Pop tart Britney Spears is the newest L.A. Laker season ticket holder since her release from rehab. The reason plays forward for those Lakers: Luke Walton. Walton is the son of former NBA and UCLA great Bill Walton.
When asked what the attraction was between the two, an anonymous spokesman on Britney's staff said: "She got tired of little bittie Kevin. She wanted a bigger man, in more ways than one, if you know what I mean. Luke can grip a basketball while Kevin could not wrap his hands around a tangerine.
Team publicity reps for the Lakers offered the following: "Luke is used to being on the road, so he wants a girl who is well traveled also. He also grew up around people like Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Michael Jordan and others that shaved their heads. He likes the bald look, and Britney can give that to him, ... on top and bottom.
When asked how long the relationship would last, the Spears camp was non-commital. Laker reps said that "the playoffs usually end by June, and so do the road relationships."
