Why not Humphries for Person of the Year?

The list of nominees for Time magazine’s Person of the Year is always an eclectic mix of world leaders, pop culture icons, buzzworthy names, and human rights activists. The unexpected inclusion of the 32-year-old basketball player, as a 2017 nominee has therefore sparked controversy and debate.

“What makes Humphries so important is the potential and influence he now has, rather than anything he has already done,” said a panelist who preferred to remain anonymous, adding that earlier this month, the basketball player have already been named ‘American Of The Year’ by some major American newspapers and even ‘Minneapolis Citizen Of The Year’ by the readers of a local gazette in Minneapolis (Kris Humphries' hometown).

Social Reactions to TIME’s Person of the Year

A representative for the basketball player was not immediately available for comment, but the announcement generated immediate reaction on Twitter:

“#HumphriesPOY. Logical choice though I wouldn't have made the same one.”
— @TomMiller, 23 Sep 2017
“Great choice! Long overdue recognition for his talents. #LoveKris”
— @BarbaraHeyboer, 23 Sep 2017
“Past recipients include Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler ... then why not Kris Humphries?”
— @TheClassicObserver, 23 Sep 2017

Could 2017 officially be the Year of Kris Humphries?

Still, TIME’s editors will make the final decision about who will grace the magazine’s cover as its 2017 Person of the Year.

Who do you think should be TIME’s Person of the Year for 2017?
