Kris Humphries is true to the adage, Hoops before Hoes … and that”s precisely why he was a no-show at Kim Kardashian“s deposition.

You”ll recall … Kris” lawyer, Lee Hutton, talked about Kris” constitutional right to look Kim in the eyes as she testified under oath about their short-lived marriage.

So why, you ask, did Kris miss that golden opportunity Sources close to the BBaller tell our sources … Kris had practice and travel obligations Tuesday, as Kim sat for her marathon, 9-hour depo. He had just finished a game Monday night in Michigan, had practice Tuesday and was traveling later that day to Dallas for a Wednesday game.

We”re told Kris is adamant about one thing — attending the May 6 trial, even if it conflicts with the playoffs. So hoes don”t always come in second.
