No matter which side you take in the Great Humphries-Rondo-Garnett Battle of 2012 — Kris Humphries was the aggressor, Kevin Garnett flopped and overreacted, Rajon Rondo maybe needs to chill a bit — the bad blood's not going away anytime soon.

Brooklyn's Kris Humphries was ejected for his part in the brawl, and shortly afterward tweeted the photo at right. Who gave him the scratches? Who knows, but he added, "Anyone know where I can get a quick Tetanus shot in Boston?"

Oh, but the trash-talking wasn't done. The New York Daily News reported that many of the players on both teams kept on talking long after the fighting was done.

Boston point guard Jason Terry, who played with Humphries in Dallas, called him "soft," adding, "Some guys are tough. Some guys pretend to be. He's one of those that pretends to be."

Brooklyn's Reggie Evans compared Rondo, eight inches shorter and 50 pounds lighter than Humphries, to a bug bothering his teammate: "That's just like a mosquito in your face. Eventually, you are going to swat at the mosquito, right? 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."

Oh, and then there's this, a shot of Garnett making sure that Humphries hit the ground by hooking his ankle:
