It’s only been a few weeks of NBA basketball but the Wizards were already beginning to be the butt of jokes around the league, starting at a horrendous 0-12 but they finally broke that streak as they got their first victory in a close game last night over the Trailblazers 84-82. My favorite pun about the Wizards being win-less was their name change to the “Lizards” because you know, their team only has Ls. Anyways, now that the Wizards have finally got their first victory the bigger question is, when will their NEXT win come? They have a few tough games in a row (at Knicks, Heat, at Hawks, Warriors) but then they go to New Orleans who still might be without their rookie sensation Anthony Davis. If the Wizards aren’t able to win that game, they’re looking at another tough stretch and it won’t be until the 3rd week of December until they face an opponent that they can compete against. Of course this is professional basketball and upsets do happen throughout the season but 1-21 is a really possibility for these Wizards. Keep an eye out for that.
The Brooklyn Nets were in Boston last night, taking on the Celtics in what could be seen as two of a few teams that can take down the Heat in the eastern conference. The game started out with some good basketball, both teams playing well but the Nets began to pull away in the second as just as the Celtics began to cut into the lead a fight/skirmish occurred between PG Rajon Rondo and F Kris Humphries. The incident occurred after Celtics forward Kevin Garnett took a hard from Humphries and Rondo (right next to the play under the basket) wasn’t too fond of the foul so he basically tried to retaliate in defense of his teammate. Were Rondo’s actions uncalled for? Yes and no. It was ok that he stood up for his teammate but Rondo was too aggressive and it resulted in himself and Humphries being ejected. Anyone who has played sports knows that sometimes in the heat of battle, tempers flare but this was an important game for Rondo as his assist streak was on the line. A little less emotional next time Rondo. Gerald Wallace of the Nets was a little too aggressive while trying to break up the fight so he also earned an ejection from the referees. Also, Paul Pierce got his ankles broken by Joe Johnson during the 4th quarter.
James Harden returned to OKC for the first time since the trade to the Rockets but his return was spoiled pretty quickly by the Thunders’ defense and Durant’s 37 points. Not only did Harden shoot bad (3-16) but he also had six of his shots blocked by his former team. While other teams seem to be taking the spotlight early this season (Knicks, Lakers, Nets etc.) i’m not surprised to see the Heat cruising along where they left off last season. This is their title to lose so we’ll see how other teams respond because when the Heat are next on a team’s schedule, it’s the biggest test of the season. The Heat are the best team so far, followed closely by three powerhouses in the western conference (Grizzlies, Spurs, Thunder) and my fifth best team is…the Brooklyn Nets. Don’t get mad at me Moe, I know your Knicks are doing well to start the season but i’m going to wait until Stoudemire’s return and see how that goes before I include them in the NBA’s elite.
Quick reminder: NFL action tonight as the Saints visit the Falcons. If you’re not feeling that game there two good NBA games tonight as well (Spurs at Heat; Nuggets at Warriors) so there’s plenty to watch tonight for sports fans. Enjoy!

You’d think Kris Humphries would at least come with a “Sorry, I fucked up” comment, but the dude hasn’t let out a peep following his sudden separation from Kim Kardashian on Halloween day after only being married for 72 days. I still have a funny feeling about all this divorce bullshit and think it’s some sort of marketing ploy to build ratings for the upcoming season of their hit reality show. If it’s cheap & low, the Kardashians are all over it! Money over everything, baby!!
Any of you bastards have interesting theories about why this guy is so damn quiet?
Last Thursday we were speculating the couple probably won’t make it until summer, 2012–assuming they could fight past the holidays into the new year, of course. Long story short, TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian is seeking a divorce on the grounds of ‘irreconcilable differences’ and the date date of separation is listed as today (October 31). On Planet Kim, “irreconcilable differences” means “I wanted to go out dinner with my entire family & he wanted it to be just us two for once” or of course, “He keeps missing his bi-weekly mani/pedi appointments and that proves he’s not committed to the marriage.”
To get things moving in her favor, Kim has even hired top celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has dealt with the likes of Britney Spears, Maria Shriver & Angelina Jolie. If Kim can make money getting married, there’s no reason she can’t cash in with the divorce! Look for the whole thing to be televised, complete with a star-studded divorce party!
So, what caused these two to call things off so quickly? Was the wedding just a scheme for the Kardashian family to earn more money and fame or was it all the pressure from the media? One thing is for sure, though, Kim’s evil mom Kris Jenner probably had a major hand in the breakup.
I swear, I never wanna wish ill on a newly wed couple, but I just can’t see this working. The fact that Kris Humphries would make the big decision to marry a chick like Kim Kardashian automatically says a lot about his personality & lack of judgement, but I guess that’s the reason divorce was created, right? It’s just a matter of time until the dude gets tired of all her bullshit and hits the eject button. I give them until next summer—that’s assuming Kris can make it through the Kardashian Holidays.
On a much lighter note, Kim & her man-pup Kris hit Izakaya restaurant last night for dinner in West Hollywood. The restaurant is part of the Katsuya group, the same joint Kim & family love hitting over & over again.
Anybody remember if Kim Kardashian was sucking Ray J’s toes in her sex tape b/c judging by how often her husband Kris Humphries hits the nail salon, I’m assuming she likes more than just Mr. Ding Dong in her mouth.
These were snapped earlier today as the couple were spotted hitting up Clover Nails in NYC’s trendy Lower East Side.

I wonder how this will go over w/ his teammates? Wait, does he even play basketball anymore?! Then again, I’m sure a lot of of NBA players get manis & pedis, but I’m sure they do it in the privacy of their pimp-palaces!!
Kris Humpries is contributing to long-running trend of blurring the lines between straight, metro-sexual & gay dudes (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but I guess when you’re married to a chick who makes a living off visiting nail salons, then you just start doing shit w/out considering the douchebag ramifications.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are in NYC having recently come back from their honeymoon in Italy. The couple attended a party held at Capitale to celebrate their marriage and according to Life & Style magazine, while in Italy it was reported that Kim bought a pregnancy test fueling rumors (and thus keeping her relevant for another day) that her and Kris, who doesn’t have a contract and is stuck in this lockout, are about to start a family… like we care. According to a source:
“She came on her own and bought two pregnancy tests. She didn’t speak any Italian and looked a bit embarrassed. The counter staff didn’t know who she was, but we get Keeping Up With the Kardashians back home, so I knew that she was famous.” [Source]

Considering that Scott Disick tried negotiating some ridiculous terms with E! over his son Mason’s contract to appear on Kourtney and Kim Take New York, it wouldn’t surprise us if Scott tried to snake his way into Kris’ next contract, you know, once the NBA lockout ends and Kris can cash in on his career year, which just happened to be in a contract year as with all professional athletes. Either way, no matter what Kris gets for his next contract, we’re sure the whole Kardashian clan will get their piece even with all the money they’re raking in exploiting themselves where we can’t avoid them.
