We were all first introduced to Heidi Hoback last month, when NBA superstar LeBron James was caught sliding into DMs and trying to flirt with the incredibly stunning Instagram model. After seeing pics of Heidi, we can hardly fault Bron for shooting his shot — even if he is married with three kids and has a reputation to protect. We mean, it was harmless and childish flirting, but, still, LeBron should never be caught pseudo macking a pretty much unknown Instagram model like Heidi Hoback.
Anyway, while we can't agree with the move that LeBron James did, we're certainly glad he did so, because he singlehandedly put the name Heidi Hoback on the map! Of course, it doesn't really hurt that the gal is about as stunning as they come, boasting an incredible figure, dizzying curves and eyes that could easily pierce the skin of a rhino from hundreds of yards away.
Although LeBron James first got us thinking more about the name Heidi Hoback, since then, it's clear that the Instagram model is taking full advantage of the limelight. Seemingly overnight, Heidi's Instagram following rose to over 153,000, and it's clear that the 20-something red head has a look that plenty of people like.
"...honestly was just having a normal day,” Hoback said. “Going over and hunting and then this wild encounter with a buck happened and it just so happened to be right when LeBron DMed me, so I thought I would share that.”
“I took to Snapchat to share it with my followers because I thought it would be a funny story. You know, the message was pretty innocent as far as I know. And then some of my followers informed me that he was married, which I had no clue because I don’t follow him. I wouldn’t consider myself a fan so I wasn’t aware of that at all. I guess that’s why it’s been made into a bigger deal than I originally thought it’d be.”
Heidi Hoback is quickly becoming one of our favorite women on Instagram, so thanks to LeBron James for indirectly introducing us to her. Not only is James a superstar talent on the hardwood, but he can identify superstar talent off it, too!
