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.
Overall, Humphries’ focus this summer was to go above and beyond his usual workout routine, especially after his inconsistent season in Brooklyn and finding out he’d have a fresh start in Boston. Teaming up with Rajon Rondo also piqued his interest.
“I didn’t know if I was going to end up staying [in Brooklyn] or not, or what the deal was,” he said. “It was a little bit of a surprise, but at the same time, you get a chance to play with a guy like Rondo, who won a championship and has been an All-Star and done all those things. I’m excited because he’s a guy that plays at a high pace the whole game. He’s a great passer, whether it’s in transition or the half-court. I’m hoping that he gets back as soon as possible.
“I talked to coach [Brad] Stevens a lot about playing at an up-tempo pace — get out there and run.

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo will likely miss all of the preseason as well as some regular season games, according to CSNNE.com. Rondo suffered a torn right ACL on Jan. 25. The knee was surgically repaired

Great message from Brad Stevens to the kids (adults could heed his advice as well):
"You can never go wrong by doing right. You can never go wrong by treating somebody well. You can never go wrong by being a good person."
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.

The Boston Globe snuck in this tidbit at the end of one of their columns this weekend:
Rajon Rondo has rehabilitated quietly from his torn right anterior cruciate ligament but could make headlines off the court by potentially changing shoe companies from Nike to Anta the Chinese company that nabbed former Celtic Kevin Garnett a few years ago.

Once again, the Celtics will enter a season with health-related concerns. This time, though, those concerns do not come with the same lofty payoff if everything goes right.
Instead of wondering if Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and the other veterans can stay healthy for a possible title run, the Celtics could be waiting to see how Rajon Rondo‘s surgically repaired right knee holds...
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.
"I'm not looking to be a part of a tanking situation...
To be clear, there’s still no timetable for the return of Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. However, the news of late hasn’t been good. That includes A. Sherrod Blakely’s Sunday report in which the CSN New England writer listed Rondo as unlikely to be available for the start of the regular season.This shouldn’t be extremely surprising considering Rondo’s initial...
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...
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...
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...
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.

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.
Kris Humphries has gotten an inordinate amount of screen time in the past couple of years. Most forwards who have averaged 6.6 points and 5.5 rebounds per game over the course of their nine-year careers don’t grace Page Six of the New York Post on a regular basis.
Most NBA forwards aren’t Kim Kardashian‘s ex-husband, of course.
Still, many times when Humphries is recognized...
