Jason Terry's wife Johnyika Terry went to a rival high school. Despite the fact that Johnyika used to attend Jason's basketball games and jeer him, the two eventually became friends off the court, started dating and have been together ever since. They now have four daughters together, Jasionna, Jalayah, Jaida and Jasa Azuré.
So, some of you may have read ESPN's blog by Anonymous NBA Player X. Some folks have put together a pretty impressive argument suggesting that Player X is in fact none other than Jason Terry.
Whether or not he is, NBA Player X wrote a long blog about being a married professional athlete while the Tony Parker/Brent Barry divorce saga's unfolded. Player X (again, whether it's Jason Terry or not), writes one particularly insightful paragraph about the married life of a professional athlete.
Being home is no picnic, either. You've been apart from each other so long you've changed a bit. Over time it adds up, and after a while you begin to feel you don't know each other anymore. Plus, there's another side to the story. Our wives are prone to wander too. And the truth is, that can be okay -- provided you've got a strong relationship and have agreed to certain arrangements.
Player X then talks about pre-nups, open door marriage policies, and the one hard and fast rule in the NBA: You never mess with a teammates wife or girlfriend. Insightful prose, whoever the author may be.

So we'll full admit that there are contradictory reports floating around about these two, and we'll give you both sides
Joe and Wynter met at a local Atlanta hotspot, called Magic City.
Magic City also happens to be a strip club.
Some stories say that Wynter also happened to be working for tips when they met, and she wasn't delivering drinks. Other reports say she was just a hard working hostess fighting to make her way in this crazy world, or some song and dance like that.
After the story of their relationship began gaining steam, reports blew up that Wynter was carrying Joe’s first kid. Those reports were challenged suggesting that she was already pregnant when they met, and that the kid may be that of an Atlanta hip hop star (and she’s previously been linked to Lil Zane in the past).
While we don’t know the validity of the child together, or her official job duties in the club, we do know the two were a serious item at one point. During the summer of 2010, she moved into Joe’s Miami mansion. We’re not sure if they’re still together, but we’ll keep you posted if we ever do find out for sure.

UPDATE: 10/15/2013: It was a tough summer for Celtics fans seeing the team deconstructed, and the heart and soul and captain of their team, Paul Pierce, dealt to the Brooklyn Nets. What is Boston's loss is Brooklyn's gain and DuJour Magazine has an excellent read about the Nets new SF and how he, his wife, and his children are acclimating to their new stomping grounds. DuJour has also posted a behind the scenes video and multiple photos such as the one to the right (including a couple with PP wearing a $100K watch).
Definitely worth the read - Enjoy!
UPDATE 7/19/2010: After a lengthy engagement, Paul and Julie tied the knot July 17, 2010 at an oceanview wedding on the West Coast. The couple's 2 year old daughter Prianna served as flower girl. The Celtics heavy guest list included Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Doc Rivers amongst the 80 guests (impressive work keeping it to 80 guests).
Paul Pierce's girlfriend Julie Landrum likes NBA vets. Landrum used to date NBA player Larry Hughes though rumors persist that Hughes was married during the entire duration of their relationship.
During the lowest point of Pierce's career, he credits Landrum for helping keep his head above water.
She really helped me through that year in 2007, provided me the support when I was down a lot. She's an amazing woman. We get along so well because we were such good friends. We started dating after the All-Star weekend in Houston three years ago. The next thing I know we're living together. Man, we clicked, we bonded.
Together since February, 2006 and the couple has three children, two daughters and one son named Prince Paul Pierce born in 2013. Landrum's mother moved in with the couple and acts as a live in nanny after the birth of their first.
