I didn’t believe this.

But doing a little research it is true, Humphries was a dominant swimmer at the age of 10 and even beat Michael Phelps a few times.

Humphries, the starting power forward for the Nets, was a standout swimmer when he was young, but told in a wide-ranging interview: “I was so good at a young age [he outraced Phelps when he was 10 years old] that I got a little burnt out.

“I also grew up in the Michael Jordan era … for me, I watched [basketball] and saw it as a challenge. It’s hard to stay focused on something when you have a ton of success at such a young age, so I picked up basketball a little later and rolled with that.”

Who knows what would have happened if Humphries would have focused on Swimming as oppose to getting involved with Basketball.  He has done well in the NBA and to be honest no one would have known this interesting fact if he wasn’t Keeping up with the Kardashians for awhile.

So many layers to THE HUMP.

By the way NBC is just showing on tape delay Kim Kardashian’s sex tape, Twitter reported it was awful 5 years ago.
