As if the Lakers hadn’t already gone over-the-top Hollywood with the addition of Khloe Kardashian to the basketball family after she and Lamar Odom were married during the off-season.

Now comes word that struggling backup guard Sasha Vujacic and tennis star Maria Sharapova might be dating after the two were seen cuddling at a recent U2 concert.

In a recent posting, the website SportsByBrooks reported that CNBC reporter Darren Rovell revealed on Twitter the possibility of this power union earlier today. That was followed a few hours later by Matt Cronin of tweeting that it was indeed true.

If Sharapova can somehow get ‘The Machine’ to rediscover his shooting touch, Lakers fans figure to embrace the move. But if things get worse ... get ready for the Yoko-pova jokes.
