*It’s about to go down between the Nets and the Knicks, so to speak.

While the teams’ rivalry is already strong, things are heating up as players are taking personal jabs at one another.

Kris Humphries tweeted some hot garbage against his opponent after the Nets defeated the Knicks Monday night 88-85.

“Big game tonight! The Garden got really quiet on the way out!”

Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith (pictured above) couldn’t let it go and responded with: “Wasn’t quiet when Kanye tore it down last month!”

Wait, what?

The Tweet attack got ignorantly personal, as it appears Smith was referring to Humphries estranged wife Kim Kardashian.

Yes, the socialite is still technically married to him, however the couple is enduring a long, drawn out divorce scenario.

Now Kim is preggers by new love Kanye West.

But Humphries insists that the 72-day marriage was staged and has allegedly demanded Kim make a public apology. He was offered $7 million to keep quiet about it, supposedly.
