The Internet is doing backflips over the possibility former Oklahoma basketball star Blake Griffin is dating internationally known supermodel Kate Upton.
And a collective sigh could be heard from men everywhere.
The story goes like this: Griffin and Upton found themselves together inside a New York restaurant. They were with other friends as well, but, according to numerous outlets, a "source" saw the pair "cuddling and holding hands."
Now the last we heard, the 21-year-old Upton was dating Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Not much is known about their relationship either, as neither party has commented on their status or the Griffin rumors.
In fact, no one seems to be talking about the night in the Big Apple. But if there was some truth to the rumors, the link would make sense. The blonde bombshell has a history with athletes, having been connected to Tigers hurler Justin Verlander and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez since her prompt rise to fame.
And Griffin has developed quite the off-the-court image as well. The Sooner-turned-Clipper has flourished since moving to Los Angeles, from interning at a popular comedy website during the NBA lockout to dunking over a car to win the league's 2011 dunk contest.
Which, by the way, led to a lucrative contract with Kia.
Wonder what car Upton drives.
