Jason Terry Calls Kris Humphries a Fake Tough Guy After Fight

by Marcel Mutoni@marcel_mutoni

Things became testy and then some between the Boston Celtics and the visiting Brooklyn Nets last night.

Rajon Rondo, Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace were all ejected following a long shoving match that spilled into the stands. After the game, both teams gave their versions of what happened out there.

According to Celtics guard Jason Terry, Kris Humphries isn’t so tough — he just acts like it.

From the Boston Herald:

Jason Terry, who played with Humphries during the 2009-10 season in Dallas, later tore into his former teammate. “That was unnecessary,” Terry said of Humphries’ foul on Garnett. “Some guys are tough and some guys pretend to be. He’s one that pretends to be. Maybe that’s the role Avery (Johnson) wants him to have.”

Asked what kind of player Humphries was in Dallas, Terry said, “Soft.”

Over on the Nets’ side, Kris Humphries tweeted out a photo of the scratches he got during the melee.

Reggie Evans, meanwhile, compared Rajon Rondo to a bug. Per the NY Daily News:

“That’s just like a mosquito in your face. Eventually, you are going to swat at the mosquito, right?” Evans told reporters. “You aren’t going to let mosquitos in your face. You are going to get bumps all over your face. So you have to knock the mosquito down.”

The Boston Celtics visit the Brooklyn Nets on Christmas Day for the rematch. Fun times.

    So by Jet’s logic…only tough guys should take ‘hard’ fouls???

    I see he has been chugging the kool aid….

  • pposse

    Wheres’ Tim Thomas when you need him??

  • Omar

    Who thinks Kris Humphries is tough?

    lol @ the rondo comment. I agree

  • Reedo

    Too be honest KG was the fake touch guy to me and deserves a flopping fine because this wasn’t a hard foul Kris contested and KG and flying!

  • Max

    That picture of Humph is pretty funny.
    And Rondo is the fake tough guy here IMO.

    Rajon was probably still upset about how he treated Kim.

  • roscoe

    Cessna is all bark & no bite.

  • Mike Mihalow

    There’s no faker tough guy than Jason Terry.

  • JML-G

    Humphries and ‘tough guy’ – cmon now, he is as soft as they come.. no wonder a basically girly dude like Kanye can do his wife and poor Kris cant do sh*t bout it, just get mad in the club when Theraflu comes up

    Rondo is the effin man…obviously he over reacted but man, I love his attitude….I just wish he brought that to every single game he played

  • ahahah

    That wasnt even a hard foul, the celtics are babies

  • G

    Celtics over reacted! I play in a co-ed league and I foul girls a lot harder than that and they sure don’t act like that.

  • Key_34

    That wasn’t a hard foul. Just so happened Kris fouled an old KG, not a young one.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HolyBaller Dillan Leu

    Tweeting pictures of SCRATCHES? You gotta admit, that’s a pretty pathetic move.

  • http://www.facebook.com/HolyBaller Dillan Leu

    Also, that “mosquito” pushed big ol’ Humphries almost into the 3rd row.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rainman1991 Saleem Rainman

    dafuq’s wrong with u lol

  • Dagger

    Nobody can come out of a pushing/scratching match looking tough.

  • danpowers

    humphries is the biggest b*tch boy above 220lbs on this planet. so that aint news mr rondo

  • danpowers

    also true

  • danpowers

    talkin about girly-stuff: rondo should cut his fingernails tho


    This whole incident was a joke… From the foul to the pushing to the way the media kept referring to it as a brawl. Ron Artest throws elbows tougher than this whole “fight”. Everybody involved is soft if you ask me. Tough guys would’ve threw punches instead of pushed each other. My father always said if you want to fight, fight and get it over with; pushing is for women giving birth. All these dudes went into labor last night and Humphries had twins with that twitter post he put up after the game!

  • Waggle

    Letting his team down and missing out on a historic record over a run of the mill foul on KG? Great attitude. Seemed like he just didn’t want to play last night. I think its safe to say he”ll regret that one.

  • TR

    I’ve never seen Humphries try to be tough haha. Rondo gets on my nerves with these little antics sometimes. Napoleon complex is real.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mike-Gilbert/100001749589586 Mike Gilbert

    I didn’t mean attitude as in positive or negative, I meant attitude as in “sassy” or “swag” lol. You know he justs plays with an attitude…like a chip on his shoulder or something

  • Shifty

    Also is that how basketball players actually talk? You have to
    Knock the mosquito down….? Sounds stupid.

  • theDankerNuggets

    wow, Kris Humphries is getting no love on his twitter

  • Junior Taylor

    You lose the right to call someone else “fake” when playing on the same squad as the Original Fake Tough Guy himself, KG.

  • Sparker

    I’m thinkin’ Melo still has that one sewn up

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003246310246 Jason Carter

    I dont agree with ROndos actions but…the key word here is ACTIONS..which he took into his own hands…thats not fake at all.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ Nick Tha Quick

    It goes without saying that this and the soft label only happened after they released Darko. The Serbian Gangster would never let this happen. The Nets and the refs would hiding their female relatives.

  • Max

    What did Humph do to call him a fake tough guy than?

  • Redd

    Rondo is easily annoying.

  • LakeShow

    What does that mean?

  • Conor

    Jason Terry said this. That is all anybody needs to know.

    Exactly. How is it fake tough guy to get shoved by someone…

  • Max

    Hey, I guess it’s just Jason Terry being Jason Terry?

  • http://www.facebook.com/evan.boland Evan Boland

    Rondo fake tough guy yeah the due who played with one arm.

  • LakeShow

    I’m no Hump fan.
    I just don’t understand the vitriol.
    Sorry dude spanked the hottest Kardashian for a few months…

  • http://www.facebook.com/HolyBaller Dillan Leu

    More like she spanked him. Everyone knows she wore the pants in that relationship.

  • gab

    I hate Jason Terry he’s the fake tough guy.

  • http://www.facebook.com/chris.callihan1 Chris Callihan

    Who cares, he still smashed it, which I’m sure you’d let her wear the pants in order to do.

  • mikemike

    cant mess with tough guy terry, especially when he flies around like a jet after he makes a three. scary stuff

  • The Fury

    His name itself is scary.

  • robb

    Garnett flopped, Kris barely touched him. I agree, the only fake tough guys here are Rhonda and that tag-along.

  • Vince

    Old man Terry is full of crap. Kris didn’t even commit a hard foul, he’s not even known for being that type of guy. Garnett flopped, wanna see a real fake tough guy? Look at him, he goes after smaller players than him but can’t take criticism or a little contact. Pathetic. Rondo is the worst of em all, great player, shitty personality. He’s a punk.

  • bill

    This comes from a whole team of fake tough guys.

  • kc

    agreed, Melo is mr sucker punch and run like a girl! Boston Celtics are full of fake tough guys starting with KG and going on down the roster. Their own coach just said they are soft.

  • danpowers

    i dont know if he ever pretended to be hard or tough. hes a banger on the court – more or less. but i cant take “men” serious who do modeling and are into fashion. call it immature or politically incorrect but thats just… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXw6znXPfy4

  • http://www.facebook.com/HolyBaller Dillan Leu

    Oh no doubt about it lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/shooting.guard.319 Shooting Guard

    if i had to pick one roster with fake tough guys it would be the entire celtics team, i didn’t see anybody mess with reggie evans, they know better

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.collins.520125 Lisa Collins

    I agree the picture of Hump is pretty funny, the fact that he bothered to post them shows what a wuss he is. I don’t see how you can call Rondo a fake tough guy. How many players could dislocate their elbow, pop it back in an continue to play? I’d say that makes him pretty damn tough.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.collins.520125 Lisa Collins

    he went after KG first and then the teams both joined in, he didn’t get shoved by anyone, or at least until after he made the flagrant foul.

  • LakeShow

    You have video of him going at KG? I missed it…

  • Max

    I’m just saying, if there would be a fake tough guy of this whole thing, it would be Rondo because he just overreacted for something small..
