Everyone is mad at Jesus.

Regardless if Allen was feeling Drakish and that was the reason he left the Celtics, the facts are he was a free agent and he made a choice.

Doc Rivers disagrees with that choice.

“I’m just disappointed, he should have stayed,” Rivers said.

“I thought we did [pursue him],” Rivers said. “[President of basketball operations] Danny [Ainge] in particular did exactly what he should have done. Kevin Garnett was our focal point, and he should have been. If that got anyone ruffled, then that’s probably too bad. We did everything that we’re supposed to do.

“[Allen] had his reasons. I think emotionally he probably got bent sideways a little bit by us courting Kevin, for some reason. I don’t know, honestly. Listen, he was great for us when he was here and that’s all we can say for it. Clearly, we would have liked him to stay with us.
