16 Sexiest Athletes of 2012
Let's face it, watching sports is not most ladies' cup of tea. However, when you do sit down to catch a heated game, match or race, there's a heap of eye candy to keep any Vixens' eyes glued to the tube.
Check out our list of this year's most swoon-worthy athletes!
16. Shannon Brown
This traded-to-the-Suns baller has been a longtime beau to many (in their minds, at least!). But settling down and becoming a family man thanks to singer Monica only added several points for him on our scoreboard.

15. Dwight Howard
We can’t decide which aspect of this All-Star Orlando basketball player is more attractive: his smile, his silly sense of humor or his chiseled Superman arms. Either way, we've taken notice.

14. Ryan Lochte
If we were ever drowning, having an Olympic gold medalist in swimming like Ryan Lochte to come save our lives would be very nice.

13. Desean Jackson
What's not to love about the Philadelphia Eagles Wide Receiver? He's known as a bit of a bad boy, but then again, ladies love a little naughtiness.
12. Victor Cruz
He’s not only good on the field but also the dance floor. We’re not sure if we rather watch him score touchdowns or dip us while dancing salsa.

11. Chris Paul
We would make Los Angeles Clippers starting PG a starter on our team any day. Add the fact that he seems to be the sweet, romantic type. No wonder we've been swooning all year.
10. Dwyane Wade
He’s been in the media for more than just playing with the Miami Heat and it’s only made the ladies love him even more. Not only has he snagged Hollywood's beauty Gabrielle Union, but also he loves and takes care of his kids. Our hearts never stood a chance!
9. Adam Scott
The PGA tours have never been this attractive. If all golf instructors look like handsome Mr. Scott, we'll sign us all up for lessons.

8. Carmelo Anthony
Who doesn’t love Carmelo Anthony (especially Knicks fans). Not only does he put in time and work for his team and family, but he's a man of his community. If we didn’t love La La like we do, we would be jealous of her for keeping this beau all to herself.
7. Kerry Rhodes
Where have they been hiding this one? This Jets baller seems to be NY's best kept secret, but we're exposing it. Plus, we wouldn’t mind getting tackled by him.
6. Matt Kemp
His smile is enough to make us thank Rihanna for putting him back on the market. This Dodgers outfielder could definitely make a homerun our way.
5. Cristiano Ronaldo
This soccer sensation is so hot it should be illegal. Watching him kick a ball all day is something we're definitely into.

4. Cam Newton
Let’s just name him “Million Dollar Smile.” Add in the fact that this Panthers QB is incredibly talented and... Yeah... Wow, that smile is captivating.

3. Serge Ibaka
What’s the French word for “fine"? We wouldn’t mind learning Spanish and French just to communicate with this Oklahoma City Thunder hunk. As long as he plays for OKC, we will always be fans of the team.
2. Derrick Rose
Recovering from a season-ending injury and welcoming a new baby, this MVP and point guard for Chicago Bulls understands how to hold things down. We can appreciate a fine man who's about his business, and we'll surely be awaiting his sweet return to the court.

1. David Oliver
Just take a second to look at him. (Seriously). Not only is he gorgeous and very deserving of this top spot but he’s also an Olympic track star. Though, he wouldn’t have to jump over any hurdles to impress us.
