Kris Humphries heard it once again at Madison Square Garden last night: BOOOOO!
But this time the Nets power forward left The World’s Most Famous Arena with a reason to smile, despite the reception he received by opposing fans, as New Jersey defeated New York 100-92. Humphries played a key role in the victory, too, with 14 points and 14 rebounds.
“I love the hostile environment,” Humphries told ESPN after the game. “There’s nothing better than sending 19,000 people home upset… We love that.”
Kris is also the latest in a very long lien to give props to Jeremy Lin, the NBA’s latest sensation, but not for anything the Harvard graduate did on the court last night. Instead, Lin apparently gave Kris a big assist in the tunnel leading to the locker rooms.
“He just said, ‘Hey, I don’t know why they boo you, but I think it’s crap, and you’re playing really well,'” Humphries said of Lin. “That was nice of him to say. He’s a really nice guy… It’s nice to see great things happen for nice people.”
Lin also has great taste in women: he recently said Kim Kardashian was not his type.
