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 deserves an annulment the marriage was obviously a fraud. She didnt want to do angthing to save the marriage, the show was fake, and she vot pregnant while still married. Kim k is fake, you spen 20 mill on a wedding and get divorced in 72 days? No respect for marriage. Humphries wants NO record or affiliation to the marriage. He will be deemed single not divorced , theres a difference. **** was a sham.

Just about all the teams make the playoffs - or at least it seems like it - and ordinary people have to take time off work to deal with things in life, including going to court. He shouldn't get special treatment (like another delay) because he plays basketball.

Kris, can you just let this go? Listen, it's obvious you were not ready to be married in the first place so why waste all this time and energy trying to stick it to someone who already has a boatload of karma coming to her? You may think you are hurting her, but really you are hurting yourself more. Karma will even itself out, just stop belitting yourself. There is a great saying 'he who seeks vengence must dig two graves - one for his enemy and one for himself'. Move on.

Why should he give her a divorce? Why can't she just give him an annulment??? Just to not make herself look like what she already is anyway, Trash. God, I can't believe I used to like them in the beginning, thank you God for waking me up!!! Get these w h o r e s out of the media!

I hate Kim as much as the next guy, but Kris needs to give it up. He thinks he's making Kim look bad, but really he's making himself look like a jackass. Instead of dragging this thing out, he should be glad that sh_t between he and Kim is over and move on with his life. You marry the biggest fame-whore out there and this is what happens to you.

Kris is not stupid, he's had plenty of time to think this over. He was part of this fake family long enough and will prove they are all frauds. If he can get the unedited footage and other things he wants he will show the world how fake this family is.
