BOSTON (CBS) – With 98.5 The Sports Hub the new home of the Boston Celtics, Toucher & Rich were able to spend some time with new forward Kris Humphries at the team’s media day.

The Celtics acquired Humphries, Keith Bogans and MarShon Brooks in a draft-night trade with the Brooklyn Nets for Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.

When the Celtics held a press conference to officially introduce Humphries, Bogans and Brooks as part of the team there was a picture taken where the players didn’t look too excited. What did Humphries have to say about that day?

“To be honest with you guys, I never expected to play for the Celtics. We’ve had rivalries and haven’t got along. I never though ‘hey they’d bring me here,'” said Humphries, adding later that he’s happy to be in Boston.

They went on to discuss more about the Celtics/Nets rivalry, which really started with Humphries and Rajon Rondo. Last season, Rondo took exception to a hard foul Humphries had on Kevin Garnett and the two got into a scuffle.

Humphries told T&R that the dust up on the court was blown out of proportion, but they are having some fun with it this year. He tells the two that the Celtics have a voting board in their locker room tallying votes for either Rondo or Humphries.

“I think it’s about even or maybe he has one more check mark than me. I would vote on my point guard too,” laughed Humphries.

The conversation moved to basketball and how head coach Brad Stevens has talked about the team being more up-tempo. How does that style of play help Humphries’ game?
