Kris Humphries

I'd Miss NBA Playoffs ...

To Screw Kim in Court

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 ... ?

Maybe you guys need to have writers who know a little bit about the basketball before writing stories on NBA players.

"Screw over his team" & "let his team down"??? He is averaging 6 points per game. I think the Nets will do fine without him.

Lets hope Kim and the K-trash family has made enough enemies in the past that Kris has some supporters. Kim personally screwed Damon Thomas, Ray J, Reggie Bush and I'm sure plenty more. Karma!

Let his team down? The guy plays less than 20 minutes per game, averages a whole 6 points and 6 rebounds per game, and is basically just a third option. I hope he loses his contract and never plays again.

Yeah,right. He would miss the playoffs just to piss kim off. He would burn his team mates ruin his career. Humphries is not Lamar Odem.


Humphries is happy, has a good solid career, great family and good friends. Everything Kim doesn't have.


All Kim has is money and doing whatever and use whomever it takes to make more money. Hell she's even using the baby. Humphries is causing her stress crap as she's flying all over the place.

Her problem is that her looks will fade very quickly, will need more plastic surgery to fix the old plastic surgery and so on. Kid or no kid West will move when he's done.

Hey, TMZ: Could you make it any more obvious you're on the Kartrashians' payroll? Obviously, Kimmy is stomping mad because Humphries isn't in the business of caving in to her just because she wants things her way. Welcome to the real world, Kimmy. People are NOT going to ask "How high?" when you say "Jump." And we're well aware that Kimmy and "family" are fakes and untalented fame whores, but kudos to Humphries for wanting to make that official. How about Kimmy growing up and doing something radical for once as in give this man the annulment he wants so the situation can be done and over with. (After all, no one told you to get knocked up by one guy while you're married to another, pig!)
