GRANTLAND: Boston Fans – Introducing … the New Big Three!

Updated: August 1, 2013

This part of Grantland’s NBA Summer Movement piece made me laugh out loud and I had to share the humor.

Hey Boston fans…….we Nets fans know how you feel.

The made up text exchange is PRICELESS.

“Is this gonna upset me?”
“I think it’s safe to say that.”

For the unforgettable press conference in which a bummed-out Kris Humphries, a delighted-to-be-overpaid Keith Bogans and a possibly suicidal MarShon Brooks were introduced to the Boston media by a deflated Danny Ainge and a shell-shocked Brad Stevens two weeks after the big Brooklyn-Boston trade.

Even if it was a morbidly depressing day for Celtics fans, that photo slayed me. And so did this one.

Here’s the text exchange that I think was happening here.

Brooks: Where are we getting drunk tonight?
Bogans: Liberty Hotel 9PM. DON’T TELL HUMPHRIES!
Brooks: Shit! He already asked what we were doing!
Bogans: What did you tell him?
Brooks: That we were going out.
Bogans: WTF?!?!?!?!?
Brooks: I’m sorry![/quote_simple]
