Y’all duck! Shots Fired.
When Ray Allen bolted from Boston to play for the Heat last summer he was heavily criticized by fans and former teammates. Kevin Garnett even admitted to deleting his number.
Now that Pierce and Garnett are now in Brooklyn, Lebron and Wade wonder why they haven’t faced the same scrutiny.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade wondered Wednesday what the difference was between what Allen did and what Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry did this offseason in joining the Nets.
“The first thing that I thought was like, `Wow, Ray got killed for leaving Boston and now these guys are leaving Boston,” James told reporters after practice. “I think it’s OK. I don’t mind it, but there was a couple guys that basically [criticized] Ray for leaving and everybody else is leaving.”
“Listen, we all know how the world works,” Wade said. “The biggest thing is Ray is happy here. If they’re happy in Brooklyn, I’m going to be happy. We all know how it works. People say things about people when they decide to do something but then people do the same thing. It’s about putting yourself in the best situation. It’s about doing what’s best for your family.”
I can’t wait to see these two play this season.
