Found July 10, 2012 on Pass The Pill:
(Mike Cassese/Reuters Pictures) Just a week after signing future Hall of Famer Ray Allen, the Heat bring in another sharpshooter in Rashard Lewis. Despite Lewis’ struggles the last few seasons, he brings another perimeter shooter to make plays while the defense concentrates on Lebron and Dwayne Wade. Lewis amnestied a few weeks ago after being traded to New Orleans for Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza. Lewis, a 39 percent three point shooter, reunites with Ray Allen in their glory days in Seattle. Which direction will Miami go after this signing? After losing out to Marcus Camby yesterday to the Knicks, look for Miami to continue their big man pursuit that they have longed for. But in the meantime, opposing defenses will have headaches night after night having to focus on Lebron and Wade and still have to contain terrific shooters in Allen and Lewis. The post Rashard Lewis to sign with Miami appeared first on Pass The Pill.

For Ray, It Wasn’t Business, It Was Personal

I completely understand why Ray Allen chose to sign with the Miami Heat. He gets to go to a team that will contend for a championship every year for the rest of his career, his game is made easier for his aging legs as he’ll likely have many more open, spot-up jumpers with the Heat, and not running through multiple screens to get open. He’s going to Miami, where he can play golf...

Ray Allen: ‘Forever, I’ll always be a Celtic’

It was never about money. The Celtics offered Ray Allen a two-year deal worth $12 million. Miami offered him what they could, which was only $9 million over three years.

The feeling of betrayal Boston fans are coping with...
