Jeremy Lin Sticks Up for Kris Humphries
Following Monday’s game between the teams at the Garden, New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin told New Jersey Nets power forward Kris Humphries that he doesn’t understand why Knicks fans boo Humphries and said he wanted him to know that he respects his game.
“I saw him in the tunnel outside the locker room after the game,” Humphries said during a Tuesday afternoon appearance on ESPN Radio’s “The Scott Van Pelt Show.”
“He’s a really nice guy,” said Humphries, who met Lin at an autograph signing in Los Angeles at the All-Star Game last year. “He just said, ‘Hey, I don’t know why they boo you, but I think it’s crap, and you’re playing really well.’ That was nice of him to say. He’s a really nice guy. … It’s nice to see great things happen for nice people.”
