Found October 22, 2012 on Philly Sports World:
Sixers will challenge HEAT The defending NBA Champs the Miami Heat with the addition of Ray Allen, have gotten older but still are king of the East. Our Sixers, had a huge off-season turning over their lineup with some big additions. But are those additions enough to knock off the Heat? To date we have not seen the crown jewel of the off-season Andrew Bynum and much rests on his shoulders (or for better word KNEES). Healthy, the Sixers are huge in comparison to the rest of the division, have a true center(s)  and tons of fouls to give. What you see in the regular season is not the likely product you will get come playoff time, the Sixers are big and built to dominate the paint. How they finish in the regular season will be important if we get a showdown with Miami. PLAYOFF 8 Eastern Conference 1. Miami   (62-20) King James and the rest of the Heat do deserve some respect, the addition of Ray Allen makes little difference for the league champions rank 2. Philadelphia (58-24) Huge cha...

How delusional is Ray Allen? He thinks he can play in the post

Ray Allen wants the world to know he’s more than a three-point shooter. He can put the ball on the floor, go to the hole, make the pass and… [wait for it] work in the post. From the Sun Sentinel: One of the areas the Heat could possibly use Allen is in the post. It was a big part of his game during the early portion of his career before he became identified mostly as a jump-shooter...

Ray Trying to Convince Himself He Made the Right Choice

Ray Allen sounds like a guy that's trying really, really hard to convince himself that he made the right decision — MrTripleDouble10 (@MrTrpleDouble10) October 22, 2012 I know that the Ray Allen thing has been beaten to death on every Celtics blog and most Heat blogs as well.

Ray Allen Says Celtics Used Him as 'Decoy,' Says He Didn't Get Respect From Team, Rajon Rondo

The cliche storyline of why people don't like the Miami Heat is that the Heat are a collection of big names that banded together to co-opt a championship at the expense of a true team. Ray Allen is helping that narrative pretty well. Allen, who was at first docile in his comments about why he left a Celtics team with which he won a title to be a bench player...

So a story came out today on ESPN in which Ray Allen admitted that his ankles have not completely healed following surgery last June and that he may require treatment as the season goes forward.  "I still deal with soreness in my ankle that I work through every day," Allen revealed, with just a week to go before the Heat open the season against the C's.  Could be...

On Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and the way the media shapes our understanding of professional athletes

This story isn’t meant to be primarily about Ray Allen, though he will stand as the prominent example in an inner debate I’m having with regards to a media phenomenon.My theory: Our views of athletes are distorted by the amount of time (and amount of friendliness with which) they speak to the media. Because Allen spent 15 minutes before every game holding court with reporters...
