Kris Humphries - why no respect?


Kris Humphries is by far the biggest surprise of the year for the Nets. Yet, it seems everyone wants to write off this year as an anomaly. The consensus seems to be "this is a contract year and there is a concern that his numbers go down once he signs that big contract". I would argue otherwise. Humphries has always been a very good rebounder. His per 36 minutes rebounding for his career has always been solid.

Thus, I don't think his rebounds would necessarily go down after he signs a big contract. What you may find even more surprising is that his shot-blocking is right around what he is doing now. He's also had some surprisingly good games defensively against some top PFs like Zach Randolph and Blake Griffin. This is because he is nimble and athletic for his size.

That being said, due to his limited offense, he does not deserve a max contract. In fact, giving him an Outlaw deal is probably as far as I would go. However, I would not look to replace him with another starter. We probably should be looking at another big with size to backup the 4 or 5 spot ... DeAndre Jordan comes to mind.
