For Celtics fans, losing Ray Allen in free agency is one thing. But losing Ray Allen in free agency to the Miami Heat is totally another. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Allen is catching heat for signing with the Heat.
And when he was asked about coming back to Boston as a member of the Heat, Allen said. “Forever, I’ll always be a Celtic, no matter what. I seen Big Baby (Glen Davis) down here during the playoffs watching (Game 5 vs. Miami) and I looked at him as a brother. We played against Perk (Kendrick Perkins) during the year, it doesn’t change. Posey came in the locker room once we lost Game 7 here and he’s forever a Celtic. Eddie House played down there (in Miami) and he came in the (Celtics) locker room every time he got the opportunity. In my mind, it never changes. I don’t care what people say about me, I’ll always stay true to the city of Boston and the fans there. They’ve been great to me. I’ll always consider that place home.”
That sounds all well and good Ray, but something tells us Boston fans won’t buy this.
