He of course is the star point guard for the Chicago Bulls and will soon lead his team in the playoff picture. He is 24 and she is just 23 years old, which is a good match on the emotional scale.

According to her fashion website,
Mieka’s passion for the art fashion began in Kindergarten class while wearing a custom two-piece leather skirt suit on picture day. When other children were pulling candy and coins out of their pockets, Mieka was pulling hers out of her pint size Gucci purse.
LOL. I don’t think she is kidding either. By the way, the local party girl likes her.
