Kris Humphries Evokes Rick Mahorn

Any time you have Kris Humphries and Rick Mahorn in the same sentence, you know something special happened.

They couldn’t be more different, in perception and on-court presence. I mean, could you imagine this happening to the former Pistons and Sixers bruiser?

But that may not be completely fair. Humphries gives decent effort and has a knack for the timely defensive play or two. He didn’t disappoint Sunday night against his old team in Brooklyn. While the electricity pivoted around the return of Hall of Famers to-be Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, Humphries had his own bit of motivation and dipped into his old-school bag of tricks to make Mahorn proud:

Instead of being the post warrior, he was the post magician. It’s a brilliant maneuver and has a 100 percent success rate. How isn’t this move pulled off more? Perhaps because subterfuge in battle is most effective when used seldomly? I’m not sure, but it needs more application. The look on Andray Blatche’s face while looking at a fired-up Humphries from his keister afterward was priceless.

It’s fitting that Humphries’ poster mate Blake Griffin fell victim to the same tactic almost two years ago:

Long live the old school.

    I like Humphries’s game. because he’s a big man that plays in the post in an era full of pick-and-roll offense. In my opinion, he should be one of the bet big men and PFs in the league and he was in his first few seasons with the next until they threw him under the bus. There was just no room for him in that rotation with Blatche and Evans on the team. I always wanted him to come to the Celtics and I got my wish even if it came with a cost. I hope he’s there long term. They’d be fools to give him up.

    He’s never been the same since dating that stupid Hollywood bitch.
