What an awesome tweet by Kris Humphries. The Nets power forward signed with the Nets for an estimated $24 million over two years. His offseason has been a rocky one, especially considering that his name was part of the supposed Dwight Howard trade, but Humphries, who is best (and unfairly) known for his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian, is finally where he wants to be. So when the news broke, Humphries tweeted this:
Kris Humphries: I’m up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ “lucky I didn’t have Jay drop me from team” lol!
So damn awesome! Humphries is referencing the lyrics by Kanye West, current boyfriend of Kim Kardashian. On the track “cold,” West said, “Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team,” I couldn’t be happier Humphries fired back.
Kanye, like the rest of the world, has the foolish notion that Jay-Z, a minority owner of the Nets, has the power to significantly influence the decisions of the Nets…laughable. It’s not Jay-Z’s fault that pompous morons like Kanye use his name constantly in reference with the team.
Humphries, who averaged a double-double last year, has been the victim of hatred for simply being in a relationship with Kardashian. Now Kanye’s in love with the big booty brunette, and he’ll tell anybody who will listen to his music.
Humphries is a solid basketball player who got in over his head with Kim Kardashian, we gotta let it go. More importantly Humphries’ re-signing makes the Nets a significant contender in the Eastern Conference. They should be a playoff team, and Humphries will be a significant part of that.
Meanwhile, maybe Kanye will watch him play, or maybe he won’t. He might be busy with a fashion show that weekend, or busy ranting on twitter endlessly about his life. Either way, it’s easy for me to see who’s the more annoying Kardashian accomplice, and it certainly isn’t the one who keeps quiet and helps his basketball team.
