Knicks guard aims trash talk at Kim Kardashian's ex.
The New York Knicks lost to their new crosstown rivals the Brooklyn Nets last night when guard J.R. Smith’s final shot missed the basket. The Nets held onto an 88-85 win, only one game behind the Knicks in the Atlantic Division for the first time since November. But although the Knicks and Smith lost on the court, they pulled out a win over their foes somewhere else — on Twitter.
Shortly after that final buzz, Net power forward Kris Humprhies — better known around these parts as Kim Kardashian’s ex — posted a gloating, smack-talking tweet. “Big game tonight!” he wrote. “The Garden got really quiet on the way out! #Brooklyn”
The message was retweeted more than a thousand times, but it wasn’t just fans who took notice. The Knicks’ Smith tweeted back the following retort: “Wasnt quiet when Kanye tore it down last month!”
He may have missed that last shot, but he hit a three-pointer (with a foul) here: Kanye West did indeed perform at MSG last month as part of the 12-12-12 benefit concert, but there’s no doubt that the tweet was also a not-so-subtle dig over the fact the rapper also impregnated Humphries' ex. On Dec. 31, Kanye announced that he and Kim were expecting.
