    Grown azz men making millions of dollars but we want them to respond like soap opera w itches. I guess I do have something in common with millionaire athletes. I've never left a job where everybody liked me and I liked everybody, BUT NOBODY GIVES A DAMM. I wonder if these guys at ESPN like everyone at ESPN. I wonder when they leave the station do they call and talk to all their former coworkers. Yea, I know - NOBODY CARES.

    To be honest, I guess it’s not easy to get along with Kevin Paul and Rondo. All of these guys including Ray himself have big characters. They all are spectacularly cool dudes.

    Ray: Complains that Boston didn't want to pay him enough
    Also Ray: Takes a low tier contract

    Be real, you joined Miami cuz you were salty of not getting enough money, so just to get back at them you take less and join a loaded Miami team. If it was indeed a money issue like he said it was, he would've joined Memphis or something (Memphis was a competitive playoff team back then). Boston guys are indeed salty, but Ray has to listen to himself and be 100% honest.

    People forget Boston tried to trade him 3 times, where was the loyalty from the team to Ray? Ray brought them a championship and the next year you try to trade him off?

    Why I feel like Stephen a Smith is questioning Allen's integrity bc I'm pretty sure he said Boston could've spent the money they didn't want to that's end of discussion to me

    Ray Allen has put In hella work his whole Career An was a beast before coming a straight 3 point shooter, he was on teams early on an couldn’t get any chips, he won with the Celtics but it was obviously coming to an end An they all were going to retire in jus a couple more seasons anyway so he went to the best place to try an get a couple more rings before retiring, he didn’t get along with Rondo an they were reducing his role an even looked to trade him,so why KG an Rondo still so butthurt about this is beyond me, Ray had a long Great Career An when he knew they were all older anyway he went to the team that he knew could get him another ring nothing is wrong with that especially for someone who already put in legendary work, 1 of the best Shooters ever, was always classy throughout his Career, so I’d say at that point he can decide what he wants cause he is solidified, Fuck KG an Rondo actin like Bitches over this shit 🤷🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️👊🏾😤

    Why is SAS asking Ray, why KG and Rondo have Animus against him?? He needs to ask them that question. Ray is clear he has moved on, and at the time he made a basketball decision. He has NO ILL feelings towards anyone. He not carrying that BAG, they are. It is not his problem. SAS needs to address the source of the problem.

    If he goes to Memphis or Minnesota...... there would be no beef. It’s cuz he went and teamed up with Lebron and wade.... AND GOT ANOTHER RING..... that’s why those guys are Salty!!!!
