Found July 16, 2013 on Celtics Life:
After the Celtics press conference yesterday, Baxter Holmes of the Boston Globe sent out some tweets revealing a few more things new head coach Brad Stevens had to say: Brad Stevens on fans who want the Celtics to tank: "I don’t think they’ll like me all that much then." — Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) July 15, 2013 Obviously this is the right thing for him to say, but from everything I've seen and heard about Stevens I have a very difficult time believing he won't try his hardest to win every single game the Celtics play (he's not another 1996 M.L. Carr).  Also along these lines: Kris Humphries said he spoke with Danny Ainge & the message was, "We’re not tanking, we’re playing hard…we're trying to make the playoffs." — Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) July 15, 2013 Again, this is exactly what Danny Ainge needs to tell Kris Humphries, and exactly what Humphries should say to a reporter as well.  In reality we have no idea if Humphries will ev...

Video: Kris Humphries & Keith Bogans talk joining the Celtics

I'm not as anti-Humphries as it appears that everyone else is. He's no star, but he can rebound, which is something the team has desperately lacked the past few years. And regarding the Rondo stuff, that's a non-story. KG got into it with Blatche and they'll be fine as teammates. So will Rondo and Humphries. Here's what Humphries had to say when asked who he is...

An updated look at the Celtics roster, and why Humphries & Wallace are unlikely to be traded (for now)

Yesterday was a busy day for the Celtics, as the team introduced three new players (Kris Humphries, Keith Bogans and MarShon Brooks), released one (Kris Joseph), and signed another (Brazilian center Vitor Faverani). With all of the action, the Celtics official roster is now taking shape. The team now has 16 players with either guaranteed or non-guaranteed deals, plus a 17th in...

New guys participate in most lackluster introduction ever

  If you didn’t watch the introduction of the new Celtics (minus Gerald Wallace, who was running his basketball camp), you really didn’t miss a thing.  I don’t think anyone wanted to be there, especially Kris Humphries.  The highlights: Kris Humphries says he and Rondo will be fine, and he’ll work to get Rondo’s respect.  He said that the incident between him and Rondo...

New Celtics look miserable at press conference (Photo)

The newest members of the Boston Celtics - Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans - were introduced to the media at a team press conference on Monday. You would think this would be an exciting day in the career of Humphries, Brooks and Bogans, but by the looks on their faces, these players may as well have been attending a funeral.

Kris Humphries, New Celtics Teammates Confident They Will Bury Hatchet With Rajon Rondo

WALTHAM, Mass. — Kris Humphries doesn’t get it, but he gets it. He knows his relationship with Rajon Rondo is a source of amusement after their physical altercation spilled into the stands during a game in November. At the same time, he knows better than to call their run-in a “fight.” Humphries is from Minnesota, after all, a region that shares some of New England’s passion...

Humphries looking forward to fresh start with Celtics

Kris Humphries has been around the NBA long enough to understand how the business of the league works. So, when Humphries sat down with Nets general manager Billy King after the Nets saw their season end at the hands of the Bulls in the first round of the playoffs, he knew there was a good chance he’d be playing elsewhere next season. “I wasn’t surprised,” Humphries said...

Celtics Introduce Three, Waive One

In what might have been the least enthusiastic press conference ever, the Celtics introduced Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks, and Kris Humphries. Gerald Wallace was mercifully spared appearing at the press conference due to his youth basketball camp. Also missing was Kris Joseph and it was announced not long after the press conference ended that Joseph had once again been waived....

Marshon Brooks, Kris Humphries, and Keith Bogans don’t look happy to be Celtics

As part of the Paul Pierce/Kevin Garnett mega-deal to the Brooklyn Nets, the Boston Celtics received Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, and Keith Bogans in return along with a slew of draft picks. Yesterday, the trio of new Celtics were introduced at a press conference and the below photo shows that they weren’t exactly excited to be there: The above photo looks a great deal different...

Ainge: We're not tanking season to get in lottery

It was the first thing Celtics general manager Danny Ainge told Keith Bogans and Kris Humphries when they arrived in Boston: We're not tanking this season. Ainge wanted to reassure the former Brooklyn Nets who were acquired in the deal that sent Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn. The deal followed the trade of coach Doc Rivers to Los Angeles, which kicked off the rebuilding...

Danny Ainge: If Nets hadn’t come along with offer, ‘we would’ve kept everybody together’

The Brooklyn Nets are set to introduce Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce at a press conference on Thursday at the Barclays Center. For the first time, Garnett and Pierce will hold up their new Nets jerseys and talk about their opportunity to compete for an NBA title in Brooklyn. On Monday, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge explained 

The Celtics Introduce New ‘Big Three’ In The Saddest Photo Ever

Everything about this photo posted by the Celtics Instagram account screams pure joy and elation! Check out the bright smiles and pure exuberance shown by the Celtics new big three: Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans. Who needs Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen?!?! Sad Celtics are very sad. [H/T Barstool] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Boston Celtics: new players don’t look thrilled to be with team

On Monday the Boston Celtics introduced new players Keith Bogans, MarShon Brooks and Kris Humphries. None of the three guys looked happy to be there. Standing holding their jerseys next to new head coach Brad Stevens and general manager Danny Ainge, the three men looked like they were about to face a firing squad. All three were acquired in the trade that sent Kevin Garnett, Jason...

Report: Pistons Interested in Rajon Rondo, But Lack of Draft Picks Hinder Any Potential Deal

Danny Ainge has made it clear that he is taking all calls from other teams about Rajon Rondo, even if he is not making any calls himself. He might want to rethink his policy after this one. The Detroit Pistons reportedly are interested in Rondo, but their trade offer is somewhat laughable. The Pistons, who recently signed Rondo’s buddy Josh Smith, would like to send third-year...

Celtics’ Roster Overhaul Isn’t Finished Yet, As Team Still Has Moves to Make

WALTHAM, Mass. – In a summer that has brought a whirlwind of emotions to Celtics players, coaches, and fans alike, there is one overwhelming feeling that sits in the back of everyone’s head when beginning to think about the future of Boston’s historic franchise: uncertainty. The Celtics held a press conference Monday to formally introduce Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and...
