Let's face it. A pairing of teams with a current combined record of 29-74 is not what the NBA brass envisioned when they scheduled the Nets and Raptors in the London Games. So it may be up to Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian, plus a generous helping of Russian glitz, to save the day in the UK.
Already, London gossip writers are extolling the relationship from afar, with both the London Daily Mail and Sun on hand at Prince's MSG concert this weekend to snap pics of the happy couple. And then there were pictures as well of Kris sheltering Kim from the storm if not the paparazzi.
As for the Russians, expect them to arrive "in force", says one Nets official.
