Klay Thompson’s girlfriend Shaila Singh is, well, good at looking good. That is- she’s a former Miss Pismo Beach, and she competes in beauty competitions. In 2011 she posted an unintentionally funny video of herself and trailing makeup-and-preparations entourage titled “Behind The Tiara” on youtube. Hey, her business is beauty, not storyboarding!

Klay has been with Shaila for a few years, but is in the very unusual position of not having access to his own money to wine and dine her. All of his salary payments go directly to his father, Mychal, who himself had a 13 year NBA career and was the 1978 number one draft pick. In fact, Mychal Thompson gives him an actual weekly allowance of $300, as he’s explained in numerous interviews. When asked about what Klay should do about taking his girlfriend on a date, he is quoted on Bleacher Report as saying, ““Go to Langers in Oakland … Go to the grocery store and get a nice bottle of wine for $30…”

Well, at least Shaila can get into Warriors games for free, and she’s got plenty to watch since Klay has been seeing a lot of minutes and really producing some solid numbers. At 6’7”, he’s one of the more serious threats as a stop-and-pop sharpshooter on the west coast. His free throw and 3-point percentages are also pretty decent at 42% and 80% respectively. Hopefully next year when his contract is bumped up to $3,000,000, Klay’s weekly allowance will rise past $300. Shaila is crossing her fingers!


 

Jonas Valanciunas' wife Egle Acaite

Jonas Valanciunas' wife Egle Acaite is a good old-fashioned Lithuanian beauty. Blonde, slender, and a shopaholic (she maintains a shopping website to track which items she's bought and which items she wants), 24 year-old Egle will suffice as a trophy if the Raps can't get an actual one. To be fair, the championship trophy and Egle Acaite aren't mutually exclusive, and who wouldn't be happy to have a devoted fashionista as a wife? Mr. Valanciunas can now have his giant-sized suits made with distinction and style.

Jonas (pronounced Yo-nas) got himself noticed by NBA scouts for basically being the best young Lithuanian player in the world and leading them to a slew of FIBA championships in under-16, under-18, and under-19 classes. When he got drafted by the Raptors 5th overall in 2011, he started most of the games he was available and has since become a cornerstone for the team, averaging 11 points, 9 boards, and shooting a terrific 53%. Twenty-one years old, folks- it's money in the bank for Toronto if he improves his low-post game and builds on his foundation.

Big V was charged with drunk driving a little over a week ago. Everybody makes mistakes, and the day after he was charged, he apologized to his teammates and went out to score a career-high 26 points to beat the Sixers. According to Toronto National Post, Kyle Lowry has said that Jonas has become "much more aggressive. Much more hungry. He wants the ball. Tonight he was literally yelling at me to give him the ball. And I've got to do nothing but give him the ball, because he's our big fella." Egle Acaite agrees, Kyle.

Is Jimmy Butler's girlfriend Miley Cyrus?

I get the sense that hooking up with Miley Cyrus is much harder than it may appear to the casual pop enthusiast. The promotional strategy of purveying an image of outrageousness and forcing reactions out of people has worked soundly for her, but when it comes to actually permitting someone to enter the sacred temple of twerk, my guess is you’ve got to bring some strong game. Guess what? Strong game is what Jimmy Butler’s got, and if rumors are correct, Jimmy Butler’s girlfriend Miley Cyrus digs him!

According to TerezOwens.com, the two got together during the B96 Summer Bash in June of 2013. They apparently got along well, which was unfortunate for her now ex-boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. Jimmy is known to be quite the fan of the ladyfolk, frequenting the clubs in t-shirts that all but scream “get your virility here!” Since the timeframe that the two are rumored to have gotten together, there's been nothing else to hit the blogosphere. Considering the constant attention Miley Cyrus gets and the swag of Jimmy Butler, it's probably safe to assume that if this relationship had developed beyond an initial courting, we'd know a lot more about it. To answer the question in the title of this post, Is Jimmy Butler's girlfriend Miley Cyrus? No, probably not.

Let’s not forget that young Jimbo is a ballplayer and a fast-improving starter of every game for the Bulls this year. He’s played an average of almost 39 minutes in every game they've played, and he's posted an average of a little over 13 points, improving his output every year since his rookie season back in 2011. He’s also a relative steal for the Bulls at $1.1 million, a number which is sure to get renegotiated if he stays the course. It’s his life, and he can do what he wants
