PLAYERS: Ray AllenRashard Lewis
TEAMS: Miami Heat
Yes, that LMFAO song with Lil’ Jon called “Shots” is what ran through my head when I realized that Rashard Lewis and Ray Allen had both officially signed with the Miami Heat on Wednesday. I tweeted this yesterday, and there was a range of reactions from, “Ed you’ve lost your damned mind,” to “OMG that [...]The post Starting Lineups: The Miami Heat Signed Ray Allen And Rashard Lewis (SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS) appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.

Allen, Lewis ready to help the Heat repeat

MIAMI Ray Allens number never will hang above the parquet floor. That became assured when Allen, who had played in Boston for five eventful seasons and helped the Celtics to the 2008 title, bolted to sign with rival Miami as a free agent. But hows this for a way for Heat president Pat Riley to welcome Allen, whose emotions clearly have been torn, to his new city? We hope (Allen...

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. If Allen wanted to make as much cash as he could before ending his NBA career, he would still be wearing green. Instead, he has decided to sleep with the enemy. The feeling of betrayal Boston fans are coping with...

Ray Allen Spurning Celtics, Signing With Miami a Harsh Reminder That Everyone Wants to Be Pursued

It's the woman who wonders about her marriage -- not who she married, but how. Whether she shouldn't have just fallen into it, but rather made him chase her. Made him think about how much he wanted her before they were into the grind of cleaning dishes, fixing the car, living a life where they're a good fit but hardly ever enamored by how well they go together. It'...

On Ray Allen and Loyalty in Sports

Loyalty in sports is an often questioned topic. Should players stay in the town where they were made famous and where the fans backed them vociferously, or is playing for a team simply a business decision? The NBA has seen its share of star players changing teams often, which occurred when Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett joined Paul Pierce in Boston in 2007. They won the title in their...

Rashard Lewis agrees to two year deal with Heat

Veteran free agent forward Rashard Lewis has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Miami Heat, according to reports from Y! Sports Marc Spears: Heat have agreed to a two-year deal with forward Rashard Lewis, sources tell Yahoo! Sports. — Marc J.

Benedict Allen

  With the chance to digest the Ray Allen to Miami deal over the last few days, and the reluctance to post a spur of the moment instant reaction article (partially thanks to a crashed Hard Drive) the last few days have given me an opportunity to really think about the details of what went down, and it’s still pretty similar to how I felt when I heard the news for the first time...

Report: Ray Allen Removed From Starting Lineup by Rondo’s Request to Coaching Staff

Irrevocable Differences with Rondo was Ray Allen’s number one reason why he left Ray Allen has taken less money to join the Miami Heat after departing Boston.  Many have said that there are many reasons for this, and one of the main reasons was Allen’s deteriorating relationship with the Celtics’ starting point guard Rajon Rondo.

Celtics trying to sign-and-trade for OJ Mayo, Courtney Lee

Please please please please pleeeease, let one of these happen! With Ray Allen's departure and Bradley's uncertain status for the beginning of the regular season, the Celtics desperately need another guard. O.J. Mayo or Courtney Lee would be perfect in my opinion. Last year O.J. Mayo averaged 12.6 points a game for Memphis while shooting 40% from the floor and 36% from...

Ray Allen Likely Cost Himself Chance at Having Jersey Retired in Boston by Leaving Celtics (Podcast)

Ray Allen is officially a member of the Miami Heat, and while he may be justified in leaving Boston to chase a ring with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, that decision will come at a price. By leaving -- and leaving to join the rival Heat, no less -- Allen very well may have said goodbye not only to the city of Boston, but also to any chance he had at one day seeing his jersey hanging...

Ray could learn from Fab

In the wake of Ray Allen's departure to the Celtics' hated enemy and his comments that he will always be a Celtic,  I thought it would be good to show a REAL Celtic's reaction to the Heat.  As a Celtic, you HATE them.  You don't join them.  It appears that a Heat fan with the same last name as Fab offered to be one of Fab's biggest fans. To his credit, Fab...

Lewis joins World Champion Heat

The Miami Heat stumbled on to a plan during the playoffs and it looks like they're going to keep that plan going through next season and beyond.  When Chris Bosh was injured the Heat modified their line up from two power forwards to moving Shane Battier in to the starting line up.  When Chris Bosh returned, the Heat moved Udonis Haslem to the bench and stayed with their...
