Brace yourself, for I bring very important NBA news.

Before Kim Kardashian hooked up with Kris Humphries, she actually was interested in another basketball player. The Italian Stallion, Danilo Gallinari. According to the celebrity gossip site, Kardashian just wanted a basketball player, no matter how she could get it.
A source tells Wetpaint Entertainment that last fall, a representative of E!, the network that airs the many Kardashian reality shows, approached the New York Knicks to find out if Danilo Gallinari, the studly Italian who was then a forward on the team, would be interested in dating Kim. According to our source, both E! and Kim were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and the Knicks were their first choice.

(The show, which first aired in January 2011, begins its second season next month.) Gallinari — then 22 to Kim’s 30 — was told that such a move would be good for his career and that he would garner lots of media exposure. Gallinari declined, saying he would be happy to meet Kim but wasn't interested in dating or being a reality-show star
An arranged romance? Just like reality TV! How fitting!

Gallinari of course was traded away to Denver at mid-season in the Carmelo Anthony trade, so the producers wouldn't have gotten their New York romance after all. But since Gallinari didn't work out, it was on to Humphries. Was that set up? Yes, but by Jordan Farmar, supposedly.

"I introduced them in New York and they have come a long way since," Farmar told Us Weekly. "They both fit each other. He is a good kid. He is from the country ... So he kind of slows it down, and she is fast paced and has a lot of stuff going on, so they kind of balance each other out."

So there you go. And this concludes your Very Important NBA News Post.

Kim Kardashian wanted Danilo Gallinari first?

Does this qualify as news?  Everyone knows that anything Kim is doing is for her public image...including her wedding.  How many people do you know that make money on their wedding?  I personally find her to be an attention seeking whore who is famous for sex and her deceased father's involvment in the OJ, reason to celebrate for sure.  That entire family is an absolute mess, brought on themselves by themselves.  At some point the steam has to run out of this engine and all that will be left will be the decaying carcases of the once "self proclaimed" important Kardashians.
