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 ... ?

The big question? If Brooklyn and The Clippers are playing in the finals who does Kayne root for Kris Humphries or Lamar Odoms?

LOWEST you've ever sunk TMZ! This is downright defamation!

Being the Kardashian bitch that you are may not hurt your credibility where you had none to begin with, but there's some really stupid people who read you and believe you ... even they will start wondering when you've stooped this low!

You have no idea what KHump wants, thinks or anything else, he doesn't talk to you, and that's clear. You're just regurgitating whatever KJenner is paying you to. Slippery slope that one, but good luck with it.

Just because he regrets signing a prenup doesn't mean he can rewind time and undo a wedding, he proposed to her without a gun to his head, when he was already on the reality show himself and made the decision. Might be buyer's remorse, or regret how he blew it. Dude needs to move on all this revenge is not healthy for the douche.

I never could get into American Basketball or American "Football." I think it's quite daft. Daniel Sturridge of The Liverpool Football Club, is a wonderful athlete! They all are pretty good. They do Liverpool proud! The Liverpool F.C players are REAL sportsman!

Kris is such an idiot he is annoying the hell out of me! Kim haters are so low life I can't believe we live in a world with such bullies and jealous people! Please get over it Kris and move on. I watched the show and Kris was the fake one. Kris wants to prove so bad that it was all fake but we who looked at the show knows that Kris was the fake one and this is why the annulment is so important too him. GET OVER IT FOOL!!!!!!

Did he really said this? or TMZ just SPECULATED / ASSUMED he said this.

Get your facts right. You were paid to put this - by the Kardashians.

This site is becoming the lowest of the low when it comes to telling the truth. You FABRICATED and LIED this story. Lucky no one has sued you yet but hope someone does one day.

tmz is so bias, its really pitiful. the way this was written shows that without all the facts, you have found kris to be in the wrong. iam not stupid enough to think you are getting a kick back. but i do think you want to stay on kradashians good side because it gives you information first, from their camp. do you all love money so much that you think everyone is after money? you are making fun of kris hump, just like the others (fans, djs and kardashians). the news where he is involved are getting more hateful with each one. he just wants to be able to speak, without annulment he cant. he has been vilified and he is just supposed to roll over and let tmz and the kardashians, talk and print lies about him? its very unfair, since in america, we have freedom of speach (thats why you can print the things you do). its not fair! it is not his fault that kim, used him and tried to get reggie bush back(he didnt go for it). when he didnt want her she hooked up with kanye. then bush and kanyes ex are expecting child so surprise, surprise, kims gets pregnant. on purpose (she said on show when kloe went to dr. that he said she would have no problem getting pregnant). she is still in love with reggie bush and never intended to stay married to kris hump. that is why she went to reggie bush before filing for divorce, also why hump never moved to he r home after wedding and she didnt get plane tickets for his parents (when she got them for everyone else)to wedding. this whole thing is so insane.

Go Kris go. She used you for that stupid ass show. If there was no show that wedding would have been called off. Everyone know it. I don't understand why this case is unwinnable.
