Washington: So you think Dallas Cowboys` Miles Austin misses ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian? Not really. What he does miss is the publicity that came along with his famous partner, according to sources.

"Sitting on the floor of the Lakers game with her was better than any commercial of him that would ever run. Sure, he liked her to an extent, but he loved the publicity a lot more," Usmagazine.com quoted a source as saying.

And even though it didn`t work out, Austin, 26, is still "pumped because dating her really put him into the national spotlight and really raised his awareness in the public eye. He thought she was cool, but by no means is he heartbroken," added the source.

The short-lived romance - which recently ended because distance kept them apart - also had its plusses for Kardashian, 29.

Whenever she needed a date for an event, and he was in town, he`d go with her.

"Don`t feel bad for Kim," the source said.
