Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce, still hasn’t let go of the feelings of betrayal he felt was exhibited by former teammate and Miami Heat guard Ray Allen, when he took his beautiful jump shot to South Beach last summer. According to a story via HoopsWorld, Pierce and Allen have yet to have a conversation, with the Celtics forward conceding that his feelings were hurt.  “It definitely hurt me,” Pierce said. “Say we playthe Lakers for the championship, and two years later I go and sign with the Lakers. That’s the equivalent of what he did.” Allen says that he understands where his former teammate is coming from, but also says that Pierce knows he had to make the right move for him. “Those feelings are justified. I’m not on his team anymore, I’m not helping them win. “His feelings are hurt, but he knows, he understands. He and I can look at each other and exchange a glance, because he knows what I had to do. He knows.” Pierce and Kevin Garnett really need to get a grip. They’ve been in this league long enough to know how the business works, and more importantly, how tempting the lure of championship contention is. The Celtics had the opportunity to sign him and and decided not to, so the way I see it is, all was fair after that point, besides, who can say no to Pat Riley.
