1. Celtics at Heat (Oct. 30th)
This was already going to one of the best games on this year’s schedule but when Ray Allen decided to sign with the Heat this match up just got 10 times better. These teams already didn’t like each other. Reports were Allen left the Celtics because of his poor relationship with Rajon Rondo. I am sure Rondo will have an extra chip on his shoulder for this game. As will Kevin Garnett who decided to stay with Boston.
2.Knicks at Nets (Nov. 1st)
What a way to open the brand new building for the Brooklyn Nets. Have your rivals the New York Knicks come to your place. The Nets have had a huge off season and many believe the Nets have a better roster right now. The Nets resigned Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries. They also got All Star Joe Johnson in a trade with the Hawks.
3.Lakers at Suns (Nov. 16th)
This game will be all about Steve Nash returning to Phoenix. Nash was very loyal to the Suns but in the end he just wanted to play for...
BEST OF MAXIM
When Ray Allen left the Boston Celtics to join the Miami Heat in free agency many wonder why? Well it appears Allen did not get along on the best of terms with Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and management. As you see below Doc Rivers says blame him for Rondo leaving.
There is no question when he is on his game Rondo is one of the best point guards in the NBA. He is...
On Friday, the Boston Celtics official website released an exclusive interview with Paul Pierce. The Captain chimed in on a variety of topics. Most noteably, Ray Allen’s departure, the C’s additions this off-season, his injured knee and much more. Here’s some of the highlights… Regarding the Celtics finish last season: Pierce said that he was [...]
Every time I reference Ray Allen on Facebook or Twitter, I got a flock of flack from Boston Celtics fans who are eager to proclaim they’ve moved on from the Ray-Ray saga. Many have asked, why I continue to harp on the Allen departure? My answer is simple, Ray Allen has been my favorite member [...]
It’s not too often that a player leaves a team via free agency and that player’s former coach shoulders the blame for said player leaving. Apparently in the case of Ray Allen leaving the Boston Celtics for seemingly greener pastures (pardon the pun), Doc Rivers is feeling a bit guilty about some of the decisions [...]
Over the last couple of weeks, reports have surfaced in the media stating that the reason Boston Celtics veteran shooting guard Ray Allen, decided to take his talents to South Beach, was due to a deteriorating relationship with Boston’s starting point guard Rajon Rondo. Celtics bench boss Doc Rivers, felt he had to clarify the situation and in an interview that was published Wednesday...
Another must read Doc Rivers article from Adrian Wojnarowski, this one is full of a very candid Doc talking about the reason Ray left, a lot of them are the rumors that were reported recently. Doc also says he takes full blame for Ray Allen's decision to leave.
Essentially what Doc says is Ray left for a few reasons.
1. He was upset that Rondo had the ball so much and his role...
Earlier this NBA off-season former Boston Celtics sharpshooter Ray Allen spurned a more lucrative contract offer by the Celtics and signed with conference rival the Miami Heat. At the time many cited a rocky relationship between Allen and Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo as a key reason for Allen’s decision. In a recent interview with Y! Sports [...]
When Ray Allen left Boston for the Miami Heat, my first thought was: “Damn we’re going to miss his clutch 3′s.” My second thought was: “Damn I’m really going to miss his sweet J’s.” No..not those J’s-his Jordans. During his time with the Celtics, Ray wore some sweet Air Jordan player exclusives. I doubt we will ever see a better selection of kicks than we did...
Paul Pierce gave his first interview of the offseason to Molly McGrath over at Celtics.com where he offered his thoughts on a multitude of topics, including the departure of former Celtic Ray Allen:“It’s going to be a little weird. Ray made the best decision for him. That’s what it is all about. When you are a free agent you make the best decision for you. He’ll always...

Ty Ray, the co-host with a glorious voice, joins me, the co-host who sounds like he’s meant for writing rather than radio. Together, we’ll discuss...
Doc Rivers said that his decisions to remove Ray Allen from the starting lineup and give Rajon Rondo total freedom on offense and leadership were what helped lead Allen to leave the Celtics.
As soon as the Boston Celtics lost in the Eastern Conference Finals to the Miami Heat, there was already a whisper in everyone’s ear that Ray Allen wanted to sign with the 2012 NBA Champions. The thing is, no one really believed it. Fast forward to July, free agency opened and Ray Allen DID [...]
