We’ve all witnessed the movie scene where the scorned lover runs off and his/her partner, normally after a moment of introspection, chases in pursuit. Rain normally pounds from the sky, for production value, and maybe the two lovers argue once they meet each other on the side of the road, or maybe at an airport, with an airplane awaiting to whisk the scorned lover away. They scream at each other, they cry, they pour their hearts out, they make up, and the scene almost always ends with a kiss to formally reunite the couple.

Ray Allen, by almost all accounts, is scampering through rain toward an airplane waiting to whisk him away from Boston. But the Celtics won’t let him leave without chasing in pursuit.

On Ray Allen/Heat rumors: "Ray is doing what he should do. He's listening to offers. Other teams are interested, but we're interested too." about 2 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®ReplyRetweetFavorite @carolynmanno Carolyn Manno

So many signs point to Allen wanting to leave Boston, but A) he has history in Boston, B) the Celtics can still give him an important role, if not a starting one (don’t think they can use a high-scoring, deadly-shooting sixth man?), and C) they can offer him more money than most contenders.

Allen may have one foot out the door, but the Celtics should be ready to chase him down.
