Here Are This Week's Winners And Losers In Sports

kim kardashian

The sad, sad divorce of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries hijacked the headlines this week.

But we also had a new Tim Tebow meme, an unlikely NBA lockout villain, and yet another reason to love Kevin Durant.

So while Kim and Kris obviously lose the week, others are riding high as the new month begins.

WINNER: Patrick Witt

Witt is the quarterback of Yale. He is also a Rhodes Scholar candidate.

On Nov. 19, he'll have to choose between playing against Harvard and going to his final Rhodes interview.

We have a feeling he'll be able to do both.

WINNER: Tony LaRussa

The long-time Cardinals manager called it quits after winning the World Series.

He's been a controversial figure throughout his career.

But riding into the sunset is a hell of a way to go out.

WINNER: Kevin Durant

Durant solidified his position as the NBA's coolested superstar by playing flag football with some frat boys on a whim this week.

Durant drove all the way to Stillwater, Oklahoma just to have some fun with the common man.

WINNER: Occupy Tebow

Greater Than Tebow was the talk of the Internet this week.

It started when people started commenting things like 'WNBA > Tebow' and 'Google Buzz > Tebow' on an ESPN.com article.

By Wednesday, it was a full-fledged rebellion with 'X > Tebow' comments coming in at a dozen a minute.

WINNER: Barry Deley

LOSER: Michael Jordan

Michael Jordan is the guy who's leading the group of owners who refuse to give the players more than 50% of revenue.

Jordan owns the Charlotte Bobcats, a team that has the most to lose if players and owners cut a deal higher than 50%.

LOSER: Tim Tebow

Poor Tim Tebow.

He went from hero of Denver, to the laughing stock of the sports world in one week.

At least the Occupy Tebow comment thread was hilarious.

LOSER: Bob Arun

LOSER: Julian Edelman

Julian Edelman is the latest Patriots player to publicly embarrass himself.

Edelman was arrested at a Halloween costume for groping a woman.

LOSER: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were married for 72-days, got divorced this week, and managed to annoyingly take over headlines everywhere.

Also, Humphries lost a ton of money in a scam.
