Kim Kardashian: New Year, New Men—10 Athletes Kim May Have on Her Radar in 2011

0 of 10

    Kim Kardashian is one of the most stunning women on the face of this earth. At the snap of her fingers, she could have any man in the world. Let's face it—she needs new love. Kris Humphries just won't suffice for her.

    In the past, Kim has been with Reggie Bush, Ray J, etc., etc. While she's been linked to Kanye West among others, she's never come out publicly and said she was with them. Her relationship with Ray J made her famous, and then she became Reggie's girl. 

    Kim has a plethora of options out there. She's sworn off athletes before, but her heart belongs to jocks entirely. Don't let her fool you!

    Here are 10 men that Kim may want to consider this year.

Chris Bosh

1 of 10

    Chris Bosh is one of the most dominant inside players in the game. Maybe, just maybe, he can get inside on Kim K.

    He's not as prolific as teammates Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, but Bosh is a force. Bosh is one of the most consistent players in the game, and Kim would look good wrapped around his arm.

    Bosh has to be better than her current beau Kris Humphries.

    His switch from Toronto to Miami, now a member of "The Big Three," has made Bosh mainstream. Ms. Kardashian can definitely work with that.

Sidney Crosby

    "Sid the Kid" needs a "real woman" to toughen him up. Maybe I'm being biased as a Philly fan, but the kid is soft.

    Not shaking hands with the Washington Capitals after the Winter Classic was cold as ice. Kim's been left out in the cold before (by Ray J); maybe this will work. Then again, Ray J helped her fame and popularity out a whole lot with that tape.

    Crosby is the best hockey player in the world, and Kim makes a great WAG. What a pair this would be! If Crosby were to kindle a relationship with K-Dash, I'd have a newfound respect for him.

    The Kardashians oftentimes lead to rings, right? Well, Sid has done a pretty good job of that alone at just 23.

Tony Romo

    Tony Romo has had them all—at least it seems that way. From Carrie Underwood to Jessica Simpson, they've all been Tony's "stars."

    However, Romo hasn't had "The Tush" and likely won't, as he's now engaged to Candice Crawford. They would make a pretty desirable couple though.

    She already went with his top target Miles Austin for a while, so why not become Romo's next "top target?"

    Most of Romo's ladies haven't been "lady luck," as the 'Boys have struggled. The beautiful Kim K could change that though. That's the Power of the Kardashians (see Reggie Bush/Lamar Odom).

Derek Jeter

4 of 10

    Derek Jeter is one of the most envied athletes on the planet. He's got it all. Rings. Gorgeous women. Fame. Money. Even the adoration of millions of New Yorkers.

    What he hasn't had is Kim Kardashian.

    These two would make a pretty interesting couple. Plus, both are used to people that have "been around the block." Neither of them can seem to escape the spotlight.

    Jeter won't need help with rings. He has far more than all the Dash women have helped their men to.

    He's currently tied down with Minka Kelly for now. Some tiedown, eh?

Chad Ochocinco

    Chad Ochocinco is a real character to say the least. From changing his name from Johnson to Ochocinco, having his own iPhone app and even starring in a reality show, he's done it all.

    Ochocinco is now about to tie the knot with beautiful Spanish reality TV star Evelyn Lozada. Yeah, Lozada is special and must be one of a kind to put up with Chad. But what about Kim K and Ochocinco? They're both reality TV stars and are wildly popular.

    Ochocinco always seems to have "the best" of everything. He's never had Kim, though. How could he ever live with that?

Georges St. Pierre

6 of 10

    Georges St. Pierre is the best pound-for-pound fighter in MMA. In his private life, I'm certain that he has had many women; this much is obvious. Now, this Quebec native needs to step his game up and meet up with Kim Kardashian.

    They had to have crossed paths before at some point. These two would hit it off well, as GSP could protect Kim with his tremendous fighting skills. Kim's been with athletes but never a fighter of any sort. After all, she's a lover, not a fighter. But why not mix things up and become rebellious, Kim?

    Kim would know just how to introduce GSP to American life. The Canadian champion is definitely worth a flier from Ms. Kardashian.

    I'd bet St. Pierre would love to "lay and pray" with Kim K.

Matt Leinart

7 of 10

    Matt Leinart is a former teammate of Kim's former lover, Reggie Bush. Before Leinart can even think about hooking up with Kim, he will need a job of some sort.

    Kim usually likes a man with drive—at least we think so. So Leinart may be out of the running. He's a little too childish for Kim K; she deserves a "real man."

    Also, Leinart's known as a womanizer and big party boy. This won't fly with Kim.

Tiger Woods

    Wow! What a couple this would be. Tiger Woods, currently single, for as far as we can tell, and Kim Kardashian, one of the most beautiful women in the world.

    Kim would certainly make Tiger forget all of his women of old, and she could go with him for a full 18. Tiger already was a fool to cheat on Elin Nordegren and was exposed for it. Imagine how desperate he'd have to be to ever cheat on this Kardashian sister.

    Woods' life has taken a turn for the worse over the past two years. He needs someone new to spice it up a bit. Kim could be the perfect remedy for Tiger.

Amar'e Stoudemire

9 of 10

    Amar'e Stoudemire has had himself quite a season in New York. Since being moved out of Phoenix, Amar'e has the Knicks right in the thick of things, and it's January.

    The Kardashians bring championships after all, right? If Amar'e were to be with Kim, it would make major headlines in New York and bolster the Knicks' chances.

    Also, another Knick proves to be an eligible bachelor. Italy's own Danilo Gallinari is one of New York's top bachelors, and his career could skyrocket with a woman like Kim by his side. After all, even Gallinari is an upgrade from the Nets' Kris Humphries.

    Once Kim realizes that Humphries gets only 25 minutes per game for the lowly Nets, maybe she will reconsider her options.

LeBron James

    Who better for Kim to date than the most popular/hated/controversial athlete in the world? LeBron James is in fact all of these things and much more. Wouldn't Kim love to find out?

    Her sisters have already taken over Miami, but isn't that LeBron's spot? Well, Kim would love it in Miami—especially if she were strutting around town with LeBron beside her.

    LeBron is a superstar and needs a superstar-caliber woman by his side. Kim and Gabrielle Union (Dwyane Wade) would make great friends and could shop together in South Beach.
