We interrupt Thursday’s slew of NBA draft-related gossip to bring you some non-draft-related NBA gossip: James Harden and Khloe Kardashian are apparently an item. We know this because … well, we don’t really know this, per se, but a lot of gossip tabloids have reported it!

For instance, Terez Owens is not only saying that’s the case, the Web site is clowning okay! Magazine for being, like, way late on the story. According to Terez Owens, the 25-year-old Rockets guard and the 30-year-old reality star were recently “spotted getting close” in Hawaii.

Star Magazine is also saying the pair hooked up in Hawaii, adding the testimony of an unidentified source, who claimed that Kardashian and her “latest crush” were seen kissing at a hotel, and that “they’re definitely going to spend more time together” in Los Angeles, Harden’s home town.

But wait, what about Rick Fox? Kardashian was reportedly seen out on a date with the actor and former NBA player (thanks again, Star). Is a roundball love triangle in the works?

Kardashian, of course, has a history with basketball stars, most notably her marriage to Lamar Odom, which apparently is not officially over (love rectangle??!!). Prior to that, she dated Rashad McCants, according to Zimbio. And no discussion of Kardashians and NBA players would be complete without mentioning sister Kim’s 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.

Okay, we now return you to your regularly scheduled NBA draft-related gossip. Hey, did you hear that, after the Nuggets selected Emmanuel Mudiay at No. 7, Ty Lawson smoked a hookah and said “I’m going to Sacramento”? Actually, that really happened.
