I'm hoping Mike Dunleavy's wife Sarah Dunleavy is as close to his best friend's wife as Dunleavy is to his best friend. Let me explain that somewhat confusing sentence: Mike Dunleavy is best friends with Shane Battier, as they were college teammates at Duke. They also play practical jokes on each other, and one such prank had Dunleavy leaving messages on Battier's phone pretending to be their old coach and telling him to drop his Chinese shoe company and take less three pointers. It's up for debate whether Shane actually believed it was Mike Krzyzewski.

Sarah herself treks with Mike to visit Shane and his wife every summer, and she was also a Duke student back in the early 2000's. There's an account online at Duke's website of how she was crying hysterically when she was first driven to Duke. It's told by her younger sister, and her brother chimes in and says, "When Sarah first came here, it was raining, cold, and she hated it. My dad had to force her to come back." Weirdly, after she got over whatever was bothering her about Duke, pretty much all of Sarah's sisters and brothers attended Duke after her. There's apparently a bunch of them, and the only one that didn't go was her oldest sister Alexandra. Mike Dunleavy's wife Sarah Dunleavy sets the Duke attendance trends. Good thing she decided she'd actually go to the school after her dad made her.

Sarah's oldest sister isn't totally out of the picture, though. She really shines in her participation with various foundations. She was photographed by the New York Social Diary back in 2009 at a Breast Cancer Research Event in New York, attending with her older sister Alexandra. Sarah also attends charity and foundation events with Mike pretty regularly. Ever since their marriage in 2008, Mike Dunleavy's wife Sarah Dunleavy has become a staple at such events.

Aaron Brooks' Wife Shavonne Bland

Aaron Brooks' wife Shavonne Bland gave birth to their daughter Mikah back in 2007 right around the time he was trying to finish up college at Oregon and get drafted into the NBA. He didn't really think he could make it to the NBA, but he got drafted 26th that year and went straight to the Rockets. Aaron and Shavonne actually came close to him quitting basketball and moving back to his hometown where Shavonne was pregnant, but he stuck it out. I guess it was a smart decision, because now they're millionaires.

One of the more talked about charity events that Aaron Brooks' wife Shavonne Bland attended was back in 2008 when Yao Ming was on the team. They went to this thing called the Houston Rockets Tux and Tennies Charity Gala. The idea was to pay money to sit with the NBA players (it cost $500 to get a picture with Yao Ming) and it all went to raising money for the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation. Both Aaron and Shavonne were in attendance and looking stylish. It's a pretty funny sight seeing 7'6" Yao Ming in a tuxedo sitting with a bunch of normal folks. Plus, he's sort of funny looking in general. I'm sure the humor wasn't lost on Aaron and Shavonne.

Aaron Brooks' wife Shavonne Bland has done a fair bit of child-rearing since 2007 when she gave birth to Mikah, and that means Mikah is now coming up on her 8th birthday. So Aaron and Shavonne are sort of out of the toddler stage and into the pre-adolescent stage, I guess you'd call it. Aaron's made a boatload of money from the NBA, and the couple are just now adjusting to his moving over to Chicago. I'm sure Shavonne is very thankful Aaron made the decision to stick with basketball and not move back home and quite altogether.

Jimmy Butler's Girlfriend Charmaine Piula

Jimmy Butler's girlfriend Charmaine Piula is a lovely young lady of Polynesian descent. She grew up in Utah and went to school at Snow Canyon High School in St. George, right on the border of Arizona and directly south of Red Cliffs Conservation Area. I imagine this was a pretty cool place to grow up, but that's because I've only been through that area of the country once, and it seemed like an exotic land. The last time she updated her LinkedIn account, she had been working for Auto Owners Insurance as a marketing representative. I'm thinking that means she made phone solicitations? I never know what marketing titles mean, but "representative" generally implies salesperson. So according to that, she sells automobile insurance. That account said she worked in the Boise, Idaho area, and I'm pretty sure she moved to Chicago within the last year, so she hasn't been updating her LinkedIn.

Based on a whole mess of Vine videos that she took, Jimmy Butler's girlfriend Charmaine Piula likes to get out there and mix it up with friends. Her best friend Kelli has a memorable puffy and frizzy hairstyle, and they go running and shopping and partying together quite a bit. Or at least they used to when they were in Utah or vacationing in Los Angeles. As a matter of fact, Charmaine seems to have done quite a lot of traveling around America with her friend Kelli in the past year or so. They've gone to Las Vegas, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Cabo. Charmaine's pretty charming in these videos. She loves to sing, dance, and make goofy faces with her friends for the camera, and you can tell she's got a good sense of humor. I guess you have to if you're going to sell insurance all day long, right?
