Kim was so eager to date a basketball player that E! were calling around teams to matchmake with NBA athletes, RadarOnline.com has learned. Wetpaint claim that E! Television staff contacted the New York Knicks to ask if hunky Italian basketball star Danilo Gallinari (this guy) would be interested in dating Kim.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Talk about a blow to Kris Humphries' ego.
Humphries was not the first choice of his current wife and reality star Kim Kardahsian, who initially inquired about dating Danilo Gallinari.
The former Knicks' three-man said no to dating, but yes to 'meeting' Kardashian. Hump said yes. And the covers of US Weekly have never been busier.
Sadly, Kim and Kris are reportedly on the rocks. Their two-month whirlwind is over because she has a job and he does not with the NBA lockout.
So perhaps Gallinari still has a chance. Except he's no longer in New York, which may not fit Kim's branding plan for a big city hubby.
