Kris Humphries signed a reported $24 million contract with the Brooklyn Nets, and it has him feeling pretty cocky.
The NBA player, who is currently in the middle of a messy divorce from Kim Kardashian, took aim at his soon-to-be ex's current beau -- Kanye West.
After signing with the team, who will assume their new home at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, this fall, Humphries took to Twitter to announce his good news and took a shot at West:
I'm up at Brooklyn!@S_C_"lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team" lol!

Humphries is, of course, making reference to one of West's lyrics from the song "Way Too Cold" (originally released as "Theraflu"), in which West refers to his romance with Kardashian and threatens to use his close friendship with Nets co-owner Jay-Z to have Humphries dropped from the team:
"And I’ll admit, I had fell in love with Kim/Around the same time she had fell in love with him/ Well that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thang/ Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team."
So far West, who is often very vocal on Twitter, hasn't responded to the dig.
