Rashad McCants: Dating Khloe Kardashian killed my NBA career

Rashad McCants

Former NBA player Rashad McCants has a few regrets about the way his basketball career shook out, but none bigger than dating one of the Kardashians.

McCants became known for helping North Carolina win the national championship while teaming up with fellow prized recruits Sean May, David Noel and Raymond Felton. He then was picked No. 14 overall by the Timberwolves in 2005 and played with Minnesota through 2009.

McCants began dating Khloe Kardashian in the fall of 2009, and he says that’s where his career went off the rails. He told the Charlotte Observer that dating Khloe gave NBA teams a reason to doubt his commitment.

“Without that situation in play, I’m a $60-70 million player,” McCants said. “Easily.”

McCants was traded by Minnesota to Sacramento in early 2009. He signed with the Rockets in Sept. 2009 but didn’t end up playing for them. He had interest from a few other NBA teams over the next year, but nothing worked out. He then bounced around with two D-League stints and multiple stints abroad, none lasting for very long.

McCants isn’t the first athlete to raise eyebrows by dating a Kardashian. In fact, one NBA star recently said his play took off once he stopped dating Khloe. But to act like Khloe is the reason why McCants is out of the NBA is absurd. McCants couldn’t even get a steady gig anywhere after the Timberwolves. That seems to say more about him than anything else.

Lance Armstrong, girlfriend Anna Hansen are engaged

Lance Armstrong and his longtime girlfriend Anna Hansen are finally planning to tie the knot.

On Tuesday, Armstrong shared a photo on Instagram that showed Hansen with a ring on her left ring finger. The former cyclist captioned the photo “She said…. YES!!!!”

She said….. YES!!!!

Armstrong and Hansen have been dating for nearly 10 years and have two children together — a 7-year-old son and a 6-year-old daughter. Armstrong also has three children with his ex-wife Kristin Richard, whom he divorced in 2003.

The engagement has seemed like a long time coming. If you want to know how deep the love between Armstrong and Hansen runs, just read about the time the future Mrs. Armstrong took the blame for Lance after he hit two parked cars.

Congratulations to the happy couple.

Khloe Kardashian reportedly setting aside money for wedding with Tristan Thompson

Tristan Thompson

There continues to be stories about how eager Khloe Kardashian is to marry boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

The latest report from Radar Online says Kardashian has set aside a half-million dollars for a possible wedding and honeymoon with Thompson. Additionally, she reportedly has been showing commitment to Thompson buy buying him jewelry and luxury trips.

Kardashian has been dating the Cleveland Cavaliers big man since around August/September. Thompson has been focusing on his playoff run with the Cavs in which Cleveland has gone undefeated thus far.

A report earlier this month said Kardashian was growing concerned because Thompson was prioritizing his basketball season ahead of everything else, including her. Kardashian will have to realize that this is going to continue with Thompson through the end of the season, which will be a few more weeks.

Rob Gronkowski, girlfriend Camille Kostek back together?

Rob Gronkowski and former New England Patriots cheerleader Camille Kostek may not consider themselves an exclusive couple, but they are certainly more than just friends.

Back in February, TMZ reported that Gronkowski and Kostek merely “had a fling” and that they were in no way dating. Then over the weekend, Kostek posted some photos on social media and made some remarks that seemingly indicated they are back together — if they ever split to begin with, that is.

According to TMZ, Gronkowski and Kostek attended a wedding together in Arizona over the weekend. Sunday also happened to be the All-Pro tight end’s birthday, and Kostek wished her “bubs” a happy birthday on Snapchat. She also shared some moments from the wedding that made it seem obvious she and Gronk are a thing.

Kostek has always been more open about the relationship than Gronkowski. For example, it wasn’t that long ago that she was cracking jokes about Gronk on live television. Kostek and Gronkowski have been linked to one another for two years, so it’s hard to imagine Gronk staying in a committed relationship that long. If anything, it seems like more of a series of flings, not just one.

Robert Griffin III engaged to girlfriend Grete Sadeiko, who is pregnant

Robert Griffin III and his girlfriend, former Florida State track and field star Grete Sadeiko, shared some very big news over the weekend. And then they shared some more very big news.

For starters, the couple is engaged. Griffin proposed to Sadeiko on a beach in Florida on Saturday, and she said yes. The Instagram post below is a slideshow, so you can use the right and left arrows to look through the photos.

But that’s not all. RG3 and his fiancee are also expecting a child together, and according to Sadeiko’s photo caption they have kept the news a secret for quite some time.

“Today was the happiest day of my life and the last 8 months have been the most exciting time ever,” she wrote. “The man of my dreams and love of my life asked me to marry him today and we are one month away from welcoming our beautiful baby into this world. Words can’t describe the feelings and emotions… Unreal. I’m the happiest girl alive and so excited about everything ahead.”

Griffin has yet to finalize his divorce with ex-wife Rebecca Liddicoat, and it doesn’t sound like the split is very amicable. Things between the free agent quarterback and Sadeiko have obviously moved quickly. Congratulations to the happy couple.

Matt Harvey’s ex-girlfriends seemingly take shots at him on Instagram

Matt harvey

Matt Harvey returned from a three-game suspension this week that was handed out after he violated team rules, and it doesn’t appear the women the New York Mets pitcher has dated in the past are feeling any sympathy for him.

Adriana Lima, who briefly dated Harvey after she broke up with NFL star Julian Edelman, shared a quote on Instagram Wednesday that seemed like a subtle message for Harvey:

RESPONSIBILITY EQUALS THE LOVE ON WHAT YOU DO

A post shared by Adriana Lima (@adrianalima) on

Lima wasn’t the only one, either. Another one of Harvey’s ex-girlfriends, fashion model Ania Cywinska, posted something similar on her own Instagram account:

Touché #nothingchangesifnothingchanges

A post shared by Ania C. (@ania000) on

The timing of both posts could be a total coincidence, but we doubt it.

Harvey was reportedly out partying until 4 a.m. the morning he failed to show up to the ballpark, and there have been rumblings that his feelings toward Lima had something to do with his poor decision-making. If that is indeed the case, Lima clearly isn’t shedding a tear for him.

Report: Matt Harvey depressed about Adriana Lima dumping him

Matt harvey

The latest twist in the Matt Harvey saga may get you to feel a little sympathy for the guy.

A day after the New York Post’s Page Six reported that Harvey was out partying until 4 a.m. the day he no-showed on the Mets, the outlet reported that the pitcher has been depressed over some girl problems.

According to Page Six, Harvey grew sad after seeing photos of Adriana Lima with Julian Edelman at a Met Gala afterparty. Harvey briefly dated Lima, who had broken up with her New England Patriots boyfriend.

Seeing Lima back together with her ex apparently saddened Harvey. Lima also reportedly unfollowed the Mets pitcher on Instagram.

Some speculate that Harvey went out drinking Friday night/early Saturday morning to blow off some steam and try forgetting about the model. Page Six even went as far as to link his bad consecutive pitching outings to his depression over his love life.

Harvey was suspended three games by the Mets for missing Saturday’s game. On Tuesday he apologized to his team.
