Kris Humphries voted NBA's most disliked player

Celebrate Kris Humphries, you just beat out LeBron James for something. Well, maybe you should check what that something is first.

According to Forbes, via a poll conducted Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research, Humphries was voted the NBA's most disliked player. Fifty percent voted to dislike Humphries while No. 2, LeBron, picked up 48 percent. I guess people either were really mad about the 72-day Kim Kardashian marriage or there are a lot of sympathetic people towards Kim K. I have a feeling it's not the latter.

“He’s been on five magazine covers, all in a negative light,” Stephen Master, VP at Nielsen Sports, which helped run the survey, told Forbes.  “It’s all so recent, he’s gotten all this publicity for something other than basketball talent.”

It is surprising that a little reality show and Hollywood marriage would bump Humphries all the way up this list topping people like LeBron, Carmelo Anthony, Tony Parker (who divorced from actress Eva Longoria with reports of cheating), Kobe Bryant (who is getting divorced) and Chris Bosh.

I'm noticing a theme though: NBA fans don't like divorce, I guess.

Here's the full top 10:

1. Kris Humphries (50 percent dislike)
2. LeBron James (48 percent)
3. Kobe Bryant (45 percent)
4. Tony Parker (37 percent)
5. Metta World Peace (36 percent)
6. Chris Bosh (34 percent)
7. Carmelo Anthony (27 percent)
8. Paul Pierce (25 percent)
9. Dwyane Wade (23 percent)
10. Lamar Odom (21 percent)

Its his fault he got stabbed?  I'd like to think that no matter what he said there are no words that can justify physical violence but appearantly in your world there are.

Any guy who can't make a marriage work with the wonderfully talented Kim Kardashian deserves to be number 1 on the most disliked players not only in the NBA but all of sports. /end sarcasm


(You wouldn't believe how hard it is to type the words "wonderfully talented" and "Kim Kardashian" in the same sentence.)


The funny thing is both of the guys who have "Kardashian" ties are on the 10 most disliked players list. The ironic part is that the one that is still married to a Kardashian is lower on the list than the guy who was used as a public sham by Kim K.

The good news for Kris Humphries is that is marriage lasted longer than the upcoming NBA shortened season. 72 days > 66 games.

I'm sure they were just trying to make some money from those stupid mags. They got paid lots of money for their wedding from the mags. He didn't know it would blow up so bad. Oh well, that Kardashian chick will be forgotten soon as her butt sags. He will go on and make more money plaing basketball. I mean really, chick is known for what? Her did got OJ off. Her mom married Bruce Jenner. Wher eis her talent? She has none. Just a pretty face that can spend money. Sad that Kris ever got involved in that mess but, the mony was good.

No matter what you say, nobody deserves to be stabbed over and over like that. Your ignorant if you think anyone does!

Paul Pierce is a tool, that is why he is on the list. Watch him on the court, he whines more than any other player. he flops more than anyone I have seen. He is a dirty ballplayer. Hits a 3 pointer and stands there to watch while the other players are on the other end of the court. Do you think he was an innocent victim when he got stabbed in the face 13 times outside a nightclub. Do you wonder if he didn't provoke it? Come on, man.

Whoa...whoa...poor Kris Humphries! He is Mr. oblivion until he gets pursued by a whore, then marries the whore, then the whore dumps him in the name of reality tv and he gets hated? Does the whore get off free in this debacle? And will CBS allow me to use "whore" in this post?
