After the world saw their marriage come together and fall apart, Kris Humphries said he’s come to terms with his split from Kim Kardashian and is in a better place. The New Jersey Nets forward is focusing on his game on the court rather than the one off, averaging 13.2 points per game and 10.6 rebounds per game this season. “I’m not dating anyone right now. What do they say, my girlfriend is Spalding,” he said in an interview with Access Hollywood. “I always tell people basketball is like my therapy. Some people talk to psychologists, I just need to go play basketball; that’s it.” The Humphries-Kardashian marriage, which aired as a special on E!, lasted 72 days, ended with Kardashian filing for divorce on Oct. 31. Since then, Humphries said his family and religion have been essential to him moving forward. “I’m in a great place,” he said.
