Ray Allen might have moved on to another team (he is now part of the Miami Heat), it seems that his heart has not moved on when it comes to being one of the Big Three at the Boston Celtics.
Ray Allen is born Walter Ray Allen, Jr. and is currently connected with the Miami Heat. In the past, Ray Allen has played for such teams as the Milwaukee Bucks, Seattle Supersonic, and , of course, Boston Celtics. Aside from being a 10-time NBA All Star, he is also credited as one of the most accurate 3-point shooters as well as one of the most reliable free throwers in the whole of NBA history. He was also part of the 2000 US team that competed in the Olympics and went home with the gold.
With the 2012 – 2013 season already on the road, Ray Allen has finally decided to break his silence and talk about his “concerns” about the Celtics management. Not only is Allen disappointed with the Celtics management, it looks like he also has an ax to grind with then teammate Rajon Rondo. This is very apparent based on the fact that he had already done about three separate interviews (and counting) since late last month. Allen claims that the Celtics management were planning to trade him to Phoenix Suns along with Rajon Rondo in order for the team to acquire basketball players Amar’e Stoudemire and Leandro Barbosa. This was back in 2009. With this plan all set, Allen was tasked to inform Rondo about the trade since, at that time, Rondo and the Celtics management are giving each other the cold shoulder of sorts. According to Allen, what happened was Rondo thought Allen had something to do with the trade-off. This drove a wedge between the friendship of the two NBA stars, and could very well be the reason for Allen rejecting the $12-million dollar contract that would allow him to return to Boston Celtics. As we all know now, he instead went with a three-year deal with the Miami that earned him just about $3 million more per season.
To date, Doc Rivers has not issued any statement about Ray Allen’s concerns. He seems to be taking the better way out by not adding more to the issue and fanning the flames. The Miami Heat team, on the other hand, seems to be basking in glory as they won the game last October 30 against the Celtics, 120-107. The said game served as the season opener and was also where the Miami Heat were able to raise their banner and receive their championship rings. And the fans seem to be more “at peace” with Allen on the Miami Heat team with most of them chanting positively about his game. It is not advisable, however, for Allen and his teammates to rest on their laurels as, just like what Lebron James said, it is just the first game.
