I think I may have figured out why Jordan Williams was in such a hurry to get to the NBA: the women.
New Jersey power forward Kris Humphries is the latest mediocre NBA big man to net himself a model. The basketball vagabond, who has averaged 5.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in seven NBA seasons, is now engaged to reality show star Kim Kardashian. He gave her a 20.5-carat diamond engagement ring last week, which means he wasn't making D-League money while coming off the bench for the Nets.
That's why there is hope for Jordan Williams. He might not be a first-round draft pick next month -- he is reportedly working hard to sneak into Round 1 -- and there are questions about whether he will make it in the NBA, but Humphries' engagement to Kardashian should be extra incentive for Williams to keep grinding.
