Ray Allen claims his Facebook account was hacked after controversial post

Ray Allen claims his Facebook account was hacked after controversial post

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."

BOSTON -- You had to figure Ray Allen would respond in some way to the shade thrown his way when the starting five from the championship squad -- minus himself, who wasn’t given an invite -- appeared together on Kevin Garnett’s Area21 show last night.

Early this morning, Allen took to Facebook with a message that read, "The power to Push limits."

 

It also included a photo of Allen being guarded by former Celtic Rajon Rondo.

During the Area 21 episode on Monday night, Garnett tried to explain why the group didn’t invite Allen to the reunion.

"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."

Garnett was joined by fellow 2008 starters Rondo, Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins as well as key sub Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis.

They each acknowledged how hurt they felt when Allen left the Celtics as an unrestricted free agent to sign with the Miami Heat where he helped LeBron James win his first NBA title.

While Allen signing with the Heat bothered the players, it seems their issue with Allen had more to do with him leaving without talking it out or giving them a heads-up that it was happening.

"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," said Pierce. "You didn't get an Instagram or Tweet or nothing. They just gone. Like, man, that's wrong."

Pierce later added how the feelings that he and some of his teammates in Boston have towards Allen, might be different if he had just talked to them about what he was thinking before he made the decision.

"Then it would have settled over a little bit more," Pierce said. "I don't think we would have been as salty. Now it's uncomfortable. I haven't talked to Ray in some years now and it's just, it's different."
