Kris Humphries -- who was once obsessed with proving to the world that Kim Kardashian was a love fraud -- now says he gave up his battle because of his love of BBall.
A rep for Kris tells TMZ, "Kris and his family are excited to move forward and are grateful for all the support they have received in this process."
The rep then sets the priorities straight: "His commitment to the Brooklyn Nets and the team's incredible fans is his number one priority and he is excited to head into the playoffs tomorrow with this situation behind him."
TMZ broke the story ... Kris settled his divorce beef with Kim and walked away with nothing -- he didn't get the annulment he sought and didn't get a penny.
