Avery Johnson Doesn’t Know Why Kris Humphries is Being Booed
Soon enough, fans will grow tired of booing Kris Humphries. To his credit, Humphries responded in the best way possible when Wizards fans booed him every time he touched the ball on Monday night and put together a tremendous game. The Nets’ new forward dropped 21 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to help get New Jersey off to a solid start in 2011. While Humphries described the boos as a “walk in the park” compared to what he heard at Madison Square Garden during the preseason, Nets coach Avery Johnson acted confused by them.
“I don’t know why,” Nets coachAvery Johnson said when asked about the boos according to the NY Post. “I’m trying to figure out, what did he do? I’m serious. Maybe because I don’t follow reality TV, I don’t know all the ins and outs of it but it’s pretty hilarious to me. I don’t know if they even know why they’re booing him.”
Come on, Avery — you know. Humphries knew exactly what he was getting himself into when he got involved with Kim Kardashian. He may not have known it would resulted in him becoming a more hated player than LeBron James, but he was aware of the risk. If it was attention Humphries was after when he got involved with the Kardashian family, he’s certainly accomplished his goal.
However, I can’t say I blame Johnson for playing dumb. If Humphries can perform every night like he did in the first game of the season, Nets fans will be hoping every arena gives him the same treatment the Knicks and Wizards fans dished out.
