(Newser) – Who knew so many Kim Kardashian fans like basketball? They were apparently out in force when the New York Knicks played the New Jersey Nets at Madison Square Garden yesterday—and resoundingly booed Kardashian's 72-day hubby, Kris Humphries. The Knicks crowd zinged Humphries every time he touched the ball during his six-minute stint on court during the Nets' 88-82 pre-season loss, notes ESPN.

Knicks star forward Carmelo Anthony enjoyed the razzing of his Nets rival. "New York fans are New York fans. I like it, to be honest with you," he said. "Our fans shouldn't be cheering" for anybody else. Humphries seemed to take it in stride—maybe because the lonely boy just re-upped with the Nets for a cool $8 million. But he's likely to face that kind of reaction again: A Nielsen survey found that Humphries is the NBA's most disliked player, with 50% of those surveyed choosing one of these options: dislike, dislike somewhat, or dislike a lot. Who did he beat out? LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Tony Parker, and Ron Artest/Metta World Peace round out the top five, reports Forbes.

sports fans booing opponents and hated rivals no less? this is an unheard of revelation the likes of which we have never seen before what is this world coming to?! I highly doubt any b-ball fan especially in NY and NJ even come close to giving a flying fuck about that stupid bitch with the butt, they probably weren't actually booing humph any worse than any other player on the court. Knicks and Nets fans have enough to boo about with their own teams let alone any other team.

Knicks fans aren't really basketball fans. They're like Lakers fans -- there for the show and they want to be part of it.
