Game on! Whether they date A-listers, have their own reality shows or just amaze us with their feats of skill, 21st-century athletes have joined the ranks of pop culture's top personalities. And when stunning athleticism is mixed with red-hot celebrity, behold-- the athlebrity!
With March Madness in full swing, we're taking a look at the players out there and are calling on you to help us pick the hottest sports star in our Athlebrity Madness tournament. We're starting things off with the world of b-ball, but get ready to vote for your favorites from baseball, football, tennis, skating and beyond:
So who's it gonna be in round one? Will Lamar Odom dominate just as he does on and off the court? Are Kobe Bryant's skills enough to get him to the next round? Or did Tony Parker's romance with Eva Longoria make him the ultimate athlebrity?
Check out the first round of 16 basketball Athlebrities. Vote for your fave and the top eight will advance to the next round! And be sure to follow all the action on Twitter @eonlineSports!
