Baby scoop

Posted by Jayda Evans

Yes, it's odd that Sparks All-Star Lisa Leslie named her daughter Lauren Jolie, which could be shortened to "LJ," the same acronym of the reigning three-time MVP's rival -- Storm forward Lauren Jackson. And the baby was even born on the 15th -- Jackson's uniform number. But after speaking to Leslie's mother at halftime of the LA-Seattle game, there is no secret agenda.

Turns out Leslie did like the name Lauren and the middle name is a tribute to both grandfathers, whose names are Joe and Lee. Grandma says mother and baby are home now and that lil' LJ sleeps through the night, a nice treat for the new parents.

Leslie trained up until she was seven months pregnant and plans to play in the upcoming Olympics, so she'll be back on the court and most likely in a Sparks uniform soon.
