Rondo. Trade rumors. Being benched for Bradley. The 3 main things I remember people talking about. Not sure how much of it were true or not.

Only Allen knows, but we can speculate and those three are part of it.

Other possibilities:
-Declining usage with less plays run through Allen. He wanted some plays added (like in the post against a mismatch), but Doc stuck with the same system with Rondo having the ball and Ray being the decoy
-Unknown future direction of the Celtics. This kind of coincides with trade rumors. Are the Celtics going to blow up or are they going to fight it out?
-Heat showed more interest in getting Allen's services than Celtics. Pat Riley persuaded him on how they are going to use Allen and how Allen can make an impact
-Golf course
-Warm
-He felt hospitals in Miami took just as much care for his son as in Boston
-Contract situation. Every Celtics player from free agency seem to have 3 years. He gets 2 with less money.
-It's best for his family. I think his mom has a house in Orlando.

I was a HUGE Ray-Ray fan, but now, after the celtics pushed hard to get him in the offseason, offered him more money than the heat, and he still left. Obv if a team is trying to push that hard to sign you, they want you to be a vital part of their offense and want you back on their team. I don't see the celtics signing him to that contract then turning around and trading him, even with rondo going down this season. Winning his first ring in boston, breaking the 3 point record in boston, he became so much of the team....I wish he would have just grinded it out with us......

Zero respect for joining this crew.

There's only one thing that makes this whole Heat conspiracy "okay". In twenty years, when people are talking about great teams, the Heat will not be mentioned casually. People will always talk Lakers, Celtics, Spurs, Bulls, but the Heat - because absolute hatred has existed - will not be mentioned.

Can't wait for Ray Allen, like every other Heat player, to retire.

In before everyone else,

Butt Hurt in Cleveland (think of something new)

You don't know your own team's players, heck you don't even know what your team is, so I will excuse you for not being aware of Noah's hatred for the Heat and Lebron in particular. He would shave his head before pissing in Miami's locker room, let alone join them.

LOL

Fukk Boston, Ray Allen wasn't drafted by the Celtics. Ray was traded to the Celtics, then disrespected. Benched for the great Avery Bradley. Ray owes his allegiance to Seattle, he joined to Heat so he could fukk wit clay bennett.

Bunch of fukkin fans thinking these professional athletes owe a god damn city anything is beyond hilarious. bunch of conditioned nationalistic fukkin knuckleheads.

if that's what you think, then how much bigger of a b*tch lebron is


also, the reason is mostly because of issues with rondo and the team wanting to trade him. if the team is not loyal to him and treating him well, then why should he.

The Celtics had also signed Jason Terry while Ray was deciding what to do. Probably didnt help matters in terms of not knowing what his role would be.

In fact, none of the Heat are to be respected really. They got the next 2 championships locked up, yet not an ounce of respect gained.

Memphis offered him more than Miami. If he really cared about a role, he wouldnt have went to Miami. His decision to join Miami was made up before he was even a free agent.

No they didn't. The Grizzlies were pressed up against the tax threshold, and only had the tax payers mid-level at their disposal, same as Miami.

I lost most of my respect for him long before joining the Heat. His btchmade comments directed at Kobe when Allen was with Seattle caused me to detest him. And he's a UConn guy, so it takes a lot for me to turn on a former Husky.

His comments about Kobe then were 100% correct. Please quote them here to show how foolish your statement is.

How are the comments bitchmade? It was how he perceived Kobe, and his statements were justified considering A) he played against Kobe and B) it happened to be true.
