWives.com sleuthing, CJ McCollum’s girlfriend had only been alluded to vaguely in an interview with the Deseret News. When the Lehigh University graduate was asked about the amount of homework NBA teams do on the players they are scouting, McCollum had this to say:
They know everything, they know if you have a girlfriend. They know what color your dog is and everything.
CJ McCollum then admitted that while he did not have a dog, he did have a girlfriend. While that amount of information might be good enough for some of our competition, PlayerWives.com isn’t known to rest on our laurels. Through our patent-pending (ok, not really) Internet Sleuthing techniques, we were able to determine that
CJ McCollum’s girlfriend is Elise Esposito.
Actually, that’s a lie too. Because she’s actually CJ McCollum’s fiancee now.

McCollum proposed to Elise Esposito prior to the 2018-2019 season. He joined two other Blazers by putting a ring on it. That’s what the cool kids say, right? Anyways, McCollum joined Jake Layman and Nick Stauskas by getting engaged. The baby Blazers are all growing up!.

Back to Elise Esposito!
Elise is originally from Bethlehem, PA, attending high school at Bethlehem Catholic High School. She is also a magna cum laude graduate of Lehigh University, with a degree in Behavioral Neuroscience/Pre-medicine and went back to Lehigh for a Master’s Degree in Engineering. But, education didn’t stop there, as Elise kept going. After working as a dental assistant for almost a decade, she headed back to school in 2016 at NYU, aiming to become a full fledged Doctor of Dental Surgery. Elise Esposito-McCollum, DDS!
