Ray Allen “Reportedly” Wants Revenge on the Celtics
Celtics fans have been in an uproar since the announcement of their sharp shooter All-Star Ray Allen signing with the rival Miami Heat. While money was not the reason for him signing in Miami, as the pay was much less than what the Celtics offered, many speculations arose that the reason Allen left was due to his disgruntled relationship with teammate Rajon Rondo. Cue the #blameRondo hashtags.
According to league sources however, Ray’s disenchantment on the Celtics was not fully to blame on Rondo. Allen felt unwanted on the C’s. Whatever disrespect he felt from the Celtics, he quickly grew enthralled with the idea and dreams Pat Riley fed into his head.
In a controversial article written by Wojnarowsk that explains Allen’s departure from Boston, he hints that Ray Allen now seeks revenge on his former team, and what better to do it than with the Miami Heat. In the article he writes:
When Allen left Miami on Friday, the Heat were unsure they had convinced him. He’s hard to read. They knew he’d fly home to New England, think it over, and it would still be so difficult for him to extract himself from the Celtics. Whatever the allure to Allen, his DNA was still made of loyalty and routine, and that still had to give Boston an edge.
Yet, it turns out Allen’s trip to South Beach made him feel so wanted, so inspired, and, truth be told, so eager to stick it to the Celtics. He could’ve broken Boston’s hearts and left for anywhere, but clearly there’s a part of Allen that wants to exact some kind of revenge on the Celtics. There was nowhere else to do that but Miami.
I don’t think this will sit too well with Boston fans. Whether it is true or not, I doubt that Ray would come forth and admit to any of this. On the other hand, Heat fans would soak it all in as most enjoy their “haters” and the scrutiny they receive from around the league.
Then again, we all know, 98% of Heat fans were rooting for Cleveland just 2 years ago. But I’ll leave that be.
