    This is more like Danny Ainge and management screwed Ray Allen, didn't appreciate his value, and Ray was naturally upset about it. He took the best option, which was Miami Heat. And who wouldn't go with Miami after Boston just gave him a big "FU"? The other guys on Boston didn't understand that and took it personal, as if Ray left them. It's a triangle. Blame management.

          Bottom line Ray is one of the best shooters this planet has ever seen and he was a big part of all the chips he won. O and he probably made the most clutch shot in NBA history

              Ray allen is stupid - how can he say that the heat and lebron were not rivals. That means he was a traitor wearing green.

                    He won in Miami. So, what? Just leave Ray alone. He knows what best for him.

                        unbelievable that doc rivers put the ultimatum for ray allen to accept a bs contract. He then goes to the clippers and pays his son a borderline franchise player contract. SMH Doc is so overrated.

                              The Heat and the Celtics WERE rivals in those years! That is the main reason why the Celtics got mad at Ray. He joined the "enemy" in their eyes. Ray did nothing wrong though! He's handled all the negativity from his former Celtic teammates like a true professional. Ray Allen is the man.

                                        They mad at Ray because he made it to the Heat. The rest of them got traded to shit teams.

                                        Don't blame Ray, blame Danny boy lol.

                                          I think the Pacers is the main rival of the Heat that time because it was so intense that every year, players get physical to one another and altercation gets heated even in the regular season.

                                              I love Ray but come on Boston and Miami were rivals at that time. 2008 LeBron loses to them and 2010 Wade and LeBron lose to them. They team up together to beat Boston and then they face them in 2011 and 2012 and that 2012 series was a tough 7 game series. You can't say they weren't rivals then. They probably disliked each other more than any other teams then.

                                                Ray Allen is a Liar. He can't even straight answer simple questions or say what REALLY happened.

                                                  Ray has made the right decision. Why should others make an issue of that? The main goal of an NBA player is to win a championship.

                                                      Ray is telling it like it is. Ray's situation is not like cupcake Durant & okc & warriors. Ray is a true gentleman w/the k.g. celtics situation.

                                                        There is no excuse Ray, we watched and loved you on the court but Paul has every reason to be upset that he didn't know you were leaving before the ESPN family did

                                                            ray felt offended, they treated kg pierce way better than him. all and all i think him pierce and garnett should had met up and spoke about it. maybe they weren't that close in boston

Kevin Durant had no intention of resigning and had his mind set on the 73-9 team, could have gone to any other team and i would have not been bringing him up. What's fishy is that Ray Allen would have been paid less in Miami than he would have in Boston so....... I believe he's lying.
