You've got to be kidding me. That's not reality in any way, shape, or form.

Sacramento Kings guard Doug Christie and his wife Jackie are currently in negotiations to star in their own reality television series, according to the Toronto Star.

Christie has been married for 11 years. He uses a hand signal while on the floor to acknowledge his wife, who is often in attendance to see it. What's more, she has been known to speak to Christie via cell phone during road trips.

And before the Raptors traded Christie west in 2000, The Star says team employees tell stories of Jackie forbidding her husband from being interviewed by female sportscasters.

Remember Jackie's pocketbook assault on the Lakers' Rick Fox a couple pre-seasons back?

So move over Ozzie and Sharon —or Nick and Jessica?

"It'll be about me and Doug and our relationship," she said last night, sipping a beer in her third-row seat at the Air Canada Centre. "There's been a lot of misconceptions about us over the years. A lot of things have been misconstrued. ... Now the truth will come out."

The name of the show and the network on which it could air are not known. But it seems fair to suggest the show might attempt to expose the life of an NBA player who is often chided for his commitment to his wife.

"I don't have Doug on any leash, under no thumb, no nothing," Jackie said. "But we want to send a message that it's cool to be committed. We respect each other. He respects me."

The newspaper said the prospect of a show about the Christie's drew smiles in lockerooms around the NBA.

"I don't have much to say about (the Christies)," Raptors' guard Jalen Rose said. "My whole situation is a reality TV show. ... There's no shame in my game. Follow me around. Put a microphone on me. You might not like some of the things I say about a lot of people, but ... at least I'm honest."

Christie's teammate, Greg Ostertag, reportedly suggested the idea of a show depicting the life of a basketball-playing bachelor.

"Doug's a family man. If you're going to do a show about him, you've got to go to the other end of the spectrum, where guys are single, living on their own, got their boys living with them," Ostertag said.

"You've got your absolute crazy guys. You'd see a lot of partying, a lot of video-game playing."

Where's Wilt Chamberlain when we need him?

I know, you've totally butchered this poll. Maybe if you can hack into their computer and look at their computer habits, you can make it up to them.

ROFL If they really wanted to do that right they should've changed "your" to "you're".

I know where this is headed. Within two hours, the poll question will look like something kcnut typed while he was in a hurry.
