Kris Humphries is still a member of the Brooklyn Nets, even though the team reportedly tried extremely hard to deal him before the trade deadline. The underachieving forward has found a way to make himself noteworthy, though, despite scoring and rebounding averages that are at three-year lows.
Before a late edit, the New Orleans Hornets included a mention of Humphries’ brief marriage to Kim Kardashian in their game notes for Tuesday’s game against the Nets.
“Nets F Kris Humphries once married Kim Kardashian,” read a bullet point under HORNETS-NETS CONNECTIONS. “And well, you know. It’s news.”
The sarcastic note was since removed from the online version, but not before Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News snapped a screenshot.

He was a late scratch says Howard Beck of the New York Times. Johnson suffered the injury a few days ago and has been diagnosed with pan tar fascists. The condition is one of the more unpredictable as it can limit a player...
Most professional athletes have a hard time doubling as public speakers, but it is a part of their job description. The most overused phrase or filler among athletes who are being interviewed is “you know.” For whatever reason, this is the comfort zone for many people in pro sports when they’re standing in front of a microphone.

Joe Johnson has missed the Nets' last two games with an ankle injury and might miss tonight's as well. As shown in the recent losses to the Rockets and Grizzlies, this team needs him on the court badly

Finally, we can give D-Will the game-ball in a Nets win
It wasn't easy and it wasn't pretty, but it was a win.

Brooklyn held a 22-point lead at one point in the second quarter but...
You might remember Kat Stacks, she was one of the first “Social Media” attention whores to come on the scene. YouTube videos, Tweets and interviews exposing rappers all across the land. She ended up being deported and in jail for almost in two years before recently being released, but she paved the way for the millions of social media attention whores we all have to deal with...
