Found July 15, 2013 on Celtics Life:
While covering the Las Vegas Summer League, CSNNE's Jessica Camerato caught up with New Orleans Pelicans second year guard Austin Rivers, who's averaging 19.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 3 assists through two games.  Rivers had this to say about his father's departure from Boston: Austin Rivers on Doc: "It was so tough for him to leave (the Celtics). It made him teary-eyed when he was talking about it with the family." — Jessica Camerato (@JCameratoNBA) July 15, 2013 Regardless of whether or not you think Doc did the Celtics wrong, it should come as no surprise that it was a very difficult and emotional decision for him to make.  Austin's comments are also a lot less inflammatory than what his big brother Jeremiah had to say in defense of their dad.

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...

Great video just came my way of a little kid in Houston responding to Shaquille O’Neal’s diss of Houston. The local ABC affiliate has footage of a VERY VERY animated kid.
