Kris Humphries

  1. Apparently fans confuse Blake Griffin, Kris Humphries all the time

    Sep 13, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Take Flight Media Event 2013

    Look at those images. Do Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries look alike to you? They have roughly the same build, Griffin is an inch taller and has 15 pounds or so on Humphries, but to the average person they are both just very tall, big men. They also are both recognizable in popular culture —…

  2. Celtics reportedly want to trade bad contracts they got from Nets. Any Takers?

    Jul 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    As much as landing Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett  legitimized the Nets as a team to be reckoned with, their trade with the Celtics was almost as important for the fact they dumped the two worst contracts on their roster — Kris Humphries (one year, $12 million) and the awful Gerald Wallace deal (three years,…

  3. Nets, Celtics officially complete trade sending Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jul 12, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    The Nets and Celtics have officially completed their blockbuster trade that sends Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn.

  5. Celtics GM Danny Ainge: “We are not tanking”

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    Define tanking. How you choose to do that will determine if you think the Boston Celtics are tanking. They certainly are rebuilding after they shipped out Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn for a package of three first round picks, the talented young MarShon Brooks, and the anchor contracts of Kris Humphries (one year,…

  6. Report: Celtics to receive MarShon Brooks in deal with Nets, Reggie Evans stays in Brooklyn

    Jun 28, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    One of the criticisms of the Celtics in their deal that will send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets was that aside from the future first round picks, there wasn’t a lot of young talent immediately coming back in return. Boston was set to receive Gerald Wallace (with three years and over $30…

  7. Are the Brooklyn Nets contenders now? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

    Former NBA basketball player Kidd poses for photographers with Brooklyn Nets player Williams at a news conference in Brooklyn

    Thanks to a blockbuster trade with Boston, next season the Brooklyn Nets will start Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. They will bring Jason Terry off the bench. They will start five former All-Stars and bring a former Sixth Man of the Year off the bench. So can we say…

  8. Kevin Garnett agrees to deal that will send him and Paul Pierce to the Nets

    Jun 28, 2013, 2:13 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    When the initial shock wore off after hearing the beginnings of a deal between the Celtics and Nets that would land both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in Brooklyn, the one thing that could prevent it all from happening immediately came into focus. Garnett is one of a very few players in the league with…

  9. Report: Garnett signs off on trade that would send him, Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jun 27, 2013, 10:56 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    UPDATE #2 10:56 PM: Kevin Garnett will agree to waive his no-trade clause, clearing a major hurdle for the deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. That makes this deal far more likely. It is not finalized yet, and can’t be officially executed until July 10, but the teams are working to get the…

  11. Carlesimo reiterates what we all know: The Nets aren’t winning a title

    May 24, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Brooklyn Nets

    Veteran coach P.J. Carlesimo has landed on his feet. After the Brooklyn Nets let him walk when the season ended he strolled over to ESPN and has landed a job as an analyst (essentially taking the Flip Saunders job). Carlesimo held a conference call on Thursday to talk all things NBA, but much of the…

  12. The coach is gone, now what moves must Nets make this offseason?

    May 8, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Evans, Lopez and Williams wait during time out in their game with Chicago Bulls in the fourth quarter of Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    P.J. Carlesimo wasn’t really the problem in Brooklyn. But he wasn’t really the answer, either. Brooklyn goes into the summer looking for a new coach and that hire is huge because it’s questionable how much the roster can be changed from last season’s 49-win, fourth in the East squad. That’s the challenge for the Nets…

  13. Nate Robinson crosses up Kris Humphries. Wickedly. (VIDEO)

    May 3, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Six

    Kris Humphries had to know he was in trouble when getting back in transition he did the right thing — stop the ball — but that meant he had to cover Nate Robinson on the perimeter. But Nate crossed Humphries up something serious with a little hesitation crossover. That is wicked. Especially considering Nate had…

    Chicago Bulls' Gibson reacts to a referee's call during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Chicago

    This dunk from Taj Gibson during the first quarter of Game 3 between the Bulls and the Nets was pretty spectacular, considering where he took off and the force with which he threw it down. The fact that Kris Humphries decided to jump to try to contest just made it that much more exciting. [via…

    Apr 22, 2013, 11:49 PM EDT

    BKN-BULLS-NETS

    Joakim Noah pushed Kris Humphries in the back, positioned himself between Humphries and C.J. Watson for a rebound and lunged out of bounds to save the ball as it took a sharp carom across the baseline. Noah’s heave was headed out of bounds on the sideline, but Kirk Hinrich jumped to save the ball, making…

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Andrew Bynum’s knees were not right all season, he will not play one minute of one game. So how much are teams willing to gamble that this solved the problem? First things first, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports Radio tweets that Bynum’s knee surgery to clean up everything following his previous surgery…

    Brooklyn Nets' Kris Humphries puts a shot up over Chicago Bulls' Carlos Boozer during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    P.J. Carlesimo realizes that the Nets are in danger of being a one-and-done playoff team and that he doesn’t have a lot of weapons to turn to that can change that around. His hands are pretty tied. So he’s going to take one more look at what he’s already got. Carlesimo tried heavy doses of…

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Tuesday night will be cathartic for some Magic fans — Dwight Howard returns to Orlando and they will get to lustily boo the guy who left them. The guy they feel screwed them and the franchise over. Magic fans can sing “Forget You” at the top of their lungs. They can boo the Lakers as…

  22. Coach tells Kris Humphries he is out of Nets rotation

    Mar 6, 2013, 3:20 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    Just in case you wondered why the Nets had trouble trading Kris Humphries and his $12 million contract at the deadline…. Humphries has played less than 15 minutes in five of the Nets last six games, and he played just two minutes against the Bulls on Tuesday. Now he’s not even going to get to…

  23. Andrew Bynum has swelling in his knee, says he may not play this season

    Mar 1, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Welcome to the Sixers nightmare. Their worst-case scenario was to trade Andre Iguodala and other young players and get nothing from Andrew Bynum because his nagging knee injuries flared up. Now that’s exactly where we are. Andrew Bynum admitted Friday that he had some swelling after recent practice, reports John Gonzalez of CSNPhilly.com. He has…

  25. MarShon Brooks with alley-oop to himself (VIDEO)

    Feb 25, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    MarShon Brooks

    Let’s be honest here — MarShon Brooks made a nice up-and-under move then missed the shot. But did what your junior high coach always told you and followed his shot — that led to the dunk. Brooks has skills but no way he intentionally passed off the backboard, had it carom off the rim, then…
