Ray Allen didn't do it. Or, so he says.
A controversial post appeared on the former Boston Celtics guard's Facebook page. But his publicist told ESPN's Rachel Nichols that Allen did not hit publish on that post. His account got hacked, and his Facebook page is no longer verified.
The post showed a photo of Allen, donning a Miami Heat jersey, elbowing his way past Rajon Rondo, donning a Boston Celtics jersey.
A caption read: "The power to Push limits."
This post came after Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis appeared on Kevin Garnett’s "Area21" show on Monday night. The elephant in the room was the absence of Allen.
"Everybody's asking us, ‘Where's Ray?'" Garnett said at the start of the show. "People don't understand that this is real life for us . . . and the situation with Ray is very sensitive."
But while Garnett started vague, the former Celtics began to get specific. They aired their grievances with Allen, whose relationship with his teammates went sour (and was never particularly fruitful) before he left Boston for the Miami Heat.
"It almost felt like, you're married and you come home and the wife and the kids and the clothes [are] out of the house and you didn't get a note or nothing," Pierce said of Allen's departure. "You didn't get an Instagram or Tweet or nothing. They just gone. Like, man, that's wrong."
