JJ Barea, a 5 foot 10 inch guard of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks is known for being much shorter than the majority of his NBA opponents. Despite his small frame, he is never intimidated by other players and certainly isn’t intimidated by gorgeous women, especially former Miss Universe. That’s right. Not Miss America or Miss Random Country. Miss whole wide Universe. Barea is now dating her and according to him, all it took was a simple text to get Miss Universe’s attention. He is now in competition with former NBA player Marco Jaric for having the hottest significant other in the NBA (Jaric is happily married to Victoria Secret model Adriana Lima). You gotta give big props to little JJ.
