Writing or talking about Kris Humphries as a member of the Boston Celtics still makes some uneasy and yet it seems unavoidable to study the basketball biography of the big man coming from Minnesota.
Yes, we are going to talk about basketball and Humphries. I am not interested by any of the media exposure the guy has got himself into in the recent years. Heck, you could even get to justify that when you play for small markets in Utah and Toronto and you are suddenly a member of the mighty New Jersey Nets after a brief stint in Dallas.
At first, Humphries found fame through sports. As a child he swam his way into stardom by breaking the US national record for the 50-meter freestyle for 10 and under boys. It was sports, and only everything related to it that helped build Kris Humphries the player. His father was a football player at the University of Minnesota, and Kris tried with football, swimming and later basketball to follow his dreams to become a professional athlete. Soon he b...

According to a report by CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely, the Boston Celtics are highly interested in sending Jordan Crawford on his way. Crawford was acquired by the Celtics just prior to last year's trade deadline. At that point, Rajon Rondo had already torn his ACL and Boston was looking for absolutely anything that could even resemble an offensive presence. Having averaged...
Ah..the dog days of summer. That magical time of year when Celtics stories and/or news are few & far between. Well thank goodness for social media-Weibo to be specific. That’s where I found this photo of someone named Brad Partyka & our own Rajon Rondo.
Seems #9 is enjoying some time in the Cayman Islands, and this lucky fan got to snap a pic with him. It definitely appears...
Rajon Rondo is known for his incredible passing skills. During the 2012-2013 season, Rondo had an amazing streak of 37 games with 10 or more assists, which got broken after he was ejected after his infamous fight with Kris Humphries.
NBAClutchTime on YouTube posted a nearly ten minute long compilation of Rondo's passing highlights from last season (which I believe was originally...
MarShon Brooks can flat-out score. The Celtics knew that when they drafted him in the first round of the 2011 NBA draft. They knew it when they immediately traded him for JaJuan Johnson and a second-round pick. And they still know it, obviously, after trading back for him as part of the blockbuster deal with the Nets earlier this month.
After Brooks had been officially introduced...
Celtics rookie big man and Summer League phenom Kelly Olynyk will not play for Team Canada in the upcoming FIBA Americas Championships because of plantar fasciitis, reports Toronto Raptors radio analyst Eric Smith.
Plantar fasciitis – inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot – can be a ***** of an injury for NBA big men.
Here’s hoping Olynyk is healed and...
The first week of many to come with no player press conferences, no major moves, no nothing! Of course, that didn't stop us from bringing you the latest and greatest Celtics content! We got Larry Bird being a bad ass, Rajon Rondo and a max contract, but if there's only one thing you read of the below, we all know it's going to be about Jack "The Shot" Foley...
A.B. ESPN Boston columnist, (and one of my favorite writers) Jackie MacMullan, wrote an awesome tribute yesterday remembering the life of Boston Celtics star, Reggie Lewis, who died during practice at the age of 27.
The entire article is worth reading, but here are some of the highlights:
By the time [Lewis] died, he was one of six players who, from 1988-93, posted at least 7,500...
Imagine your favorite basketball player is Rajon Rondo. You love absolutely everything about him from the thread-the-needle passes to the fact that his picture proudly graces the top of Celticslife (along with Larry Bird). You're young and impressionable and Rajon can't do any wrong. Now imagine, if on your birthday of all days, he suddenly dies. How crushed would...
Most NBA draft picks spend the summer before their rookie year fighting to earn a roster spot on their respective teams, and while second-round pick Colton Iverson may have spent the past few months doing so, he’s not waiting around to learn of his fate.
Iverson, who was drafted 53rd overall by the Boston Celtics in the 2013 NBA draft, has agreed to sign a two-year contract with...
Phil Pressey has an impressive college resume, an NBA bloodline and now he’s a Celtic.
The Boston Celtics made two new additions to their team, signing free-agent deals with Phil Pressey and Vitor Faverani. Both are undrafted rookies, and as such, they are far from the dominant news in the NBA offseason. But on a rebuilding team, you don’t know where your next gem(s) is going...
Colton Iverson has signed a two-year contract with Turkish club Besitkas.
Iverson was drafted by the Boston Celtics with the 53d pick of last month’s draft.
The Celtics still own the rights to Iverson, who averaged 5 points and 5.4 rebounds in five games at the Las Vegas summer league.
On Sunday, July 28, CSNNE will air a documentary on the life of Reggie Lewis. For every fan that remembers the heartbreak of losing Reggie and for the fans who have just read about it, this will be a must watch. It's hard to believe that a generation of Celtics fans don't remember Reggie or the heartbreak of hearing the news that he died much too young. It was 20 years...
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.
The Boston Celtics have hired former Butler guard Ronald Nored in a player development role, a source told ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman.
The 23-year-old Nored, a guard on Butler’s two Final Four teams coached...

Nored will have a role with the Celtics' D-League team.
On the verge of having Larry Bird pass him the torch to become the next leader of the Celtics, Reggie Lewis’s career and his life came to a tragic and abrupt end. In an article for espn.com, Jackie MacMullan discusses a game during the 1991 season, where Lewis went head-to-head with Michael Jordan and got the better of the games greatest player. Lewis blocked Jordan four times...
