It’s always a tough transition when going from a team with championship aspirations to a team in rebuild mode. This is the story of Kris Humphries after being dealt from Brooklyn to Boston. Humphries doesn’t sound too thrilled about the situation.
“Last year was a tough situation, up and down. For whatever reason, sometimes things just don’t work out,” Humphries said. “No real fingers to point; I’m just in a different situation now. I’m motivated and I’m looking to make the most out of it. It’s funny, of all the places I would end up, I never thought I would play in Boston, but just from being around those guys, it should be exciting. We’re out to try to prove that we’re a team that can compete every night, and whenever people sort of write you off, it’s a lot of motivation.
“I’m not looking to be a part of a tanking situation. I know that [president of basketball operations] Danny Ainge has said that they’re not looking to tank, and I’m sure Brad Stevens coming in is defin

Kris Humphries has been called a lot of things by Celtics fans, both before and after his trade to the Cs on July 12th. And most of them have not been good.
After all, he is the man who got into a fight with Rajon Rondo and then complained about the scratch marks afterwards. He's also the dude who married Kim Kardashian. Which means you need to question every decision he makes...
Kris Humphries has spent the summer working on his game and says he is ready "to compete for a big role" on his new team, the Boston Celtics.
Humphries has heard talk that the Celtics are trying to tank next season, but he does not want to be part of that situation and does not believe that is where Boston is headed.

Tim MacLean (@TimMacLean_) Predicting what the 2013-14 campaign has in store for Rajon Rondo is a bit tricky. At this point in the offseason we still aren’t sure when he’ll be ready to suit up and, as recent as today, the Celtics still have “no timetable” for his return. But given the state of this team, Rondo should be in no rush to get back on the floor with his teammates...
According to Baxter Holmes of the Boston Globe, Boston Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens said today that there is no timetable set for when Rajon Rondo might return to action. As you know, Rondo tore/ruptured his ACL back in late January of this year during a regular season bout with the Atlanta Hawks. The mercurial point guard then went on to have surgery in early February and,...
I suggest you imagine the trailer voice guy reading the title, it becomes much scarier that way.
Oh, and before it's too late, you can un-throw up in your mouth because this is not a quote from Brad Stevens or any other Celtic. It's directly from the invincible Crawford himself.

Rajon Rondo has not had a setback in his recovery from a torn ACL, but it is looking more and more likely that the All-Star guard will miss all of the Boston Celtics' preseason games as well as the start of the regular season, according to a report.
Rondo was in Boston last week and did on court work with Brad Stevens.
"He's obviously limited in what he can do on the...
Brothers? Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries get mistaken for each other all of the time
I wonder what Blake Griffin secretly thinks when someone calls him Kris Humphries? Of course Griffin would never openly admit to what he is thinking when called “Kris Humphries,” but one could assume he probably isn’t too thrilled with it. Humphries on the other hand, probably loves it.
Imagine having a 3 year contract for $300,000 in 1978 from the Celtics. Imagine being at their summer camp in August and then just disappearing. It sounds like a weird dream or a tale based on the Bermuda Triangle (or something involving a guy from WTHHT). But it's totally real and totally happened to Joe Pace.
To quote the famous Bob Ryan "they said he had possessed...
Plantar fasciitis forced Kelly Olynyk to skip training with the Canadian national team this summer, but the rookie said on Friday that he is progressing.
"It's getting a lot better," said Olynyk. "Obviously, we’re still taking precautionary measures to make sure I’m ready to go for training camp; hopefully it doesn’t linger throughout the year." Pressed...
Boston Celtics guard Jordan Crawford is known for a nice dunk on LeBron James during a summer camp run, and for getting ethered by La La Anthony after a Knicks vs Celtics game.
Crawford for the little he’s done in the NBA, still has some talent.
Even with the Celtics being Rajon Rondo’s team, the fourth year guard out of Xavier believes that he’s looked at as a leader by some...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Rivers acknowledged that the 2011 Kendrick Perkins-Jeff Green trade was a mistake that ultimately hurt Garnett.
“I think so,” reflected Rivers, “because we needed the toughness. The one thing we did by...
Rajon Rondo is expected to leave his endorsement deal with Nike for Anta.
Anta is a Chinese shoe company that signed Kevin Garnett a few years ago.
Rondo is rehabbing from a torn ACL.
When it went down Celtics fans were up in arms — Boston traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City mainly for Jeff Green. Danny Ainge’s name suddenly came with a new adjective for Boston fans and it’s one we can’t repeat here.
Since then Boston has defended the trade and as Perkins’ production has slipped some of the anger dissipated.
Doc Rivers now admits it was a mistake...
There has been a lot of speculation on what kind of rotation
the Celtics will have this year. I think
the best answer is that they will go round and round. By that I mean that I think the question is
incomplete. The pertinent omission is
When? I suspect that the rotation in the
first game of each month will not likely be the same rotation as used in the
first game of the...
