Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian’s husband, ‘an absolute jerk’

Kris Humphries came on a visit and tried to commit. He really wanted to come here. But no one on the team liked Kris Humphries. He was arrogant. He told everyone he was going to come in and be the leading scorer as a freshman and that we’d all have to take a backseat to him. We were trying to be respectful and not say anything. But he was an absolute jerk. It was tough, because Roy was really excited about him. Kris Humphries was a big deal. He was a one-and-done or a two-and-done kind of player. Roy wanted him to commit on his visit. But we told him, “Coach, you can’t bring this guy in. You can’t do it.” You’d figure Roy would say something like, “Let’s work on him,” or “Let’s give him another chance.” Instead he told Humphries, “Sorry, but you can’t come.” 


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: For once, Kris Humphries is making headlines that have nothing to do with being married to Kim Kardashian.

Once upon a time, Humphries was just a basketball player, and not tabloid fodder for US Weekly, National Enquirer and other celebrity publications.

Problem is, his recent headlines aren’t good.

According to a soon-to-be-released-book on Kansas basketball, Humphries was an ‘absolute jerk’ on a recruiting visit. In fact, legendary coach Roy Williams told the four-man he wasn’t welcome to join the Jayhawks after high school.

Humphries spent a year at the University of Minnesota before having a mostly mediocre career until last year's uptick in play and notoriety.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries make $18 million off wedding

The buxom reality-TV diva and her basketball-playing hubby, Kris Humphries, raked in a lot more than a few toasters when they tied the knot last night -- scoring about $17.9 million by turning the ceremony into a media extravaganza.


HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Some were concerned that Kris Humphries' basketball career would suffer by marrying Kim Kardashian.

And some, like our own Paul Eide, were concerned that the Kim-Kris pairing would suffer the fate of other marriages involving a celebrity and NBA player.

Well, does it even matter?

Reports indicate Kardashian and Humphries are poised to earn a cool $18 million by selling the rights to their special - and lucrative - day. 

Heck, Hump' can retire today from his gig as a mostly mediocre power forward.

It doesn't matter if the players and owners ever agree to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. And it doesn't matter if he ever signs another NBA contract.

He's good. Very good.

Clearly, being Mr. Kim Kardashian is a far better racket than being Kris Humphries.

Marriage And NBA Players: Just Don’t Do It

With the endlessly publicized marriage of reality skanklet Kim Kardashian to NBA Kris “Who’s He?” Humphries taking place this weekend, it reminded me of several other ill-fated NBA player marriages.

NBA lets Nets attend Kris and Kim’s wedding

A team official says the Nets have been granted permission to attend the reality star's marriage to forward Kris Humphries on Saturday in California.General manager and other members of the Nets' basketball operations department are expected to attend the ceremony of their free agent forward, the official told The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the guest list was to remain private. With players and their teams not supposed to be in contact during the lockout, they must check with the league about events where they would be together.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: The New Jersey Nets can attend The Wedding.

Much to the relief of the Nets organization, they have permission from league head office to go to forward Kris Humphries and celebrity Kim Kardashian's wedding.

They, of course, had to ask permission because the lockout bans teams from talking to players. Special allowances for special circumstances can be made. And apparently The Wedding of the summer is special enough.

Good for the Nets. Good for Kris. Good for Kim.

While we're at it, how about the powers that be get to talking about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement? And soon.

I'm pretty sure an NBA season is special to fans.

Rumor: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries to get reality show?

Kim and Kris have been filming different parts of their lives, including wedding prep, but their show hinges on Kris contract negotiations,” an insider close to the production tells us. “Currently he’s a free agent, but it all depends on what teams he ends up with and their rules for their players and outside commitments.”

Our source adds, “If he is given time and the okay, he and Kim will do their own show. But if his other obligations force him to not film as much, then they will just put all the stuff they’ve shot toward Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Apparently, one reality television show starring a Kardashian sister and an NBA forward is not enough.

Like Khloe and Lamar Odom, Kim and soon-to-be husband Kris Humphries will soon get their own platform to inform, enlighten, and educate the masses on their day-to-day existence.

We are indeed lucky.

The good and bad of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries getting engaged

Kim Kardashian is engaged to Kris Humphries after six months of dating and quite a bit of PDA. Exciting as the news is, the real shocker is that the reality star kept her megawatt engagement ring hidden for a week.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: There’s good and bad to NBA post Kris Humphries getting engaged to reality vixen Kim Kardashian, I suppose.

The good:  Kardashian will continue attending games, so ABC, ESPN, and TNT will continue panning to the beauty during games. For instance, fans got numerous shots of Eva Longoria during Spurs games before text-gate broke her and Tony Parker up.

The bad: we get more of this. Yes, Kardashian may include Humphries in her reality television show like her sister included Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom.

Is Kris Humphries succeeding because of ‘Kim Kardashian Effect’?

He also just happens to be dating reality TV star Kim Kardashian. Calling it the “Kim Kardashian Effect”, many can’t help but notice the correlation between Humphries’ success this season and his recent romance. “You know, it’s interesting. Just being around her, seeing how hard she works, and everyone in her family and what they do, it’s motivating for me,” Humphries said. “I want to be the best that I can be. I wouldn’t say it’s the only reason I’ve had a great year, but it definitely factors into that.”

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Perhaps it’s her brilliant reality television show. Perhaps it’s her sensational musical talent. Perhaps it’s something else like her work ethic –yeah, that’s it, really.

Jokes aside, New Jersey Nets big Kris Humphries believes Kim Kardashian’s dedication to her craft, whatever that is, has had a positive influence on his basketball career.

After a so-so run with the Utah Jazz, Toronto Raptors, and Dallas Mavericks, Humphries found his way with the Nets once he hooked up with the curvy celebrity.

Interestingly enough, many athletes struggle once their personal life becomes fodder for TMZ. Not Humphries, though. The opposite has occurred.
The 'Kim Kardashian Effect' has Humphries playing well, happy, and a possible candidate for Most Improved Player.
