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.

UPDATE 05/26/2014: Meet Gordon Hayward's wife Robyn Hayward.
Though the two have been together for a relatively quick period of time, and engaged for an even quicker period of time, the two tied the knot over Memorial Day Weekend, 2014. Plenty of Hayward's Jazz teammates attended the nuptials, and with his impending restricted free agency, it may be a farewell of sorts for the shooting guard guaranteed to have plenty of suitors. Hope Robyn is up for a move, because our money says Boston is in his future to reunite with college coach Brad Stevens. With an 8 figure payday on the horizon, and a brand new bride, everything's turning up Gordon.
Congratulations to the newlyweds.
On the surface, Utah Jazz shooting guard Gordon Hayward seems like he belongs in Utah. The nice white kid from the small school (Butler), who loves shooting threes. For his sake, we hope that Gordon Hayward's girlfriend, who is soon to be Gordon Hayward's wife Robin Van Vliet likes Salt Lake City, because she'll be sticking around for a while.
The last we knew, Gordon Hayward's girlfriend Kolbi Killingback, was in the picture having dated since college. In the time that's passed, Hayward and Van Vliet have begun dating, and proudly took to Twitter and Instagram to announce the news on Christmas Day:
Merry Christmas to everyone out there! Hope it's a good one! Mine was especially good bc SHE SAID YES!!!! So thrilled I get to marry my best friend and such an amazing person @robynvanvliet! I love you!!! - @gdhayward - Instagram
Soo happy I get to marry this babe .. Finally engaged to the love of my life - @robynvanvliet - Instagram
Hayward isn't shy about going public with his relationship, often posting pictures of Van Vliet and telling the world how much he's missing her while on the road. Not much else is known about Van Vliet, but Hayward is certainly proud to be marrying her. Congratulations to the newly engaged couple.

It's been a long time since the Slam Dunk contest has been relevant. Yes, in recent past Blake Griffin and Nate Robinson have provided some hype, but overall the event is nothing like it was back in the 90's. All of that said, the show just go on. The defending champ is Jeremy Evans and his wife Korrie will certainly be watching him attempt to repeat.
Jeremy Evan's wife Korrie hasn't been in that role for very long - the couple just got married on August 25, 2012. The ceremony took place in Savannah, GA with teammate Gordon Hayward and coach Tyrone Corbin in attendance. Evans wisely let Korrie do all of the planning, but is quick to say he was ready to help when called upon. The couple met in college, both studying at Western Kentucky.
Evans is just another in a recent string of second round draft picks to make an impact in the NBA. For a while it was almost a given that if you weren't drafted in the first round, your career was probably going to be pretty short (if you even had one at all). While the majority of his notoriety comes from the dunk contest, Evans has been serviceable off the bench for the Utah Jazz. Just goes to show that with good scouting, you can pick up the likes of Monta Ellis, Marc Gasol, Glen Davis, Danny Green, Mario Chalmers and Omer Asik, just to name a few. Evans personally just got the sign he'll be around for a but, signing a 3 year, $5.5 million deal after the 2012 season.
