Ray of Light in Miami
What just happened: Boston star Ray Allen has agreed to sign a three-year, $9.7 million contract with the newly crowned champion Miami Heat, officially putting an end to the Celtics’ big three era. Allen spent five seasons with the Celtics and helped them win the 2008 title, but injuries have kept him from playing significant minutes last season.
What people will probably remember: The deterioration of friendship between Allen and Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. Sources close to Ray confirmed that the relationship between the two is too far gone, fueling speculations that the 10-time All-Star particularly joined Miami to stick Boston where it hurts the most. Or maybe Allen just wants to win a couple more rings.
Someone said this: “When it comes to basketball, Rondo is the smartest player on the team – one of the smartest players in the league. And Ray considers himself a smart guy. But at some point, it became hard for Ray to be corrected by a guy so much younger than him.” – says a source close to Ray Allen
