Knicks' Smith fires back at Humphries

Kris Humphries just can't escape his Kim Kardashian days.
The Brooklyn Nets big man, who gained mainstream notoriety for his short-lived marriage to the reality TV beauty, seems always to be the butt of jokes, especially within the cruel world of social media. On Monday, it was New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith who took a shot at Humphries.
Humphries’ Nets had just pulled off an 88-85 victory over Smith’s Knicks at Madison Square Garden, which had Humphries a bit fired up. The man once known by many as Mr. Kardashian thus decided to tweet about how quiet Knicks fans were on the way out, and that clearly didn’t sit well with Smith, who had missed a shot at the buzzer.
So what did Smith do? Well, he went down the expected path, dropping a joke that referenced Kardashian’s new man, singer Kanye West. West had announced last month that he and Kardashian were expecting a baby.
Enjoy the schoolyard-esque exchange below.
