Not the NBA Lockout, not the stars exhibition tour and not former NBA players doing their thing in Europe. What Americans sought out the most today over the web, googling, with any Basketball context, was Kim Kardashian divorcing from her NBA hubbie Kris Humphries and whether Eva Longoria was getting it on with Matt Barnes.
Not Tony La Russa, one of the greatest managers in the history of Baseball retiring, not Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles after their wonderful win over the Dallas Cowboys or Big Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers beating the New England Patriots. The most interesting thing today, or the two most interesting things were tabloid material stories.
Kim Kardashian, a serial WAG and publicity hunter with no actual talent, who’s already dated two NFL players, Reggie Bush and Mario Austin, SUPRISINGLY, filed for Divorce from her NBA husband, Kris Humphries, 72 days after they got married. She was already married once, ten years ago, actually lasting four years. The married life this time was on camera, earning the Kardashian company around 18 million dollars. Love, Love, Love.
Eva Longoria? A long time NBA WaG of Tony Parker until the divorce had to turn down rumors she’s dating Matt Barnes of the Los Angeles Lakers. Someone has to keep it interesting in LA.
While watching Google Trends today, the Philadelphia Eagles did peak for a short while in the Top 20 before fading away. Barnes, Humphries, Longoria and Kardashian were there all day.
