Due to his subtlety in the NBA, many people were wondering how Kris Humphries paid for such an expensive ring. Well, it might have cost him almost his whole year’s salary, but Kris Humphries brought in $2.9 million dollars last year. 

According to the New York Post, Kris Humphries has brought in an estimated $16 million in his seven year NBA career. Forbes estimates that his fiance’ Kim Kardashian brought in $12 million last year, which means Kim almost trumps Kris’ salary in just one year, versus what it took him 4 years to make. 

So who is Kris Humphries? Well, he was born February 6, 1985 in Chaska, Minnesota. His parents are Debra and William Humphries. His father used to play football for the University Of Minnesota. Kris Humphries has two sisters, Krystal and Kaela.

Kris Humphries was drafted to the NBA in 2004 by the Utah Jazz. Kris was drafted in the first round, but he was 14th pick overall. Kris has bounced around in the NBA a little bit. He played for the Utah Jazz for two years, then he was traded to the Toronto Raptors in 2006.

Kris didn’t receive too much playing time in Toronto, so he was eventually traded again to the Dallas Mavericks in 2009. Only staying on the team for a year, Kris made his way to New Jersey, where he currently plays.
