NBA star Kris Humphries in Rochester


ROCHESTER (KTTC) -- He's a familiar face on the basketball court, as well as in the realm of reality television, but on Friday Kris Humphries spent the day with kids at the Rochester Area Family YMCA for a basketball camp.

Humphries is a Minnesota native who plays for the Brooklyn Nets.

The NBA player started The Kris Humphries Foundation in 2007 after an experience with children who were unable to participate in physical activities due to their weight.

At the camp, 70 kids worked on their basketball skills but also followed this year's theme: RESPECT.

It includes the importance of healthy living.

Humphries remembers having mentors that kept him motivated both on and off the court.

"I was fortunate because I had mentors who used to bring me to the gym when I was young and I know with the Y these kids have a lot of resources... so it's pretty cool and I like spending time here," Humphries said.

As a kid, Humphries used to come to the Med City for swim meets.
