Hump hears boos in D.C. too

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- Apparently, Washington Wizards fans are keeping up with the Kardashians. Otherwise, why would they have booed Kris Humphries so vociferously?

Nets forward Humphries -- whose short-lived marriage to Kim Kardashian was chronicled on reality TV -- heard the loudest jeers during the introductions of the starting lineups for New Jersey's season-opening game at the Wizards on Monday night.

Once the game began, Humphries also heard it from the crowd whenever he touched the ball. The booing reached a crescendo when he was about to attempt a free throw in the first quarter, then turned to cheers when his shot clanged off the front of the rim.

Humphries and Kardashian split up 72 days after their wedding, which was shown on television.
