Nets' Humphries: Barclays better than MSG

Chris Trotman

Kris Humphries thinks Barclays Center is a "billion equals better" than Madison Square Garden.

Brooklyn Nets power forward Kris Humphries added a new chapter in the Nets-New York Knicks rivalry by saying Barclays Arena, where the Nets play, and Madison Square Garden can't be compared, according to ESPN.

"I don't think you can really compare the arenas. This is on another level. Barclays is better than MSG," Humphries told Michelle Steele.

"... I don't need to explain it. It's better. Boom. ... Billion equals better."

Humphries heard a chorus of boos when he played at the Garden last year, which could be the reason he prefers Barclays over the renovated arena.

Humphries, 27, had his best season as a pro last year. In his third year with the Nets, Humphries averaged 13.8 points and 11 rebounds per game. He also saw 34.9 minutes per game, the highest number of his career.

The former first-round pick and the Nets will begin their first season in Brooklyn this year.

The Nets are coming off a 22-44 season. They finished fifth in the Atlantic Division in their second season under coach Avery Johnson.

Brooklyn hosts the Knicks on Wednesday night in the final preseason game. Then, eight days later, the Nets host the Knicks again in the season opener.
