Ray Allen Knows His Move From Boston To Miami Was Hard On The Fans. But Management & Teammates, They
Plain talk from former Celtics standout Ray Allen. Here he is in Shanghai, telling his side of the story. In essence, he is letting viewers & fans know that it wasn't him wanting to leave Boston, it was the Celtics... not doing what it took to keep him there. No beef with nobody on his side, even though some folks apparently reeeeally had HEAT for him for taking his talents to South Beach.
Ray Allen spoke in an exclusive interview with Tencent's Lisa Hsu about the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Paul Pierce and being a champion. Tencent, ESPN's partner in China, is hosting its annual Super Penguin Basketball Celebrity Game in Shanghai.
Makes some good points in this interview. Pro sports is BUSINESS, not personal. And there is NO loyalty. The Celts could have dropped Allen, and that would be that; not a tear shed.
