It's bad enough that Kris Humphries has to endure the Barclays Center boo-birds, but now the Nets forward's ears are being bombarded by the raps of Kanye West every time he enters a nightclub to unwind.
Club deejays seem to enjoy torturing Humphries with the vocal stylings of his ex-wife Kim Kardashian's new paramour and it's apparently affecting his game —off the court.
Humphries' futility with the ladies was reportedly witnessed Wednesday night at the Manhattan hotspot WiP — you might remember it as the place Tony Parker almost lost an eye during the infamous Drake-Chris Brown brawl — where he went after the New York Knicks blew out the Nets at Madison Square Garden.
Humphries was apparently chatting up some women and trying to score a few digits while an uninterrupted stream of West's music blared throughout the club, said a source.
"He was trying to talk to every girl in there and was getting turned down by every girl he spoke to," an eyewitness told the New York Daily News' Confidential.
The source said the two deejays, Chuck Barrett and Scram Jones, piled on the Kanye beats and by the time they played "Mercy" and "Clique," Humphries had had enough.
"He took a bottle of Patron that he didn't pay for, put it in front of his crotch and dumped the entire thing on the floor, because he was wasted and tired of Kanye songs," said the witness. "Not only was he acting like he was peeing the bottle out, he insisted on staying."
The wear and tear of an NBA season must be nothing compared to the travails of a 72-day marriage to Kardashian and the drawn-out divorce they are still embroiled in but still, not worth pretending to piss away a good bottle of tequila.
Last month, reports Confidential, Humphries tried to pick up DJ Kalkutta, after another Nets loss, while she was spinning a West tune — now that's sad.
"He emailed a couple of times," said the vinyl spinner. "But I never answered."
A season with the Kardashians, a mid-season Nets collapse and an unending loop of Kanye. Can't this poor guy get a break?

Jason Kidd and Deron Williams both know what it’s like to play for Avery Johnson, and they both understand how it feels to not be fully comfortable playing for him.

Kidd, who had some disagreements with...

The Brooklyn Nets might be the trendiest team of this NBA season, after all, they have a new home, a beautiful new arena, a new mascot, a stylish hip-hip mogul as the face of the franchise, and new threads to boot, but even after all those things, the Nets are still the Nets.
They may have changed their look, heck, they’ve even switched their team up, but the fact remains there...
