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

Kyle Lowry and his wife Ayahna seem like they have an awesome relationship. Imagine being a professional NBA point guard and being married to a woman who could reasonably compete with you in a game of one-on-one. That’s right, Ayahna Lowry (formerly Ayahna Cornish) was a serious court talent in her own right.

The two are childhood sweethearts and have a son named Karter, who, endowed with superhuman basketball genes, will likely become a hyper-talented hoops prodigy. Kyle and Ayahna attended the same high school, where Ayahna set the all-time scoring record. While Kyle grew as a college baller at Villanova, Ayahna was busy scoring 1600 points at St. Joseph’s, leading her squad as captain and being named SJU MVP.

Kyle has developed into a leader for the Toronto Raptors, and his relationship with Raptors head coach Dwayne Casey is apparently quite strong. According to Yahoo Sports, when asked whether he had any issues with Casey coming in as coach, Lowry responded, “I’ll play my ass off for him.” That’s what a coach wants to hear! Casey has compared Lowry to Gary Payton (whom he knew from being an assistant coach with the Sonics). Like Payton, Lowry used to blow up on players if they made mistakes, but he now has learned to temper his frustration and communicate. Kyle's wife would likely understand. It must be something to be able to relate so directly with your spouse about competitive basketball.

Mazeltov! Lance Stephenson’s girlfriend Feby Torres gave birth to a healthy little guy on March 18th.

Baby, Lance Bornready Stephenson, was born the same night the Indiana Pacers star was scheduled to do a paid appearance at Greenhouse NYC. And as a man of his word, Lance Stephenson made it to both events.

After hour of awaiting the birth of his second child with the Brooklyn native Feby Torres, Lance Jr. was born at 9:18pm. Can you guess where Lance Stephenson was at midnight? That’s correct; he rolled into the club late Tuesday night, popped a bottle of Bottega Rose champagne and sipped on D'Ussé cognac with some of his pals from the Pacers. (Promoters get pretty ticked off when a celeb no-shows). But after he put in his time at the club, Lance Stephenson managed to keep his prior commitment and returned to the hospital to be with family. He also played in a game the next night and dropped 21 points and 9 rebounds, leading the team in scoring and rebounds. Even though the Knicks won 92-86, Lance Stephenson certainly isn’t to blame for that.

But he may be to blame for his breakup with K. Michelle last October. K. Michelle and Lance Stephenson broke up after he allegedly cheated on the recording artist/reality show personality. Then in December, rumors abound that K. Michelle and Lance Stephenson got back together. Three months later, Feby Torres gave birth to baby Lance. Perhaps K. Michelle's suspicions of Lance cheating were right.

Whatever went down, Lance Stephenson and Feby Torres are proud parents. And on march 19th Feby Torres, a communications, media studies and broadcasting major at LaGuardia Community College, posted the announcement on facebook.

“My Love was born last night at 9:18pm just want to thank the man above for getting us through it though I am not feeling well and little man is in icu god is still good and everything is going to be alright! Happy his dad is here for him love my boys and my Lylah baby.”

Congrats to you both on your little bundle of joy!
