Kris Humphries

I Chose Basketball

Over Kim's Depo

3/22/2013 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0321_kris_humphries_getty2_article
Kris Humphries is true to the adage, Hoops before Hoes ... and that's precisely why he was a no-show at Kim Kardashian's deposition.

You'll recall ... Kris' lawyer, Lee Hutton, talked about Kris' constitutional right to look Kim in the eyes as she testified under oath about their short-lived marriage.

So why, you ask, did Kris miss that golden opportunity? Sources close to the BBaller tell TMZ ... Kris had practice and travel obligations Tuesday, as Kim sat for her marathon, 9-hour depo. He had just finished a game Monday night in Michigan, had practice Tuesday and was traveling later that day to Dallas for a Wednesday game.

We're told Kris is adamant about one thing -- attending the May 6 trial, even if it conflicts with the playoffs. So hoes don't always come in second.

Atleast someone has his priorities straight. Lamar could have learned alot from him, and still had a basketball career instead of be a Kardashian.

What happened to TMZ spouting "He's was off that day and he still didn't come!" . Whatever. I bet someone called your ass on the BS you guys say and you decided to run this.

TMZ -- you really need to get your facts straight. KRIS HUMPHRIES DID NOT PLAY IN MONDAY'S GAME OR Wednesday's game for that matter.

He hasn't played since March 2nd because the coach benched him and took him out of rotation!

It's sad that no one on staff follows basketball.

Kris is currently a loser bench rider. The end.

I see the mentals are out early as usual. You people are hilarious, you are like crack addicts, you claim not to like her or her family but you can't bypass an article about her, you MUST click and you MUST comment, that is an addiction and it's sad that you are all addicted to berating another human being, a pregnant one at that. SMDH!!! and I bet you all are always the ones that wonder why me when sh*t happens. Hmmmmmm!!! just take a look at what you write and the thought process, there is your answer.

and you want us to believe you have somebody in Kris's camp!
We know how the deposition went by other sites, not with your spin. Kim was horrible when put on the spot.
So don't think because Mike posts a story about the Kdashians we are going to believe it.

Poor Kim... Stuck with a Kanye baby and no Kanye around since March 3rd. Usually guys just bang her then ditch but she was getting old and tried to trap Kanye but he wants nothing of it... Haha

So basically Kris had to WORK because he has a real job and a real talent something Kim knows NOTHING about as she has neither. As for all the talk of a "marathon" deposition. Big Deal. She sat on her Fatt A** for nine hours what is so hard about that? It is basically what she does for a living anyway so how is it any different than any other fday in her life?

I don't appreciate you referring to women as hoes. Kris is more of a "hoe" than Kim is. So not funny.

Tmz- thanks for supporting the double standard and just lack of respect for women in general. Your choice of words reminds me of 14 year old boy. No wonder so many men are confused nowadays . they see content like this and think its then acceptable. Can't you just report normal news without the derogatory language ? Is it that hard?

Kim keeps getting more and more surgical faced. I'm going to take bets on Kanye telling her to have a tummy tuck, boob job, face lift, more eye work, and a nose job immediately after their spawn hatches. He knows that drill. Buh bye Kimmy.
