WNBA STAR to JUDGE:

My Ex Scares the CRAP Outta Me!

You'd think the WNBA would be desperate for spectators -- but a player on the L.A. Sparks wants one fan to stay the hell away ... and she's asking for a restraining order to make sure that happens.

Sparks center Jantel Lavender filed the request for a restraining order last week -- asking a judge to keep her ex-boyfriend Adam Ashley at least 50 yards away from her and her family at all times ... including games.

According to the docs, Adam attended a recent Sparks game and followed Jantel home -- where the two got into a screaming match and Adam attempted to punch her.

The fight went on all night -- and Jantel claims she eventually called the police to kick Adam out. Jantel claims she had to call the police AGAIN the next day -- when Adam came back to continue his "angry rampage."

A judge will decide whether to grant the restraining order on September 6.

No way this girl has a boyfriend. This is probably a stunt cooked up by David Stern to widen WNBA popularity. FAIL.

I was always under the impression that restraining orders are of an emergency nature and are reviewed immediately. Sept 6th is quite a way off for someone if they truly feel their safety is at risk. I wonder why there is such a delay,and what would be the recourse if she was in fact,attacked and harmed while waiting for Sept 6th to roll around.

Wait! She had to call the cops to "kick Adam out?" So, she let a violent, screaming ex-boyfriend in her house? Girl obvioulsy stills want to deal with this maniac, which he knows, so I can't really muster any sympathy for her. Sorry.
