According to a report by Darren Rovell of CBS Sports, the Nets lost way more than just games during Bruce Ratner’s last two seasons as majority owner of the franchise. To be exact, the Nets lost 77.2 million dollars in those two seasons before Mikhail Prokhorov took over the team.
Now that we’ve gotten the insignificant news out of the way, we can finally discuss the real news! Apparently, Kris Humphries and his lovely fiancee Kim Kardashian are discussing getting a new reality TV show. The show will be similar to Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian’s series. However, for Kris, there is a speed-bump that he has to get by.
(I’ll try not to link Hollywood Life ever again.)
The team that signs Hump will have to agree to letting him have this show (as the Lakers have agreed with Odom). If Hump signed with the Nets, this could be a somewhat large post-lockout decision. If given the green light, Humphries would appear on the television screens of millions of Americans, giving he and the Nets a lot of publicity (don’t underestimate the potential here). However, the show could also become a distraction to the team as well as Hump. If Hump gets his own starring role, will he lose his attitude as a hardworking, bruising rebounder? Will he return back to tunnel vision Humphries?
What do you guys think? If the Nets had to decide whether or not to allow Humphries his spotlight, what would you want them to say?
