I have to give Kris Humphries credit for accomplishing the impossible.  He replaced LeBron James as the most disliked player in the NBA.  Humphries has had to deal with getting booed every time he touches the ball when the New Jersey Nets play on the road.  Not because he predicted to win seven championships.  Not because he committed any crimes.  Not because he abandoned his hometown team or asked for a trade or had his jersey burning in any streets.  No, because he was married to Kim Kardashian for the approximate length of time Chip Kelly was head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  

But now, Kris Humphries has to move on with his life as a serviceable NBA big man.  However, he remains loathed by sports fans for a sham wedding to one of the lowest lifeforms on the planet, reality television stars.  I assume there's also a section of the population, however tiny, screaming "how could he do that to Kimmy!!!"  Nevertheless, Kris Humphries is evidently going to go down the long road of recovering his image by ditching his public relations team and focusing on his basketball career.  Here's details from The Hollywood Gossip...

The New Jersey Nets power forward/E! star has called it quits with Anderson Public Relations, TMZ confirms, following disagreements between the company and the Humphries over how to best promote the latter off the court.

Kris' relationship with Anderson lasted 73 days, so, hey, that's an improvement of 24 hours for the guy!

Sources say he now wants to focus solely on basketball, which ought to be welcome news for the woeful Nets.

The source of Humphries' divorce (too soon?) with his PR team is evidently this disaster of an interview with GMA co-host and ESPN alum Josh Elliott.  You can't blame him for trying to stay away from any sort of spotlight in that regard, although I'd love to be a fly on the wall on those discussions of improving Kris Humphries' public image.  I suppose he could fall in love with a Perkins waitress, although that's kind of been done before.

I hate to admit this, but after watching Kris Humphries "perform" on Kourtney & Kim Take New York (don't judge me!), he actually makes me feel sympathy for the Kardashians.  I shudder at typing those words.  Who knows, maybe it's clever E! editing trying to save face for Kim and Kris Humphries is a fine gentleman who can go on to a popular NBA career after this little speed bump in Hollywood.  Then again, maybe Kris Humphries is just an idiot...

Kris Humphries Embraces the Boos: ‘I Love a Hostile Environment on the Road’

Brian Scalabrine made the play of his career last night (Video)

  Brian Scalabrine with the reverse lay-in! At first, this is a play guys like LeBron James and Kobe Bryant make routinely, so to the casual observer this might not be much.

The phenomenon of Brian Scalabrine is remarkable...
