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.

Maybe you guys are looking at it all wrong. If the Nets give him a big payday, he won't need Kim's money. So the buddies put their heads together, and decide that instead of firing him, they will hire him. They offer him a good deal and now, he can just get out of Kim's world.

Good for you Kris. Learn from your mistakes. Please use protection from here on out. You keep picking sleezy women. You deserve to win the lawsuit, you were set up by her from the get go. When you saw Kim, you saw Kayne. Those two deserve each other. Kim could have fed thousands of children here in the USA w/ what she spent on "her wedding", all for ratings.

Maybe Lurch and Oompa Loompa will drop their extortion case against Kim. I know Oompa Loompa will miss the media attention. I know she recently accused Kim of stalking her(lmao). I think the Nets were stupid enough to bring back Lurch who is one of the most hated players in the NBA. The fans can't stand him. He better stop going after Kim's money before season starts. Kim was at least working non stop all year while Lurch was holding court with Oompa Loompa. All he was doing was clubbing it and wants convince a judge that he was heart broken(oh yeah right).
