The Boston Celtics traded Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Jason Terry to the Boston Celtics. In return they got forwards Gerald Wallace and Kris Humphries, guard/forward Keith Bogans, guard MarShon Brooks, forward Kris Joseph, three future first-round draft picks and the option to swap first-round picks during the 2017 draft.
Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans were introduced at a press conference today and they look extremely upset to be holding those Celtics jersey.
Maybe it’s cause they helped a franchise return to prominence and watched them get sent right back to a team that is looking to rebuild and likely find itself with a lottery pick.
In the picture, posted to the Boston Celtics Instagram page, they look less than pleased. The commenters were quick to notice the expression on their faces, whoever posted it to the Celtics page likely didn’t notice.

“We’re excited about their presence,” Danny Ainge said of the three additions from Brooklyn. “Kris has been a great rebounder, has given us fits in the past. Keith has made a lot of big 3-pointers in his career against us. A terrific player, a leader in the locker room, highly regarded from every coaching staff he’s been on. And then MarShon, a guy that we drafted, actually, and we should’ve drafted, made us look bad by being a terrific young player. We look forward to working with these guys.”
ESPN Boston posted a picture from the introductions where they look happier.
