    Los Angeles Laker Sasha Vujacic and tennis star Maria Sharapova could produce a litter of amazing athletes.

    Some guys have all the luck.

    Los Angeles Lakers star Sasha Vujacic, fresh off a NBA title win last season, is now engaged to his girlfriend, international tennis supserstar Maria Sharapova, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

    The couple were engaged on the first anniversay of their meeting at a friend's barbecue. No wedding date has yet been set. He reportedly proposed at his home in Manhattan Beach.

    It will be the first marriage for the Russian Sharapova, 23, and the Slovenian Vujacic, 26.

    The only question for Vujacic is which ring will be bigger: the one he gave to Sharapova or the one he'll receive for being an NBA champion.

    Sharapova is a former world No. 1 player, but a rash of injuries have dropped her to 18th in the world.
