Kris Humphries Has
Time On His Hands

Kris Humphries may currently be locked out of his NBA job and he may have recently been served divorce papers by Kim Kardashian, but that doesn't mean he's sitting at home devouring a tub of Ben & Jerry's all alone.

While Kim Kardashian might be pretend-crying her eyes out over the demise of her 72-day marriage, Kris Humphries is turning to work to help him get through this difficult time in his life. Humphries held a press conference at New York City's Trump SoHo hotel on Friday and announced a $150,000 endorsement deal with watch company Sector.

The NBA star, who has been unattached to a team after his contract with the New Jersey Nets expired, said he was delighted to sign a lucrative deal with the brand during the press conference.

Humphries even claimed the watch company was helping him get over his divorce woes, explaining, "I'm happy to be here. As you all know, this has been a difficult time in my life and I'm so grateful [for] my friends at Sector for their unwavering support."

The out-of-work power forward claimed he was the ideal person to advertise the luxury Italian watches. He said: "It truly represents who I am both on and off the court. I've been a watch and fashion lover my entire life and a competitor and the no limit tag is really about how I approach my career."

"Most of all, they really do have great watches," he added.

Humphries is expected to rake in around $150,000 for the deal, which will no doubt come in handy as he struggles to find work during the NBA lockdown.

A portion of all Sector sales will go to Humphries' charity, which helps fights childhood obesity.

Kris have been playing Basketball for a while, so I don't think Kim have anything to do with his skills. The NBA is back on track so let us sit back and see what Kris is about on the court. What do Kim K have to do with Sector nothing!! By the way most of his sales go to his charity for obesity!!! He said nothing negative about Kim or his marriage to her, so how did he use Kim K to get this deal? Think be for you judge. Let this man have a life he is no better than Kim we all have our problems and they need to solve theirs

Kim and Kris should proof the media wrong by working on getting together. Kim is soft she will take Kris back, Kris can make it if kim is willing to leave all her glamour aside.

All the Kardashians have done is use people to get ahead, from the Mama on down!

Sad. This is the beginning of the end for all of them. BOYCOTT planned for all K shows including the premier to KK Take NY. Ratings will decline; advertisers will pull out and they'll be gone just like Kate Gosselin.

Kris was a nobody before he met Kim! He should be glad that he married her. He just used her for his own personal benifit! Eventually he will be forgotten and Kim will be on to the next one!
