Kris Humphries Surpasses LeBron James As NBA's Most Disliked

Thursday December 22nd, 2011

Former Kim Kardashian beau Kris Humphries has surpassed LeBron James as the league’s most disliked player, according to a poll put together by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research.

Among the group polled, 50% of people said they dislike Humphries. Humphries drew national attention over the last year for his engagement, marriage, and eventual divorce with reality television star Kim Kardashian. The two were wed on national television Aug. 20, 2011, and filed for divorce just 72 days later.

LeBron James, last year’s winner of the dubious honor, came in second with 48% of respondents reporting that they disliked him. James drew the ire of many fans when he publically announced his intentions of leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat.
