Humphries had a near double-double with 13 points and nine rebounds. After a stint in the starting lineup, Humphries has moved back to the bench, and I'm not sure why exactly, but he's still playing with a purpose regardless.He's been a guy moved around in this lineup, or he's been a player who didn't see much time, but unlike some other guys on the roster. Humphries has been a true professional.So how does he stay so positive after the team struggles?
"If you have animals you go home hang out with them and spend time with family and you focus on your hobby when not your practicing. When you are practicing you practice hard and get ready for the next game."
Humphries is solid, and he plays within his abilities.He gives effort every single game,and I really hope the Celtics can bring him back on a solid contract that won't hurt the future. At best maybe the Celtics can turn him into a nice player, if the Celtics are unable to bring him back. Maybe a sign and trade this summer. I would rather see him stay.
I don't think Humphries is the future when it comes to help leading the Celtics back to title contention, but he's a player that can help in some ways for that quest. He can be a solid big off the bench, and in a bind he can provide you with a double-double.
