Default Re: Ray Allen joins the Miami HEAT!

Anyone genuinely angry about this either isn't a Celtics fan or hasn't observed Ray being pushed out of Boston's 'bigger picture' for awhile now. The injuries, post-season struggles, and surge in Bradley's reliability as a starter planted the seed for Ray's eventual departure. 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.

If this is true, its a sad day in Boston.

Danny Ainge payed dearly for trying to trade Ray. It looks like the potential trade and the fact that Allen lost his starting job was too much to overcome.


On the flip side, Boston did everything they could to keep him. They offered 2 years and 12 million. And were even willing to put a no trade clause in his contract. No other team could come close to that deal. There was even a rumor the Cs would go up to 3 years for Allen. That's the absolute best we can do. Even at 6 mil per year he may have been over valued.

I wish Ray Allen all of the best. It was a privilege to watch him play in green. This is going to be tough to get over. Very sad.

He was pretty garbage for the last 20 or so games of the season/playoffs. We'll see if he recovers.

Also, what, is he going to back up Wade?

I thought this would have broken on ESPN NBA or NBA.com by now.

Privately, Ray Allen had insisted to people that he didn't believe the city of Boston would be too hard on him for signing with Miami.

Wrong.

Spo always said he wanted Mike Miller to take 10 threes per game. Huge green light. They'll probably want Ray Allen to shoot 15 times.

I'm a fan of the NBA, am I not allowed to have an opinion?

The story of the tweet just broke in the Miami Herald newspaper.
