Kris Humphries signed a one-year contract worth $4 million with the Atlanta Hawks earlier this summer, setting him up for a 13th NBA season this winter. But had his pesky $50 million basketball career not gotten in the way, the former Hopkins High School and Gophers men's basketball player might have been in a pool this summer in Rio.
At age 10, Humphries was the best swimmer in the country in six different events, in an age group that included some of the best swimmers of all time.
Humphries beat the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps, in the 50-meter butterfly and the 100-meter freestyle in 1995, NBA.com noted. Among the other swimmers Humphries blew away at age 10 were 12-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte and Olympic medalist and world champion Milorad Cavic.
"I was so good at a young age that I got a little burnt out," Humphries told People Magazine in 2003.
