So apparently Kim Kardashian wanted to watch former Knick Danilo Gallinari take a sheet…
“Kardashian was so eager to land a basketball player, the site says, that she had producers at E!, the home of her reality shows, contact NBA teams about potential beaus. Sources say that producers at the network called the Knicks to find out if the team’s handsome Italian import, Gallinari, was single.
They asked if he would be interested in dating her and being on a reality show,” a source told the site. “Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show … Even though E! explained it would be great for his career, Gallinari turned the offer down.”
Kardashian reportedly wanted a New York sports star to date to coincide with the debut of her series “Kourtney & Kim Take New York” in January. Apparently she settled on the Tri-State area and Nets player Humphries. The pair started dating in December 2010.” from the NY Post
So Kim wanted the Italian Stallion!! Do we need anymore proof that she is…you know? How do you feel if you are Kris Humphries? Actually knowing Kris Humphries he probably doesn’t even care.
Personally I don’t really care about this story. Everybody knows about Kim Kardashian and her plethora of high profile relationships and sex tapes. While she is very attractive, I think Gallo made the right choice here. Good for him to stay out of the whole media circus that comes along with any member of that Kardashian family. This story is just so funny. Way to go Kim. Once again you look like a total ass (no pun intended) and you will likely have an annulment on your hands.
Throughout these negotiations, I have firmly been optimistic every step along the way. That has been a mistake as the NBA has disappointed me every step of the way. Despite holding marathon meetings after marathon meetings, the NBA and its players have failed to come close to making a deal much less punching a deal across the goal line. They have gone three and out every drive for the past two years. Despite how poorly talks have gone, there is once again a great deal of optimism surrounding this weeks discussions. Once again I feel confident a deal will be struck soon but this time I feel more confident than ever.
I believe there is a 70% chance that a deal, in principle of course, will be struck by Sunday night. There are multiple reasons for my optimism on this.
- When a deal in principle is reached, there will be a 30 day period in which free agency will begin, training camps will begin, the exhibition season will occur and the new CBA will be drafted and ratified. If the NBA is to squeeze in an 82 game season, they will need to have the season start in early December at the latest. If a deal in principle is reached by Sunday, October 30th, the season hypothetically could start December 1st. That would save the NBA’s trademark Christmas Day games and would allow the NBA to potentially fit in an 82 game season.
- Multiple NBA stars have dropped out of the “World Tour” that was supposed to take place promoting the game all over the world. This was something the stars had their eyes set on and were excited for. What possible reasons would make them drop out? Maybe they know something we don’t. Maybe a deal is close.
- I believe the players must by now realize that they have very little leverage in these negotiations as reality has begun to set in with them. Owners are willing to miss a season. Players need a season.
At the end of the day, the owners gain more leverage every day while the players lose theirs. The owners actually benefit and make money from this lockout. They cash in on TV deals (despite no broadcasted games), they do not have to pay the players and they do not have to pay arena workers. The players gain nothing from this lockout, they only lose millions (or billions depending on the length of the lockout) of dollars they will never get back, they lose time off of their careers and they lose their spotlight in the public eye. This is the time for the players to cut the best deal they will get and I believe that will happen this week.
