Korver handles his celebrity with grace and patience. He signs autographs he has never understood why players wouldn't do this and tries to be appreciative of the attention, even though he finds it disconcerting.
"I feel sorry for him," says Luchetti. "The attention is constant. But he's handled it extremely well. He's always nice and polite. He's just a good person. The players have different attitudes about being in the NBA. For some, they love their job, but it is still a job. Their family and their core values are more important. That's how he is."
The answer to your question, ladies, is, no, he does not have a girlfriend. "I just broke up with" he begins to say, but his voice trails off, and it's clear he doesn't want to go there. Like Steve Young and others in his position, Korver finds it ironic that all that fame and female adulation make it difficult to find a wife.
"They certainly have to be understanding of the situation," he says.The attention "can be so over the top," Laine says. "Do they like him for who he is or because he's a basketball player? Are they jersey chasers? You wonder. You question sincerity. People get lost in that world. You want to be glad for who you are when it's done and you're 60."
