Jeremy Lin Thinks Knicks Fans Booing Kris Humphries Was ‘Crap’

New York Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden will pick out certain players and boo them mercilessely (which angers the Knicks when it happens to one of their own, understandably.) Point guard sensation Jeremy Lin didn’t enjoy hearing the MSG faithful boo his buddy Kris Humphries on Monday night. From the NY Post: “There’s one thing that Knicks fans and Jeremy Lin may disagree about. Lin has become an instant fan favorite with his unbelievable play that has spurred the Knicks to eight wins in 10 games. But the point guard thinks his adoring supporters, and crowds around the league, are a little Linsane for booing Nets forward Kris Humphries. The Garden crowd jeered Humprhies consistently throughout the Nets’ 100-92 win over the Knicks on Monday night. After the game, Humphries said he ran into Lin in the tunnel outside the locker room. ‘He’s a really nice guy,’ Humphries said of Lin on ESPN Radio. ‘He just said, ‘Hey, I don’t know why they boo you, but I think it’s crap. You are playing really well, and stuff.’ That was nice of him to say. He’s a really nice guy, competitor. It’s nice to see great things happen for nice people.’”

    Outstanding competitor, friend, and person. So glad to see Jeremy being such a positive force in the league!

  • RunNGun

    Wow… love how the media is really milking Linsanity; even on a Tuesday evening when the Knicks didn’t play.

  • hushabomb

    Wonder what Jeremy Lin has to say about Kim then…….

  • RunNGun

    @hushabomb He said Kim was not his type. LMAO

    Look, can we please go back to using insane,incredible,win,etc? Seriously. ESPN tried to turn bandwagon into bandwaglin. I love JLin but stop the madness!

  • Linsanity

    Jeremy never said fans were crap! I don’t understand this article’s purpose of making up such stupid story.

    Bangwaglin? LMAO.

    Linsanity… this sh*t is worse than tebowmania

  • misso

    kris humphries is playing very well & the ones that boo him are just haters

  • linsanity

    Jeremy never said fans were crap. I would warn you to prepare for legal consequences of spreading slander.

  • Riggs

    Kris Humphries is a walking brainfart, but he seriously shouldve stayed away from the kardashians.

  • http://www.twitter.com_dfrance dfrance21

    So I shouldn’t say that these comments he made about Humphries are Linspirational.

  • http://nyill.wordpress.com/ O

    Kris is a cornball to the 3rd degree, but seriously, since when did New Yorkers begin defending the Kardashian’s honor?? They ain’t even from here. I don’t watch the show but I heard Kris treats Kim like a bird. I give him daps for that. Bout time someone did. Kim’s coochie ain’t made of gold. If anything it’s made of that tree stump from the Apollo Theater. Every black dude gets to rub it down before performing…

    can’t wait for the “Kim and Lin” show on E! when they hook up. sigh. DONT DO IT JEREMY. and no, this ish isnt worse than Tebowmania. Lin can actually play

  • http://twitter.com/KingAkai Alpha-bet

    Im all for Linsanity after being skeptical first, but this story is a bit much though..It’s getting to “What Jeremy Lin ate for lunch today” levels..


    J Lin is tite unlike Kim’s crack side. Anyone seen the Predator coz her’s is as big as a house ! But anyways KRIS IS AN ASTRONAUT.

  • http://www.slamonline.com spit hot fiyah

    dfrance, please don’t

  • AD

    difference between this and tebow is that jlin has an decent game where tebow is awful for the majority of the game and then trows a winning TD or something like that in the fourth qrtr.. But this has to stop i hope Miami blows them out by 40 thursday night

  • bike

    Kris and Lin are buddies? WTF do they have in common?

  • AD

    why do ppl hate Kris tho Honestly? @O @RIGGS

  • Shifty

    Humphries has been playing descent basketball this season averaging a double double with a block and a half. Kudos to him for playing ball while getting boo’d in almost every arena. Even tho the nets do suck.

  • vp

    haha O killed it

  • robb

    Linsanity against global warming note coming up next.

  • doyouwantmore

    Kris Humphries is getting boo’ed by star-struck pop-culture zombies. Real basketball fans are watching his footwork.

    Could you imagine if Slam posted an article that said, “Toney Douglas Thinks Knicks Fans Booing Kris Humphries Was ‘Crap’” lol – just because he played good for 3 weeks his opinion matters? What a fake ass world we live in.

  • GC6

    Cosign nbk this Lin thing is a joke it is only because the knicks suck and they finally won a few games who cares the Knicks will be out in the first round


    My Jets fan spin…L I N…LIN! LIN! LIN!

    O ftw!

    Slams a business yo, this nothing Jlin story has already got 28 comments plus who knows how many more views. This sorta thing is not new.

    Again, look at the stats Lin is stuffing during a 10 game span since the Nets game on February 4th, which is when Linsanity began. At what point do the last few stragglers out there accept Lin’s averages? When will it be enough of a sample size? BOTTOM LINE: Knicks are a contenders right now. That’s a fact, not a delusional fanboy pov. Tomorrow night, on TNT, we are likely witnessing an Eastern Conference Finals preview. So much star power and bright lights. The Thrilla in South Beach. Me thinks this game is going to break ratings records. I hear fellow Harvard grad President Barack Obama is even going to be at the game tomorrow night…I must say, it’s kinda like a big deal. ;)

    I’m a Lin and Knicks Fan… but this guys^^^ on crack for real.

    I “spit” nothing but the truth, baby. Can’t wait for the game tomorrow night in Miami.

  • Justin G.

    You spit nothing but the truth? That’s a lie right there. You see what you want to see through your blinders but not what the rest of the basketball watching world sees, that’s for sure

    Extremely Relevant Player X playing in a big market has Y to say about Relevant Player Z.
    Anonymous commenter thinks it is preposterous for this to merit an article on a basketball website.
    What’s wrong with this picture? No wrong answers.

  • Randy Brown

    Taiwanese-Americans don’t watch Kardashian shows. I bet Lin never said anything
