Kris Humphries or Danilo Gallinari: Who’s the Better Basketball Player?
Wetpaint Entertainment broke news that Kim Kardashian and E! producers first approached Danilo Gallinari and the New York Knicks to see if Danilo would be interested in a little New York romance with the reality star. The Italian NBA player famously turned Kim down, saying he’d be happy to meet Kim but wasn’t interested in a reality romance. Of course, this was all before she met and subsequently married a b-ball player by the name of Mr. Kris Humphries, who was then playing for the New Jersey Nets and is now a free agent.
In news heard ‘round the world, the reality starlet is now divorcing Kris. One of Kim’s main gripes with Kris was his incessant partying and lack of a work ethic. This got us wondering: Did Kim settle for a second-rate baller? While we have no idea if things would have worked out with Danilo had he agreed to pursue a romance with Kim, we’re interested in seeing how Kris compares to the Italian stallion (currently under contract with the Denver Nuggets).
