So a story came out today on ESPN in which Ray Allen admitted that his ankles have not completely healed following surgery last June and that he may require treatment as the season goes forward. "I still deal with soreness in my ankle that I work through every day," Allen revealed, with just a week to go before the Heat open the season against the C's. Could be Ray's way of "managing expectations" for both Heat fans and Celtics Nation - which is expected to give him the third degree, come Oct. 30.
Could also be Ray's new way of dealing with the trade rumors. By disclosing this injury, it can't be easy for Pat Riley to trade him now. Smart move, #34!
