Ray Allen Says Celtics Didn’t Treat Him Right, So Fans Shouldn’t Boo Him
Sugar Ray was asked a question and he gave an honest answer, but let it go.
The Celtics offered him double what the Heat put on the table, he just wanted to leave which is fine and was his right as a free agent, no need to try to justify it with comments like this.
It was a business decision and the team put me in the position where we had to move. We had to go. Miami was a better choice for us based on what the team was doing, so it wasn’t, don’t boo me, boo the team in a sense. Now it’s out of my control. … When this contract situation came down, everybody in my circle — mom, family, brother, sister, friends from college, people who watched me since I was in high school and since I was in college — nobody wanted me to resign in that situation because they thought, ‘There [is] so much left in you and this team isn’t taking care of you or treating you right.’ That’s the way I felt and it was like, if you are going to come and not put out a good contract on the table then, hey, we gotta think about going somewhere else.”
I personally don’t think Allen has a lot left in the tank. He will hit some open 3s, but he is living off his name.
The Celtics in my opinion upgraded by getting Jason Terry to fill his position.
