Kris Humhries wasn’t Kim Kardashian’s first choice

It’s been 72-days and Kim Kardashian has already filed for divorce from Kris Humphries. But was Humphries Kim K’s first choice for a husband? Wetpaint.com is reporting the Kardashian camp originally approached New York Knicks Danilo Gallinari to date the reality star.

According to the site: “They asked if he would be interested in dating her and being on a reality show,” a source said. “Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show, even though E! explained it would be great for his career, Gallinari turned the offer down.”

As Thejerseychaser posted back in December, Gallinari was linked to Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg. Despite being a “reality” show, Kim needed a storyline for the first season of “Kim and Kourtney Take New York” and wanted to date a New York athlete.

While Gallinari may have been approached, Kardashian and Humphries say they met after Kim spotted Kris at a Nets game and had a mutual friend introduce each other. Humphries Nets teammate Jordan Farmar told US Weekly he introduced the two: “I introduced them in New York and they have come a long way since. 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.”

For as famous as Kardashian is, she sure has a thing for mediocre athletes.
