Every time I reference Ray Allen on Facebook or Twitter, I got a flock of flack from Boston Celtics fans who are eager to proclaim they’ve moved on from the Ray-Ray saga. Many have asked, why I continue to harp on the Allen departure? My answer is simple, Ray Allen has been my favorite member [...]
Another must read Doc Rivers article from Adrian Wojnarowski, this one is full of a very candid Doc talking about the reason Ray left, a lot of them are the rumors that were reported recently. Doc also says he takes full blame for Ray Allen's decision to leave.
Essentially what Doc says is Ray left for a few reasons.
1. He was upset that Rondo had the ball so much and his role...
It’s not too often that a player leaves a team via free agency and that player’s former coach shoulders the blame for said player leaving.

When Ray Allen left the Boston Celtics to join the Miami Heat in free agency many wonder why? Well it appears Allen did not get along on the best of terms with Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and management. As you see below Doc Rivers says blame him for Rondo leaving.

Doc Rivers said that his decisions to remove Ray Allen from the starting lineup and give Rajon Rondo total freedom on offense and leadership were what helped lead Allen to leave the Celtics.
When Ray Allen left Boston for the Miami Heat, my first thought was: “Damn we’re going to miss his clutch 3′s.” My second thought was: “Damn I’m really going to miss his sweet J’s.” No..not those J’s-his Jordans. During his time with the Celtics, Ray wore some sweet Air Jordan player exclusives. I doubt we will ever see a better selection of kicks than we did...

1. Celtics at Heat (Oct. 30th)
This was already going to one of the best games on this year’s schedule but when Ray Allen decided to sign with the Heat this match up just got 10 times better.

Team U.S.A. is cruising in these 2012 Olympic Games and are currently 3-0 after completely devastating Nigeria. And should the U.S. march towards yet another gold medal, it will certainly be the last time head coach Mike Krzyzewski will be leading the team. This begs the question -- who will be the next head coach for the U.S. at the 2016 Olympics?
Right now, many feel it could...
