Kris Humphries cant be solely to blame for the loss to the Bulls last week but I’m sure his drinking and partying the night before helps his case.
As US Magazine reports:
According to a source, the towering athlete was “out late” at NYC hotspot Beauty & Essex on Friday evening, arriving around 9 p.m. and leaving past 1 in the morning.
Humphries, 28, was at the venue to celebrate his older model sister Kaela’s 30th birthday and didn’t hold back as he “fist pumped a little bit” and showed off a few dance moves, the source added.
“Kris was drinking champagne and stayed late. He was a jerk to everyone,” another eyewitness told US.
But another source told Us, “He left with his mother. He wasn’t out of control, he was celebrating his sister’s birthday. If anyone knows Kris, they know that family and basketball are the most important things in his life.”
“In the pros, you are not monitored, so to speak, unless you are on the road,” another source explains to US Weekly. “It is assumed you know what to do the night before a game. But, no! You do not go out the night before a Game 7 of the playoffs. You don’t do it, period.”
I guess Humphries took a page out of JR Smith book. Humphries alone didn’t lose that game, the Bulls were just the better team, they fought together and they wanted it more. I don’t think Humphries not partying with his family would have made much difference.
