We try not to get too deep into the love lives of Nets players...although everyone else does. After all, this is a basketball site, (and with all the copy written about Kris and Kim, we'd have little bandwidth left over). But every once in a while, we have to offer an update or two.
Let's start with Sasha Vujacic and his fiancee', Maria Sharapova. She spoke to the Miami Herald this weekend about how much of a "wonderful addition" her engagement to Vujacic has been to her life. "The only thing that really changes, you just know that when you come home, or when you’re done with your travels, you have somebody to come home to. It’s always really comforting and nice." Her tennis game has also improved.
Meanwhile, at center stage, gossip columnists were all agog this weekend over reports that Kris Humphries had either popped the question or was planning to. One columnist noted how Kim Kardashian's brother-in-law, Lamar Odom, teases her about the Nets' ineptitude. Khloe Kardashian, aka Mrs. Odom reports, "Lamar will go, 'Kim, remember this day. They're not going to win [the NBA Championship].' She thinks it's funny." Well, we don't!
