Who Is The Most Disliked Player In The NBA?
Who Is The Most Disliked Player In The NBA? The answer may surprise you. A survey conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research that appeared on Forbes.com gave us the answer. And the answer is....Kris Humphries.
That's right, a mediocre New Jersey Nets power forward is more disliked than LeBron James or Kobe Bryant. The reason is fairly obvious. Humphries is better known as Kim Kardashian's ex-husband. Their 72 day marriage filled a plethora of tabloids.
Last year, LeBron James won the vote in a landslide. Keep in mind, that was coming on the heels of "The Decision." My guess is, many felt that "King James" would reign supreme once again. Perhaps the only thing more dispised by sports fans than "the decision," is the Kardashians. Now that I think about it, Humphries' haters have one big thing in common with him. They both are sick of keeping up with the Kardashians. After all, all Humphries wants for Christmas is an annulment.
Lamar Odom, husband to Khloe Kardashian, finished in the top 10 as well.
