Kim Kardashian Divorce: 5 Athletes She Can Destroy Next
Well, let the games begin. Kim Kardashian's divorce to Kris Humphries is just about final and the reality TV and sex tape star is single again. That is, if you believe her relationship with Humphries was actually real, if not, she's been single for awhile now.
Kardashian has no doubt had a negative impact on Humphries, saddling the poor guy with a 72-day marriage ending in divorce that he will carry with him for a lifetime. He should have known what he was doing, but he did it nonetheless.
So blame can be placed on the New Jersey Nets' forward as well.
Humphries isn't the first and won't be the last athlete Kardashian hooks her claws into for he own personal gain.
Here are five other athletes Kardashian could destroy.

Derek Jeter made headlines during the 2011 MLB season not for his play on the field, but for his break-up with actress Minka Kelly.
It was a rough year for Minka. First she loses her multi-million dollar, Yankee great boyfriend and then her show, Charlie's Angels made the Hindenburg disaster look like a fender bender.
What could make her year worse would be a Jeter-Kardashian union.
It's about as likely as Alex Rodriguez staying celibate, but the two would be a power couple never seen before.
If you think Jeter's average was low during his time with Kelly, the distraction of dating Kardashian would ultimately send Jeter to the bench.
The Yankee Captain is way smarter than to join the circus that is Kim Kardashian at his point in his career, and that gigantic, 31,000 square foot mansion he built in Florida would have to be expanded to fit Kardashian's ego.
Besides, Jeter is talented and Kardashian seems to stay away from those types of athletes.
Rob Gronkowski is a part of one of the best offenses in the NFL as the tight end of the New England Patriots.
He is third in the league in receiving yards among tight ends, and is on pace for 1,000 yards receiving, a magical number not easily reached by players at his position.
Gronkowski has the potential to be one of the best tight ends in the NFL, and the skies the limit for one of Tom Brady's favorite targets.
That being said, Gronkowski may have shown how low his standards are after photos surfaced of he and porn star, Bibi Jones together during the Pats bye week a few weeks ago.
Seeing as how he'd stoop to the level of being with a porn star, Kardashian isn't very far behind standard wise, so it isn't outside the realm of possibility that these two would date.
Gronkowski has a bright future but could easily throw that away if he accepts another offer from the Kardashian's E! producers.

Mark Sanchez is having enough troubles as it is being the quarterback of the New York Jets.
The expectations and pressures of a Super Bowl are there every season, whether it's a result of media hype or a coach's hype.
He certainly doesn't need anymore distractions to take his mind off the field, but Sanchez has shown poor judgement with women in the past.
His alleged romp with a 17-year-old high school student last year was well chronicled by the media. So I wouldn't put it past him to make a mistake like dating Kardashian.
A relationship with Kardashian would be like Sanchez having to deal with a 12th defender on the field, a scary thought considering he's having troubles beating 11 defenders.
Kardashian would single-handedly take Sanchez and the Jets from a perennial playoff contender to a rebuilding mess of a franchise.
But I'm sure Rex Ryan could spin it, saying the Jets players have the hottest girlfriends in the league and nobody can top that.

Blake Griffin was the 2010-11 NBA Rookie of the Year after bursting onto the scene, dunking over anyone he had the chance to. He made another splash during the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, dunking over a car.
Griffin is certainly the type of player who could dominate this league one day, that is unless he gets persuaded to date the man-killer, Kardashian.
She's conquered New York and even Miami. I can see it now:
"Kim and Blake Take Los Angeles."
Griffin would be an attractive "husband" for Kardashian because of the Hollywood appeal he has playing in Los Angeles for the Clippers.
Hopefully with the guidance of his parents, Griffin would turn down Kardashian and avoid the worst mistake of his young career.
Not to mention, it would only be a matter of time before Kim would try and convince Griffin to play for that other Los Angeles basketball team because it would get him and her more press coverage.
If this happens, God help you, Clippers' fans.

Reggie Bush finally recorded his first 100-yard game of the season on the ground for the Miami Dolphins. His season-best game happened against the New York Giants last week.
Some have attributed that to Bush possibly re-uniting with ex-girlfriend Kardashian, I would attribute it to the Giants' 28th-ranked defense.
Whatever your reasoning, history doesn't lie. Kardashian has been a disaster with men in the past, dragging men through her life of manipulation and paparazzi to an ultimate failure of an ending.
At least with Bush, he's been such a disappointment in his career so far, there isn't much further he can fall.
He might be the best man for the job of Kardashian's next fake husband because there isn't much worse she can make his life.
