Humphries, who had 11 points and 13 rebounds in the Brooklyn Nets’ 88-85 win at Madison Square Garden, bragged on Twitter about his team quieting the home crowd.
“Big game tonight! The Garden got really quiet on the way out!” he wrote.
Knicks guard JR Smith didn’t like what he read, so he hit Humphries back with a Kanye West taunt.

Kanye of course is the new boyfriend of Humphries’ ex, Kim Kardashian. Kris and Kim are still technically married, though they have been separated since Kardashian filed for divorce in Oct. 2011, 72 days after they were married.
Kanye performed at the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert at MSG last month, leading to the well-timed tweet from Smith.
Smith has gotten himself into trouble over Twitter in the past, but he’ll only get laughs from this one. Well played JR, well played.
