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.

what a day when you have these 4 wankers... Kris and his nearly ex missus Kim, her new babymaker Kanye, and finally Jay-Z... and Jayz is the example of how to best behave.

If K.Hump keeps f-ing with Kim trying to scam her out of some money, THEN he'll find himself out of a job. Maybe this deal was done behind the curtain where Jay-Z said ok you can keep your job, but you gotta leave Kim alone. ANYTHING to get rid of this stinking piece of crap stuck to my shoe called "K.Hump".

At the end of the day, it's all about the business . Perhaps this is part of a settlement in the making? He'll do fine or sit on the bench.

Kris Humphries Must be a better Basketball Player than Lamar Kardashian because he did not get that big of a contract.

Was happy about the Nets moving to Brooklyn. Not so much about the Humphries signing though. Hopefully he will play better ball here.

Good for him, a very good contract, though not as long term as he wanted. For all the posters who think he stinks, get a clue, he is a very good player - averaged 13 pts 11 rebs in 25 mins per game. Kanye West is a little tool and an overrated little beatch. Jay-Z is a minority owner of the Brooklyn Nets and has no power what so ever in personnel choices. His "ownership" is a PR stunt, nothing more. West needs a lot of bodyguards, because he is nothing and Humphries would make him cry like the girl he is.
