(CRACK IS, indeed, WACK)

Averaging around eight points per game for one of the NBA’s most anonymous teams, Humphries might be the last guy in organized sports who you would think would need a high profile Hollywood publicist.

So why then did he recently hire Liza Anderson, who also reps Eva Longoria, to handle his public relations affairs?

From the NEW YORK POST

New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries is doing the right thing keeping up with Kim Kardashian.

He’s hired a personal publicist to handle inquiries into his love life now that he’s dating the curvy reality star.

Humphries tapped Eva Longoria’s rep, Liza Anderson.

A source told us, “Kim is a master at her own publicity. Kris’ team wanted to make sure they get his message out. It was a decision by his management team.”

Another source told us Humphries and Kardashian are working out plans to spend the holidays together around his team schedule. Anderson confirmed she’s working with Humphries.

The move immediately paid off handsomely for Humphries , witness that lovely piece you enjoyed in People Magazine this week titled, “Five Things to Know About Kim Kardashian’s New Beau Kris Humphries.
