NBA Player, Porn Star Get Cozy With Twitter Bet

2009 is already assured to go down in the annals of pop culture/tech history as The Year of Twitter. No doubt it’s a powerful tool; not only did it allow one-named celebrities like Shaq and Oprah to connect with their millions of fans, it somehow managed the herculean feat of getting people to actually pay attention to Ashton Kutcher. It’s a tool that, despite its many limitations, has brought people from different worlds together as friends, 140 characters at a time.

Detroit Pistons rookie DaJuan Summers (@dsummers35) might not have the celebrity status of Shaq yet, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have fun with Twitter too. While Shaq is busy flirting with David Beckham on Twitter, Summers is off having a Twitter bet with porn star Valerie Luxe, the “baddest, realest, funniest bitch on Twitter” (@ValerieLuxe). Guess what the winner gets…

First off, the bet, thanks to DETROIT4LYFE. What would an NBA player and a porn star have as a common goal…what could bring them together in a friendly wager? Ah, of course - attention whoring:

Summers is a rookie who has yet to play a regular-season NBA game and Luxe is, well, a porn star so we’ll give them a pass for the (relatively) low bar here. But inquiring minds want to know - what sort of “rewards” does a porn star give out in a bet?

What kind of mind- (or otherwise) blowing freakiness is “taking to the waterpark” a euphemism for? Is Luxe a properly certified and licensed massage therapist, trained at an accredited massage school? So many questions left unanswered. Meanwhile, I’m tweeting my lunch plans to friends. Life isn’t fair.
