Before July 6, Kevin Garnett had a seemingly close relationship with Ray Allen. Both veterans went to the Celtics in 2007 with a common goal in mind — to join Paul Pierce in capturing their first NBA championship. After accomplishing that goal, it felt like nothing could drive a wedge between the brotherhood the Boston Three Party had established. That was until Allen decided to sleep with the enemy.

Garnett kicked off the offseason by re-signing with the Celtics and all but guaranteeing he’ll end his career in green. When Allen left money on the table to sign with Boston’s biggest Eastern Conference rival, the defending champion Miami Heat, K.G. took it personally.

“I don’t have Ray’s number anymore,” Garnett said at the Celtics’ media day Friday when asked if he has kept in touch with Allen, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.

Those of you who wondered if K.G. took it personally when Allen left have your answer. Doc Rivers was open about the fact that he did not agree with Ray’s reasons for leaving, and apparently Garnett feels the same and then some. They say time heals all, but it’s safe to say Allen is persona non grata around the Celtics facilities for at least the foreseeable future.
