Apparently, being able to catch lob passes from Chris Paul and leap out of the stratosphere gets you the Sports Illustrated cover model as E! is reporting the Los Angeles Clippers power forward is possibly dating the sultry Upton.

Per E!:

Looks like the sparks are starting to fly between Kate Upton and NBA hunk Blake Griffin!

A source tells E! News the Sports Illustrated swimsuit beauty and Clippers forward got “very cozy” Wednesday night at NYC hot spot Beauty & Essex.

A source says the pair “were cuddling and holding hands, although they were not seen making out. They seemed pretty cute together.”

Upton, who is no stranger to sporting events, especially Clipper games moved on from former beau, Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander as she apparently doesn’t date athletes who give up three home runs to Panda Bear’s in the World Series.

How’s that for being ‘too nice’, Chauncey Billups?

Also, I have absolutely zero idea why I’m reporting such nonsense, so here’s a video of Miss Upton riding a horse. Topless. With fancy neat-o stars in strategic places.
