Opposing crowds have been giving Kris Humphries the business so far this season. But nobody did it bigger than a group of Toronto Raptors fans.

There's been a major backlash against the New Jersey Nets forward for his 72-day marriage with reality television star Kim Kardashian, which abruptly ended in divorce back in October. A rebounding specialist who mostly flew under the radar prior to the relationship, Humphries has been booed by crowds around the league and was even voted the most disliked NBA player in December.

Now in his eighth NBA year, Humphries was a member of the Raptors during the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 seasons. The Nets made their first trip to the Air Canada Centre on Friday night, and the Toronto crowd was lying in wait. A group of fans sitting in the lower-level brought giant cardboard cutout pictures of Humphries' ex-wife Kim and her family. The images created an immediate stir, leading fellow fans to snap photos of them, as you can see in the shot to the right. Picture via @JaySatur

The Toronto Sun has a picture of the whole posse plus an interview with one of the sign-holders, who provides their rationale.
Yet the New Jersey Nets power forward couldn’t escape his ex. About 10 minutes into the second quarter, a group of men in the fourth row held up huge signs bearing the faces of the Kardashian women.

“It’s just to rattle him a little,” said one of the sign bearers, who wished to remain anonymous for “obvious reasons.”

The men didn’t get much mileage out of their signs, which were confiscated by ACC staff for being malicious.

Humphries got the last laugh on Friday. The Nets got the road win, 97-85. While shooting just 2-for-8 for six points, he finished with a game-high 16 rebounds.

I'm confused by these signs. I confess to never having watched anything involving any of these creatures*, but I was under the impression that none of them go anywhere without a giant chocolate ttotsie roll pop. Am I perhaps mistaken?

*Nothing against the young things personally, but their unfortunate association with BOTH an O.J. lawyer AND an honorary 'Village Person' kinda creeps me out.

Kris Humphries was voted the most disliked player??  How fickle are all you NBA fans.  All last season and  awhile beyond that title was held by he whose name will not be mentioned (but his initials are LeBron James).  How quickly they forget!!!  I wonder how Humphries did in the Ohio precincts???

I watch plenty of TV, but proud to report I'm one of plenty of Americans that has never watched the Kardashians... not even once.  Just the commercials make me feel instantly dumber, and I refuse to help people become famous before an accomplishment.

I do give the fans about a 6 for creativity, though.  I'll be watching when the Raptors make their lottery pick.

I the post game interview, Humphries did say that while he's glad the marriage is over that it was "hard to leave her behind."

Maybe he can get some alimony and cheekal visitation rights.  Besides, nothing better to shut up the opposing fans than to leave with a W.


"hard to leave her behind" lol

Don't worry in a few years Kris will be laughing AT who ever marries Kim, he should count himself lucky he not married to that sl#t anymore.

Now that is funny. Anybody that feels sorry for this guy needs a reality check. If he can't take it then retire, isn't like he needs the money. The guy is set for life, if he's smart with his money (which most b-ball players aren't).
