The man who America has had in the back of their minds all week is finally speaking up!
Kris Humphries just signed on with the New Jersey Nets for a contract worth about $8 million — and now he's speaking up about it!
No Kim talk here, just basketball:
"My outlets in life are God, family and basketball. I'm happy to have basketball back. I feel like I'm home, man. Look, if you ask any player who plays basketball, they all want a max contract with the longest terms possible. But I'm happy with the deal that I got, and I'm happy to be back here. I know that the team is moving in a new direction, and I'm just happy to be a part of that. Life just happens. I'm a positive thinker. In life I always look at the things that I can control, which is being ready and working on my game."
We hope that with all this divorce drama going on that he'll actually be able to play at the same level he has — it'd be a shame for the Nets to blow $8 million on someone who's way to distracted to perform.
Only time will tell, we guess!
Regardless of what happened — good luck, Kris!
