Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Ray Allen to the Heat, watch.
Publicity stunt like when NFL teams bluff and cry wolf about going to Los Angeles
Celtics are still willing and able to pay Allen top dollar, and on a longer contract. Anyway, I am sure that in his heart Ray feels much like Steve Nash, who said that while he was also fielding offers from the Lakers, his long-time career rivarly with Los Angeles makes it too hard on his heart to realistically suit up in a Lakers jersey. I feel this is what went so wrong for Odom in Dallas, and if anything, why I respect him ALL THE more for having play over 50 games as dreaded Maverick!! Rivarly is not small thing in the NBA, teams harbor grudges from generations past that are almost irrelevant until revived by some kind of grievance. The Boston Celtics have had Lebron for their rival for 25 post-season games, and Ray Allen has been a big part of that. I do of course think that Ray Allen is way to nice a guy to play for those bad-attitude, poor-sport Celtics, but he has been there for too long to part company, especially when they are also holding the best contract options in the league. Often players chose between chemistry and money, and in this instance Boston has both for Ray, so I think its just a publicity stunt. I am actually more surprised to see the laughing stock Nets suddenly trying to become relevant. Much like the Clippers, they saved their money, bided their time, and have a bright future. It is a trip to see so many bottom-of-the-barrel teams resurging! The Knicks? The Bulls? The Nets? The Clippers? The Grizzlies? Four or five years ago these teams were embarrassingly mediocre, and now? They have money, they have talent, they have attention, and they have potential. Next season will be interesting to say the least
Crybaby Howard should be sent to the Bobcats for being such a primadonna! Who would thought that at 38 Steve Nash would still be one of the most coveted players in the league! Welcome back to Los Angeles Lamar, we missed you!!
