Found October 19, 2013 on Red's Army:
In his story about the new verbal battle between LeBron James, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski unleashes this: Allen had his reasons, and they’re well-documented. In the end, Doc Rivers could no longer get Garnett and Pierce to recruit Allen to stay, sources told Yahoo. Neither player would call Allen, and only Pierce could be counted upon to even text him. The partnership had run its course, and Allen made the right, if unpopular, decision for himself. Ray Allen was such an insufferable bastard that Garnett and Pierce did not want him around anymore.  Process that for a minute. Ray Allen just might be the biggest fraud this franchise has ever known.

Toughness...

Toughness is an underrated quality in the NBA these days. To be contenders, teams need a good offense along with a strong defense, but they also need that one quality that eludes a lot of teams, and that is toughness. I've always felt that one of the reasons that the 2011 team faltered after Danny traded Perk was because, even though they still had KG, they lost much of their...
