Figure skating expert Kris Humphries is the Scott Hamilton of the NBA

The ever entertaining Jimmy Toscano  wandered the locker room asking various Celtics  which Winter Olympics event they’d most like to enter, and Kris Humphries offered the best response (Rajon Rondo  a distance second ).
“It’s kind of weird. I don’t know if I’d want to play it, but I always grew up watching figure skating  with my mom. It’s pretty impressive. I don’t think I could ever do that, but I’ve got a lot of respect for them. I grew up with the Tonya Harding “Tonya Tapper” and that whole deal, so I’m waiting for some action in that sport. It hasn’t come in a while.”
While he could easily be screaming “Why me?” crumpled on the floor somewhere in the depths of the Garden, Humphries isn’t taking the Nancy Kerrigan approach to this 19-35 Celtics  season just yet.
“I didn’t come here thinking that we were going to be struggling like this,” he said. “I think you’re a loser if you come in and say this is where we’re going to be at, so I can’t really comment further than that.”
Since he arrived in Boston before training camp, Humphries has said all the right things about joining a rebuilding team 10 years into his NBA career, and his willingness to accept the various roles Brad Stevens  has given him throughout the season may have made him more than just a $12 million expiring contract on the trade market. Not that he would know anything about that after another productive night (15 points, 6 rebounds in 23 minutes).
“I think you guys are more in touch with what’s going on than we are, so I’ll look and see what you guys are writing later. You just enjoy the break. If you get that call, you get that call. Otherwise, we’ll see you Wednesday in Phoenix.”
