New guys participate in most lackluster introduction ever

cs intro new guys2


If you didn’t watch the introduction of the new Celtics (minus Gerald Wallace, who was running his basketball camp), you really didn’t miss a thing.  I don’t think anyone wanted to be there, especially Kris Humphries.  The highlights:

  • Kris Humphries says he and Rondo will be fine, and he’ll work to get Rondo’s respect.  He said that the incident between him and Rondo was nothing, and that it was overblown by the media.  At that point, Danny Ainge shot in with the “it might have been a flop. There’s no way Rondo could push him down that easily.”  I also think Ainge is trolling Rondo by giving Humphries Kendrick Perkins’ old number.
  • Ainge says trading Pierce and Garnett was difficult, and if it was up to him, both of their numbers would be retired.
  • When asked if he thought all of these guys would be on the opening day roster, Ainge gave a half-hearted “sure” before explaining that adjustments need to be made to the roster. 
  • Kris Humphries really, really, REALLY didn’t want to be there. 

This is something these guys have to do, but no one there really gave a crap about doing it.  Just about every answer was a canned cliché (Humphries even gave an answer where he said “yeah, all those clichés.  Just to save you guys some time).

So… welcome to Boston, fellas.  Here’s a tip… hold off on finding a place.  And if you ABSOLUTELY have to move here, find a nice apartment somewhere near the airport.

    I think Marshon wanted to be there. He even made the effort to wear some green.

  • Brick James

    “I also think Ainge is trolling Rondo by giving Humphries Kendrick Perkins’ old number.” +1

    • Pete

      Not Kris trolling Rondo?

      • frickenWaaaltah

        Yeah players get to pick their own numbers from what’s available, so if any trolling was involved it was Humphries.

  • Chulinho

    That wall in the background seemed to be more interested in this press conference than they were.

  • vitamin d

    Dammit he got perks number

  • frickenWaaaltah

    Humphries can’t be traded until Sept 12th so they had to do this I guess.

    Still, they probably shouldn’t have bothered.

  • CoachAJ

    And Kris Joseph is waived AGAIN, Tough luck for this kid and this franchise.

  • kobe_beef2424

    Humphries and Rondo will go malling together. lol

  • Raoul

    Oh stop it, Humphries always has disinterest on his face and usually can’t go further than a half smile. Look it up. You’ll see.

  • Robert

    What a joke! Way to make the Celtics a laughing stock. Humphries is Fn clown shoes!

  • CoachAJ

    No updates on Wilcox yet. Only ask because I see, Iverson and Melo and possibly Faverani going to Maine. And I don’t think we should start Olynyk at 5. Bringing him off the bench would be best in the beginning.
