DeShawn Stevenson Hearts LeToya Luckett
Yup, it's true. DeShawn Stevenson and LeToya Luckett are going public with their long-simmering relationship, and (I believe) this is (maybe) the first place to report it.
LeToya, for those who don't follow this stuff, is the former Destiny's Child member whose debut album last year reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and got some quite good mentions in the press, earning her various award nominations and a role co-hosting the Soul Train Music Awards next month. Stevenson told me he took LeToya to Gilbert's 25th birthday party, and that they hit it off, and that "we're a couple now."
"She's a good person," he said. "I'm getting better in my basketball, bringing my level up, and she just went platinum with her CD and she's coming up, so it's just working out."
Luckett was at the Wizards' game last night; Stevenson said it was her sixth of the season. He responded with 5 rebounds, 4 assists and a season-high 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting, which isn't a bad night all in all. Incidentally, he also had one of the best post-game interview sessions of the season (more on that in a bit). So I asked whether he plays better when his sweetie's in the crowd.
"Always," he said.
I asked why.
"Look at her," he said.
See, Stevenson might wind up being not only the best value in the entire league to GM-types this season, but also to bloggers.
