Kris Humphries broke backboard during Hawks practice
Atlanta Hawks big man Kris Humphries is likely nowhere even remotely close to your list of the most powerful players in the NBA, but he may be shooting his way up the rankings after what transpired on Saturday.
According to a report by Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Humphries broke a backboard with a dunk during a team practice session at Santa Monica High School in Southern California. The Hawks are in town to play the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.
Humphries posted a message of remorse (as well as an image of the wreckage) to his Instagram account shortly after the incident occurred.
Of course, high school baskets are probably significantly less sturdy than the ones that the pros are used to playing with. But it’s still an interesting feat of strength from the 31-year-old Humphries, who has a history of surprising us with anecdotes of his physical abilities.
