Shut up. Lebron, Wade, and Bosh alone make the Heat the most stacked team in the league. Doesn't matter who you put around them.

While it's a bit rough to see him leave for such a polarizing in conference rival, there shouldn't be any ill-will towards a guy for making a career move that fits squarely with the needs and priorities of his family.

Again, all the best to the guy. End of an era, certainly.
I wonder, what was the Celtics offer? Does this ensure Ray doesn't get his number retired by the Celtics? Are the big 3/4 not as close as everybody thought? Did Ray Allen feel like an outcast? I still remember the smug look on his face when Pierce won the Finals MVP.

It's not exactly a reach to assume Pierce, Garnett and Rondo won't exactly be patting Ray on the back and wishing him good luck as he walks out the door.

Like someone else said, this not only affects the Celtics but every contending team. The fact that he joined the already most stacked team in the NBA goes to show how much he values tagging along for another ring over playin for the greatest Celtics teams (that he helped build) since the 80's, one which he already won a championship with.
Again, all conjecture. You don't now anything about the Boston fan base if you believe he gets boo'd upon arrival in a Heat jersey. The guy was an integral part of that 2008 championship and a primary reason they were considered a contender beyond that point.

Lots of people who have never even been to Boston or a Celtics game at the Garden speaking from a dimwitted, uninformed soapbox.

As Y! had reported, Allen was angry w/ near-trade to Memphis at deadline. Too much acrimony to get past. Off to Miami for less money.

Please quote anything I've written in this thread that would indicate I'm angry, or anything but accepting and understanding about the topic we're discussing. Not everybody is as foolish and biased as the lion share of posters on this board, my dear.

Doc Rivers had tried to mend Rondo-Allen issues after season, but one team source says, "They were too far gone."

Heat still aren't that stacked to be honest especially if Wade is really in a decline opposed to just simply hurt.

They still have serious weaknesses in the front-court. The good news for the Heat though and is that there are not many teams with dominant front-courts especially out East.

I'll think the Heat are cheating and there is no point in watching the NBA if they end up getting Camby as well but I don't think they will.

Ray is just going to replace Miller/Jones so a slight upgrade but nothing serious. Ray can't really create his own shot anymore at least based on what I've seen from him.
