Kris Humphries Wouldn't Have Allowed A Kardashian TV Show To Ruin HIS BB Career

There’s no way Kris Humphries would ever have put his basketball career in danger like Lamar Odom has, a friend of Kris’s tells exclusively.

Kris Humphries must be breathing a deep sigh of relief that no matter how badly he has felt since the end of his marriage to Kim Kardashian, he hasn’t let it affect his NBA career.

Now has learned exclusively that Kris would never have allowed shooting Kourtney & Kim Take New York or Keeping Up With The Kardashians or any other Kardashian TV show, to have derailed him like ex-brother-in-law Lamar Odom, who will not be playing with the Dallas Mavericks for the rest of the season.

“Kris’s career has always been his first priority. It’s all he thinks about when he’s in season,” a friend of Humphries says. “If he felt that filming any Kardashian TV show was a distraction, he wouldn’t have done it. Basketball is his priority.”

And apparently when Kim was engaged to Kris, she agreed that his basketball career had to be a priority for both of them. “Before she was married, she always told Kris, she would live wherever his career took him, (like Khloe did for Lamar),” says the source.

Of course, we know that once Kim was a married woman, her feelings about that changed. Anyone who watched the last season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, knows that Kim took the position once the pair was married that her career was equally if not more important than Kris’s, and that she had no intention of living wherever Kris’s career took him.

“She absolutely refused to live in Minnesota, where Kris is from, for example,” says the source.

Now, we at feel any woman’s career is absolutely as important, if not more important than her man’s, but this huge issue – competing priorities – sure has to be discussed and agreed upon before you tie the knot!

In any case – Kris, clearly feels like he dodged a bullet that hit Lamar and he’s been having the best season of his career with the New Jersey Nets this year. “‘Thank goodness for basketball,’ he’s been telling friends,” his pal reveals.
