Ray Allen reflects on winning the championship with the Celtics
The most corners of the NBA world mention all of the Miami Heat will -- thoughts of LeBron and wade and even bosh and somewhere on the list Ray Allen around here Allen is at the top the list right now there's been a lot of talk from -- and others. About why he left the Celtics to join heats a lot of it not to cordial. Leading up to the opener here's -- final -- Well there's always. That the -- -- where you always know you remember. No just when insensitive but just all the time in between because it doesn't know and whenever you leave like a scene. Perk. And OKC has not seen a house. -- -- exposing not in the -- you know you've seen him after. We lost to lesser -- has done a -- you've seen him he's always a part of what we do what we've done. And you always showed a lot of respect so that doesn't that never changes that those that never changes for me in the hope we've been saying for them. Even -- he's getting mentally prepared to work with -- angry on an hour long special edition of celtics' pregame live -- that's a lot of work Donny -- kind enough to give -- few minutes leading Boston seems so personal -- -- -- surprise since he's been in this business of the NBA. So long that it was personal well you know how it is there with when you get older you you want people to do things for you because you want attention whether they're cutting your grassroots cooking for awhile. This right now the situation more ray. He likes this attention up into the point where he says okay enough I think on the other side Kevin Garnett they -- -- for -- asking those questions. But only until he says that's enough as far as race is concerned he understands he's saying all the right things and business and everyone says that when their player they just -- It's when you talk about. Race saying hey don't believe -- that this is not natural just not going to happen it's. It's fun to boo players and your -- we know that so well at every single sport across the board so. As far as this game goes tonight they'll -- Right have to go here and say OK it's not me against the Celtics it's the heat against the Celtics -- the Celtics are gonna do the same thing to do a great job of spinning things by saying you know what it's not about one guy. It's about this team in the new pieces we have to put on the floor and a team we get that together. It may be very hard tonight in May be very hard when the heat come to Boston to take on the Celtics but let's take the emotion out of it for a second is this a good fit Ray Allen with the Miami -- While they're making it sound like that and as far as you know they they heat and LeBron James are concerned this is LeBron James is one of three players that. To win a championship. Get the MVP accolade and and also I'll win a gold -- fell out with the guys Bill Russell Michael Jordan still he's already made a great category of his own. Would just throw one -- like Ray Allen you throw one another piece like Rashard Lewis. All it does now realism opens up the board that much more for LeBron James. And LeBron James says hey as long as it's open we don't need to -- we don't need a big so yes the -- are saying this is a terrific fit and I think Ray Allen is trying to do his best job of saying I like -- -- in case the weather is great you can golf every day. And you can knock out wide open threes and I think he's going to be able to do that down in Miami with the heat.
