Detroit Pistons Wives and Girlfriends (WAGS)


Isiah Thomas' Wife Lynn Kendall


GD Star Rating

Isiah Thomas' wife Lynn Kendall has had a lot of emotional supporting to do over the years. Her husband, though a phenomenal player, followed a coaching path that just never seemed to work in any way, and no matter where Isiah went and what direction he turned, he could never seem to get wins out of his clubs. But one great win that he achieved off the court was nabbing Lynn.

Lynn was Isiah's girlfriend all the way back in the late 70's when they met. He proposed to her on the steps of the library at Indiana University because they apparently met there. Isiah actually got engaged to Lynn in the mid 80's-- a full 5 years after getting drafted in 1980. After marriage, he'd become a two-time champion, but not before the birth of their first son Joshua in 1988. Lynn's pregnancy and birth coincided exactly with the Finals series with the Lakers in '88, so you can imagine how stressful that time was for them both.

Lynn also had to go through a scandal involving Isiah's "liaison" with a woman named Jenni Dones in 1985. They got together and "conceived a love child on May 26, 1985," according to the New York Post. Isiah's son Marc Dones was born in February of 1986. So the way it all boiled down: Isiah married Lynn in July of 1985, but he got together with Jenni two months before. Isiah then agreed to pay Jenni "$2,764.78 a month until Marc Dones reached 18, when Marc would get a lump-sum payment of $100,000" according to the New York Post.

That's a pretty expensive liaison. Well, Lynn and Isiah have led a nice life for themselves outside of things like that. They're both known as philanthropists, and they are both firm believers in giving back to the community. New York Knicks fans definitely don't think Isiah gave anything to them, as they would boo him constantly when he was in their organization, but Lynn and Isiah are now comfortable and living fine with Isiah as an NBA analyst.


Andre Drummond's girlfriend Jennette McCurdy

God, I'm getting old. iCarly is a thing? To who? My kid sure doesn't watch it, but apparently it's a big kids show? Seriously, do people know this?

Apparently the Pistons big man knows about iCarly, as seen in Andre Drummond's girlfriend Jennette McCurdy. McCurdy held a role on the Nickelodeon teen-driven show, iCarly, from 2007 to 2012. McCurdy is the elder in the relationship, now 21, dating the 20 year old Drummond. Drummond publicy announced his crush on McCurdy through Twitter, and in a true first-world, 21st century boy meets girl romance story, got his followers to annoy McCurdy's followers to annoy her into finally meeting up. The couple has since met face to face in late August and now appears to enjoy their time together on Instagram.

Drummond posted a solid rookie season for the rebuilding Pistons, with the Motor City looking to him for more in 2013 as the team is poised for a big step forward. Drummond will be an integral part of their success, and as we've seen time and time again, Drummond may see a boost from the stability off the court.

OK but seriously. What the eff is iCarly?

Brandon Jennings' girlfriend (ex) Teyana Taylor and rumored girlfriend Angela Simmons

UPDATE 05/07/2014: When you date famous people, you usually have the mutually beneficial cloak of secrecey worth protecting. However, when Brandon Jennings' girlfriend Teyana Taylor (okay, his ex-girlfriend), goes on the radio, you never quite know what's coming out.

Taylor went on Power 105.1 on May 7th, and the subject of her relationship came up. Taylor did admit that Jennings was the one to take her virginity. In the fast paced music and sports world, that often happens the night two people meet. For Taylor, it was a drawn out process, explaining that she made the Pistons point guard wait more than two years before having sex.

Taylor still hasn't had a second partner, but plenty of rumors are floating about Jennings doing just fine since their split dating one of Taylor's close friends. I doubt he had to wait another two years....

While Brandon Jennings is still considered a young player in the NBA, it was startling to find out that he's 24 years old. Between the controversey over his college decisions, and then the year spent overseas playing in Italy to show a semi-protest to the NBA's age restriction, it just seems like he's been around a lot longer than a rookie from the 2010 NBA Draft. Regardless of his age, or current team, it's pretty clear Brandon Jennings is loving being one of the young stars in the NBA, especially when you consider Brandon Jennings girlfriend Teyana Taylor.

In all fairness, Taylor and Jennings have been on again/off again since they began dating in 2011. Taylor is a rising star in her own right, as a recording artist on Kanye West's music label, G.O.O.D. & The Island Def Jam Music Group. Before signing with Kanye and Def Jam, Taylor was on different deals with Interscope and Pharrell Williams Star Trak Entertainment. Taylor has also had a few acting appearances in movies such as Stomp The Yard 1 & 2, and Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family.

Here's where things get interesting. For the last couple weeks, there have been rumors that Brandon Jennings' girlfriend is now Angela Simmons. Simmons is the daughter of Rev Run, and first made a splash on the MTV reality show, "Run's House." Angela was shot in Los Angeles, and was known as the designer and creator of Pastry shoe line. Simmons and Taylor are former friends, and after 2 pictures surfaced on the same day showing Jennings and Simmons wearing the same shirt, the tension escalated with Taylor lobbing bombs over Twitter:

Last Night Before Bed I Had An Awesome Meal I Didnt Finish Wonder If She Wants That Too.

For her part, Simmons has not responded and there's been no confirmation of her relationship with Jennings. From the sideline view, this one's far from over, and we'll keep an eye on it.
