At this point Bar Refaeli should just call France home. The SI swimsuit model went from amazing bikini shots on boats at Cannes to yesterday’s trip to the French Open in Paris. Oh, and that isn’t the only news out of the Bar camp. How about a photo of her and friend Israeli NBAer Omri Casspi (Sacramento Kings) getting cozy for a Yfrog upload last night while “celebrating a Maccabbi (Israeli basketball legue) victory.” Um, could this be the start of a possible Bar Refaeli NBA WAG situation?
You be the judge. Our minds are already made up. A supermodel doesn’t upload a shot of herself and an uber cute NBAer without knowing the photo will go viral and the British tabloids will go crazy.
We’re pretty sure that this is the biggest Twitter moment in the young career of Mr. Casspi. Dude has 7,700 Twitter followers and woke up this morning to a front-pager on the Daily Mail’s website.
Who is this Casspi character? He is the first Israeli born player in NBA history and averaged 8.6 PPG this year so he’s not a complete scrub. You make the call. Is he the rebound road beef? Something tells us you’ll hear this guy’s name again within the next 3-4 weeks. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
