Seriously, you mustmustmust read this excerpt from the book "Beyond the Phog: Untold Stories from Kansas Basketball's Most Dominant Decade." Former KU player Keith Langford recounts how the team rallied against the possible recruitment of Humphries, then a brash young b-ball star on the rise: "Kris Humphries came on a visit and tried to commit. He really wanted to come here. But no one on the team liked Kris Humphries. He was arrogant. He told everyone he was going to come in and be the leading scorer as a freshman and that we'd all have to take a backseat to him. We were trying to be respectful and not say anything. But he was an absolute jerk. It was tough, because (coach) Roy (Williams) was really excited about him. Kris Humphries was a big deal. He was a one-and-done or two- and-done kind of player. Roy wanted him to commit on his visit. But we told him, 'Coach, you can't bring this guy in. You can't do it.' You'd figure Roy would say something like, 'Let's work on him,' or 'Let's give him another chance.' Instead he told Humphries, 'Sorry, but you can't come.'" Yahoo! Sports
