To start the 2010-11 season, the relatively unknown Kris Humphries played his role off the bench, doing anything he could to get noticed.
Humphries ended the season fifth in the league in rebounds per game, earning consideration for Most Improved Player. He even found billboards advertising him as "The Incredible Hump."
Oh, and he is engaged to Kim Kardashian.
There is no doubt Humphries' career is on the rise, and the Nets need to lock him up for the next few years as they rebuild this team.
