You are not a fan of Kris Humphries. We get it, and it’s OK. Exactly why Humphries has become the target of such derision is a little foggy. All he did was marry an attractive, rich girl who happened to have TV show. Some might call that attention-seeking. Others might call it smart. Either way, that phase of Humphries’ life is over now. He is a member of the Boston Celtics, even if he is not a particularly popular one. Almost as soon as news of trade that would eventually send Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to Brooklyn leaked out on the night of the NBA draft, Celtics fans began clamoring on social media for their team to get rid of Humphries as soon as possible. Humphries did nothing for his popularity in Boston when he got into a skirmish with Rajon Rondo last season, although he probably got the worst of it when Rondo shoved him into the crowd. If Humphries never plays a game in green, a sizable portion of the fan base will not shed a tear.

Dionte Christmas back in the NBA?

Our old friend Dionte Christmas has a chance to make a roster spot this up and coming season. I wish it was with the Celtics.

I wanted us to keep him, but with the Courtney Lee trade, we ended up releasing...

Nobody was happier than Brad Stevens was when Keith Bogans, minutes after officially being introduced as a member of the Boston Celtics, said his main priority for the coming season was to be an extension of his head coach. Stevens, heading into his first year on Boston’s bench, needs all the support he can get in what seems likely to be a challenging season. Whether Bogans actually...

Celtics expect Rajon Rondo back by start of season

As the Boston Celtics look to the next stage of their franchise history, Rajon Rondo is the lone remaining superstar on a team that previously included the likes of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Doc Rivers.

NBA scouts analyze Vitor Faverani's game, as well as his amazing nickname

When the Celtics were first linked to Brazilian big man Vitor Faverani a few weeks ago, my first response was, "Who?" Admittedly I do not know a ton about the European leagues, following only those who the mainstream media talk about as potential NBA first round picks, but usually I'll at least recognize the name. That wasn't the case with Faverani. After digging...

The Celtics did not reveal contract terms, although earlier reports had Faverani at three years, $6 million and Pressey with a multi-year deal. The 6-foot-11 Faverani, 25, played in 23 games for Valencia Basket of the Spanish ACB last...

Ainge: Our Big 3 Was Different from Red's

Having long lamented Larry Bird's and Kevin McHale's injury-riddled twilight years, Danny Ainge traded Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce when they still had (some) value. However, since he didn't trade KG or Pierce when they would have demanded serious packages, and he let Ray Allen walk for nothing, Ainge, like Red Auerbach, still might have made his move too late. Defending...
