Anyone know where I can get a quick Tetanus shot in Boston?http://t.co/mEOYU6gCabout 8 hours ago via UberSocial for iPhoneReplyRetweetFavorite@KrisHumphriesKris HumphriesIf I were 6-foot-9 and built of granite, I’d probably be a little less inquired to ask where I could get a tetanus shot after getting big-boyed by a 6-foot-1 point guard. But maybe that’s just me.Jason Terry played with Humphries (25 games with the Dallas Mavericks in 2009-10 — I had to check myself) and decided to piss off his former teammate in favor of defending his current ones. (ESPN Boston)“That was unnecessary,” Terry said. “Some guys are tough. Some guys pretend to be. [Humphries is] one of those that pretends to be. I played with him. Maybe that’s the role [Nets head coach] Avery [Johnson] wants him to have, but he could leave that to somebody else.”Asked to elaborate on what kind of player Humphries is, Terry said: “Soft.”Terry maintained that stance, even when informed that Celtics head coach Doc Rivers had labeled Boston as a soft team following the loss.“Well, Humphries might as well come play with us then, if that’s the case,” said Terry.“Not at all. Again, we’ve got each other’s backs in this locker room, regardless of what it may look like, or what people say or assume — that soft thing,” Terry said. “That word is always thrown around, but, to a man, I believe we’re very tough individuals. But, with Rondo coming in, taking it up for KG, that just shows you. That’s your point guard taking it up for your big man, so that shows you his toughness.”I know Rondo losing his cool was stupid and might result in a suspension. I know Humphries didn’t even foul KG that hard to begin with, and everything that followed was just one big overreaction. I’m rational about this. Losing Rondo for more than a game or two could really hurt, especially considering A) the Celtics don’t have a backup point guard and B) they’re currently floundering in seventh place in the Eastern Conference at 8-7, percentage points behind the Milwaukee Bucks.But, call me crazy, I love that Rondo had KG’s back. I love that Terry came to their defense afterward. I love KG saying, “You have to protect each other, and we consider ourselves family around here, and that’s just the way it is.”And yes, I also love Doc calling his team “soft” afterwards and saying no amount of fighting could change that. They are soft right now. They have far too many defensive breakdowns and allow far too many layups. Now, they need to change all that. Follow Rondo’s lead. Not to become fighters, but to always come to their teammates’ support, whether a teammate needs someone to throw a few punches or to slide over to take a charge from the help side.
