Default How much respect have you lost for Ray Allen?

How b*tchmade is he for joining the Heat because the Celtics couldn't beat them? If he had no rings it would've been understandable, but he had already won one with the Celtics in 2008.

He could never be a first or second option, too mentally weak.

If he wasn't playing an important role in their team you may have a point...but he is.

Part of the reason he left was because his role on the celtics was becoming smaller and wasnt he the subject of multiple trade romurs? He's a human and did what was best for himself

Please. If Ray Allen was never traded by Minnesota he and Garnett would have won championships together.

I'm sure there is more to it than the simpleton "he couldn't beat the Heat so he joined them".

Not really, the Heat are stacked enough with three point shooters that not having Ray Allen would make almost no difference.

Only if they got someone to be the 2nd option, when he did win he was 3rd option and now he is like 6th option.

Can't hate on someone else's decision. It's their own choice. But if I was a player I wouldn't have joined the team that had knocked us out of the playoffs the last two years and that we have just played a tough 7 game series against but to each his own.

What if he stayed in Cleveland and Cleveland traded for Wade and Bosh? Would that be different?

Because LeBron wasn't happy with Cleveland not getting the team another really good player. So he sought out good players himself. Nothing wrong with that imo.

But he could of picked 28 other teams in the league to join than the Heat, who are the Celtics biggest rival right now.

He has the exact same role on the Heat as he did on the Celtics last year and would've had this year
