Some NBA players whose high school relationships spill into their professional years have an understanding, spoken or unspoken, regarding fidelity. One can’t help but wonder about this matter with Trey Burke’s girlfriend Day Day. In the hypothetical that this arrangement exists for Trey Burke's girlfriend, we can now guess what keeps things afloat.

The two have been together since high school, and word has spread around the internet (along with an instragram picture) of young Day Day becoming pregnant as of January 2014. This will definitely pose a challenge for the 21 year-old rookie, Trey. Or maybe it won’t; maybe that’s where the understanding comes in? Just speculating, people. On the plus side, it likely means Day Day and “‘Lil Trey” will be taken care of financially for quite some time. Day Day is very pretty, and even though Trey hasn’t officially announced anything or even mentioned the pregnancy, I’m sure it’s more a good thing than a bad thing for Day Day.

Speaking of good things, Trey is a serious young talent. Although he needs to bring his field goal percentage up (.378), he’s shown some lightning quickness, shoots .893 from the line, and is dishing out 5.6 dimes per game. One can’t help but be impressed by the youngster being a starter at the tender age of 21. Don’t be surprised If you see him on the back nine with fellow barely-old-enough-to-drink star Jordan Spieth. The younger they start, the sooner they arrive.

Zach Britton's Wife Courtney Britton

Zach Britton's wife Courtney Britton (formerly girlfriend Courtney Leggett) is on her way to becoming a lawyer. She attended Southern Methodist University and finished up in 2011. By my calculations, she has had more than enough time to pass the bar and become a full-timer. And guess what? She is a full timer. After a quick search on the internet, you can find Courtney on LinkedIn officially listed as Mrs. Courtney Britton, Attorney at Law. That, my friends, is pretty great. How often do you see a player wife lawyer? She also practices law in the greater Los Angeles area, which tells me Zach and Courtney don't live in Baltimore full time. I can't say I blame them.

Zach himself throws one of the meanest sinkers in the game. He's been able to maintain an awesome 1.70 ERA this season after playing in 69 games and 74 innings. The man is throwing a 53% whiff rate with his slider as well (according to Wikipedia). All in all, Zach's wife Courtney has found herself a real gunner. Courtney had to be a very supportive girl during Zach's slow climb through the minors on a quest to become dominant in triple A. It took him four years to become a full-time Major leaguer, but now that he's developed, Courtney sort of doesn't have to even keep being a lawyer, but I'm thinking she's not likely to quit.

I'm curious what kind of litigation Courtney is practicing in and around LA. It'd be pretty awesome if she ended up working for Shawn Chapman Holley, who is Lindsay Lohan's lawyer. Zach's wife could end up living a more interesting life than him! Although most lawyers have a long, arduous, brain-frying amount of boring paperwork to slog through, and the job itself is generally not very glamorous. Unless, of course, you happen to practice law around Hollywood. In that case, all bets are off.

Denard Span's Girlfriend Shadonna Copeland

Denard Span' girlfriend Shadonna Copeland is an honorary member of the Dream Foundation. This is good karma for the young lady, because raising money for charity is probably the best thing athletes' wives and girlfriends can do outside of becoming directly engaged in charitable causes, and that is just what the Dream Foundation does.

Denard's girlfriend accompanied him to a Dream Foundation event recently where the foundation was able to raise $243,000 by auctioning off collectibles and memorabilia. That's a pretty solid haul if you ask me. Almost a quarter million bucks for some signed bats and smelly used jerseys. Nice work, folks. It's always nice to see people overpaying for silly stuff just to help people in need.

There's no complaints coming from the Nationals organization about Denard's performance on the field this year, as I'm sure there are none from his girlfriend Shadonna. Not only is he leading the league in total hits (with a nice .300 average) but he's hauling in $6.5 million and next year bumping right up to $9 million. That's plenty incentive to stay with Mr. Span (other than being in love and all that sentimental side business). These two do seem quite happy together, and Shadonna is sporting some nice gowns and clothes at the few public appearances she's made with Denard this year. She definitely has a classy sense of style. At home, Span got some nice quality time with his girlfriend Shadonna after banging his knee. It was probably a good idea to let him rest in order to really gear up for the playoffs. Being on a team that will remain in first regardless of wins or losses is always nice if you've got to rest up an injury, and Shadonna will surely let him recoup in order to keep the hit machine cranking along.
