Found December 21, 2011 on NBC San Diego:
Sports fans are a notoriously fickle bunch, and apparently all it takes to make them forget about how much they hate the Miami Heat's LeBron James is a high-profile divorce involving Kim Kardashian.  Kardashian's ex-husband Kris Humphries is now the most hated player in the NBA, according to Forbes Magazine. A survey conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research showed that 50 percent of respondents dislike the New Jersey Nets forward, compared to 48 percent who dislike James.   James was number 1 on last year's list, according to Forbes, so now we have the answer to an age-old question: Which is worse, breaking the hearts of Rust Belt basketball fans or marrying a celebrity and getting divorced within months?   His questionable marriage and quickie divorce from Kardashian notwithstanding, it is still a bit puzzling why so many survey respondents reacted unfavorably towards Humphries. A career 46 percent shooter and mostly role player, he's not exactly the type of ...

Video: LeBron James airballs a free throw/is still better at basketball than you

It's a preseason game, signifying absolutely nothing, and LeBron James is unquestionably the best basketball player in the world. Still, on Wednesday night, he shot a wide open 15-foot set shot about 14 feet. "Short!" (HT: Jose3030.) (Also, Michael did this once.)

After NBA Finals failures, Miami Heat’s LeBron James taking game to post

Think back to the Finals failures that stand out most.

The Post Handoff: Wade and James

What if we could tell you could have Dwyane Wade, in the post, less than 15 feet away from the basket and possibly with a mismatch, with LeBron James accelerating towards the rim directly past him? Would that be something you'd be interested in?

16 and Clean - Kendall Jenner is the Sexiest Member of the Karshian Klan

Hot is not the right word for Kendall Jenner, the right word is scorching! The daughter of Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner and his socialite wife Kris Jenner.  She has been in the spotlight for years, and we have been able to watch her grow up into a stunning model on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."  I still can't all of this started because Kim Kardashian...

MSG fans boo Kardashian ex Humphries

Welcome back, Kris! Every time Nets forward Kris Humphries touched the ball during the 5:40 he played during the second quarter of Wednesday night's 88-82 loss to the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, he was serenaded with a tidal wave of deafening boos -- a reaction normally reserved only for an opposing superstar. Instead, they were directed at Humphries, who became a gossip...

2011-12 Los Angeles Lakers Preview

There was a lot of lip service about competitive balance during the NBA lockout this offseason. LeBron James fleeing Cleveland for the sun and sand of South Beach and Carmelo Anthony wrangling his way to New York upset more than a few "small-market" owners around the league last season, so much so that they almost shut down the sport for the year.

Bush shares thoughts on failed marriage of Kardashian lady

Reggie Bush isn't really interested in giving color commentary on the failed marriage of ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian, but he did at least humor a reporter who asked about it on Tuesday.

Dolphins RB Reggie Bush says of Kim Kardashian’s short marriage: “Stranger things have happened”

I tried to avoid it. In the end, I had to ask. Dolphins RB Reggie Bush was on a conference call with us Patriots reporters, and he’d just about wrapped up. But I couldn’t let him go without asking about the epically short marriage between his ex-flame Kim Kardashian and that boring, lame basketball player whose name I forget. His response? “Ha, I have no comment about that...

Quirks galore in compressed schedule (AP)

Carmelo Anthony's return to Denver is delayed for another year. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade won't be visiting Sacramento anytime soon. Fans in Chicago will only be seeing Kobe Bryant on television this season. The NBA sought competitive balance. What it got was schedule imbalance.
