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 ... ?

He is a moron.I've heard tons of people saying she should just give him the annulment if she really wants it over with.She wont because she could easily get sued for all the money spent on the wedding that was aired

While I understand the principle and standing up for the annulment. Dont cut off your nose to spite yourself. Career will help your trying to survive when you are old. FYI..It aint easy.

TMZ is guilty of yellow journalism. TMZ comments are so one sided towards Kimmykay, TMZ does not want to upset any of the Trashians by giving the slightest impression of agreeing with Kris Humphries. Why? Afraid you won't get exclusive news about Kimmykay? Everything about that family either twisted or lies, like Kim K's wedding.

You know, I don't blame him. He's been slammed and hurt by this bizarre clan on reality fame-mongers. I'm glad he's getting his time in court.

Harvey remember you said OJ on trial for double homicide was unwinnable, but he won so who knows Kris might win also.

I don't blame him. SHE is the one who humiliated him, ON her reality show. Coming back from Dubai, she basically said to her mother, who undoubtedly was playing her part, that she didn't want to go back to Kris Humphries.
She would NOT even allow him to move his belongings into her home.
Did they even get to that point, or did she deny him access to her home?
