20 Biggest Mama’s Boys in Sports


Mother’s Day is quickly approaching. It’s time to start scouting gifts and thinking of ways to express your gratitude for all the years your mom has helped you find lost items over the phone or made you soup when you were sick. Some sons, however, show their love all year along. And judging by the popularity of most of these guys, we’re guessing they are never given much slack over it either.

Our partners at Bleacher Report have compiled a list of the 20 biggest mama’s boys in sports. From swimmers like Ryan Lochte to basketball players like Denver Nuggets’ JaVale McGee, these stars worship their moms (two moms for Kenneth Faried). 

Inspired to start showing your own mother some love? Check out the 2012 mother’s day gift guide for ideas, and stay tuned for this year’s best gift picks.
