As his first game against the New York Knicks on Wednesday proved, Kris Humphries isn't exactly the most popular player in the NBA.
In fact, a recent survey has found Kim Kardashian's soon-to-be-ex-husband is actually the LEAST popular player this year. He even beat out LeBron James, who became disliked by fans across the nation after leaving Cleveland for a championship shot with the Miami Heat.
In a Nielsen E-Poll Market Research survey, the 26-year-old came in first (really, last) with 50% of those surveyed as their least favorite player.
Innerestingly enough, guess who also made the list of the NBA's most disliked players? Khloe Kardashian's husband Lamar Odom!
The former Laker, who was recently traded to the Dallas Mavericks, was ranked as the 10th least liked player on the survey.
Hmm…we see a connection here. Maybe it's not the players that basketball fans hate, but their wives! Ha!
At the end of the day though, Kris is still making $8 million for one season with the New Jersey Nets, so we don't feel too bad for him.
