Really guys? Really?!! When I heard about this story I laughed—out loud because it’s so childish and ridiculous! Apparently, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are still mad at Ray Allen for his decision to play with the Miami Heat and not play for the Brooklyn Nets.
Dudes, get over it! Ray Allen made the best business decision for him, as did former Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Ray Allen seems to be taking it all in stride. In an interview with the Boston Herald he said:
“For them to be so upset with me is disappointing because of how everything happened,” Allen said. “That banner in 2008 is still going to be there, and we’re still going to be tied to it.
“Look, I have a feeling they were in the same predicament I was in this summer. Even with Doc (Rivers), he had to make a decision that was best for himself. I was in the same situation. I’m happy they were put into the same situation as I was. Anytime you get traded there’s no telling where you could end up. They’re in a situation now where they can contend. Kevin had to make that decision, and that was the predicament I was in.”
I mean, really people. This is not high school. The NBA is a business, and like any business, players have to make the best business decision that suits them.
It seems Ray Allen wanted out of the cold.
