Meet Lainie Fritz, your new sideline crush.

A furor erupted on Twitter as people begged to know the identity of Hayes’ courtside companion.
I know they are showing Elvin Hayes on TV, but you're not looking at Elvin Hayes on TV.

Two things about this photo:
1) Elvin Hayes is one of the best basketball players of all-time, is 72 years old and looks a lot closer to 52.

It wasn’t long before the woman was revealed to be Lainie Fritz, a sports reporter for Channel 2 Houston… and the daughter of Tulane’s head football coach, Willie Fritz.

In an interview with Click 2 Houston, Fritz revealed that it wasn’t so much a date as it was an opportunity for her enjoy the game with one of the sport’s all-time greats.
“Big E is a great friend,” she said. “I enjoyed sitting next to the legend and hearing his expert analysis on the game as it played out.”
We have just one question left: Is Fritz single?
