Kris Humphries

I'd Miss NBA Playoffs ...

To Screw Kim in Court

EXCLUSIVE

Kris Humphries
is so hell-bent on humiliating Kim Kardashian ... he's willing to screw over his team and risk the NBA championship ... just to face off with her in court.

A judge has set a May 6th trial date for K & K's long-awaited showdown. Kim has wanted a simple divorce for nearly a year-and-a-half, but Kris wants an annulment on grounds she allegedly defrauded him ... he also wants to prove her reality show is fake. 

Problem is  ... Kris' team, the Brooklyn Nets, are on track to score a spot in the 2013 Playoffs -- which run from April 20th to June 20th.

Since the trial could last 2-3 days ... Kris has several options:

1. Settle the case BEFORE it goes to trial so he can play in the playoffs.
2. Play in Playoff games but miss the trial. It can go on without him, though it puts him at a handicap.
3. Go to the trial and let his team down

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ ... the NBA'er has already made up his mind -- if the Nets make the playoffs, and the trial falls on game days ... he'll ditch the games.

Now the really stupid part.  There's no way Kris is going to win this trial.  The judge will grant the divorce and Kris will get no money, because of the prenup (and the fact the marriage lasted 72 days).   As for what Kris will risk ... his 2-year, $24 million contract.

What's that saying? Bros before ... ?

I find it funny that TMZ continues to talk about this case in terms of "winning & losing" the trial. I think it is pretty apparent from everything that's gone on, and by the fact Kris isn't exactly hard up for cash, he's interested in outing her and dragging her name through the mud. Little else matters to him. It's an act of revenge and his right to act out. Not that I agree with it necessarily, I'm just saying it's ridiculous that every article on here is so slanted in favor of Kim or her preferred outcome. As if winning the court of public opinion for her (which you haven't, TMZ) is somehow going to affect the outcome. If you say it enough time it must be true, right? No. And the fact is, the outcome of the trial isn't really going to determine who "won" and who "lost." What's going to determine the loser is who gets exposed and what information comes out that damages their careers and their credibility even further than they do on their own right now.

I still don't get the "big butt" thing. Like I've said before, I bet it's hard to "snap off a loaf", and I'll bet she has skid marks longer and wider than a Boeing 747. She should just get a disability check for her deformed booty, and she should ride off in the sunset on her Mom's broom. just sayin'!

Didn't she say--ON CAMERA--that she wished she hadn't gone through with the wedding but didn't know how to back out of it once she'd got caught up in the frenzy?

If he is able to prove fraud and get an annulment then wouldn't he have the grounds to sue for money?

He should've just went with the quick divorce and moved on. He's dragging this out and will still end up with nothing. It's sad that he's spending so much energy on being negative.

After checking last year's NBA Playoff schedule, it appears that most games are played in the evening on weekdays. Depending on where a game is being played and at what time, it is very possible Kris could both attend court and play in the same day. He does have money to pay for private jets. Also, the judge could reconsider once there is a CONFIRMED conflict, not just a speculated conflict.

FYI....he's a damn weirdo. I knew he was crazy the first time I laid eyes on him. You can see it. If she ends up dead, I will not be surprised.

Kris has every right. The eggplant loving whore spread her nasty ass legs just to be known.Then she marrys kris for money and ratings. wakes up out of la la land 72 days later and realizes **** kris is mixed i need to get a divorce.
