Brooklyn Nets NBA Art Basketball Painting

Brooklyn Nets (Maybe Kris Humphries )

A number of years ago when the NBA Brooklyn Nets were playing under the name of the New Jersey Nets I had painted a group of basketball and hockey paintings for the Prudential Sports Arena in New Jersey.  I did three basketball paintings for them.

I think the painting is of Kris Humphries when he played for the New Jersey Nets.  I am not absolutely sure.  What do you think?  Certainly there is enough photos of Kris to make the comparison – on and off the court.   Humphries later  signed with the Atlanta Hawks.

Kris Humphries Odd History

Humphries has, in my opinion kind of an odd history with his marriage to reality TV personality Kim Kardashian.  It was turned into a Ringling Bros. circus in a two-part TV special showing the preparations  (Just what I wanted to see on TV)  – and the wedding itself aired on E network  (Something else I did not want to miss  Unfortunately my Tivo was nor working that day)  in what the Washington Post called a “media blitz” related to the wedding. The marriage didn’t last long, 72 days – half a basketball season. Humphries requested an annulment on the grounds of fraud or a decree of legal separation rather than Kardashian’s requested divorce.  A lot of the news outlets thought (along with half the sports world) Kardashian’s marriage to Humphries was a publicity stunt for financial gain orchestrated by E! Entertainment and Kris and Kim Kardashian to promote the Kardashian family’s brand and their television ventures.  (Well, it worked)  Humphries and Kardashian’s divorce was finalized on June 3, 2013.

Someone recently saw the NHL Red Devils  paintings at the arena but I have no idea if the basketball paintings were moved to the new Barclays Stadium in Brooklyn where the Brooklyn Nets now play.  If anyone has seen the paintings I would appreciate any information about them
