Robin Lopez denies dating Khloe Kardashian “rumors” in hysterical way

6 Comments

After the experiences of Lamar Odom and Kris Humphries, you could totally understand why another NBA player would want to date one of the Kardashians. Those both ended so well for everyone.

Yet on Friday “news” came out Khloe Kardashian — for the uninitiated, she was the one with Lamar Odom who most recently was dating rapper French Montana — is single again and had her eyes on Portland center Robin Lopez. Because what woman doesn’t find that Sideshow Bob hair hot?

Lopez shot that down in a hysterical way on the Blazers’ official site (h/t Eye on Basketball):

“You know, I’m not exactly certain of the veracity of those rumors,” said Lopez. “But what I can comment on, I suppose, is the fabrication of that power couple by the press. Obviously they were looking for two people with a lot of influence on popular culture, on the youth, and they were looking for two movers and shakers. Frankly, I’m not surprised they came up with my name.”

And now that he’s sideline for at least the next six weeks, Lopez, a native of North Hollywood, said he’s willing to try out the glamorous, fast-paced lifestyle that surely goes hand in hand with dating a Kardashian.

“I’ve got a lot more free time for magazine shoots, guest hosting duties on TV shows and stuff,” said Lopez. “They can contact my agent if they want to. I’m also the associate video guy. That’s one of my new duties. Got a wealth of opportunities even though I’ve only got one hand right now.”

Now that’s the right attitude.

This is just not going to work out. Which may be best for Robin. I’m not sure the city of Portland would be the most welcoming place ever for the Kardashians. Slightly different sensibilities up there.
