Former Boston Celtics player Ray Allen spoke with the Miami Herald today, and revealed the details of a failed trade in 2009 that would have changed everything.
According to Allen, Celtics GM Danny Ainge proposed a trade in 2009 that would have sent Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo to the Phoenix Suns in exchange for Amar'e Stoudemire, Leandro Barbosa, and the 14th-overall pick.
Luckily for us, we were able to hold on to Rondo and we are getting Barbosa. But what do you think would have happened if the Celtics had gotten Amar'e? How would that have worked with KG when he came back from his injury, since we still had Perkins so there would be no need for Garnett at the 5? Leave your comments below.

Ray Allen said Boston fans have no reason to boo him because the Celtics gave him no choice but to leave for Miami. See why he feels that way.
A couple of quotes after last night’s game have slipped under the radar. Both are awesome explanations about why the Celtics looked so good against Brooklyn last night… and both are so perfectly indicative of the person who uttered them. I could not tell you who said them, and there’s no doubt in my mind you could figure out who they came from.
But I’ll tell you anyway...
For those of you wondering how life is treating Ray Allen down in sunny Miami, here’s last night’s game recap from the Miami Herald:
WORST OF LAST NIGHT: Ray Allen off his game

Ray Allen wants the world to know he’s more than a three-point shooter. He can put the ball on the floor, go to the hole, make the pass and… [wait for it] work in the post. From the Sun Sentinel:
One of the areas the Heat could possibly use Allen is in the post. It was a big part of his game during the early portion of his career before he became identified mostly as a jump-shooter...
Ray Allen sounds like a guy that's trying really, really hard to convince himself that he made the right decision

I know that the Ray Allen thing has been beaten to death on every Celtics blog and most Heat blogs as well. But the above tweet from the very astute MrTripleDouble10 caught my attention.

BOSTON -- As 30-somethings who figure to play major minutes for the Celtics this season, Kevin
Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry have taken some obligatory rest this
preseason. Even relative youngsters like Brandon Bass and Darko Milicic have
been pulled back to keep minor injuries from turning into more serious ones.
Easing through October is seldom a bad...
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.
