LeBron James says Celtics fans shout down anyone not dressed in green. Chris Bosh says emotions will be high. Ray Allen has returned to his former, diplomatic self, saying he’s happy to be in Boston but has moved on from being a Celtic.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers? Well, despite all the riff-raff that happened when Allen first left and fired parting shots on his way out of Boston, Rivers says he just wants the best for his former player, too.
“I hope he gets a good round of applause,” Rivers said of Allen returning to Boston on Sunday for the first time since he left as a free agent. “He did a lot for this franchise. I know he’s a great guy.”
Allen’s teammates aren’t quite expecting Celtics fans to roll out the welcome mat, though.
“I don’t expect it to be good,” James said, according to The Miami Herald. “If you don’t wear green in that building, they don’t like you.”
Bosh, who also got an earful when he returned to Toronto after joining the Heat, said Allen can expect the feelings
BEST OF MAXIM
I don’t think people realized the pressure Lebron James was under to get that ring. The weight that was lifted off his shoulders had to be Precious sized.
It looked like all the emotion hit him again when the Heat visited the White House. He was truly at a lost for words of what to say when the President gave him the mic.
But, in the end he said what all of want to say when we...
It’s hard imagine being as excited for someone else to hit a half-court shot as LeBron James was Friday night against the Detroit Pistons. It wasn’t the prettiest chuck, but Michael Drysch’s earned $75,000 and a hug and tackle from James.How bout my man Michael with the sky hook from half court for 75k large!!! #wow #awesomeness— LeBron James (@KingJames) January 26, 2013Drysch...
President Obama honored the LeBron James and the 2012 NBA champion Miami Heat on Monday at the White House. James, a big Obama supporter who has won an NBA title, Olympic gold medals and MVP awards, was excited. almost giddy, to be on the grand stage. "I mean, we're in the White House," James said. "This is like, hey mama, I made it." Also on hand for...
NBA refs call traveling like the German police write up speeding on the Autobahn. The bigger the superstar, the lesser the likelihood you will get called for traveling.
And that’s why LeBron got away with this doozy of a walk Friday night against the Pistons. It should take at least two dribbles to get the hole from half court, right? RIGHT? Not when you’re LBJ.
A torn ACL is a death sentence to any athlete. When a star in the league suffers that gruesome injury, all you can do is feel for them. It is a helpless feeling being that player, especially when they believe it is only a minor injury. That was the case for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, after he thought he had only hyperextended his knee during Boston’s double overtime loss...
MIAMI -- If the Miami Heat ever slumps offensively this season, perhaps they can call Michael Drysch. For now, though, the Heat are doing just fine, earning their fourth straight win by beating the Detroit Pistons, 110-88, Friday night. Dwyane Wade scored 17 of his 29 points in the second quarter, and LeBron James added 23 points to power the Heat (28-12), who lead the Eastern...

BOSTON -- On the day the Boston Celtics learned they have lost Rajon Rondo for the season to a knee injury, they ended their six-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, with a 100-98 double-overtime victory over the Miami Heat Sunday. The Boston win spoiled the return of Ray Allen, who won a championship with the Celtics but left for free agency after last season. Allen scored...
