Kris just posted a tweet that totally mocks Kanye West ... saying, "I'm up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ 'lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team' lol!"

The tweet is an obvious reference to the diss-track Kanye released ... in which he trashed Kris and bragged that he could have his BFF Jay-Z fire Kris whenever he wanted.

Kris Humphries
doesn't need Kim Kardashian to make a living ... 'cause dude just signed a $24 MILLION contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

It's a 2-year deal according to ESPN ... which means Kris got one helluva raise -- his previous contract was a 1-year deal worth $8 mil.

Not bad ... considering the Nets are partially owned by Jay Z ... who's best friends with Kanye West ... who's still banging Kris' estranged wife.

Kanye also recently bragged that he could have J fire Kris whenever he wants.

Sounds like a perfectly healthy work environment.

Seriously doubt that Kanyucky has ANY influence on JZ's bball team staffing. EVER HEARD OF A CONTRACT KANYUCKY? EVER HEARD OF LAWYERS? EVER HEARD OF BREACH OF CONTRACT? Uppity effing ahole! KW thinks he is sooooooooooooooooo powerful that his words alone can make or break a basketball franchise!

coochcooch?I like Kim. She's smart in business, obviously but when it comes 2 men, she's out in left field.Both Kris and Kanye r phking idiots. The only thing bigger then them is their ego ! Half the stuff that I've been reading about Kim and her family is bull**** and that's just the stuff that U PEOPLE r writing about. Reading your comments is like picking up a "STAR " magazine or other tabloids. Oh, Kim is a slut.Oh,Kim is an adultress, Kim is phoney, Kim's mother is a pimp, Kim's got a smelly cooch?! That.s a new 1...how do u know,Dave??I mean, really people.How do u know all this stuff if u don't watch the show or read trash about them ?Must be easy 2 target Kim. I mean, if Kim or her family aren't ashamed of their lives and past mistakes and they aren't hiding anything,( which would be difficult 2 do considering the way they lead their lives on camera) then what the phk do I care.She didn't get married 4 money but if she did, hey, all the more power 2 her.She can't be that stupid.!! If u people think they're stupid then you're fooling yourself....Jealousy isn't good either.

Kim has striking, dark, good looks, it's true. But how she ever got on Forbes list of richest women is beyond me! All she does is pose for pictures. Must be nice!

Kanye seems to think he is way more important than he really is. No one cares what he thinks. He is a low life thug who deserves the washed up K crowd. They are both cuts of the same cloth. Why make 2 other people miserable. Match made in heaven. Like we have all said for month and month, RUN KRIS HUMPHRIES RUN
