10:04 PM PT --
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.

WOW, TMZ just posted something positive about Kris. Must be a slow kiss ass day for Kim. He worked very hard to get where he is in Basketball, he deserved. West couldn't get anyone fired, Jay-Z know better than that.

Kanye is SUCH a crybaby. I don't see what Kim sees in him. The way he whines about people makes him look like such a pansy.

Jay-Z barely owns a piece of the Nets. Their real owner is some Russian billionaire Mickael Prokhorov or something. Jay-Z doesn't call the shots.

I hope he takes the $24 million, and moves on. So sick of Kris/Kim stories. The marriage didn't work out--everyone move on now.

Yup    

Typical kanye west. What a complete & total p*ssy; always talks tough, but when it comes down to it, he runs & hides behind his bodyguards. Someone needs to bitchslap that boy hard, to shake him out of his delusional world...
