How hot is J.J. Barea? According to Latina's readers, much hotter than his fellow Latino basketball players, Al Horford and Ricky Rubio! Thanks to your votes, the Boricua Dallas Mavericks player pushed his competitors out of the court for this week’s leading Crush. Barea stole a whopping 95 percent of the vote. Now, that’s caliente.
His real name is José Juan Barea, but we love his nickname J.J. Born and bred in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico until he was 17, Barea is pure Boricua. Now 27, the Dallas Mavericks player’s career is impressive; he’s played for his island’s men’s basketball league BSN and later became the seventh Puerto Rican to play in the NBA. Last year, he broke out with a career-making season, helping to lead the Mavs to a Championship ring as the sicth man off the bench!
A cutie both on and off the basketball court, that’s not the only reason we find Barea so attractive. The 6-feet tall point guard is currently preparing what is certainly his biggest role yet: father-to-be. Barea and his girlfriend, former Miss Universe Zuleyka Rivera, are expecting a baby together. All we can say is, Barea is going to be one sexy papi... pun definitely intended.
