The list of random dudes passing through the life of Britney Spears since her split with Kevin Federline last fall is not short. And it might be getting taller - 6′8″ to be exact.

Just when we thought that Britney loved Kobe Byrant, it turns out she may have another Los Angeles Lakers player in her sights: Luke Walton.

Rumor has it that Walton, the son of NBA great Bill Walton, is all set to go on a date with Britney Spears. Yes. The following was reported today by the Daily Star:

The pop princess is set to go out on a date with L.A. Lakers star Luke Walton, and his pals say they will be perfect partners. Britney, 25, is fresh out of rehab and Luke, 27, is on the wagon during his team's run-in to the NBA playoffs.

Whatever that means. Good writing, Daily Star.

"His people and her people are trying to thrash out a date when they can have a bite to eat and then we'll see what happens," a source says. 

Personally, The Hollywood Gossip staff doubts this is legitimate. Luke Walton isn't exactly hurting in the looks department, and living in Los Angeles as a member of the Lakers, he probably gets his share of chicks.

Not that we don't love Britney Spears. God knows we do.

But a bald, unstable single mother of two with serious addiction issues, a possible eating disorder and definite depression problems - and who's stalked by hordes of paparazzi every day and night - might not be on his radar.

Hayden Panettiere, on the other hand…

I miss it here so much! I love it so much! It makes me it's kinda like bittersweet coming here because I used to live here for two years. And when I come here, it's like, man, I wish I had my apartment here still.
