Reality star Khloé Kardashian does love her basketball players.
After her divorce from Lamar Odom, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians personality had an on-and-off relationship with Houston Rockets superstar James Harden, a rumored fling with New York Knicks guard Brandon Jennings, and now appears to be getting serious with Cleveland Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson.
Rumors about the romance first surfaced in July this year. Kardashian and Thompson were seen hanging out at the Bootsy Bellows in California two months ago. They were spotted again during the Labor Day weekend while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas.

Kris Jenner also approves of the relationship. "They are really cute. You know, she's having a good time. He seems like a really nice guy," she told the entertainment news site.
However, it's not a smooth ride for Kardashian and Thompson since his former girlfriend, Jordy C, is about to have his baby.At least, the Cleveland Cavaliers forward is upfront about it.
"Tristan told Khloé about the baby," Us Weekly reported. "He's happy about it."
For her part, the 32-year-old understands and accepts the past of the 25-year-old basketball player, who just found himself becoming filthy rich after signing a five-year extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers for over $80 million.
"Khloé's having fun with him right now and just doesn't want any drama," the insider added.
The relationship between the two lovebirds is indeed getting serious. According to OK! magazine, Kardashian already brought over some of her things to his place in Ohio because "she plans to keep flying back and forth during the season."
The entrepreneur was also seen watching the pre-season game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia Sixers in Quickens Loan Arena and joined the team while they watched the Cleveland Indians game.

Back when Kardashian was still dating Harden, there were rumors that she was looking at real estate in Houston where she could stay to watch the home games of her then boyfriend.
According to reports, Kardashian and Thompson are exclusive right now.
"There is a lot of chemistry between the two of them and they are happy together," the alleged insider said. "She's even gotten close with a few of his friends and they all hang out sometimes. Khloé hasn't had this much fun with someone in a while."
It's been a rough year for Kardashian after re-filing her divorce papers with Lamar Odom in May this year, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason. She first filed documents in December 2013 following reports of cheating and substance abuse from the former Los Angeles Lakers champion.
Prior to filing for divorce, there were rumors about the two rekindling their romance after the reality star cared for the 6-foot-11-inch retired basketball player while he was in a coma. Lamar Odom was found unconscious inside a brothel in Nevada in October last year. While the details of what happened were not released, it was widely reported that he overdosed on drugs.
All throughout that time, Kardashian was still dating Harden, who also expressed his support for his girlfriend's decision to be by her ex-husband's side. The two later split earlier this year, with the reality star hinting that the Rockets guard was playing around with other girls when they are not together.
