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.

Kanye makes himself looks insecure by even mentioning him, let alone acting as if he has power over Kris Humphrie's career.

K- West is NOT as smart as he is trying to be. Humphrey has a CONTRACT which means if he is fired he still gets the $. Jay Z is a business man (not as much as a rapper) and this investment means that he would be out the cash. West is all talk. He is trash like Kim. I give that relationship less then a year. Humphs will still be playing on this team after He is long gone in Kim's canyon. Honestly KK and K west deserve each other and deserve to be tossed into a land fill together.

Good for him. Karma is a bitch or in his case a blessing. He deserves good things after such a public humiliation by a worthless, publicity hog.
