Thunder fan learns important lesson: Kris Humphries gets very sweaty during games (VIDEO)

Ball Don't Lie

For a while now, I have believed that Kris Humphries' sweat game is underrated. Whenever the topic of the sweatiest players in the NBA comes up (and it comes up kind of a lot, which seems weird but also makes sense considering how much exposed skin the players have and how little clothing they wear), there are certain names that are always bandied about — Kevin Garnett and Lamar Odom are two fan favorites, and Nick Collison has been picked by multiple players. But the Brooklyn Nets power forward is never one of them, despite the fact that he often seems to develop a slick, shiny coating soon after he sets foot on the court.

It's not like that's not understandable; after all, most of Humphries' responsibilities on the court include running and jumping after rebounds, hustling to set screens and coming into frequent, aggressive contact with other large, sweaty dudes. Still, though, it's felt to me like NBA fans writ large have been giving Hump short shrift in the "who's the most gross" department (on the court, at least).

[Also: Derrick Favors says Kevin Love is overrated]

Well, after reaching out for a brush with athletic/tabloid stardom in the closing minutes of the Nets' big road win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night and coming up with a hand full of ugh, that's not a mistake that this female Thunder supporter will make any time soon. It's a shame that she had to learn to respect his sheen the hard way, but sometimes experience is the best teacher.

Humphries finished with 11 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 25-plus minutes before leaving late in the fourth after "badly" spraining his left ankle. Depending on how he bounces back on Thursday, he could miss the Nets' Friday night contest against the Washington Wizards; if nothing else, that might present a non-drenched target for potential Verizon Center arm-touchers.

One final note: Not as gross as putting LeBron James' headband on after he played 44 minutes in an NBA Finals game. Y'know, just for the record.
