Kris Humphries’ coach enjoys all the booing!

Last week, Kris Humphries was welcomed back to the NBA with a whole lotta booing from the crowd, which is weird because Kim Kardashian has pretty much banged the entire league at this point so at this point, why even bother? Anyway, Kris’ coach has come forward asking the fans to boo even more, because apparently he likes it when his players are actively aware of who hates them. Us Weekly reports:

“People were talking crazy last year,” Humphries told The Record. “There might be a little bit more this year, but to me, it’s motivation. They want to have a reason to say something, so you have to try to not give them that reason,” he added. “For me, it makes it a hostile environment and it’s kind of fun to play in that environment.”

Though he was booed by a crowd of 17,102 fans during Monday’s season opener, Humphries helped lead the New Jersey Nets to a 90-84 victory over the Washington Wizards. Compared to his experience at Madison Square Garden, Humphries says Monday’s game “was a walk in the park.” Meanwhile, coach Avery Johnson said he’s still puzzled by the crowd’s reaction to Kim Kardashian’s ex.

“I’m trying to figure it out — what did he do?” Johnson asked. “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. Keep booing him,” Johnson teased. “We’ll take the 20 and 16.”

The weird thing about all of this: apparently, a lot of basketball fans are heavily invested in Keeping Up with the Kardashians. And if making jokes about Kim has taught me anything, it’s that no one cares about what Kardashian fans think because … well, they’re Kardashian fans. If they don’t like you, it’s because you’re the opposite of the Kardashians, which I guess means you’re the anti-selfish, narcissistic, lying ho-bag.
