It’s been a year of ups and downs for Nets forward Kris Humphries. On the negative side, he became a bit of a national punchline after his ill-fated romance(?) with Kim Kardashian and their corresponding reality TV show. On the positive, he signed a two-year, $24-million dollar contract to stay with the Nets as they moved to Brooklyn. We’ll call it a push.
Humphries appears to have accepted the turn of events in his life, and certainly hasn’t shrunk from the spotlight. Here he is participating in a photo shoot for a recent NY Post feature story:
Said Humphries of the past year’s turmoil:
“Hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself, you can’t make fun of other people,” he says. “I’m open to being made fun of. You can’t take life too seriously or be too sensitive because it’s like, who wants to live like that?”
That’s very true. And though it’s easy to tease Humphries for the outfits he’s wearing for this feature, something tells me the presence of his co-workers for the shoot made the whole process a little more tolerable.
