Late Friday night it was announced that Ray Allen had decided to not re-sign with the Boston Celtics and sign with the Miami Heat. Most people understand Allen’s thought process on the decision. He obviously believes that he has the best chance to win another championship with the Heat. Add in the fact that his relationship with Rajon Rondo is apparently not the best and it’s easy to see why Allen chose the Heat.
But all of that is enough for the Hornets’ Jarret Jack. Jack thinks that Allen is traitor for spurning the Celtics for the Heat and he took to his Twitter page to ask his followers their opinion on the matter.
Am I wrong for thinking ray allen is a traitor for signing with his rival team the heat? Tell me what u think!!!!!!
