The Doc story seems fake. I mean, perhaps it was what Doc told Ray but clearly that can't be the real reason. And Ray just took it as if it was.

I think Ray is just such a literal and serious person that it's hard for him to catch the nuances of social interaction. Like the Garnett thing at the restaurant...it seems Garnett was just being a buddy.

locker room cancer? or is that stretching it?

Nah, despite their weird relationship, Allen still had this to say about KG:

Quote:
Still, Allen wrote that of all the teammates he has had, “If I had to choose only one to play with, it would be Kevin Garnett. No one else comes close.”

Ray is just salty Bradley was better than him before Avery needed double shoulder surgery.

Ray releasing this shit now to cover that he had a gay lover. No getting over that one.

Dribbling in the locker room is ****ing annoying, KG just told it as he saw it. The restaurant thing shows Ray Allen is oversensitive, I mean I understand if he felt awkward at the time it happened but to write about it with such grudge years later makes you wonder who actually is the douche here.

I have zero doubt that KG can probably come off as too much sometimes and if you can't roll with the punches, he could drive you nuts...but it sounds like KG was just busting his balls with the restaurant thing.

I like Ray and hate KG and Rondo but he's kind of being overly sensitive about the things he's talking about.

Not to mention Doc wasn’t the GM. Knowing his history, there’s no way Ainge hesitates to make that deal if it was on the table.

I don't understand how people are calling Ray overly sensitive or petty here..

He's releasing a book...he's telling all the things that went down...that's usually what happens when you release a biography.

I'm sorry but KG always came off as a nutcase to me. Many people saw it as passionate, focused and intense...I just saw it as him not being all there and being corny. So if Ray tells a story like the restaurant one..I'm gonna lean towards KG making the situation awkward more than Ray over analyzing it.

I always understood that deal to be for O.J. Mayo. Never heard of a Chris Paul trade in the works.

We all know LeTards would be sucking KG's d1ck if he were the one to defect like a traitor to help the Queen get a ring.

All Ray Love XOXO.

Because he wasn't trying to be the kind of player that took over games and won MVP awards. Just wasn't him. KG on the other hand was an elite player for years. Pierce, Allen, Rondo, all of them got the most they could out of their talents. And that's why the personalities are worth putting up with. That's why you put up with a guy like Rodman or the Shaq/Kobe conflict.
In 2010 (?) they had Shaq, Nate, Sheed all doing nonsense in practise, Stephon was there as well. Must have been quite a task to manage the squad. Rondo being Rondo, apparently, KG his type of crazy, Allen having his OCD. I guess Pierce was the one to balance it out?

I was really disappointed they didn't really try to close out the Finals on 2010. There wasn't much sense of urgency... Which lead to the horrible game 7 in LA
